MADHOUSE GETS NEW PATIENT: BRIAN COTTINGTON

PATIENT: BRIAN COTTINGTON ILLNESS: FILM   1.       When did you start getting involved in the art? Where did you study? I had been involved in art period since I was able to hold a pencil in my hands.   As a kid, I would draw and paint pictures of everything from superheroes to monsters.   When I was in high school, I was heavily involved with Manga and Anime.   I loved the visuals that Anime had with movies like Vampire Hunter D and shows like Dragon Ball Z.   At that time, I was convinced that I was going to be a animator and draw anime cartoons for a living…. that all changed when I took a TV/Video class in my senior year.   In that class, I learned what video production was and got my hands on all the modes of production: pre production, production, and post.   I loved every minute of it even when everyone else in the class viewed it as a blow off class.   During the latter half of my senior year, I had to come up with a project that I had to complete in order to gradu

POETRY PROJECT: EROTICISM IN WARD C

NEW MEAT IN THE MADHOUSE: JENN LORING

Patient: Jenn Loring Illness: WRITER • When did you start writing? Why did you pick the genre you write it? I started writing when I was 12 (and it was terrible stuff!). I chose horror because even at that age I knew I wanted to explore darker themes and emotions. And I was already a fan of Stephen King. Clive Barker came into my life a few years later, and it was a done deal.   • Where you get your ideas from? Do you journal at all? I keep both a dream journal and a writing journal, and I just picked up a prompt journal while in Key West. I also get tons of ideas from reading non-fiction, and from other media like TV, music, etc., or from traveling. I write about various apocalypses a lot. That's something that has always fascinated me, and I'm definitely not done exploring it. I’m really excited about the Countdown to Apocalypse special on the History Channel. :D   • What’s a normal (writing) day like for you? I'm often writing as soon as I get up (usual
