Becki Kregoski: Summer Filming: Day 5

"For all of you who asked, here's what I can tell you about the movie and my role in it. "A teenage girl plots revenge on the guy she likes after he humiliates her." The movie is called "Summer Campbell". I play the teenage girl, June Campbell, whose two best friends (who are twins) help her wreak havoc and revenge on the popular guy who humiliates her. It's a short film that is written and directed by the incredibly talented Scott Sullivan."

The Last Stand: Dearly Departed - Ep. 2

Zombies. Remnants of the military. Viral infection. No food or clean water. As if this wasn't enough, now the survivors are turning on each other. When hope is all you hold on to, the past becomes the ghost that won't let you rest. The inner demons are just as hard to vanquish as the infected that now walk the earth. When the group set out together, they were seven people looking for hope. By the end of the last episode, zombies were encroaching on their hideout, bombers were closing in on their location, and one of them had turned on them to thin out the herd. "Dearly Departed" picks up with the survivors en route to St. Teresa's, the only place they know that may be safe from the viral scourge that is transforming everyone susceptible.

Feel Good Film Festival - New Media Event & Gala August 2010

In the last decade a new form of entertainment has erupted onto small screens across America. But we aren't talking about television, we're talking computers, cell phones, and now ipads. The content in question, the web series, has existed as long as sites like youtube have provided an outlet for creators to display their work.


We’re Making a Documentary. Wait.. What?

The film will document the next year of transmedia storytelling and will include a behind the scenes look at Remix Fiction’s flagship property.


This will be a community-driven film that will be released for free under a creative commons license in October 2011.
