Superficial Gallery Review of Father of Lies

"Early last year I reviewed the incredibly riveting short film Coming Home, from writer and director Shiva Rodriguez. Today we take a look at her next project Father of Lies, a more culturally accurate telling of Loki’s rise into a dangerous trickster god and another look into a twisted family dynamic. For those that only know the story of Loki and Thor from their playful banter in the MCU, Rodriguez is happy to set that story straight, bringing to light the far more hateful dynamic between the two."

Another year at TBUFF

Left to Right:  Steve Cardona ("Thor"), Dustin Mueller (Production Assistant), Bob Glazier ("Odin"), Shiva Rodriguez (Director/ "Sigyn"), Sandra Nye (Production Manager), D.Duckie Rodriguez ("Loki"), and Virginia Jasper (Craft Services).  

For once my film screened during the daytime, Sunday afternoon to be exact.  "Father of Lies" seemed to go over well, and I was told by more than once person that they'd like to see me keep going with mythology since no one they know on the low budget indie circles is tackling the subject.

Yeah, I can easily see a bunch of us getting back together to swing swords at each other until the wee hours of the morning.

Fun at Spooky Empire

Many of the Gods from "Father of Lies" appeared for the screening on Sunday.

Tyr (Garth Pettibone), Loki (D. Duckie Rodriguez), Sigyn (Yours Truly), and Thor (Steven Cardona).

You may have noticed that I'm dressed up as the Marvel version of Loki.  Strictly coincidence, I assure you. I've been working on that costume long before we ever wrote "Father of Lies".

The folks at the Ghostbusters display were apparently collecting "gods" at the convention.

Duckie and I were there for the full weekend and the others joined us on the day of our screening.  This is the biggest festival we've ever participated in and we really had a blast!

D.Duckie Rodriguez and me on Day One.

Women in Horror Film Festival

Duckie and I just got back from attending the Women in Horror Film Festival this past weekend where our feature screenplay "The Haunt" was a finalist.

This is truly my favorite festival when it comes to networking and the general supportive atmosphere for film-makers. Lots of men in attendance, all of whom want to see more women in the industry and come out to show their support.
