THIS WEBSITE IS UNDER CONSTRUCTION
1. The original base of this image was a screenshot of a neuroscience lecture.
2. I used the image as my Facebook banner.
3. I took a photo of the Facebook header with iPod touch Horror Cam app
4. I added a few Horror Cam filters
5. I sent it over to Instagram where I changed the filters on top of the previous ones and there you have it!
I want to see how many more photo programs/apps I can run this same image through before I run out of options.
A few more:
I realize I never write on my website. In fact I tend to avoid it as much as possible but haven’t really acknowledged that until now. It intimates and confuses me. After much contemplation I decided the main factor is that when you have a website/blog you need to define it. And defining what I do in life and who I am has always been a pretty impossible task. Sometimes it feels like I have a double life. My professional day job and my deeply entrenched horror community world. Defining my place in both of those realms is difficult enough, let alone trying to meld them both into one concrete description/representation of me as a whole person. I don’t really have any solutions at this moment but I very much don’t want to waste this space. It feels to public to write Livejournal-esque posts but to impersonal to just post links to things I have done. Right now my goal is to just experiment with this site and try to find a way for it to be something a tiny bit more explainable.
Here are a couple quick things for now:
One of the goals for Women in Horror Month this year is to have a presence all year long. This is being accomplished first by the monthly by the new official WiHM Podcast. The show is co-hosted by myself and Ashlee Blackwell. We met via the Viscera Organization when Ashlee came on board as the WiHM Sponsorship and Administrative Director. She is an incredibly dedicated horror fan and academic. You can read some of her essays on her website Quirks and Splatters. Ashlee also held a fantastic event during February called Philly Loves Women in Horror. Hear here talk about it on the second episode of the WiHM Podcast! In that same episode, we had the honor of interviewing writer and producer of the Universal Pictures release Mama (2013) Barbara Muschietti about sibling creative partnership strategies, working with Neil Cross and Guillermo del Toro. You can Hear it now.
Many other exciting things are in the works for Women in Horror Month but I will return to the subject in future posts.
Today an interview I did with uber talented filmmaker, Katie Carmen, was published on Her Film Project which aims to “serve as a globally representative advocate for women filmmakers and their work.” I am so thrilled to have discovered the site and beyond honored to have been invited to be part of it. Thank you!
I will be back here more frequently working on the pages of this site and trying to make a post as close to every day as possible! Let’s see how that goes ;)
something i made.
