Massive Blood Drive PSA (Day 4): “The Coming Dawn Ministry” by Mark Miller & Christian Francis

Artist Statement

The Soska Sisters are leading a charge for change.  The Women in Horror Blood Drive is a lot more than just getting people to donate blood (which in itself is enough reason to take part) but they are also raising awareness and promoting equality, not only for women within the horror industry, but providing a voice for unknown filmmakers. This Blood Drive is about community, and expanding that community for the good of the industry – the fact it will may also save lives by getting people to donate blood? Well… the questions should be, how could we say no?

Christian Francis

Christian is a writer and designer whose work has appeared across multiple mediums… Well… that’s what he thinks. He’s probably wrong. Everyone is most likely lying to him, and creating fake websites and orchestrating far too elaborate practical jokes to make it look like his work is out there. 

He also really, really hates mushrooms and has a weird obsession with hand puppets. Being a good bio, I asked Christian what else he wanted to include here. He told me to ensure that everyone knows that the camera does indeed add 10lbs… Sometimes 20lbs… And as well as this, it also makes you a really bad actor. 

Make an Appointment to Donate Blood Today!

You can’t think horror without thinking blood! Every February, Women in Horror Month (WiHM) collaborates with Twisted Twins Productions, encouraging our supporters to donate blood.*

This annual call-to-action is a reminder that blood donation is a life-saving act in which you can claim hero status without taking out a horde of rotting zombies or blowing up the mothership. In fact, all it really requires to potentially save someone's life is making an appointment with the American Red CrossCanadian Blood Services, or at your local hospital.
