Journal Entry: Sat Apr 23, 2016, 6:06 PM







The film I just directed, "Phantasm Ravager" made the cover of this months issue of Rue Morgue magazine. Its an honor to be part of this film franchise and an honor to make the cover. I always dreamt of my name making the magazine and here it is! In addition it bids farewell to actor and Tall Man of the Phantasm films, Angus Scrimm.
Please check it out at newsstands and bookstores on MAY 1st, online version available now.

I haven't read it yet so hopefully I don't sound as crazy as I really am.

  Well, I have been absent from deviantart for sometime due to health issues. In May of last year I somehow contracted a super-bug which has attacked my insides and has sent me into the hospital 7 times since. It has been rough and the most pain I have ever felt, and although there is no cure, I can learn how to manage and try my best to beat it. If you reached out with a message or note I apologize for not being able to get back to you as I deal with the healing process. Please feel free to reach out again with any comments or questions, really do appreciate it.
  With all that it has given me time to create tons of new art. So much new art that I'd like to publish a new art book with half of it being unseen new stuff. I hope to post more regularly now as I have a bunch ready to go.
 In December I received my new iPad Pro and the apple pen and I got to say I absolutely love it and it has sped up my productivity by double. The look of pencil and ink with the new pen and the ability to shade has been something I had hoped for as I hated the look of past products. So hopefully I'll be able to share some new art and even some new comic work in the near future.

PHANTASM V: RAVAGER

Journal Entry: Thu Mar 27, 2014, 11:09 AM







I guess the cat is out of the bag.  Been pretty absent from DA for awhile now due to this secret project but now I can come out and say it...

I am director and co-writer on the new addition to the Phantasm franchise... PHANTASM V: RAVAGER

I have always been a huge PHAN of the series and creator DON COSCARELLI was generous enough to open his twisted world to me and I am loving every minute of it. Below is a link to the trailer and press release on ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY! So mind numbing to see this stuff finally hit the light of day, I am so excited...

insidemovies.ew.com/2014/03/27…


Here is an excerpt from the press release, and of course I can not reveal any details on the film itself...

"EW can confirm that Phantasm: Ravager is directed by filmmaker and artist David Hartman, whose résuméincludes the TV show Transformers Prime and the Rob Zombie videos American Witch and Lords of Salem. Hartman also worked on the films Bubba Ho-Tep andJohn Dies at the End, both of which were directed byPhantasm overlord Don Coscarelli. Coscarelli himself cowrote Phantasm: Ravager with Hartman and produced it through his Silver Spheres company with executive producer Brad Baruh.

“I felt it was time to let someone else play with my train set,” said Coscarelli in a statement. “David and I go back to my film Bubba Ho-Tep. He did terrific visual effects on that, and more recently created a wild animated sequence and some amazing visual effects in my most recent film, John Dies at the End. Our aesthetics are in sync and he’s quite an experienced director in his own right.”

“Having worked with Don before, and being a huge fan of the entire Phantasmfranchise, it was a great honor to do Ravager with him,” said Hartman. “This film is a real turning point in the series. There’s real closure for the core characters that I hope fans will respond to.”

The cast of Phantasm: Ravager includes Angus Scrimm and Reggie Bannister, who have played, respectively, the Tall Man and luckless ice cream vendor Reggie in each previous film. They are joined by Michael Baldwin, who played the character Mike in each franchise entry except for Phantasm II (in which, aside from some flashback scenes, he was played by James LeGros). “We were fortunate to shoot amazing new sequences with horror icon Angus Scrimm,” said Hartman. “He has terrific scenes with Reggie and Mike  that are truly powerful.” Series regulars Bill Thornbury and Kat Lester also appear in the film, whose release date has yet to be announced.

Phantasm: Ravager was shot in and around southern California over the past two years. “The Phantasm films have been a guerrilla operation for decades now, totally outside of the studio system,” Coscarelli said. “We do them for the fans, and I think Ravager will definitely please them. In the past few years several studios have made offers to remake Phantasm with large budgets, but the fans were very vocal that they wanted the original cast to return and finish this iteration of the story with class.”"
