This year marks the 2nd annual Other Worlds Austin SciFi Film Festival, which runs December 3-5, 2015.   With the final set of deadlines approaching (September 30th for films, October 15th for screenplays), we want to encourage filmmakers and writers to take advantage of getting their material in to us before its too late. 

Other Worlds Austin is the one-and-only film festival in Austin, TX dedicated to Science Fiction Filmmaking.  With a team of programmers who love science fiction, write science fiction, or make science fiction films of their own, we are in this for one reason only, to put on a great festival.  We are looking for great stories that aren’t afraid to push the boundaries of the audience, thrilling them both visually and intellectually.  At our debut festival, we world premiered three features, gave three features their US premieres, programmed several Texas premieres, as well as three programs of shorts.  OWA is firmly committed to supporting exciting filmmakers, by giving them exhibition opportunities for films that are often overlooked on the film festival circuit. 
 
This year we’ve extended that mission to screenwriting as well.  From the birth of cinema, screenwriters have stretched our imaginations with stories from Other Worlds, taking us on a Trip to the Moon, following the adventures of Flash Gordon, or frightening us with The Day the Earth Stood Still.  On the page, anything is possible, and really, what's more 'future' than writing a screenplay for something you hope will get made someday? Even a short that you intend to shoot yourself is an unrealized opportunity in the writing stage.  As part of its ongoing mission to promote Science Fiction, Other Worlds Austin has announced its first SciFi Screenwriting Contest to reward creativity in its earliest stages and encourage writers to keep working in the genre.

dark world now t shirts available

Posted by Winston Blakely on July 9, 2018 at 6:57pm 0 Comments

         Hello, again. This time I am presenting a pair of gothic horror t shirt designs that I did

          for a client.

           Based on a comic book of the same name which I also did. (There is an updated version

          that I am working on for my amazon.com author page.) But for now let's just focus

          on the presentation below.

           I have seen the t shirts...they are good quality, you will not be disappointed.

                Enjoy

         

               Here's the link....

SKYCITY TALKRADIO

THE UNDERGROUND BY ROXANNE BLAND

Life as alpha of a werewolf pack is anything but predictable. But even Parker Berenson is surprised by the latest twist: he’s fallen in love with a space alien. Problem is, he suspects Melera, his sexy new flame, might be the serial killer terrorizing Seattle. Or maybe she isn’t. After all, just because she’s an interstellar assassin doesn’t mean she’s guilty.
