Perhaps it started when I was a toddler and my mother would bring me to her university film classes. Maybe it was when that impossibly large star destroyer endlessly cruised overhead in a crowded cinema in 1977. It was definitely well-rooted by the time I was taking tickets at the Plaza Theatre as a teen. A five-year lost weekend trying to connect the cue dots in Hollywood made it both somehow near and far at the same time. However it happened, film and filmmaking have long been a passion, a pursuit, and a persona for me. Here’s how I’ve fared thus far…
A romantic comedy… with fur and fangs!
Werewolf Serenade, our latest feature film, is now claw-deep in post-production with January 2024 completion date!
When burnt-out college professor Peter MacTire accidentally becomes a werewolf, he and his concert cellist wife Julia embrace the change to thwart an evil occultist plot, save the college, and their marriage.
The film stars Emily Keyishian, Mark Robinson, Alia Beeton, and Daedalus Howell, was produced by Kary Hess, and written and directed by Daedalus Howell.
Love means never having to say you’re a werewolf.

The author of a quantum travel guide seems to think so.

You see, kids, there used to be this thing called MTV. Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?
Is there a documentary in the house? Yes, here’s a playlist of at least five.
Short Films Made Cheap
This is a collection of short film often made with collaborator Raymond Scott Daigle. Clearly we had a little too much fun.

How-To and How-Not-To’s from when Father Knew Best (and he might of been Lenny Bruce). Cheeky irreverence served up 1950s-style, written and directed by Jerry Rapp and Daedalus Howell.
