The Starvation Proclamation is adapted from the Twain satirical piece “Cannibalism in the Cars.” It's done tastefully, even though the subject matter involves a train cabin full of blizzard-stranded men and the desperate measures they must contemplate to maximize any chance of survival.
Up next is The Eden Diaries, a relationship comedy based on the struggles of the world's eponymous first couple, Adam and Eve. Here's a teaser excerpt from the faux diary that will be mined:
Adam's Journal: MONDAY: This new creature with the long hair is a good deal in the way. It is always hanging around and following me about. I don’t like this; I am not used to company. I wish it would stay with the other animals…. Cloudy today, wind in the east; think we shall have rain…. WE? Where did I get that word–Oh yes, I remember, the new creature uses it…The creative director of ESCFP is Jason Steele. His group premiered The Starvation Proclamation on October 20th at the Lone Pine Film History Museum.
