REPO! THE GENETIC OPERA
DARREN LYNN BOUSMAN grew up in Kansas, where he became heavily involved in the theater community. He attended Kansas University where he majored in theater and film. During his sophomore year, he left KU to attend a film school in Orlando, FL. It was in Florida that Darren began writing and directing short horror films. Shortly after moving to Los Angeles, Darren began directing music videos and commercials for such Utopian Pictures artists as Velma Fix, and Tamela. In early 2003, Darren became a freelance director for The Firm, a Beverly Hills-based management company. While working with The Firm, he has directed various music videos and commercial spots, including the StaticX hit "Soā€¯ which made its premier on MTV and FUSE. That same year, Bousman directed the first theatrical stage production of REPO at the John Raitt Theater in Hollywood to sold-out crowds. In 2004, Darren helmed the commercial campaign for Virgin Cola where he directed five separate national spots. Darren was introduced to the Twisted Pictures producers Gregg Hoffman, Mark Burg, and Oren Koules after penning the script THE DESPERATE, which sparked the seed that Leigh Whannell and Bousman would later turn into 2005's smash hit SAW II. Upon completing principle photography for SAW II, Darren went on to direct the music video "Forget to Remember" for Mudvayne, but returned to helm SAW III in 2006 and SAW IV the following year, both of which went on to, as did SAW II, open at Number One at the American box office.
