One of the big projects I’ve been working on this year is the first installement in a series of shorts about people that build haunted mazes in their backyards. The first is on an artist from El Sereno, CA named Albert Reyes. In his backyard he has made a giant haunted house/maze inspired by burned out buildings. Occasionally he will build smaller mazes in gallery settings, but it is his ever changing backyard maze that really impressed me, leading to the creation of a film about it.
This Saturday, August 25th, I will be premiering the trailer for this film at the Echoplex here in Los Angeles. As a part of the PressNPlay fest happening during the larger Echo Park Rising events, Albert Reyes is building a maze inside the Echoplex so you can experience his work first hand. The maze will contain a pop-up store where you can view the trailer, view and buy work by Albert Reyes, and shop for vinyl releases on Deathbomb Arc. The maze will feature original music by S.R. Cano (aka tik///tik). This takes place from noon till 7pm that day in the well air-conditioned lower level of the Echo. For more info, please see the facebook rsvp for the event.
The maze is presented with the generous help of Synchronicity Space.
While not 100% necessary, it is recommended you reserve your free ticket for the event online, just in case more people show up than can be accommodated.
Unending thanks to Angie Meng for her help with making this film and to Origami Vinyl for connecting us in contact with the Echo.
