Mini Bio (1)

BC Furtney is a screenwriter/director/lyricist/musician, known for his work in the independent film, music video, hard rock and ambient genres. In 2002, he co-wrote and produced the debut album for L.A.-based punk act Bull Lee. In 2003, Heyday Records released the Furtney-produced single, "A Gentle Form of Murder" on their label compilation of new songs, titled Forget the Radio. In 2004, BC emerged as Best Film winner in the first of the popular "Fangoria Blood Drive" series, a DVD collection of short films hosted by Rob Zombie. His work was again prominently featured in "Fangoria Blood Drive II," the company's follow-up release, hosted by Mistress Juliya. BDII contained Furtney's most controversial work up to that point, "Disposer." The film was a bloody tongue-in-cheek take on fantasy gone awry, and was resoundingly popular online. On the DVD's commentary track, then-Fangoria editor Tony Timpone tells the story of Disposer's fracturous reception at that year's Montreal Fantasiafest, wherein half the crowd vacated in disgust, while the other half cheered raucously. Aside from its DVD release, Disposer continued screening on multiple continents, still garnering festival requests three years after its release. Furtney broke from filmmaking in 2005 to record and tour as the bassist of Bull Lee. In 2007, he wrote lyrics, played bass guitar, sang backups, and conceived the album art for the band's self-titled CD. He opened the 2007 New York City Horror Film Festival with a teaser-trailer called "Y," its script garnering 3rd place in the festival's screenplay category, as well as honorable mention for another screenplay, "The Horrifying Ordeal of Pilar Mallard." In 2009, he returned to filmmaking with "New Terminal Hotel." The new-styled noir film featured Fright Night's Stephen Geoffreys, scream queen Tiffany Shepis, Ghost World's Ezra Buzzington, and Lost Boys' Corey Haim. The cast and BC appeared at that year's Fangoria Weekend of Horrors L.A. in April, which turned out to be the final WOH under the classic Fangoria banner.

His debut novel, Scarla, was released by Comet Press in 2011 and a sequel, Maimstream, was announced for 2013 release under the same banner. He wrote, produced and directed the feature film, Do Not Disturb (2013), distributed by Image Entertainment and featuring Fright Night's Stephen Geoffreys, scream queen Tiffany Shepis, and a final performances by Corey Haim.

Personal Quotes (1)

The way I write isn't visually or stylistically dependent. It's usually one character that starts talking, and that points me where the story's going.
