Our second year sponsoring Wichita Big Screen's HorrorFest! This year was special because aside from screening classics such as Hellraiser and Evil Dead 2, this year also featured a rare showing of George A Romero's Dawn of the Dead in 3-D! The Old Town Warren was the second theater in the word to book this version of the film. Additionally, we were brought in to shoot interviews and promotional video for the film on the night of the screening.
As with previous years, the festival serves as a fundraiser for LAPP (a local animal shelter). You can find out more about them HERE.
DARK TRACES is the sophmore film by Stacked Deck Studios in Kansas City. We saw their debut short, MORBUS OPUS, at Doc Sunback in 2018 and were very impressed. We also got a chance to meet Ben Schatzel, writer and star of this film at the event. When we were later contacted about the fundraiser to complete the film, we were happy to contribute.
The Donut Whole is a beloved donut and coffee shop in Wichita and over-all, a very cool place. It's actually one of the first places I (Tyler) visited when I first moved here and we manage to drag anyone we can there to experience it with us. In early 2018, The Donut Whole needed some help. Street construction had thrown off business for several months and the place was in danger. The owners created a GoFundMe campaign and the people of Wichita made it happen. We are proud supporters of this campaign and we are happy that the new owners have made good on all the promises left behind and are continuing the legacy of this great place.
