The Quirk and the Dead Moving Along Nicely!

Our Ken MacGregor-penned zombie comedy The Quirk and the Dead is chugging right along, and turning out nicely. So far, we've shot at a graveyard, in an abandoned store, and in an abandoned flea market. We even got chased off a location, which is a first for us (and as guerilla movie-makers, we are very proud)...

We are trying to raise a small budget for this movie via, which is an awesome web fundraising site, that allows people to check out projects and pledge money towards them. We are mostly tyring to raise enough moolah that we can afford to zombify a whole mess o' folks at the end of August, when we shoot the actual mass zombie footage (plus, we are gonna need A LOT of pizza!). If you are interested in investing (even $10.00 would be really helpful), you can check out our Kickstarter page by clicking here.

Here is the first teaser trailer, to whet your appetite:

Meriwether Done!

Well, firstly, it looks like I lied whan I said I'd be updating this blog more in 2010. Frankly, I don't understand how anyone can be serious about creative endeavors AND keep up with some kind of current blogging about it at the same time. Turns out I just don't have that kind of zeal. Sigh...

But, who cares? We have exciting news to share-- The Meriwether Device is finished and has been sent out to 10 festivals around the USA. We're keeping our collective fingers crossed, as it turned out better than we could have planned, thanks to the awesome Lionbelly squad of actor-folk and crewniks. Yahoo!

We will be debuting it in the fall as part of our annual pre-Halloween film extravaganza-- more details to follow. In the meantime, here is a MUCH better trailer for it, which captures the vibe of the thing more than the original teaser version did:
