Keith Arem, who worked in the trenches on CoD games, will be directing a film named Frost Road, his first feature film.
He served in Activision as the talent director of games like Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare and Modern Warfare 2 and few other.
His forthcoming film Frost Road is a survival horror and is set in a small East Coast town.
He says, “Our main character is immune to what is happening while something is affecting the townspeople. They are essentially ripping themselves apart… It becomes a sort of a zombie film in reverse. Instead of this constant threat of being attacked by all these plagued victims, this becomes a story of survival and keeping these people alive.”
Arem has earlier also worked with video games such as Darksiders, Bioshock, Singularity, Guitar Hero 4 & 5, Army of two, Splinter Cell 4, Golden Axe and many more.
He started his career in video games in 1992. Before it he was a musician and specialized in electronic rock music. He had performed in Biohazard PCB and Contagion. He also use to sing and compose music. He developed his skills as an audio engineer.
