Here’s a new award-wining* film I made with Bill Scurry, from a script I wrote with Daily Show writer Elliott Kalan.
Directed by Kevin Maher and Bill Scurry
Written by Kevin Maher and Elliott Kalan
(with an additional joke by Michael Reisman)
Edited by Bill Scurry
Sound and lighting design by Spencer Moore
Title card illustration by Mike Young
Shot entirely aboard The USCGC LILAC, an authentic 1933 lighthouse tender. You can visit the historic ship at Pier 25 in New York City. (To learn more, click here.)
*King King: Deleted Scene won the audience award at the Iron Mule comedy film festival. It also played at the Gangrene film festival in Salt Lake City. The film premiered at the 92Y Tribeca as part of KEVIN GEEEKS OUT ABOUT MONKEYS (a multi-media variety show about primates in movies, television and comic books.)
Fun-fact: I wanted to make sure no one had already explored this angle, so I read some KONG fanfiction online. But everything I read was gratuitous sex scenes, often involving Captain Englehorn and female characters who don’t appear in the film.
