VERY pleased to announce that MARY MARGARET ROAD-GRADER, the second of the Howard Waldrop shorts we’ve produced, kicked ass and took names at its world premiere, taking home the honors as Best Indigenous Short at the deadCenter Film Festival in Oklahoma City.

Steven Paul Judd and Elias Gallegos represented the Fevre River Packet Company and Lumenscape Productions at the festival, while Taylor Church attended on behalf of Trioscope.   Elias also played the part of Simon Red Bulldozer.  Steven directed the film from his own screenplay, a lovely (and faithful) adaptation of Howard’s classic short story.   Crystle Lightning starred as Mary Margaret herself, and Martin Sensemeier as Billy-Bob Chevrolet.

Sadly, we lost Howard in January, but he was there in spirit… and also on celluloid, sitting into for a brief cameo appearance in a council scene.  I like to think he would have been proud of us.  I do know he liked the movie; were able to screen it for him in the week before his death.


Here’s the full list of all the deadCenter winners for 2024:

Here are the 2024 deadCenter Film Festival award winners!

For all you Waldrop fans who couldn’t make it to Oklahoma City last weekend, hang in there… we’re sending MARY MARGARET out on the  circuit, and have her on submission at another dozen festivals around the country and the world.  I will be sure to let you know when and where the movie will be appearing next.

And we’re not done yet.   We’re almost done with post on THE UGLY CHICKENS, and Howard Hamster and his own gang will be along after that.   Watch this space.
