denisemarkbendeviI’ve been coming to Shriekfest for years.  Run by Denise Gossett, who is very possibly the sweetest woman to ever roam the earth, this has long been one of my fave fests.

Though once again, it’s Death in Charge that’s playing this one, we’re spending more time promoting trippin’ and off to a great start.  Read the rest of this entry »

Just Back from Big Bear Film Fest…

September 20th, 2009 by Devi Snively (The Directrix)

…where Death in Charge just screened.

Too fun!  What a funky town.  Kenny and I road-tripped up.  Altitude and alcohol are a fun combo.  Our screening was well attended, the parties were great, we met some cool folks and ran into a bunch of old fest friends.  But in all honesty I think I had the most fun playing hooky.  Kenny and I kept a nice buzz going from about 11am on all three days and got deep into brainstorming ideas for my latest script.Kenny's Big Bear

We checked out the coolest outdoor antique shop and got a can in which to place our movie which I’m due to pick up on Monday.A Can for our film We also got a board game from which we will steam off the current cover, so we can use it to build the proto-type for our trippin’ board game.  Yes, there will be a trippin’ board game.  How could there not be?

Return to Dragon*Con!

dragoncon_logoWow, so they say you never forget your first and I gotta agree.  Dragon*Con was my first convention 6 years ago and in some ways my first festival experience as a “serious” director.  Okay, maybe serious isn’t exactly the word, but when I kicked off the fest tour for Teenage Bikini Vampire, it was with a new understanding that this was no longer just to be a “hobby.” It was a life-force.  I’d found my calling as a musical romantic horror comedy writer-directrix and there was no turning back

Anyway, if you want all the lurid details, I wrote about that magical first experience HERE.

I’ve been to several Dragon*Con’s since that fairy tale weekend and all have been wonderful, but perhaps this year was the best of all.  It felt like coming home after several years away. Read the rest of this entry »
