Wesley Cavins (born March 3, 1981) is an emerging American filmmaker; Writer, Director, & Producer at Searing Cinema.
At the age of 12, Wes was enrolled in the summer computer science program at the University of Evansville in Indiana. That fall, he was enrolled in the fine arts program at Berry College in Mt Berry, GA.
Wes began directing, producing, and editing feature films from his own screenplays at the age of 17, including the feature films SHARP OBJECTS and SUBURBAN DECAY, along with creating the marketing artwork for the films.
In 2004 he completed the feature film BEHIND YOU in which he combined make-up effects with visual effects for seamless special effects, by the age of 23, under the production company name of Fierce Filmworks.
While studying film production at Jacksonville State University and, later, working in Los Angeles at Explore Talent, Wes spent the better part of his 20’s writing and developing IP's for his film production company; independent as well as major feature film productions.
In 2009, Wes rebuilt his production company as Searing Cinema, an independent film production company focusing on the development, financing, production and sales of original feature films for an international audience.
The company supports green technology by utilizing its online production system for every phase of the film production process.
Searing Cinema is actively developing four feature films currently slated for production: INFERNAL in Mississippi, GHASTLY as well as VIOLENT ACTS in Minnesota, and THE JUNKYARD in Tennessee & Georgia.
In his spare time, Wes is adapting additional IP's, that were shelved in various stages of feature film development, into books that will be available along with companion scores for an enhanced reading experience.
