Mini Bio (1)

P.J. Starks was born and raised in Owensboro, Kentucky. In 2007 he began taking filmmaking seriously by writing and directing the horror film Hallows Eve: Slaughter on Second Street. Due to the local success of his first professional effort he was asked to help David Breckman (Monk and SNL) with his directorial debut film Murder In Kentucky during the 2009 International Mystery Writers Festival. Starks received a Co-Producer credit as well as helping co-edit the short. In the summer of 2010 Starks wrote and directed his passion project A Mind Beside Itself, a psychological romance. He also worked with Lee Goldberg (The Glades and Psych) on his short film Remaindered, of which he was director of photography and co-editor. Between 2011 and 2013 P.J. worked as associate producer on the feature films Reality and Three Tears on Bloodstained Flesh for Indiana filmmakers as well as the popular web-series The Book of Dallas.

In 2012 Starks created the popular event Unscripted at the Daviess County Public Library where he served as a coordinator until becoming more of an adviser in 2014. Starks and Unscripted were featured on PBS in 2014. The event is still catering to the Owensboro community, giving local and regional indie filmmakers an outlet to screen their short works.

In 2014 P.J. co-created the Unscripted Film School where community members were given the chance to become production assistants on two short films produced in the library. He served as producer on the espionage thriller Mistrust and the short horror film Lucky that would go on to screen across the US. That same year he would create/co-write and direct a segment in the feature horror anthology Volumes of Blood. He would also write and direct The Preylude, an online short that expanded the world of VOB.

In 2015, VOB would go on to garner much acclaim from critics and win multiple awards at film festivals across the country. The film found distribution through LC Films and released on April 26th, 2016. Starks also produced the 2015 critically acclaimed fan film The Confession of Fred Krueger directed by Scream Factory and HorrorHound artist Nathan Thomas Milliner. In 2016 he conceived, produced and co-wrote the follow up anthology Volumes of Blood: Horror Stories that would also go on to receive critical acclaim and land itself on six 'Best Film of 2016' lists that included Fangoria. In December of 2016 Starks would partner with his good friend and fellow producer Eric Huskisson to create the production company Blood Moon Pictures, LLC.

VOBHS would go on to find distribution through the LA based production company Petri Entertainment in 2017. That same year Starks would find himself producing a myriad of productions which included a short film called The First Date, written by his late friend and colleague Brian Storm. He would also serve as producer on the horror anthologies 10/31 and Cryptids, the telephonic terror feature Close Calls, the horror comedy Butcher the Bakers and the supernatural horror flick Deimosimine. His company Blood Moon Pictures would partner with Mythmaker Games to create the table top card game 'VOB: Body Count' based on the Volumes of Blood universe. Starks is continuing to look for producing opportunities and he recently announced that BMP is in early development on Volumes of Blood 3, that begins pre-production in the fall of 2017.
