CHIPLEY — Halloween came to Chipley early this year.

Mayor Linda Cain presented the city council with a letter Thursday from a film company proposing Chipley as the possible location for filming a horror movie.

The letter is from her son, Brian Cain, who is executive creative director for GMD Studios in Winter Park.

“If you ever saw 'The Blair Witch Project' you know what kind of movies they have in mind,” the mayor said.

The film would be a combined project of Haxan Films and GMD Studios.

Brian Cain’s partnership with GMD began with the Fox TV show “Freakylinks,” where he portrayed the lead character of the TV show online for a full year prior to the series premiere, according to the website

More recently Brian Cain has been the creative director for projects that visualized everything from vampires ‘coming out’ to North Korea taking over the world. Creating these fictional worlds through transmedia storytelling and then letting an audience live in and explore them is what he enjoys the most about his work, according to the website.
