Local independent filmmaker Casey T. Malone (Absolutely No1 Films) released the second film in his Blood of the Witch trilogy on Sunday, March 25. Fortuna is a silent film, shot entirely on an iPhone, which showcases Toledo-area locations such as the Historic Woodlawn Cemetery and Sidecut Metropark. Malone is a Maumee native who studied film at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh. He served as writer, director, and editor, and was also the creative force behind the movie’s musical score.
Described as “fairy tale macabre,” Fortuna employs the talents of several local actors as well as artist John Baker, who developed the unique graphics and illustrations used in the film’s special effects.
