Below: Film Director Carlos Rosales along with actors on the set getting ready to film inside the beautiful "Painted Lady" house. We asked Film Director Carlos Rosales how he felt about film production so far. He answered " The story has good plot, but working with actors who have never acted before is difficult. We could not afford to contract actors with our budget, but we are grateful for our friends and their colaboration on this independent production. I wish I could reach Hollywood ,but seeing Alfonso Cuarón a Mexican director and his latest film "Gravity" or Guillermo del Toro another Mexican film director in movies like "Pacific Rim" give me encouragement. They inspire me and my sons to continue making this independent movie. This is a family production with myself directing, my son Roberto Rosales, being the camera man and editor, and my son Christopher adpating to story into a screen play for the actors. It took around a year to create the story followed by the characters where my son Christopher and I came up with their personality. With the movie I can see that Columbus, MS has the perfect setting to create movies locally or out of the state, even in Hollywood could come here to film. Columbus, has a lot of potential." When asked when the film would be finished Carlos replied "We are in the procees of filming the last three scenes to finish the movie. We are still doing casting for extras for the last three. Two of the shots will take place in Columbus, Mississippi and the last one will be in New Orleans." "We talked to Marius Zahan from Romania in the Transylvania area who said that he lives within a few miles of the actual castle of Dracula. He said he grew up in that area and felt so excited and honored to see that someone was filming a film based on the area where he is from. Now he is willing to colaborate with us to improve the quality of the story. If we don't reach Hollywood, it doesn't matter, what is important is to draw attention to Columbus and what it has to offer we are proud of this production and everyone that is involved. When we finish we will have a public showing and invite everyone along with the details of when it will be shown. Thank you everyone including alll of our friends, actors, and the community for their support! And an extra special thanks to MUW for allowing us to film on their campus and Jennifer Miller, owner of "The Painted Lady' Bed and Breakfast . Rolling,....... and action!"

“La Madame” is a story about a family that has lived throughout the centuries as descendents of vampires. It is a compelling tale that spans decades, continents, and generations, drawing the viewer into a world of secrecy and violence.
The story begins in Transylvania. The year is 1876. Two beautiful sisters, (Draguta & Dumitra), live together in a secluded castle set high above a sleepy village shrouded by mist in the middle of the woods , isolated from any contact with the villagers. The castle is inhabited only by the two sisters whom are only looked at as masters by the devoted servants. One of the sisters has a beautiful infant daughter of (Antanasia).
A cloud of dread shrouds their serene and solitary existence of the run village. The peasants in the town below are terrorized by a string of mysterious murders. Victims are left with their necks pierced, a bloody scarlet stream dripping from the lifeless corpse. There is only one conclusion – vampires roam the outskirts of the villages at night. Suspicion leads the villagers to the sisters, (Draguta & Dumitra) who are branded as a threat to the village.
A vengeance crazed of townspeople ready to restore order to their village to secure their families from such a malicious threat and had enough. Wielding torches and pitchforks they gathered a group to rid their village of the threat once and for all. They ventured into the darkness no matter what the cost to protect their families. As they approached the castle they would get a chill of evil within the trees that looked as if they had trapped souls within them that were trying to escape as they stretched out covering the path towards the castle as if to cover and protect it.
A shocking twist takes you on a journey that makes ” La Madame” memorable long after this film ends. The elegant Victorian setting, evolving into the height of Belle Epoch grandeur, is a lavish feast for those looking for an original story told within the movie experience.
