Big news from an OWA team member! Dan Repp, our fearless Senior Programmer & Event Director, has co-written a short Horror film script with longtime OWA friend Lindsay Young, and the duo plans to direct the project this fall. Producing the film are Scott Honea and OWA Founder Bears Fonte. They’ve launched their Kickstarter page this week and could use our support! CUTTER is about a teenage cutter in recovery and her overbearing mother being haunted by a ghost who seeks to keep them at odds. Read more about it, and the fantastic crew of industry vets they’ve assembled, at https://www.cutterthefilm.com.
Other Worlds Austin is so excited to have one of its own heading up a genre film. We’re big fans of Horror stories that have something to say (it’s a big reason we launched Under Worlds Austin last year!), and Dan & Lindsay are working to create just that.
Look for CUTTER to be making the festival circuit in 2019!
