Updates, new photos and new blogs

A big hello to our avid Joe & Nancy friends, enthusiasts and supporters,

It’s the time in the summer to give everyone updates on how our Joe & Nancy projects are progressing!  First we’ll start with our films: there are three (yes THREE) that are coming out by the end of August.

  1. The Halloween Special episode called Paper Masked Silence” — what should you expect?  Well, a halloween party gone terribly wrong, that’s what.  And, of course, there will be some miscommunication between a French speaker and Joe and Nance.  This film will come to you first in MID JULY.  So expect good news and a good mystery soon.
  2. The next episode coming your way is “Death in the Shadows” — the episode where Joe and Nancy take their MA exams and their friends pitch in to solve a murder.  Expect a beloved character to bite the dust.  Or will they???  This episode will be released LATE JULY. We’ll give you the exact dates for it as we draw closer.
  3. Finally, the last episode this season is “Joe & Nancy’s Beach House Murder Mystery”.  Those familiar with our kickstarter campaign know what this one is about.  For those just learning about us and our projects you can look at our kickstarter project here: Joe & Nancy’s Kickstarter campaign.  The episode follows Joe & Nancy and some friends as they celebrate their passing exams with a vacation on the beach in Wilmington, NC.  As one would expect, there’s a murder mystery that ensues.  This episode will be released in AUGUST. 

Every person part of the Joe & Nancy cast and crew is thrilled with the progress we’re making on the shorts.  We’re also thrilled to share with you some new cast photos from our photo shoot with the wonderful Durham, NC photographer Kayla Coleman.  You can check out her website here: Kayla Coleman Photography

There are also some new projects in the works, so we’ll keep you all apprised of them.  Our cast and crew members have been busy creating in other venues as well:

Finally, we’ll keep you posted on the developments as they happen!  We’re busy editing and adding music — we can’t wait to release the next short. Don’t forget to follow this blog so you can be the first to know when we release the new episodes!


The Origins of the Joe&Nancy Mysteries…

photography, travels and news writing

Yesterday, I mentioned that some friends and I launched a Kickstarter campaign to make a beach house mystery in Wilmington, NC. Let’s talk about the origins of the Joe&Nancy mystery films today!

When I started my second year of graduate school, my friend Teresa told me that one of her passions as an undergrad was making mystery shorts with her friends. Surprisingly enough, she hadn’t made just one or two shorts but rather five or six (and if the shorts she made in high school were included, we’d probably be talking about ten). So one day in the early fall semester 2011, she told me that making a mystery movie inspired by the Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys stories was one of her dreams. In general, when I think my friends have a big dream, I try to be quite supportive. And when this big dream sounds like…
