Wolf's Museum of Mystery

Wolf's Museum of Mystery is a story about two people who run a Museum in St. Augustine Florida; their many quirky patrons and a house ghost named Mary. Like any good paranormal film, it encompasses unexplained phenomena and includes several grisly murders. However, it is also a story about its two occupants - Wolf and his wife "Lilly" and their struggles to maintain a normal relationship trying to live inside such an environment.

The film is designed to showcase the popular world of oddities and fear of haunted possessions yet simultaneously entertain through a humorous & frightening story (aka Dark Comedy) and almost all told within the walls of a place that actually exists and can be visited by fans after the film's release to see and handle props used in the film.

Director Statement

It was the aspiring documentary filmmaker in me that drew me to Wolf's Museum of Mystery in the beginning. Once I was introduced to the museum I immediately wanted to work with them to tell the story of the items, the place and the family behind it. Wolf began communicating with me creatively and we formed a very genuine friendship that caused him to put his trust in me with his dream of a narrative short film he had written and wanted produced. He promised me an experience I would never forget with characters I would also never forget and he delivered.

It was a project well out of my comfort zone and it was an obstacle course of a production. We shot twenty-five scenes in five days on a micro-budget with a cast that mostly had never been on camera before. We assembled an all local crew that relentlessly gave this project every creative molecule in their body.

My goal was to create a film with a personality as odd and charming as the museum itself and I'm very proud to say I think we achieved that.
