After briefly studying film at the College of Santa Fe in New Mexico, Dave Campfield made the difficult decision to leave, so he could pursue his film career.
On the basis of his first script, Campfield won over a Hollywood agent. However, while receiving across the board positive reviews from the studios, the script remained in limbo. Having grown disheartened with Hollywood gridlock, Campfield opted to go it alone and produce a feature himself. That film, Dark Chamber, had a successful run in the film festivals, and was picked up for distribution by Pop Cinema for a February 2008 release.
After signing the deal with Pop Cinema, Campfield soon inked a deal on another feature, Caesar and Otto's Summer Camp Massacre. A throwback to the Comedy/Horror cross-overs of the 40s and 50s, the film co-stars horror icons Felissa Rose, Brinke Stevens and Joe Estevez. It received a limited theatrical run in September 2011 followed by a DVD release.
To date, Campfield's films have garnered positive reviews from such media outlets as aintitcool news, Film Threat, Fangoria and Video Watchdog magazine amongst many others.
Campfield is currently in post production on the next installment of the Caesar and Otto series, "Caesar & Otto's Deadly Xmas". The spoof features new additions to the Caesar and Otto family, including cult super stars Linnea Quigley, Lloyd Kaufman and Debbie Rochon. Incidentally, Campfield and Rochon were both featured on the cover of the 2010 Honeys and Hunks of Horror Calendar.
Campfield is currently readying his next production, a psychological horror entitled Fear the Reaper which already placed amongst the finalists at a previous Slamdance Horror screenwriting competition.
