After unsuccessful attempts to revive our ailing economy, the US is forced to cut funding to rural, low-population areas of the nation leaving millions to fend for themselves. Amid ongoing territorial disputes, Nicholas Grim is forced to witness the brutal murder of his parents by Armed Militant Forces in Texas. Now an adult, Grim vows to avenge his family and uncover their killers motives. The stock market hits an all time low, unemployment rises, the value of the dollar decreases and the cost of living goes up: Millions of people in New York City, Los Angeles, Washington D.C. and other large cities pick up cardboard and sharpie pens to state the obvious: "We don't like this"... It's got to be a "Texas" thing: You tell a man you're cutting the electricity off, he opens the blinds... you tell him you're cutting the water off, he starts digging a hole. "If the end of the world happened, Texas would still look the same".

Project Black Studios presents "Tentacles in a Twisted Deathdream". Met up with a gentleman named Stephen Romano at Fear Fest 2 in Dallas who was there promoting his new book, "Shock Festival". He gave a passionate speech about wanting some live-action components to compliment the hard cover illustrated novel. Yes: You ARE supposed to see the "effects", and yes: You ARE supposed to see the microphone hanging down in plain view. These are quite intentional, and many films of the era featured similar "goofs".

Garrett Wilkerson's first major entry into filmmaking: Written, Directed and Edited by the man himself. As nonsensical and random as they come... a student project for his semester final that he ended up getting a flat zero on because he was too busy doing hot chicks three at a time to turn it in on the due date.

Extra material and deleted scenes from Andolini's Office, 2006. Includes extended takes, scenes that "didn't work", and scenes that, regrettably, had to be trimmed to meet FOX's "5 minute flat" rule. Featuring the excellent work of Dennis O'Neill, Hank Sinatra, and Miss Elsbeth Willhite: All talented people whose parts were cut short. Your work was not forgotten! And I've always had these clips available online for the world to see your full involvement in this highly rated short.

A classic b-grade science fiction film made for FOX's On The Lot: I remember this month fondly, as three different minds collaborated on three different projects and put them all out in a month. Written/Directed by Daniel Rosales. Shot with a Sony VX2000 Camera with newly discovered audio recording issues... a problem that would persist into Andolini's Office: My official entry into FOX's On The Lot. Fun Fact: The "destroyed building" at the beginning of the short film was, years later, bought out by FOX and converted to a set for Prison Break, Season 3 (which Adrian Santiago played a prisoner in). After the season's shooting wraps, the area will be demolished... so, we were one of the last "free" people to go in and record at this location.
