In this episode Wayne interviews Jimmy O and April Burril. They both have a bloody horror history and tell tales of their handywork on web TV, movies, and their own special productions.
Jimmyo was an artist/designer in special promotions for Warner Home Video from 1986-1990. And did amazing artwork for Batman, Joe Vs The Volcano, Gremlins 2, and Bugs Bunny's 50th Birthday and played drums since he was 2 years old.
April started acting on a regular basis in 1997 when she joined the theater troupe, Jamo Alternative Theater. For several years, she worked with them on- and back-stage helping to bring to life their quirky original productions, the most popular of which was the horror-comedy-musical, Silver Scream. The character of Chainsaw Sally was originally created as a web hostess to garner popularity for the live show, but she quickly gained her own fan-base. When she left the stage to move on to film projects in the guise of Planet X Entertainment (now known as Forbidden Pictures), Chainsaw Sally was the natural choice for our first full film project. A few projects later her husband Jimmyo Burril came up with The Chainsaw Sally Show slash-com series.
