Your costume suggestion
It’s all about making movies for you, not about how you look, which is why you play it cool with a black shirt unbuttoned at the neck and rolled up at the elbows, blue jeans and designer cowboy boots. You don’t like to be disturbed while you’re making “art” so you hide behind dark glasses. Chewing on a toothpick helps you think.
You loved filmmaking from an early age, often recording behind the scenes footage of your family (which was unappreciated during the ‘divorce years’). Your first project was a romantic comedy which used to be your favourite genre. However, after being exposed to some egomaniacal indie circuit actresses you later decided that killing them off in horror movies would be much more fun. Although you’ve made over ten features with some critical acclaim, you’ve never won an award and never been given a blockbuster budget...
INTRODUCE YOURSELF AT THE START OF THE GAME BY READING THIS
I’m Eli Cronenberg, world famous horror film director and close personal friend to Lucas Cameronburg. Lucas was like a father to me, but unfortunately that doesn’t mean I’ll be inheriting his estate, which is fine by me. I wouldn’t want all those Goldguys anyway - I’m proud to say I’ve never even touched a Goldguy before let alone been awarded one. I arrived here yesterday, as Lucas wanted me to sift through the 100 or so takes of Marilyn’s goodbye wave. I was staying on as an advisor for the scene where everyone gets trapped inside the basement of an abandoned warehouse and eaten by zombies, but that was cut at the last minute. Ironically the studio have asked me to direct the film now, and that scene is so going back in!
