The Living Tarot Project

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.


Video: Dark Oak Authors Present “Retro Radio” at Alabama Phoenix Festival

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…

Presenting a Dark Oak *Mock* Short Film, Attack of the Killer Beignets! (…and its mocumentary.)

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!
