ONEONTA – Cuyle Carvin, the Oneonta native and veteran of “Criminal Minds” and “Law and Order: SVU” has started his own film production company, By The C films.
The company, created from his love of low-budget horror movies, is currently producing a series of horror films in the “Dark Corners” anthology. In addition to the six shorts in the anthology, By The C has also produced four full-length films, available on the streaming site Vimeo.
Many people become interested in learning about film production from an early age. Be it from watching the old films and comparing the techniques to the new ones, or from the new generation of people who learn their craft from Youtube videos and upload their creations to that site once they have mastered (or as they are learning) their craft.
Some choose to get specialist training in the subject after the fact from sites like friendsinfilm.com to give them a creative edge, regardless of the budget. Low budget film making provides a number of strategic choices to be made, choices that then help someone create their own unique style that can stick with them regardless of where their production company goes next.
Sometimes those in this line of work choose to remain in low budget production due to the love of the craft. From these constraints, wonderful work can be produced.
In December, Carvin was featured on five episodes of the CBS soap “The Bold and the Beautiful” as Dr. Ryan Jones.
