Zack Carlson has owned a punk record store, taught college courses on disreputable film history, toured internationally in various bands, and has amassed a bone-crushing collection of over 3000 forgotten VHS treasures. He’s a lead film programmer for the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema (called “The best movie theater in America” by Entertainment Weekly) and Fantastic Fest, the nation’s largest genre film festival. He lives in Austin, TX with his one wife and no children. Since age 10, Bryan Connolly has spent his life making independent films. He currently writes soon-to-be-award-winning screenplays with Zack Carlson under the banner King Originals.
