Based on actual court hearings, Baggage Claim is the perspective bending story of Winnie Ruth Judd, widely known as the Trunk Murderess. The facts, Ms. Judd arrived on a overnight express train from Arizona with 2 large suitcases. What was inside those cases were unimaginably horrific. Now we hear the opposing attorney’s version of the story as well as Ms. Judd’s final chance to clear her name. Is she a femme fetale or a victim of circumstance?

the next big things
Man, that NIGHT OF THE ROCK event last month was so fun. Everybody who came up from L.A. to perform and/or party with us ruled the streets of Oakland. We totally packed both venues. If you’re interested you can download for free my band, the STEGANOTHING’s full live album, At The Night Of The Rock ,off bandcamp.
I’ve been working pretty hard on me and Sonny Smith’s collaborative music video for his band’s upcoming album. it’s really cool, I’m stoked on it. I wanted to try something different with it, and it’s paying off. I doubt there’s many musicians willing to get as hands on as Sonny has been for this one. you’ll see…
As far as the future, I’ve become planning the next big event. It involves my friends at RPS GALLERY again but also THE NEW PARKWAY, my favorite movie theater in Oakland. I guess you’ll hear more about it as it comes closer. But just think first weekend in October for some truly epicness. I’m trying to get as many of my art making friends involved as possible. It will be a place for new art as well premiere of our next film, DEADLY GARDEN. If you haven’t seen the teaser trailer yet, you can see it above. Just click the Coming Attractions poster. It’s going to be our best film yet, I’m sure.
STORK CLUB, March 30th
My band, STEGANOTHINGS is playing at the Stork Club Satuday March 30th, along with a bunch our friends. Some of them coming up from LA. I’m excited as hell for this night. We’ve been practicing alot. If you’re curious at all, we uploaded our demo. http://thesteganothings.bandcamp.com/ But I’m hoping we’ll get a punchier sound if the Stork Club records the set.
Speaking of music, I’ve been getting started working on a new project for Sonny & the Sunsets. I’m super pumped and I’m ready to take on the challenge of making a more epic video than Planet of the Women, tho it’d be hard to not still love it. It was the first animation story I tried to tell, and I’ve been hooked since. SO I’m excited to get back to familiar but new territories.
ok! Hope to see you at Stork Club!
L.A. Zinefest bound'
Heading down to L.A. this weekend for L.A. Zine Fest with Deth P. Sun and Brendan Monroe. Come visit us at our table!
I put together a brand new zine for it compiled of my Missed Connections illustrations. I added it to the gift shop, including brand new MURDER DOLLHOUSE Film Cards and Love Note cards.
For more information about L.A. Zinefest click on the link.
See you there, and then see you back up here for SF INDIE FEST for the festival premiere of Baggage Claim. I’ll be at the Tuesday Night screening, along with some of the cast and plenty of friends. Rad.
Zine Library Commerical
I added the commercial I made for RPS Zine Library to our carrousel. It’s really funny I think, I had some vocal help from my pal Marci Washington and music help from postcoitus (Derek Wood). I can get a lot more goofy on stuff like this, while working on my seriously toned projects. Well, there’s always comedy, even the biggest tragedies has a funny side. But anyway, I had a lot of fun with the commercial. Don’t do baby drugs!
