Subversive and compelling cartoon pilot “Don’t Tell My Wife I’m a Cult Leader” is an Ofﬁcial Selection at the 24th Annual Dallas VideoFest.
Dallas native and life-long cult enthusiast Todd Steinberg and creative partner Matt Rox present the pilot of their cartoon, “Don’t Tell My Wife I’m a Cult Leader” at the Angelika Film Center on Friday, September 23rd at 9:45pm as an ofﬁcial selection of the 24th Annual Dallas VideoFest. The darkly humored animated sitcom is about cult leader and husband Floyd Landers, his devoted followers, his unsuspecting wife, and the ever increasingly suspicious citizens of the small Texas town where Floyd’s cult resides.
“Word has gotten out about our show since we started pitching it around 2005, and reactions have been all over the place,” said Todd Steinberg, creator of the show. “Some wonder if it’s too dark a subject matter, while others have told me it’s the most hilarious concept they’ve ever heard. Now we would like to see what the D/FW community thinks of it at the Dallas VideoFest.”
Just like NPR ask authors what they are reading, or musician’s what is on their ipod, we have been asking filmmakers what they watch online
“The three top online productions that get most of my attention are the Onion, the Daily Show, and anything new or noteworthy over at the Mises Institute. I’ve probably watched every Onion News Network video since its inception in ’07 and I prefer watching small doses of the Daily Show online rather than entire episodes on the television. I have a big interest in economics, so I like to educate myself with the free podcasts and lectures that the Mises Institute offers.”
