      North Carolina, 2005-2006. John Hartman came across what is common down there: old abandoned farm houses. Many are so overgrown that the entire structure has become engulfed by weeds, ivy, vines, bushes, and trees. Sometimes farmers just mow the lawn around these old structures, in lieu of razing them to the ground. He could not resist entering a semi-charred dwelling with broken windows, rickety floors, and a very shaky, badly burned staircase. The inside was littered with cobwebs, dusty antique furniture, and several burnt dolls. The home was last inhabited by humans in the late 60s...the dolls live there still! Beatnik poetry, a spiritual principle, and a 1970s Canon XL-514 super 8mm camera forges the story of a fire that devastates several dolls living in an art-house commune. The fire leaves one doll alive, who is haunted by the dolls that were burned to death. Hope U enjoy the show!

KRISTEN LUCAS, EXECUTIVE PRODUCER Kristen is a force to be reckoned with in indie film in New England. Her Goldilocks Productions has a number of projects in development and she seems to have more energy than she knows what to do with. Over the past few years, she’s also had a weight problem creeping up on her. After being diagnosed as morbidly obese in 2010, she decided to undergo weight loss surgery. Today, Kristen is near goal and excited about where things are going. C.G. “ZEE” ZARBOCK, EXECUTIVE PRODUCER Zee, as she likes to be called, has been an independent filmmaker for more than a decade with her company, Unfolding Story Pictures. She has also dealt with a serious weight problem since the age of five. At one point in 2001, she reached her top weight of about 390 pounds. Zee managed to lose about 70 pounds on her own and kept most of it off. But by 2008, her health was going downhill and the quality of her life was becoming seriously affected. After struggling with the decision for a decade, she finally decided to have RNY weight loss surgery in September 2009. Since then, she’s lost 125 more pounds and is only a few pounds away from no longer being obese, according to BMI. Still a work-in-progress, she feels like she has a new life and is embracing everything positive it has to offer. STEVE NICANDER, PRODUCER Two years ago, Steve Nicander weighed over 600 pounds and was at death’s door in a rehab center. Super super morbidly obese and vowing to change his life forever, Steve adopted a natural approach to his weight loss by concentrating on healthy, whole organic foods and as much exercise as he could manage each day. As of today, Steve has lost 360 pounds and is racing toward his goal of reaching 230 by the fall of 2011. He campaigns tirelessly for reversing America’s growing health and obesity crisis, and is an advocate for those who struggle with their weight. Steve is especially concerned for those who are in the position he was in only two years ago, and he reaches out to help folks in any way he can.

          Welcome to the first episode of Quest for the Indie Tube from Reel Groovy Films! I am a co-producer of this series. About Quest for the Indie Tube: Dr. Alexander Lewis, sustained only by art house love, attempts to save the world from dumbed-down television created by the Dark Programmer in "Quest for the Indie Tube." About Season 1: This epic "webisode" series revolves around an eccentric Inventor and his android machines, who are on a "steam-punk" quest to secure the "Indie Tube" - a magical talisman that may be used for forces of good or evil. About Episode III: Episode III of Quest for the Indie Tube, finds Dr. Alexander Lewis in the most horrid throws of despair as he struggles to survive attacks from the Dark programer, being arrested by the authorities, and his endless nightmares. There is hope, however, as the "Entity of Light" begins to affect positive change upon the computerized and televised programming of the world. The flavor of this series could be described as a steampunk Dr. Who that meets Quai Chang Caine, which has allowed us to incorporate science fiction, metaphysical spirituality, and a touch of German Expressionism. The main idea is to create artistic and inspirational entertainment that takes the audience beyond mainstream programming.
