It is officially October, and we can't think of a better way to kick it off than by featuring TB's own: Jason Brooks!
If you don't know, Jason is not just Tori Belle's VP of Ecommerce and Creative, but an actor as well. With over 20 years of experience in the film industry and countless credits under his belt, it is safe to say that his passion for storytelling is a fire with no signs of going out.
He is most well-known for his role as Jason Voorhees in the independent crowd-funded films Friday the 13th: Vengeance, Friday the 13th: Roseblood, and the brand-new Vengeance 2: Bloodlines which is also his triumphant directorial debut.
When not working tirelessly to ensure the backstage, website, and marketing channels are a well-oiled machine, he's been putting in the work to make Vengeance 2: Bloodlines the best film possible. With the legacy of Friday the 13th films of the past looming large, crafting a story that fans of the source material would resonate with while bringing something new to the table was a huge undertaking.
Never backing down from the challenge, he assembled a massive crew of over 200 people ranging from actors to extras, producers to PA's, catering to stunts, and a seemingly never-ending list of celebrity actors and alumni. At the same time, he was aiding in the production of props, costumes, and of course playing the iconic Jason Voorhees, which alone comes with a flurry of physical challenges and fan expectations.
Luckily his and the makeup team's jobs were made a little easier thanks to all of the makeup used on the set of Vengeance 2: Bloodlines being graciously donated to the production by Tori Belle Cosmetics. So next time you click on your Magnetude Magnetic Lashes or crack open a timeless warm palette, know that you are wearing cinema-quality makeup.
When watching the film, keep a sharp eye out for cameos from TB CEO, Laura Hunter, VP of Sales & Communications, Jaclyn Mains, and several of our wonderful affiliates! If you are a fan of Friday the 13th, horror in general, or want the bragging rights for when you bump into Jason at TB Conference 2023, check out Vengeance 2: Bloodlines for free on YouTube today!
