Project updates!

November 7, 2016 Uncategorized

VP poster 11x17It’s been a busy year! We completed and released our short film Santa Muerte which screened locally at a the Gen Con Film Festival in August. It can be watched online HERE.

We also filmed a re-make of our classic parody Vulassic Park featuring pre-historic picklesaurs and some of our original cast from 1993 & 1994. Be sure to check out the website at www.vulassicpark.com. We are also seeking additional crowd fund supporters so look under Picklestarter on the web site for more details. The film will be released in 2018.

Our next big film is a parody/tribute/love-letter to the films of Tim Burton called Burtonjuice! It is an ambitious project with a lot of art direction so filming won’t begin for another few years.

Soon we’ll be releasing a parody urban faerie field guide called Argyle Spide...

ADDITIONAL “SANTA MUERTE” SHORT FILM CROWDFUNDING

November 6, 2015 Uncategorized

In November 2014 we filmed a new dramatic short film SANTA MUERTE written by Michael Kouroubetes, co-directed by Kouroubetes and Tim Richardson, and starring Eddy Bibian as Miguel and Paisley Blackburn as Nina. It is a dream-like piece about love, life and death centered around the Mexican celebration of The Day of the Dead which is the day following Halloween, when those who have passed on are remembered.

The 7 minute film is going to premiere in early 2015 and we are completing post-production during this winter. We raised $500 to shoot the film and are looking for an additional $200 to go towards audio equipment for the final sound recordings and mix, as well as to help with festival entry fees if we receive over $200.
