Horror Hodge Podge
Steve Romanko is a talented guy. A longtime sound wizard for Lucas and an ardent horror fan, Steve and partner Turner Van Ryn have a trailer for their new short "The Hell Patrol". This should be tense, gory and fun with great locations and a plethora of barbiturate dead (because true zombies are not fast).
You can follow "The Hell Patrol" through their myspace:
Speaking of talented people...Amanda Norman is a photographer who creates a wide array of macabre images. Her work runs from dark humor to creeping dread. If you are a fan of graveyard photography and ominous views of everyday places, definitely check out her site:
Iris Van Dongen is a Dutch artist who works quite a bit with charcoal, watercolor and pastels. Her work has a melancholy and moribund sensibility that really grabs me. You can check out more of her stuff at: http://artnews.org/irisvandongen/?s=1
