Lemme tell you something…

UDMPAwardsIn 2009 I worked as Production Designer and Art Director on the Science Fiction Horror Thriller webseries, UNIVERSAL DEAD. It starred Doug Jones, Gary Graham, and D.B. Sweeney.

It was written and produced by my bro and long-time Feo Amante’s Horror Thriller alumni, Kelly Parks, and released as a webseries in 2010, where it became an Internet hit.

Eventually, Kelly had it re-edited into a short film, and it began sweeping film festivals, finally winning the 2013 winning the LAWebfest, and competed in the Marseilles, France Worldfest (representing the U.S.), later that year.

Now UNIVERSAL DEAD is again nominated in a film festival, and the San Diego Film Awards have nominated me for Best Costume and Makeup.

You know, I’ve been so focused on helping UNIVERSAL DEAD  become a TV series or feature film, I never gave any thought to the idea of my winning an award.

Yet now that I know I’m nominated? I want to win!

If you’re in the San Diego area and plan to attend, IF  I should  win, my award will be accepted by Kelly Parks.

Exciting developments are happening with our Steam Punk Science Fiction series, “Spotlight On Crypto-History”.

We are starting to draw attention from some parties who have caught word of what we are doing.  Currently, we are associating with Michael Collins at Lolly Lane Studios in Lemon Grove, CA.

Jimmy Digg’s Spotlight on Crypto-History is a series of interviews with some of our past’s most dynamic figures, which soon becomes a critical mission to preserve the timeline they must create.

Who are the Crypto-Historians? They are temporal adventurers from different eras of earth’s past. We are to history what Indiana Jones is to Archeology.
