Another Small Update

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 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 this sci-fi convention 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.
