Subscribers to Joseph Nanni’s Youtube channel Bad Advice For Good Times will see the new short film Black Goat weeks before it is released to the public. The film is currently in the final stages of post production and will be screened at a handful of festivals this fall. But anyone who hits “subscribe” between now and June 30 will not only be among the first to see the short but will also have access to exclusive character designs and a limited edition comic based the expanded story. Good times.

Last week we finished shooting the third HPL inspired short in our unholy trinity. A good time was has by all and the Necronomicon was refined and polished (the prop that is) Let’s call it a dry run for its feature film debut.
The short should be finished in a couple of weeks and then it’s off to the internets. And that’s it for our short films. But as the days get shorter the films get longer as we begin production on our first feature Drawing Baphomet.
Keep on Ftaghn,
The good people at the Lovecraft News Network interviewed me HERE! All I can say is of all the news networks out there, LNN is the most fair and balanced. What is the LNN, you ask? Well they are this:
What is the LNN?
- Do you have a preternatural interest in cephalopods?
- Do you ever lay awake at night dreaming of ways to introduce the word “cyclopean” into everyday speech?
- Have you ever looked up 47° 9′ 0″ S, 126° 43′ 0″ W on Google Maps?
- Do you know what the Cup of the Ptolemies was carven out of?
- Do you know that the most merciful thing in the world is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents?
Throw your horns in the air, wave ’em around like you just don’t care. Elder Sign has been offically selected to screen during Dragon*Con in the dirty ATLA between September 4 and 7. If you’re down on a hardcore genre tip or like to trick out your moma’s wig for some cosplay then this con better be in yo’ PDA.
Fantasia is the name of a lot of things. It is also the name of North America’s premire genre festival – their website says so. And we are very excited to announce that Elder Sign will be having its North American big screen premire at this year’s show. The work that shows at Fantasia is the very kind of stuff that inspires us to make shorts like Elder Sign, and plus I was born in Montreal. We’ll get back to you with the dates.
If you find yourself in Uruguay from May 15 to 22 the check out Montevideo Fantastico. The Festival is the only event in Uruguay specialized in horror, sci-fi, fantastic and bizarre films. Its objective is to divulge once a year independent and generally low budget productions that are frequently considered as part of a “minor genre” and who almost never have accesss to commercial and even cultural circuits. And Casting Call of Cthulhu will be there. We still got it.
