Sacramento Film Festival!
Sorry for the delay between updates — 'real life' has taken over (ugh!) and I am eager to return to the artistic life of 'TIL DEATH among other projects. I have also been waiting to see what kind of festival life this film may be developing... and as of next Friday, that life begins!
Some of you on Facebook may already know this: 'TIL DEATH has been accepted into the SACRAMENTO INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL! We are screening soon, on Friday, 4/27, at 7:30p as part of the 'Surreal Cinema' block of shorts (link below). If you are in the NorCal area, please stop by! Would love to see you, and share the 'Til Death experience as it is intended to be shared: in a theatre, with an audience. If you're not in the area, though, we hope to be playing in a festival near you over the course of this year.
Over the next few months, I will finally be delivering the packages promised on Kickstarter. They may come to you bit by bit, rather than as a single package, but yes, they will be coming. Thank you for your patience and continuing support.
Also, so you'll know, I have plans to include 'Til Death as part of a larger project. 'Til Death will be the first of three shorts in an anthology feature called 3 IN THE DARK, which will be a collection of bedtime stories for adults, featuring romantic zombies ('Til Death), corporate vampires, and a killer curse, among other ghoulish delights. :) This project is still being developed, but I hope to be able to move forward with it in the months to come. Stay tuned for more information.
In the meantime... Hope to see you in SacTown! Or a festival near you in the near future!
All the best,
