Chicago International REEL Shorts Film Festival screened the comedy-horror web series Dear Dark Lord, a production of alumnus Pat Cavanaugh ’14. The web series “chronicles a young woman’s dual struggles to: 1) Make it in the big city, and 2) Serve an unholy wretch known as ‘The Dark Lord.'”
The series is 8 episodes long and is aims to find “the humor and horror in searching for connection — and yourself — in early adulthood.”
Cavanaugh received his BA in English Writing and Political Science and is currently pursuing a MFA in Writing for the Screen and Stage at Northwestern University’s Graduate School. His involvement and performance at improv theaters is where Dear Dark Lord began in discussion with collaborator Ryan T. Eakins.
