Women in Horror Month Highlight: Cristin Azure

Please tell us what work you have done

Oh goodness well I’ve done all sorts of things but I guess I’m a custom crafter at heart. I built the first hospital in Heartsfield International when I was 24 and I got the job because I was a woman. Imagine that!

I have worked for people, I work with people and I work very well with the difficult peoples, but I have been self-employed all my life. I make my living in the TV & film Industry by precision driving and stunt support with picture cars. I’m a creature actor, do consulting for productions and produce independent films.

What made you want to work as an actress/filmmaker/creator?

I found seasons 1 & 2 of The Walking Dead on Netflix and I recognized their filming locations was land I grew up on. So I started submitting to be the background. I ended up working seasons 4 & 5 and made it to the cover of the 2017 Walker calendar and more. Still waiting on those residual checks to start rolling in but I had fun and meanwhile...

I met some remarkable talent in holding tents all over Georgia that wanted to create projects of their own and I made a way for over 27 productions to create their films in one multipurpose location for relatively free in just over a year and a half. I learned a few things then and a lot more since and still trying to figure stuff out but I love bringing people together and creating against all odds.

What are some of your upcoming projects?

Solo Punk from Sledgehammer Pictures premieres at The Women In Horror Film Festival on 2/28/20 Bertie Cabash, Dog River, They Got Out, Consequences and Just One Day consumed most of 2019 and are in post. No telling what’s next.

Why do you think women in horror month is important?

Hey chicks can be scary too, I know of a few!

WIHM gives a group of people (THE LADIES) showcase where some would never know the talents exist. Women don’t get enough recognition for creating but the month of February is a good start!

Females can and do work as hard as any man with the unconditional love of a mother and the determination and strength of a warrior. Celebrating the woman you love and appreciating her ensures a longer, healthier and happier life. Cheers to the hard-working good bitches!

What are your Top 3 favorite horror movies of all time?

I love the Resident Evil and Blade series films but Poltergeist was my first and favorite.

I saw Piranha when I was in about third grade and lost my lunch seeing all the blood in the water. But because of that film I don’t swim in water that I can’t see through. Open Water too, my biggest fear is being eaten by a fish ha ha. Wrong Turn -just the gnarliest and I’ll stop now.

How Sledgehammer Pictures got it’s name.

Dreaming of film making started early for me. As a child I made my folks and their friends watch me turn my playroom into elaborate sets and act out scenes I had written in my head. Film was the subject I chose to study in college, where I made several student shorts. But soon after I graduated I found myself a married stay at home Mom of a two year boy and twin one year old girls. I spent their nap time writing screenplays and deepening the study of my craft. I found a weekend film retreat for women put on by the director Deborah Kampmeier. My husband and I were pinching serious pennies to get by at the time, so I reached out to her to ask if I could purchase one day of the retreat. She asked how much I had to pay. I told her what little I could come up with and she replied that the amount would be plenty for the whole weekend. I arrived to the event with such anxiety, I had not been out in the world as anything but a mother in quiet a while. Over the next few days I experienced every emotion one could feel, and heard Deborah’s story while sharing my own. She asked me why I didn’t direct anymore and my answer was children. She then shared with me how she fed her infant on set while directing Hound dog. Then she asked what else? I thought for a moment and told her that I had always felt a wall between myself and Hollywood, I just couldn’t seem to climb it no matter how hard I tried. The room became silent, looking me in the eyes she responded “You don’t need to climb it, get yourself a sledgehammer and knock that mother **** down!”. The whole room erupted in cheers. I went home a changed women and immediately got back on the film making horse. First I began picking up extra gigs and volunteering for The Atlanta Film Festival. This led to a job photo-doubling teenagers on The Walking Dead. I started helping out on independent films. Then I took the leap and made a horror short called Option # 3. This has lead to a journey of growth as a writer and director. So when it came time to name the production co I create under, I went back to that statement fueling the fire in my heart. It makes perfect sense that my production co be called Sledgehammer Pictures. Here I am knocking down all the walls, thanks to you Deborah! I am still a Mother and Wife, but now my family helps me to make my art. What a wild ride it’s been to here.
