As Hollywood continues its obsession with sequels, prequels, spinoffs, remakes, and reboots, Tim Kirk has created a new niche with a fresh, and often demented, take on existing material.
A few months after the inaugural 2014 festival, our team decided to pull together all the profits from the festival and send team member Kelsey Hockmuller into space to discover the true meaning of Science Fiction. The launch and first six months of the exploration went well, but then silence. We tracked the ship and it has been orbiting Saturn for the last year and a half. The great news is the Other Worlds Austin team was able to raise enough money to send a rescue mission to save Kelsey and her crew. Since we have no idea what made the ship go dark, we are planning for everything. Please keep Kelsey in your thoughts. She is screaming right now and no one can hear her.

Somebody thought it would be hilarious to put that creepy antique doll at the end of my bed staring at me while I was asleep. And I would wake up to it looking at me. For years I assumed it had been my brother (sorry Dusty!) playing a prank on me, but when I brought the story up to my father he got a sheepish look on his face and confessed that it was him and mom all along.
