Fango recently visited the set of the Canadian shocker SICK:
SURVIVE THE NIGHT, from director Ryan M. Andrews. Most of the 15-day shoot took
place in and around a house just outside Toronto, but our trip took place on
day three, where the outdoor action sequences were being lensed on a farm in
SICK: SURVIVE THE NIGHT stars Christina Aceto, Richard Roy
Sutton, Robert Nolan, Jennifer Polansky and Fango’s own Debbie Rochon (pictured

makeup trailer (thanks to artist Mela Bayraktar), I shot a few quick inserts. But I had one more interview to do with actor Robert
Nolan, still not looking quite myself!

DaCosta will take place after the screening. Click here for more details.
