On Sunday night, the monsters finally got the help they were looking for.
“Monsters Anonymous” wrapped up filming Monday morning. The movie, funded through a Kickstarter campaign, was a project spearheaded by writer and producer Jason Robbins and well-known actor and director Jeremy London.
The short film comedy, shot at the Mary C. O’Keefe Center in Ocean Springs, follows classic movie monsters Frankenstein, the mummy, Dracula, played by “Clerks” star Brian O’Halloran, and others. The monsters, distraught because they’re no long scary, enter a group therapy session led by a therapist played by “Queen of Versailles” star Jackie Siegel.
The crew of about 90 people shot from 7 Sunday night to 7 Monday morning. “The people we got together to put this whole thing together, you couldn’t have aligned the stars any better for the people that we got and the people that are working for pennies basically to make this thing come together. Lot of post-production work to do and editing and all the effects we’re going to do, the after-effects. It should take about two to three months then we’re going to release it,” said Robbins.
Robbins went on to tell News 25 that the release will be held at the Mary C.
