Perpich alumni create horror film, “Night of The Living Bread,” about GMO issues

Perpich alumni Emily McKown ('08, theater junior/music senior) and Christer Bechtell ('07, media) have put together a Kickstarter for the movie they have been working on and are looking for your support.

The film, “Night of the Living Bread: The Dough Rises,” takes place at the Blue Heron Bakery in Olympia, Wash., where McKown works. McKown says the film, which is about a “GMO dough monster,” is “a fun way to support our local bakery—and it's given many of us the opportunity to pursue the passions we explored when we met at Perpich.” 

In addition to McKown and Bechtell, the film features work by Tyler Hagebusch ('08, visual arts) in cinematography and editing, and Jon Berres ( '07, visual arts) on animations and publicity. Many other Perpich grads have bolstered the project as well, including Tielure Lane ('07, theater), Nik Nerburn ('07, media) and Casey Wood ('07, visual arts), who, according to McKown, “have collaborated with us on many projects and continue to consult and support [us].”

To learn more about the project, and to support their work, check out McKown and Bechtell’s Kickstarter page. You can also read about the film in “The Olympian.”
