Look Ma, I’m on TV!

I made TV news in San Diego, thanks to KPBS Film and Art Critic Beth Accomando! We chatted about my film Things We Dig, my visual art, Halloween, and our common love for horror and being ghoul geeks!

You can read the awesome online write-up here:

San Diego Filmmakers Gets World Premiere At Screamfest LA

Or check out the aired segment itself:

Full disclosure – Beth was instrumental in helping me get props for the film AND she made a quick cameo:

This is making my favorite season (Halloween season) even better, thank you Beth!

Stay healthy, stay yummy, everybody!

And so it starts…

Things we Dig will have its World Premiere at Screamfest Los Angeles!

I am thrilled to the gills that ‘Things We Dig‘ is an official selection of Screamfest L.A. yeah baby!!!

Where:
Regency Theatres THE PLANT DRIVE-IN in Van Nuys.
When:
Tuesday, October 13th at 9pm. Gates open at 8.30pm.

Get your tix for:
A Ghost Waits North American Premiere + Ghoulish Horror Shorts” in the link provided below. ‘Things We Dig’ will be shown in a short film block following the feature film, so it’s a long night on a school night…I know! BUT due to Covid19, it’ll most likely be the only Southern California live/in-person-ish event for our horror comedy this year!

All COVID guidelines and mask wearing are required.
The drive-in will project from DCP. Regular theatre concessions are available inside the Regency lobby. Get details about car loads etc in the “buy ticket” link:

Join us at the screening and get your tix here!

So proud of my rad cast and crew and all the fangtastic work that went into making this short film!

‘Things We Dig’ is a horror comedy about four female vampires trying to make an extra buck. Of course they have a plan…but will it work?
Starring Jenn Larson, Cat Forrest , Morgan Marlow, Marc Biagi, Stephanie Scurry, Patrick Russell Burton, Deepti Kingra-Mickelsen and myself. Written and directed by yours truly!


Stay tuned for more film festival announcements, including the Screamfest New Orleans edition AND a Canadian Premiere SOON!

Stay healthy,

and yummy…

Things we tease!

Hiiiii guys!!! Hope you’re still with us in these crazy times! Ready for some fun news for a change?

First official film festival selections have been made, yayyy! I will be making festival announcements – yes, ‘s’ as in plural (!!!), for ‘Things We Dig‘ here soon, once I get the screening info and pertinent details. It’s finally time! I’m starting Halloween season off early, I don’t care if it’s still over 100 degrees outside. Damn this summer to hell!

While we wait for the film festival details, I thought I’d share some of the fun ‘Clips from the Crypt’ teasers we have made for you, edited by Peter Stoll of San Diego Digital Imagery.

Way back in March, before the plaque, we had a little private screening for the cast and crew, and we made them talk about ‘Things We Dig’ a little. Yes, there was a little booze. ;)

Without further ado, check out the first round:

Marc Biagi as Miles
Cat Forrest as Helgie
Patrick Russel Burton as Scott
Jenn Larson as Lucretia
Yours truly as Kuni von Stechen and director
