Shadow Creek Studios located in Maple Grove Minnesota will be coming to this year’s Omaha Science Fiction and Fantasy Festival as our Featured Filmmakers. Christopher Mihm, head of the studio, along with members of the cast and crew are coming to talk about independent filmmaking and their movies.
They have recently completed Cave Women On Mars, their third film which is set in the future year of 1987. It will have its world premiere on April 12th of this year in Columbia Heights Minnesota at The Heights Theatre. On July 12th, they will screen first their earlier works: The Monster of Phantom Lake and It Came Form Another World before an evening showing of Cave Women. The studio's blurb is that these movies are "hilarious - and loving - tributes to 1950s B-grade horror flicks". I have talked to someone who has seen the first two and he argees with this assessment. Ah, the 1950's scifi genre, a time when science was invented, or at least stretched past the breaking point, to drive the story. A time when anything was possible and everyone had a great time escaping for a few hours.
So come and hang out with members of non-Hollywood, the filmmakers of Shadow Creek Studios. OSFest is July 11-13, 2008 at the Comfort Inn & Suites.
