Dirt Old Superstition Webseries

Enter Oasis, IL. a small town of myths, legends, superstitions and no such thing as coincidences. An engaging ensemble cast; some of which cause while others must overcome mysterious circumstances.

The final episode was released Feb 14, 2018, completing our first series! With each additional episode the plot thickens, the character connections run deeper and the web of mystery grows as what appeared to be an unrelated series of unnatural phenomenon becomes a full blown supernatural murder mystery! Fans of Fantasy and Sci-Fi alike can join forces in figuring out who’s behind the stigmata in a small town called Oasis. Thank you greatly for your consideration.

Director Statement

As a first-time filmmaker, I am thrilled to discover my web series has organically attracted nearly 1,000 followers on Facebook with an additional fanbase growing on other social media platforms. It was an incredible learn-by-doing experience. I got to work with such a diverse cast and crew from all backgrounds who helped pull off an immense ensemble piece that was beyond the scope of what should have been possible. I am proud of the team that made it possible.
