Early this evening I was contacted by a filmmaker who has created an EL MUERTO fan film! Yep, based on my character!
Elijio Carlos Ramirez, the writer & director, is going to be screening the movie at the Phoenix Comic Con Film Festival, taking place the weekend of May 28-31. He’s invited me to attend the screening, taking place Saturday evening, between the 10:30-11:30 Horror Festival block (Room West 104).
I knew nothing about this until he notified me, so this was a complete surprise, and flattering as heck. I always admire the work that fans do, whether it’s cosplay, fan art or fan films. And now to be a subject of a fan film myself, well, that’s a special kind of honor. In 2007, an independent film starring Wilmer Valderrama was released, which was a huge milestone for me. This has it’s own special excitement, and I’m very much looking forward to seeing the film, and meeting this team of filmmakers.
I'll be exhibiting all weekend at the convention at Table # 11137, so please stop by and visit if you're there.
