 about me 

Award winning director Marcel Walz started directing while attending film school at the age of seventeen.   Marcel is a lifelong fan of horror films and has worked extensively in that genre. In 2019 he branched out by directing the film 'Blind' which is a drama thriller.  His feature film Blood Feast, a remake of the Herschell Gordon Lewis classic, played to international audiences around the world, including being handpicked by London Fright Fest to be a part of their festival. Since moving to California he has directed two feature films. “Rootwood”, which has been hailed as a genius mix of found footage and cinematic shots, and “Blind”, which has received rave reviews along with a sold out premiere screening.  His love of both horror and beauty create a unique mix of style that is all his own.
