March 2, 2018. Take a behind the scenes peek at Joel Paul Reisig’s production of “Son of the Wolf.” Based on Jack London’s novelette of the same name, this production can be called a “Best of Jack London” . Used predominately for Act III of this movie, “Son of the Wolf” is also incorporating scenes from “White Fang,”” The Abyssal Brute,”” Call of the Wild,” and draws inspiration from London’s short stories “The White Silence” and “the Moonface Man.”
Joel Paul Reisig is a producer and actor, known for Horse Camp (2016), A Parent’s Worst Nightmare (2017) and Altitude (2017). In total he has done over 20 movies which he has sold to Netflix, Red Box, and Walmart. His movies have been translated into multiple languages, and sold overseas. But he is much more than a movie director/producer. He is an adventure traveler and has a bunch of interesting things.
He has driven in a Labor Day demolition derby,; he has been on the back of a few bulls; he’s a Golden Glove boxer; and he went down to Florida to learn about alligators;. Reisig has traveled the longest kayak race in the world traveling 320 miles across the entire state of Missouri; he used to be a professional cowboy working as many as 16 hours a day in the saddle. Most recently he has become a dog musher racing in the Midnight Run in the dead of winter racing a team of eight dogs across 90 miles of frozen Michigan upper peninsual. In short he is the perfect guy to bring Jack London to the big screen.
“Jack London’s stories deserve to be seen. ” says Reisig.
