Writer/ Director Scott Schirmer's first feature length film, "Found," won Best Feature, Best Director and Best Actor at Elvira’s Horror Hunt in 2012. It went on to win Best Horror Feature at The Phoenix Film Festival and the Audience Prize and Jury Prize at the Nevermore Film Festival. It was also an official selection of the 31st Annual Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival.
This film features disturbing content as the topic explores a young boy discovering his older brother is a serial killer, yet the strength of the film comes from the relationship between the brothers, the internal motivation and yearnings in both, as well as the dynamic with the parents in this dysfunctional family.
Scott's in depth look into his characters surely comes from his study of sociology (with a concentration in gender studies) at Indiana University in Bloomington, where he earned his B.A.
Besides "Found," Scott has written and directed many award-winning short films. Scott also managed his hometown's Von Lee Theatre and hosted the film music appreciation program “Sounds of Cinema” on the city’s community radio station, WFHB.
"Found" will be showing at the FSC Super Geek Film Festival on Saturday, July 5. http://floridasupercon.com/found.

Although we are just 4 years apart in age and were neighbors about five houses away and students at Sts. Peter and Paul Elementary School, Arnold and I did not know each other very well until now that we are retired and I have returned to our common home. So, let's learn together what Arnold has to say about his life as a child growing up on St. Thomas.
"I was born at Easter-time 1950 on St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands – a 32 square mile island in the middle of the chain of islands that separates the Atlantic Ocean from the Caribbean Sea. Sixty-three years later, I'm still living on the same island. But I've had a lifetime of experiences and adventures – some of them positive and exciting, others terrifying and heartbreaking, and still others that were, quite frankly, very embarrassing. I invite you to travel with me down memory lane as I share with you what it was like growing up on this little island that its residents affectionately call 'The Rock'."
Some might think it is somewhat egotistical that I'm writing my life story. After all, why would anyone be interested in reading it? I guess in a way, that's true. However, I'm writing this mainly for my daughter, granddaughter, and their future descendants. It wasn't until very recently that I became interested in family history and, by that time, my grandparents, my father, and most of my aunts and uncles had already passed away. My wife, Helena Elvira Perkins, is in the same situation because her parents and other ancestors are also now gone. Unfortunately, we didn't think of asking them about their life stories when they were alive and now it's too late. Hopefully, this biography will serve that purpose and, at the same time, be of interest to anyone who has ever lived on St. Thomas.
This week Dr. Elvira will be speaking with Sandy Hoar, a practicing Physician Assistant, and Clinical Assistant Professor of Global Health and Health Sciences at George Washington University. They will cover many topics related to the delivery of quality healthcare, including Ms. Hoar's role as a Physician Assistant, her international work, community based health care in Mexico, and education; specifically, Teaching, Coaching, and online training.
This week, Dr. Elvira will speak with Eng. Ammar A. Mahdi, Founder and President of MEMECS (Middle East Monitoring, Evaluation and Consulting Services). They will discuss the work of MEMECS in Iraq and the challenges many programs face when conducting evaluations in post-conflict areas.
They will also discuss MEMECS' collaboration with MIDEGO to translate Health for All NOW in to Arabic.
