"I was filled with fear"

Prison Break star Wentworth Miller reveals that he tried to end his life "multiple times" before coming out as gay, which he announced last month. The reason for the failed attempts (thank God) at suicide was the struggle with his sexuality, which continues to this day.

Details below:
"
On his first attempt at suicide: The first time I tried to kill myself I was 15. I waited until my family went away for the family and I was alone in the house and I swallowed a bottle of pills. I don't remember what happened over the next couple of days but I'm pretty sure come Monday morning I was on the bus back to school pretending everything was fine.
Struggling to keep it together: Growing up I was a target. Speaking the right way, standing the right way, holding your wrist the right way. Every day was a test and there was a thousand ways to fail. A thousand ways to portray yourself to not live up to someone else's standards of what was accepted.
Coming out: I had multiple opportunities to speak my truth, which is that I was gay, but I chose not to. I was out privately to family and friends -- publicly, I was not. I chose to lie -- when I thought about the possibility of coming out, how that might impact me and the career I worked so hard for, I was filled with fear.

MassiveMusic partners with AMC Networks to curate playlist, promos and plinths for the annual horror film festival


MassiveMusic and AMC Networks have teamed up to bring FrightFest to life. The UK’s biggest and most popular horror film festival will take over Vue Shepherd’s Bush for its annual five day August Bank Holiday event this weekend.

For the first time ever, Horror Channel’s FrightFest has secured the entire West End cinema, with 12 screens showcasing 62 feature films across the weekend, including 19 world premieres and 35 UK and European premieres.

To ramp up the horror experience the monstrous collaborators have partnered to install a series of interactive installations and immersive experiences around the venue. With the whole cinema to play with, MassiveMusic have installed host of hyper directional speakers that are sure to give festivalgoers a real fright.

The project is part of an ongoing collaboration between MassiveMusic and AMC Networks, which started when the two companies got together for an installation at Comicon 2016. The project was a radical departure from what is expected of a traditional music company, with MassiveMusic helping enhance AMC’s Fear of the Walking Dead installation with the use of direction speakers.

Helen Bellringer, Producer at MassiveMusic, comments: “I’m a huge horror fan, so working on this project has been a blast. It’s great to work with a client that gets behind brave creative ideas. It’s not easy to pitch audio spotlight technology, and I’m so glad that we’re using it as it’s going to be really effective in the space, and terrifying for anyone unknowingly walking through the audio beam!”

Helen Glover, Creative Manager at AMC Networks, adds: “Massive Music delivered heart pumping, spine chilling sounds design that were exactly what we wanted. They totally got what the project needed and were outstanding to work with, bringing a fresh perspective and load of talent that took our Fright Fest campaign to the next level. I'd work with MassiveMusic again in a heartbeat! “
