Baroque, as ghosts and lost in time. These Dukes get cursed with a dime. A lovely dame and a scary chase. A haunt that shan't be lame!
:Baroque, As Ghosts:
I wrote a short story that I adapted for the screen called The Ghost of the Salvage Vanguard Theatre. My goal is to direct and produce an experimental, visually striking, horror/comedy film featuring Austin's own Salvage Vanguard Theater. Salvage Vanguard Theater continually presents transformative, avant-garde artistic experiences. The Ghost of the Salvage Vanguard Theatre draws inspiration from the progressive style of it's title character's home/setting. The story follows one of Austin's premiere improv troupes,The Dukes of Bedside Manor, as they embark on building a "haunted house" in a theater just days before Halloween. Instead, they encounter a old curse, ghosts, and Death itself! Joining the Dukes is a brilliant cast of Austin actors and improvisers!

Already assembled is an eager and very talented crew (Director of Photography, Producers, Sound Engineer, Gaffer, Make-up, Costume Designer, Artistic Advisor)! Our goal is to create a short film that embraces halloween in a human, surreal, and scary way; while capturing the ever-changing character and spirit of the theatrical venue.
With your help, we will be able to pay for the expenses: Location costs, lights, sound personnel, extras, costumes, props, post-production, and last but not least, the cast and crew will be fed!
Please help make this nightmare become a reality.
Ultimately, we will submit the finished product to film festivals around the world! But not before we have a ghastly masquerade party & screening for the film! You're invited!
