The Dead Inside scorched through Alaska taking top prize at the Anchorage Film Festival. The Golden Oosik. What is a Oosik? I’m glad you asked. It’s a Walrus Penis bone. Yup. Apparently they are found along the coast and are very rare. So here I hold in my hands a rare walrus shaft. The perfect way to end our year of festivals! Anchorage was an incredible fest with incredible people. The Dead Inside is honored to accept this award. As I have said at many of the fests in which …

The Dead Inside continues to pick up awards as it travels around the globe delightfully spooking audiences. TDI recently rocked the Killer Film Festival in Boston and was honored with both best score and best sound design. It’s great to see the work of David Bewely, Michael Brake, Brian Rice and Joel Van Vliet noticed. They had the challenge of making our weird little tale sound amazing both musically and design-wise and they knocked it out of the park. Thanks to Michael Vallier and the Killer crew for programming us …

Or at least so says this reviewer from Film Radar. We haven’t had many reviews for The Dead Inside yet (since it’s not available to the public) so when we come across people who thought this much of the movie we are tickled with bloody joy. Check out the review of the movie HERE! I work very hard at my art and I love what I do. It’s amazing to hear that someone thinks your work is important. All I can do is be true to myself and hope people are …

The Dead Inside continued to collect the trophies last Sunday night when it picked up best Supernatural Feature Film at the 11th annual Shriekfest Awards. This is the second win at Shriekfest for the Drexel Box crew, picking up the Audience Choice Award two years ago with the demon love story, LO. Thank you to all the judges and especially Denise Gossett for putting on such a kick ass horror festival. We were honored to screen and to meet all the great filmmakers that were a part of a the …

Last week Shannon and I hopped in the car and drove over to Arizona for the 11th annual Phoenix Film Festival. The Dead Inside was screening for three exciting days in the Harkins multiplex. The moment we showed up (late for the opening night gala) the programmers were thrusting their palms against ours and singing praises about our flick. A friendly bunch who are operating a festival out of the pure love of movies, so it was an honor to be selected for their fest. We learned that our film …

Film festivals are a blast, but nothing beats screening your movie in your home town. You have the luxury of knowing enough people locally to pack the house! So I am proud to announce that The Dead Inside will be making its Los Angeles premiere at the Los Angeles United Film Festival. We’ll be rocking this flick hard at the Los Feliz 3 Cinema on Wednesday, May 4th at 9:30pm. The Dead Inside is the closing night film of the fest…so that’s pretty cool. So listen up Los Angelenos, If …

The question on everyone’s minds these days: can ghosts get wet? Well you will now have the opportunity to find out when you come see THE DEAD INSIDE at the Lake Arrowhead Film Festival in California! Yes kids, our supernatural musical with zombies is rocking this country. It’s great to see people truly interested in original feature filmmaking in a world of studio saturated blandness. The crew at LAFF has given us a choice screening slot, so if you are in the area, come out and see our film on …

Two super cool things to do in life:
1. Make a movie and screen it for an audience.
2. Make a movie and screen it for an audience in Hawaii!
Ladies and gents, I am proud to announce that The Dead Inside has been accepted into another festival and that festival is the Big Island Film Festival. I was ecstatic to hear that another group of film lovers wanted to show our movie, but I was head-over-heels to discover I would get to finally go to Hawaii because of it.
The festival runs May 11th …

The Dead Inside is no longer a virgin. She lost it on stage, March 5th, 2011 in Durango, Colorado, and most appropriately so. The woman working the snack bar/liquor bar informed me that it was the very stage they put up all of their stage musicals, which is why they wanted to show TDI there. I liked that…and still do.
I heard it from many that weekend. “You know, I don’t even like musicals, but that was awesome.” Seems people are initially wary when they plop their butts down for our film, …

I may have finally found my audience. Turns out that dead people have an interest in my films. While looking over our movies website traffic, Shannon pin-pointed a specific visitor. Somebody (or something) was checking out www.thedeadinside.com from the Rosedale Cemetery. I’m dead serious. Take a look at the map here and you will see what I mean. The dead inside are interested in The Dead Inside! This opens up an entire new market for the film! I am honored that people who have long shuffled off this mortal coil …

It’s been well over a month and a half since we wrapped production on the ghost possession musical EVERYONE (no one at the moment) is talking about! The Dead Inside cameras may have stopped rolling, but the movie continues to consume my life. Being the editor of the film, I am now offered the opportunity to write my story all over again, because that’s pretty much what happens. You write it in screenplay form and  you love it. You shoot it, it evolves and changes on set and love it. …

Darkness. There is noise, but not surrounding me. It seems to be coming from inside me, as if my brain was flicking around in a hundred different directions. It’s insufferable. My numb hands lift up off the imitation silk to touch my face, but instead they hit the ceiling. Feels like wood, but then my hands are numb so it’s hard to say. One thing is certain, the space I am in is tight. I guide my hands to my face and my cold fingers touch my eyes. They are …
