Feedback From New Platforms

I started posting select Scared Stiff films to our official Facebook page. So far the views are much higher than they have been on YouTube. I haven't researched the full analyst yet so I don't know how many people have stayed to watch the whole movie or who clicked on it and off without finishing it but the results are promising so far. I have read that videos posted on Facebook appear more frequently on feeds then those that are posted from Facebook. Gonna try a few more video posting sites and see what gains some momentum as we prepare to go into production on new films. No need to be exclusive to YouTube anymore.

Time to Expand to Different Platforms (And a NEW Movie!)

We released a brand new short film last week. I believe it's the 60th or 61st under the Scared Stiff brand. Pretty proud of it, especially considering that we had just a three person crew on set. The new film stars Scared Stiff regular, the very talented Joe Nemchek and Barbara Robertson. This is Barbara's third film with Scared Stiff. Her first being "Tiny's Halloween" way back in 2009. Please check it out and share! We filmed most of it back in October on a Sony FS7 but finished it recently on a RED ONE MX.

This episode marks the end of Scared Stiff's exclusivity to YouTube. Shortly, we will start sharing selected episodes and all future episodes on other platforms. YouTube viewership had almost completely died out over the years when it comes to our show. I liked having all films in one place to be able to accurately check the analytics, but we must evolve. Any emerging platforms you think we should check out? Please leave a comment below. Enjoy!

A Tragic Loss

Where to start? We've actually released three new films since my last post. But I will mention those in a future post. More importantly, we lost a Scared Stiff family member last year. John "Dolo Ello" Ragin passed away suddenly and shockingly back in September. Since 2011, Dolo created soundtracks for 29 of the Scared Stiff films. He acted in a few of them, including starring as "Malcolm", the man in the radio station in "The Zombie Chronicles". He was an important collaborator and his talents and contributions were vitally important to "Scared Stiff". The show won't be the same without him. He left behind a wife and a young daughter. He will be missed dearly.
