  • Behind the Scenes: Blood and Bile

    Words and photos by Charlie Pearce-

    Already proven members of the Austin independent film industry, co-writers Americo Siller and Tyler Mager make their directorial debut by paying tribute to 70’s style horror with their short film “WITCH.” The story follows a young troubled couple that finds themselves involved with a mysterious woman who puts them on a bloody and twisted path towards reconciliation. The Daily Texan was behind the scenes to capture all the blood, bile and monsters one film set could handle.
