Exactly where the hell have I been?
Mostly, I’ve been making a movie.
Now before you start oohing and ahhing, let me tell you this – it’s just a short. A fairly short short weighing in just around eight minutes. I figured since the technology is available to let the common man go out and make a movie, why not take advantage of it. As of this writing, it’s mostly in the can and we’re putting the finishing touches on it. I may share the story here one day soon.
But there’s been plenty of other stuff going on.
For instance, I went to the Fears For Queers 2 film festival this past weekend. It’s one of the four festivals put on by our friends at DOA Bloodbath and it was a pretty good time. An after-action report is coming soon as well as reviews of the features they presented. Also as we languish in the heat of the Texas summer and make the inexorable grind towards the fall, more tentacly goodness starts creeping out from the shadows – most of it provided by the H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society. Most recently, they’ve sent me a screener for a film they are distributing here: “Die Farbe”. It was filmed in Germany and directed by Huan Vu and is an adaptation of “The Colour Out of Space”. A review of this should also be coming soon. Looming largest for me, however, is the release of the HPLHS’ “The Whisperer in Darkness”. I cannot wait for that one.
In the meantime, I’ve sated my thirst for cosmic horror with his little nugget from some Italian filmmakers. io9 turned me onto it and I will in turn share it with you. Enjoy!
