"Hooked" Comedy Web Series: Austin Comedy Short Film Festival Spring 2017 Official Selection

Director Luca Vecchi's pilot episode of the Italian Web Series "Hooked" has amazing production value, acting and is very funny. This web series pilot will screen at the Austin Comedy Short Film Festival Spring 2017 on Monday April 10th, 2017 at the Alamo Drafthouse - Lakeline. Tagline: "In a closed system that totally lacks information, external circumstances can influence our judgement. A sloppy dressed girls shivers and drools convulsively on the edge of a highway. It is 4 in the morning. Luca and Valerio are the ones trying to prevent this story to become popular on medias, but the chances to save an overdosed girl when you took the same substances are really poor. More in details, they are almost non-existent if you are as high as a clumsy doped horse."

"Sci Fi Chicks" Music Video: Austin Comedy Short Film Festival Spring 2017 Official Selection

"Sci Fi Chicks," directed by Laura Hauschild, is a fun fast moving funny music Video. Abbey and Kat are LA-based working performers who met while working as waitresses – where they would serve famous stand ups, writers and producers who told them to “keep making content they believed in.” The women quickly bonded over the fact that they were both going out for roles that were one-dimensional and didn't want to wait around to get picked. The duo also shared a desire to play roles embodied by strong female characters in iconic science fiction films from 'The Terminator' to 'Mad Max.'
