Let's talk about it.

V/H/S: VIRAL director Gregg Bishop shares his films-including DANCE OF THE DEAD and THE OTHER SIDE with insight, clips and trailers from the films. We find out how he discovered Jaimie Alexander, the impact of STAR WARS, and learn about his Hitchcock/Angry Birds mash-up collaboration with G4, THE BIRDS OF ANGER. It is an insightful conversation that traces the path from amateur filmmaking to a career in Hollywood, on The Insiders with Sebastian Twardosz.

Gregg Bishop grew up in Powder Springs, Georgia and started making movies with his father's Super 8 film cameras when he was 7 years old. He completed over 50 short films by age 16. Bishop attended McEachern High School where he wrote & directed his first full-length feature, a spy-thriller, at 17 years of age. Bishop attended the USC School of Cinematic Arts in the Film Production Program. When he was a junior at the filmschool, he wrote and directed the short film Voodoo, which is now screened at orientation for incoming USC film students along with the short films Electronic Labyrinth THX 1138 4EB by George Lucas and The Lift by Robert Zemeckis. After graduating from the University of Southern California filmschool, Bishop took the profits he made from his short film Voodoo and financed his feature film The Other Side himself with $15,000. The supernatural action/thriller starred Jaimie Alexander in her first leading role and premiered at the Slamdance Film Festival in Park City, Utah where it was picked up for a 2007 theatrical release. In 2008, Bishop began developing the movie as a TV series at Fox Television Studios. Bishop directed and produced Dance of the Dead in 2008, starring Jared Kusnitz, Lucas Till, Blair Redford, Laura Slade Wiggins and Justin Welborn. The movie had its World Premiere at the SXSW Film Festival and was hand-picked by director Sam Raimi for distribution through Lions Gate Entertainment and Ghost House Pictures. Bishop wrote and directed The Birds of Anger starring Jaimie Alexander for NBCUniversal G4Films in 2011.
