House of Monsters Invades El Rey Network!
Hi Monster friends!
Just when you thought you'd heard the last from us, we're back with a heaping shovelful of monster scoop.
Our last update was a year ago, when we moved to YouTube. Things have changed again. Our "Frank and The Zombie Girl" short was picked up by El Rey Network for "The People's Network Showcase: Animation Edition!
From the official press release:
El Rey Network’s “The People's Network Showcase” returns with the “Animation Edition,” 15 films released both on-air and digitally on El Rey Network’s YouTube page. The on-air special features 2 hours of 13 hand-picked short films and exclusive interviews with stand-out rising independent filmmakers from around the world. “The People’s Network Showcase: Animation Edition,” hosted by acclaimed animated film director Jorge Gutierrez (The Book of Life), will debut on Sunday, September 24th, 2017 at 8pm ET on El Rey Network.
El Rey Network founder and maverick filmmaker Robert Rodriguez had a vision to create a place where all creators’ work could be seen and celebrated on broadcast television. The People’s Network Showcase is this place. Filmmakers can submit their films to El Rey Network’s People’s Network here: https://submit.elreynetwork.com/
I remember submitting both shorts to El Rey the same day we released them to you guys, July 28th, 2015. Two years go by, I totally forgot about it. Then I suddenly get an email, Congratulations, Robert Rodriguez likes House of Monsters and wants to put it on the air. I fell out of my chair.
I went into the El Rey studio to film my interview, where I share crazy anecdotes about how we made the shorts and dispense invaluable filmmaking tidbits. Ha!
After the show runs its course on TV, our short will move over to the El Rey YouTube Channel October 27th. Just in time for Halloween! It will live there the next year or so.
No matter where these shorts may live, you can always find them on our website, www.houseofmonstersmovie.com and we will have the most current links to wherever the videos are.
I don't know what's next for us, but I am still hopeful this will lead to new opportunities. Thank you all for your continued support. Let's keep in touch. Cheers.
SEE YOU SUNDAY 9/24 8PM!
