Her production company might be Stupid Idea Films, but there is nothing as smart as a cool and creative woman and that definitely defines Dallas based filmmaker Tiffany Warren. A gay, horror loving auteur, Warren’s recent shorts Kill Me Under the Mistletoe and Run are currently on the festival circuit and hitting various conventions and horror events.
Warren also recently participated in the Women of Independent Horror panel at the Atlanta Days of the Dead convention, proving that she is truly a talent to look out for.
Many are the mornings that I wake up in my bed and can’t remember what day it is…or the time…or who that is beside me. Well, that last statement isn’t true. No stranger is ever there beside me. And as tragic as that may be, the fate of Colleen Elizabeth Miller’s military type character in One-Armed Rabbitis much worse.
In this fun short, developed and enacted by Miller, a young woman wakes up in the desert with no memory of how she got there or where the plane that was carrying her disappeared to. Thankfully, she’s got survival skills. Although, they not be as helpful as she hopes. There is a pesky critter wandering that sandy wilderness with her and it may just prove to be her doom.
Utilizing Miller’s comedic strengths and puppetry skills, One-Armed Rabbit is ultimately an energetic romp into survivalist horror and, nicely, displays the virtues of a performer taking matters into her own hands and creating a fine vehicle for herself.
Meanwhile, animal activists everywhere are sure to approve of the film’s fun twist, as well.
Oh, I have tried to be cool. A lot. Sometimes, I succeed. Other times…
But some folks are just naturally cool. Take the amazing Fies sister, for example. The primary forces behind the (unfortunately) short lived BleedFest, a monthly West Coast event honoring femme based contributions to exploitation filmmaking, these two are truly exciting creative voices.
Brenda has produced many a vibrant short while Elisabeth wrote and directed 2009’s award winning The Commune, a mysterious shocker with 70s undertones.
Now, you can keep up with everything these two are doing by following their adventures, here:
