About the Director: 

Christopher Witherspoon's desire to make movies started at age 12 when he first saw "Star wars". He persuaded his parents to buy him a Super 8 film camera and began making his own little movies. He worked for many production companies, in every area of film production, gaining a full understanding of the process. In the early 80's he worked as a production assistant on such films as "Ghost Soldiers" "Angel" and "Hollywood Vice Cop". Always a fan of horror movies, he persuaded John Carl Buechler, head of MMI Effects, to give him a job. By age 19 he was designing effects on the films "Re_Animator", "Troll", "From Beyond" and many others. In the following years, witherspoon returned to working in production on several independent films in positions ranging from production coordinator to production accountant. In 1995, he co =founded Yellow Brick Road Entertainment. There he wrote, produced and directed several music videos, short films and coiming attractions for companies like Solar Records, Center Films, Pirate/Giant Records and Turner pictures. During this time, witherspoon produced and directed "Hubble" a television pilot that was picked up by "The Learning Channel" and was to be produced in Portland, Oregon. "Hubble" was a live action show about the adventures of a group of rag-tag misfit toys. But sadly, due to budgetary issues at "The "Learning Channel", the series was cancelled just a week before filming was about to begin. Looking for a fresh start, he decided not to return to Hollywood and now calls the city of Portland his home. In 2000 he produced and directed a drama entitled "Middle Man". Finally completed in 2003, the next year, the film played in seven Festivals and received critical acclaim. In 2006, he started a new film production company,"Big Screen Ventures", with RAGE, a horror-suspense-thriller as its first production. The film centers on a thirty-something suburbanite, Dennis Twist, whom unintentionaly provokes the wrath of a mysterious , homicidal motorcyclist. Next up for Witherspoon and Big Screen Ventures is "Head Of The Tale", a horror anthology in the vain of HBO's old "Tales From The Crypt ". The screenplay is complete and is expected to go before cameras in the summer of 2010.

Film synopsis: 
<p>      RAGE, a raw-nerve, suspense thriller film from independent filmmaker Christopher R. Witherspoon, combines a compelling story with nail biting action. The film is heavily influenced by the 1970's movie classic &quot;Duel&quot; by Steven Speilberg and Witherspoon's own personal demons. Set in Portland, Oregon, &quot;Rage&quot; delivers an explosive and controversial action packed thriller. </p> <p>     The story begins when Dennis Twist, a 30-something man who lives in a &quot;Spielbergian&quot; suburb just outside of Portland says goodbye to his beautiful and loving wife Crystal and heads into town. There he unintentionally provokes the wrath of a mysterious motorcyclist. The confrontation between the two sets in motion a daylong battle of cat and mouse. Beginning in the form of harmless taunts; quickly escalating into something more serious, then...into something unimaginable! </p>
