So just to keep everyone in the loop, I’ve been working on getting this Scars of Youth into some festivals along with getting ready for my neato self-released DVD, which FYI will be a very nice release from a geeky technical point of view, I.E.16:9 progessive encoding, 448 kbps 5.1 Dolby Digital audio, dual-layer with all the trimmings. Very soon, if I feel like it, it’ll go up for sale on the jrhfilms.com website.
The big project I’ve been working on for the past couple months is the newly-rebooted Nightmare Theatre creature feature show which is broadcast on the last saturday of the month on the local cable station WUWF from 10:00 PM to midnight CST. It’s basically the same old public domain movies but we’re definitely trying to infuse the show with a very edgy, psychotronic “Night Flight” vibe. It’s a show full of music videos, strange short subjects and tons of old drive-in and intermission promo material wrapped around movies like Horror Express or Bloody Pit of Horror. It’s a lot of work coming up with a two-hour show every month but I think it’s worth the effot. I encourage everyone to check out the streaming video version on the WUWF website and if there any horror-themed bands with music videos you want shown please send me an email.
Also, in March I’m going to be a guest at a convention down in the inaugural Imagicon which will be an interesting experience. I think it’s a little up in the air whether or not I’m showing Scars of Youth at the con. I remember the first time I showed Frankensteins Bloody Nightmare was at a sci-fi convention (Mobicon) where everyone left 20 minutes to their Magic cardgame or whatever and I spent the night watching the film myself. At least I managed to get really trashed and make Billy West do his “red” voice.
