Spooky Spooky Scary Scary – 2009

Produced by Joking Envelope & Moontalk Productions

Writer/Producers – Joseph Scrimshaw and Tim Uren

Spooky Spooky Scary Scary is the story of Chuck and Dexter; two best-friends, roommates and huge fans of horror author H.P. Lovecraft. After a visionary dream, likely brought on by yet another long night of stargazing and cheap beer, the duo form the world’s worst cult ever.  Armed only with the power of the internet, they vow to spread the bad word that CTHULHU IS REAL!! And Cthulhu wants you.

Spooky Spooky Scary Scary screened a rough cut of Episodes 1-3 in 2009 at the local science fiction convention, CONvergence, in the resident film room, Cinema Rex, and was part of the 2009 H.P.Lovecraft Film Festival.  The final cut of all 4 episodes was screened at the 2010 CONvergence in Cinema Rex.  DVDs are available for purchase here.

A brutally sharp tale of obsession, fantasy and the comic horror of reality!  The very definition of a cult classic.

Thaco – 2008

Writer/Producer – Bill Stiteler

THACO is quite literally a basement comedy, and the story of four nerds in their 30s – adults, but not grown up – who never quite get around to the dungeon adventure on game night. Jon (the rules lawyer) and Duck (the hardcore gamer) harass Bill, their DM, while waiting for the perpetually late Aaron to show up. They go over the games that have affected, infected, and generally warped their minds since they were first released to their local stores – and they wouldn’t have it any other way.

 

In 2005, Thaco first premiered as a stageplay at the Minnesota Fringe Festival. Fall of 2007, Amanda heard that Bill was remounting his stage production for the 10th Anniversary CONvergence and that he was considering turning it into a movie, as well. She asked if he’d like a tech crew for filming, and Moontalk officially became a glimmer in its mother’s eye. The film was screened in Cinema Rex in 2008 and 2009. It was also screened at PAX, Origins Game Fair, Penguicon, and Wrath of Con. DVDs are available for sale at Amazon and available to rent and purchase via video on demand.

Thaco pays comedic homage to Dave Arneson and Gary Gygax.  Love and thanks, from your old-school fans.
