Superficial Studios

Superficial Studios is dedicated to working with screenwriters and filmmakers with significant funding and recognition hurdles by leveraging the time, talent and treasure of some incredible people to get their films made.  Our own Andrew Hass runs Lost in the Woods Productions with Kynda Laufmann and is throwing all of their considerable resources at this venture to make it possible.

It is hard for anyone to get a film made.  It is much harder for women, people of color and anyone from the LGBTQ community. Our focus is on these screenwriters who have been taking the long way around for too long. You have stories to tell?  That’s why we’re here so submit your script.  Let’s Scare Them!

“They’re Watching” Films in Washington State

The second film from Superficial Studios, They're Watching, was filmed earlier in January in snowy Washington state.  Penned by Samantha Bringas, the horror short is the first of her films ever produced and we could not be happier with our choice to make it or the...

  • Pauline Dakin
    So if when you were a kid you had to move all the time and worry about assassins and your mom pulled you out of school in the middle of the day to hide from kidnappers would you find it exciting? I ask because that is exactly what happened to Pauline Dakin growing up.  The […]
  • Elma Sands - The Manhattan Well Murder
    Take a young couple who might be in love, the bustling city of Manhattan, and a mystery and you have a good story. Make the year 1799, add Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr, and add a liberal serving of the first recorded murder trial transcript in the history of the United States and you have […]
  • The Disappearance of Larry Griffin
    We take the letter carrier who gives us our bills and Bed Bath and Beyond coupons for granted, but back in 1929, Larry Griffin, the postman for Stradbally, Ireland, got taken in a very different way. Join us for the tale of how some townies ruined the Christmas of a genteel (and drunk) civil servant!
  • Elephants
    The glory that is elephants is really something to behold. They are smart, empathetic, and sometimes deadly!  Join us as we look into why elephants kill, who they kill, and get all judgey about whether or not the killings are justified. The whales of the land are ready to be explored!
  • The Anasazi Part 2
    We wrap up Native American Heritage Month with the second half of the story of the people in the Southwest who built an amazing society and then just sort of melted away. Where did they go?  Well that's what we are going to try to find out in the conclusion to our coverage of The […]
  • The Anasazi Part 1
    There are wonders within the boundaries of what is now the United States that way too many people don't know about. Continuing our dedication to Native American History Month we present the first part of the people that are known by some as the Anasazi. Also, we learn what happens when a cowpoke decides poking […]
  • The Serpent Mound
    The indigenous people of what is now called Ohio decided to make themselves a monument and we're gonna talk about it.  The location is the largest effigy mound in the world and we will be sure to explain what an effigy mound is right near the beginning (sort of) so you aren't lost!  
  • Rebecca Zahau
    Sometimes the official story seems mighty sus. This week, Acadia and Shooey take a look at the case of Rebecca Zahau, who was declared a suicide and the facts of the case seem to point to the absolute opposite of that. Come with us to sunny San Deigo as we dig into this sad story.
  • Demons, Mistakes, and Kennedy Ife
    Since this is the Halloween episode for 2021, we thought we would keep riding the demon train. Unfortunately, as usual, we learned that humans are what screws most things up.  They certainly did in the case of Kennedy Ife. Also, we might directly and overtly attack pretty much all of the religions. I can't remember […]
  • Danielle Harkins
    When you send your kids to school, you have a reasonable expectation that they will not be brainwashed into believing that they have demons inside them that have to be let out. Unless Danielle Harkins is their teacher, then you totally should NOT have that expectation because it is gonna happen!
