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!

  • The Yuba County Five
    This case is the most baffling set of events we have covered in quite a while.  Five men go to a basketball game and never come home.  Seems like it is straightforward but oh my goodness it is anything but that.  This is part one of two but honestly it could probably be one of […]

    Pedro Lopez spent the 1970s in Peru, Ecuador, and Columbia. Over that time span he sexually abused and murdered more than 100 little girls.

The story of Sally Horner is complicated and tragic and should make you think twice before opening your yap […]
  • Christopher Porco
    Sometimes criminals are sociopathic monsters, and Christopher Porco defintely is one. But he is also a complete frigging idiot which makes this the perfect end for Season Six. My goal is to lure you into a false sense of security so hopefully it works!  Enjoy!
  • The Worst Year in History - 536 CE
    Next time you are complaining about how terrible everything is, think about this show and consider what it was like to live in the year 536 and immediately after.  Not good.

  • 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
