“This is one of the most close adaptations of The Modern Prometheus that I have ever seen, and as a lover of literature I was glad to see it follow the book so closely. I really appreciated that the ‘monster’ was given his voice and was fully articulate the way that Shelley intended.”

“…I highly suggest it for classrooms and libraries that want a visual companion for the novel. It will likely keep younger viewers’ attention better than a recorded play thanks to it’s score and sweeping artistic landscape shots.”
We’ll be screening the abridged version of Frankenstein’s Monster (86 minutes). It is wonderful to screen in our hometown! Q & A after bpth screenings. Saturday will have a few words from filmmaker Judith B. Shields. Sunday the film will be introduced by the film’s technical director Christopher Lowe (designed special effects and steampunk laboratory) as well as our co-editor and documentarist Peter Kovic.

FOUR ConGlomeration screenings start at Louisville, Kentucky this Friday April 11th, 2014 and continue through Sunday. This will be one of the last few opportunities to see the extended edition of Frankenstein’s Monster (2013). This is also one of the few screenings we’ve had at the East Coast. We thank everyone at all the conventions and festivals who have screened our film.
Here is the official ConGlomeration convention schedule:
At SpaceCityCon in Moody Hotel and Convention Center in Galveston, Texas First Step Cinematics will be hosting two events. The first is a microbudget filmmaking panel in which we will also discuss some of the historical locations we shot at.The second event is a free for SpaceCityCon ticketed attendees: a screening of our film, Frankenstein’s Monster.
I want to give a big thank you to those who braved the cold and got your gears to Giddings! Weird West Fest welcomed Frankenstein’s Monster and we were proud to be there. Mike McDermott (Captain), Travis Wayne Hamilton (Krempe) and Judith B. Shields (me–the screenwriter/filmmaker) were able to meet many folks there. A big shout out for Mike and Travis for making it from Houston. Preacher’s Powderworks and Projectiles who made our amazing steampunk lab goggles is one of the co-founders for the event.
About Weird West Fest–it is a Western and Steampunk 1 day festival. This was their first year and they made a difficult decision–to postpone the festival by a week. The original date had that icy conditions and made it unsafe to drive in the Texas Hill Country. While the new date was still chilly, at least it was safe for folks to travel.
I also had a wonderful paneling experience. I’ve been on many panels, from ApolloCon (Screenwriting) to Comicpalooza (Microbudget Filmmaking) to WorldCon (Steampunk), but I never had had a panel where we laughed so much. I was honored to both moderate and participate in the Art of Screenwriting panel with (from left to right) @Gary Clark (actor and screenwriter), and Ed Erdelac (screenwriter and author). That panel covered comparisons of book to screenplay writing tips, character vs. action based plots, personal stories with screenwriting, and how to get your work out there. The audience asked good questions as well.
