On a warm Summer afternoon, Kimberly Richardson invited several friends to join her for an unique project. Armed with makeup, costumes, cameras, and a willingness to look a bit odd in public, they spend an afternoon exploring what it would be like to be photographed as The Living Tarot.
Join with Dark Oak authors, the Expedition Unknown team, and a few other crazy people as they perform a hilarious cold read of an early radio drama at one of the Alabama Phoenix Festival‘s evening panels. Each person was given a script they had never seen before and assigned a part. The script was from a 1950’s radio show called Zero Hour, and it was modeled after some of Ray Bradbury’s short stories. Just a warning: it’s at a convention after dark, and words don’t have the same meanings now as they did in the 50’s. (This would probably be rated PG or PG-13 for some adult content.)
Unfortunately for those involved, someone had a video camera…

What happens when bored Dark Oak authors get access to a video camera at a convention? A really, really bad short film called, Attack of the Killer Beignets. The brainchild of Kimberly Richardson and Andrea Judy, Attack of the Killer Beignets is a really bad Indiana Jones spoof starring M. B. Weston and Tommy Hancock. It’s 4:25 of your life you will never get back, but it’s worth it for the complete hilarity and utter silliness. And what’s a short film without a mockumentary about it’s making?
The lesson, my friends? Buy Dark Oak books, or we’ll make more of these!
