WiHM Blood Drive PSA 9, My Father, My Hero by Andrew Hass and Kynda Laufmann

WiHM9 Blood Drive, PSA #10 – My Father, My Hero

Greetings and salutations! Happy tenth PSA of Women in Horror Month, Souls! House of Tortured Souls is proud to present the next entry in this year’s Women in Horror Month Blood Drive.

Today’s PSA comes to us from Andrew Hass and Kynda Laufmann.

As always, here’s the obligatory disclaimer (not that we need it, right Souls?):

DISCLAIMER: This IS Horror, boys and grrls, so SOME of these do have VERY naughty content. Blood. Gore. EXTREME gore. Disturbing situations. Nudity. Sexual situations. Violence. Language.
If you are SENSITIVE to this kind of content, be a mature human being and just don’t watch. No need to spoil the fun for us fellow weirdos. We’re not hurting anyone. It just REALLY looks like we are 😉

And without further ado, behold the incredible tenth Blood Drive PSA of Women in Horror Month:

MINI BIO, ANDREW HASS:

Andrew Hass was born and raised in Los Angeles, CA. He moved away from Los Angeles in his late teens and has spent most of his time since in the PNW. He is married to his partner in both life and art, Kynda Laufmann, with whom he has two sons. Andrew’s close family has been involved in filmmaking since the 1930’s, when his great grandfather first worked as a stuntman. Most of his immediate family has worked in the film industry, since. Andrew had never worked in film until, in 2014, an opportunity to provide sound work for an independent feature horror film was brought to him and sparked an interest that has led to writing and directing. In the four years since he has worked on both feature and short films, working as director of photography, editor, sound department, writer, and director. Andrew’s passion and focus lies in making independent horror films.

MINI BIO, KYNDA LAUFMANN:

Kynda Laufmann grew up in Colorado and moved to Washington for school. She graduated with a degree in Psychology and loves her day job working as a Clinical Supervisor helping kids with developmental disabilities. Kynda caught Andrew staring in 2009, and hasn’t let him go. Andrew has since piqued Kynda’s interest in film production and they decided to team up on their own projects, leading to the creation of Lost in the Woods Productions. Kynda enjoys being on set and contributing to the creative process, and likes to think her perfectionistic tendencies lend themselves to a better film.

ARTIST’S STATEMENT:

Someone, at some point, donated the blood that was used to save my life. I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at 27, and during the ensuing hospital stay I needed blood to save my life. Additionally, since 2011 I have undergone multiple major surgeries that required blood transfusions. Blood donations are a direct part of why I am alive, today. There’s not a hospital in the world that isn’t in need of blood and there are never enough people donating.
I’m participating in the annual PSA Blood Drive for Women in Horror Month because life can change at any moment; you never know when you’ll need a little help from a strange. If you can, please give blood at your local donation center or spread the word!

Remember, Souls, there’ll be a new PSA every day up to and including 1 March 2018, and please check out the official WiHM website for more on Women in Horror Month.
