Award Winning Web Series Dark Lord.png

Dear Dark Lord had its festival premiere on Friday November 9th, 2018 at the Chicago International REEL Shorts Film Festival. We were honored to be part of programming that included amazing shorts, ranging from heartfelt comedies to high-concept sci-fi films.

Dear Dark Lord won an Audience Award for the Friday night slot of programming. We couldn’t have done this without all our fans. Thank you for taking time away from re-arranging your bone piles to worship our Dark Lord.

Dear Dark Lord wrapped filming on season 1 last week. Woawowwoah.

We made a web series!

Unfortunately, we didn't film everything in order, so we have to edit the damn thing! 

Anyways, we're done making new video clips, and we have a lot more time to do other stuff.

So, what's new with you?

First episode is coming out soon!


Set Shots from Filming Dear Dark Lord Season 1

Hi friends,

Pat here. I’m a writer and co-creator of Dear Dark Lord. I just wanted to share some quick set shots from production so far on this Chicago web series.

We’re coming up on one of our last big shooting days this weekend. I’ll likely provide a post-mortem on DIY filmmaking in Chicago when we’re done. Until then, here are some sneak peaks at the series. Enjoy — and keep in touch for more updates on our progress with the web series!

P.S. I do not know who Ham Stevens is, or how he got posting permission on our site. I’ve read your comments. We are diligently working on finding a solution to this apparent hack of Dear Dark Lord. Sorry for any confusion, and thank you for your patience.
