Aethereal – Episode 5 – “Sex, Magic, and Amnesia”

Hey hey!

A new episode of Aethereal is now online! Go watch and see my “Academy Award worthy” performance as Melody Singer!

Of course this episode is one of the best yet because I’m actually in front of the camera! Who wouldn’t want to see me on screen?

Annnnddddd…after watching this episode I’m sure you Internet folk will realize just how sarcastic I can be… 😉

Watch below or head on over to the Scruffy Tuxedo channel on YouTube!

Enjoy! =)

Monkey’s Paw Gives Girl Tonsillitis

Well, I’ve spent most of the past week in bed, sick as a dog, trying my best to fight against a very obnoxious tonsil infection. That’s right, I’ve got full blown tonsillitis.

Tonsillits - MRC Style

Yes, that is a picture of my infected tonsils…and I’m not going to get into how difficult it is to get a decently lit photo of your tonsils…

Needles to say…I feel great! And by great I do in fact mean that I feel like a giant, warm, stinking pile of shit!

So, since I feel like crap I’m going to keep this post short and sweet.

My buddy Chris Sprinkle finished work on his short film The Monkey’s Paw! It is a rather quirky silent film based on W.W. Jacobs short story. I play one of the main characters in the film, Sarah, who goes just a little nutty…

Watch and enjoy!

3 Day Film Challenge

October was Horror Film Fun Month!

I participated in the 3 Day Film Challenge – Horror Edition, sponsored by Emerging Artist Productions and the San Jose Short Film Festival.

The notion of the 3 Day Film Challenge is to create a short film in the time span of three days (that’s 72 whole hours!).

We, the local filmmakers who participated, worked in small teams to create epically awesome short films. We had no idea what sub-genre of horror (vampire, werewolf, mummy, clown, scary monster, etc.) we were working with until the first night of the comeptition. Team leaders chose a random sealed envelope that contained our ultimate film fate and once this information was obtained script writing ensued…then filming…editing…lack of sleep…food…special effects…more editing…death…all that good stuff associated with filmmaking!

What usually takes months and months, and many more months, to accomplish was completed in 3 days.

To say the least…it was INTENSE…but it was also FUN FUN FUN!

The finished films were then showcased at the San Jose Short Film Festival for the world to see! The audience voted on their favorite short, prizes were awarded, and the good times rolled on and on and on…

Witch’s Reign, the film I worked on with team Sonic Death Monkey (Elizabeth Hatcher, Tim Sudano, and Mark Sudano) won 2nd place! Yea, that’s how much our comedic-campy-horror flick rocked!

Unfortunatly, we do not have the film up on You Tube as we are contemplating cleaning it up a bit and submitting it to other film festivals! That’s right…Witch’s Reign could be coming to a theatre near you! 😉
