Did you know that our fearless leader–Keith Paul–is a puppeteer?
It’s true! He’s partnered with those crazy kids over at Elmwood Productions for a few projects now, including his role in the highly-anticipated, all-puppet horror flick HEAD!
HEAD is a one-of-a-kind film starring an all puppet cast in a throwback to the slasher films of the 1970’s and 1980’s. A group of twenty somethings go for a nice fall weekend camping trip and end up in the middle of nightmare they may never escape from…
And now? HEAD is going on the road!!!
That’s right–HEAD will be a part of **3** film festivals, getting out in front of more eyes, and (hopefully!) winning some well-deserved accolades!
- On September 18, 2015, HEAD is screening as part of the late nite screenings at the Lake Erie Arts and Film Festival in Sandusky, Ohio! – you can find the full festival schedule here: http://lakeeriefilm.org/2015festival.html
- Come out for a special screening of HEAD in Belfast, Ireland on October 24, 2015–just in time for Halloween! Check out the website for The Yellow Fever Indie Film Fest at Movie House Cinemas for all the details! http://theyfiff.wix.com/theyfiff
- Fall festival season continues!!! HEAD will be screening on HALLOWEEN at the FANtastic Horror Film Festival in San Diego, California, at Reading Cinemas Gaslamp on October 31, 2015! And it’s been nominated for “BEST SPECIAL EFFECTS” in a feature film!
AND HEAD was just added to the Puerto Rico Horror Film Fest in San Juan, Puerto Rico, October 20-26, 2015! This is a biggie–Puerto Rico Horror Film Festival has been named one of the Top 13 Horror Film Festivals to Die For by Movie Maker Magazine!
Looks like HEAD is taking over the world!! You’ll want to be there to see history in the making!!
Our fearless leader, Keith Paul, lover of puppets, and his new teammates over at Elmwood Productions bring more film to Paris In Plantsville as they continue their screening spree this summer with a short film double-feature!
August 21 and 22, they’ll be screening the thriller, The Hollow Waltz, from Euphio Films, and the comedy, The Risley Brothers, from Elmwood Productions.
Look for more film events to be announced!
The doors open at 7PM for both screenings, with the films starting at 8PM–$5.00 at the door for admission. Following the screenings, the filmmakers and cast members will be on hand for Q&A sessions.
THE HOLLOW WALTZ: Written and Directed by S.W. Rand
In a city filled with corruption and greed, a sorted array of characters lead this tale through a corrupt New England city. Everyone is trying to survive another few days, despite their dwindling luck. Revenge, backstabbing, and riches make for a good time in Frog Hollow. Rated R for language and violent behavior. www.euphiofilms.com
THE RISLEY BROTHERS: WELCOME TO THE WOODEN BEAVER: Written and Directed by Jon Bristol
Wes and Quig have just re-opened their grandfather’s bar. With low expectations for success, and discovering that the old regulars have all passed away, they aren’t sure if they will make this first month’s electric bill. But they have bigger problems to deal with: the women in their lives… Rated PG-13 for language and brief sexual discussions. www.elmwoodproductions.com
Total run-time for both films is approximately 90 minutes.
We look forward to seeing everyone!
