Frankenstein’s Monster may be showing at a Steampunk Convention near you!
First off, thank you everyone who supported us for Shockerfest! We are amazed by your kind words and support. If you haven’t voted for us for Sci-Fi Feature yet, please do so here.
Here are the upcoming screenings this weekend at JackoCon (Albuquerque, NEW MEXICO), OctopodiCon (Norman, OKLAHOMA), TeslaCon (Madison, WISCONSIN) , and Emerald City Steampunk Expo (Wichita, KANSAS).
First off, we’d like to sincerely thank those who supported us with the Indie Go-Go campaign for the Spring 2013 Competitions. We are touched by your generosity.
We have great news! We’re an official selection for the WorldCon–71st Anniversary (LoneStarCon3) Film Festival!
PLEASE NOTE: While the general Science Fiction convention will be located at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center, the FILM FESTIVAL will be located at the nearby Marriott Rivercenter. Our film will be shown once on Friday, August 30th at 8:00pm-10:00pm in Room 13-14. We hope to see you there! Please share with your Texan friends!
It’s time! After a long wait we’ve finished post-production [thank you guys] and we’re now entering the independent film circuit. Below is our very first trailer.
To also help continue our momentum on the circuit, we’ve launched a crowd-funding campaign through indie go-go. These funds will be used to help us during the Spring circuit. We appreciate everyone’s support and we look forwards to representing a piece of Houston’s independent film scene around the world.

We loved Comicpalooza! The staff was awesome and we had a great time at our forum, “How to Film on a Budget”. The audience asked good questions and we enjoyed speaking with everyone and sharing our experience what it was like to make a microbudget film and little tips and tricks for others to use. Christopher Lowe brought Matt Risoldi’s DYI microphone blimp and we talked tech about the DSLRs. If we have another DYI panel, I’ll make sure we include more about camera tracks and dollies.
The Comicpalooza booth did well. We were next to the Reverent Rangers, who are the founders of the Wierd West Fest where we’ll have a screening in December. Professor Elemental was to our right and the picture below is him flipping the switch of an actual piece from Victor Frankenstein’s laboratory. Splendid!
Our e-mail list serve bloomed to over 220 new members and we’re still growing. We loved speaking to Houstonians about our local project and explaining the upcoming independent film circuit.
Right now the post-production team is putting the finishing touches on the final draft of the film. If all goes well, it’ll be shipped out next week for competitions that begin in October. We’ll keep everyone informed. Our first trailers also should be finished sometime next week.
We’re having a screening at ApolloCon at 4:00pm on June 22nd, 2013. We are looking forwards to it. I can’t wait to show how we brought back the old and made it something new.–Judith

Thank you guys again. This interview is with Judith B. Shields and gives some small insight to being a producer.
I’ve cut at least 13 scenes in the last 10 days. Basically my brain is the consistency of V8 now, and I live in constant dread that the tops of people’s heads are going to drift out-of-frame.
