Logan Fry works from his farm and studio in Richfield, Ohio. He has been an attorney, weaver and artist, but now devotes his time and energy to filmmaking. These are not "Hollywood" style flicks with multi-million dollar budgets, not even great short films from recent film school graduates. So his only hope is to make funny flicks that people enjoy, and even get a laugh or two. He's now bringing "Gimme Head: the Tale of the Cuyahoga Valley Bigfoot" directly to the public. Run-ning nearly 40 minutes, it's a fully realized Triple-B film (blood, boobs and beast) in the spirit of cult film director, Don Dohler. Critics are enthralled (and some even outraged). As one critic said recently: "Campy, rough, and amateurish, 'Gimme Head...' is hilarious and fast paced. If you loved 'Plan 9 from Outer Space' or Don Dohler's 'Nightbeast' you will instantly take to 'Gimme Head...' "
"What’s not to like about that?" says Fry
Earl Douglas J Palmer
Earl Douglas J Palmer, is an LA based Welsh actor. Born on the 21st April (same day as the Queen of England, 1 day after Hitler and 1 day before Jack Nicholas) 1977 in Newport, Wales. He attended Hartridge Comprehensive School before going onto further education at Cross Keys College and higher education at the University of Wales College Newport graduating in 2000 with a BA Joint Hon's degree in Sport Studies and Information Technology. Earl spent a lot of his early years at his grandmothers video store, which later became his fathers store, spending hours watching movies. This is where his passion for film originates. Sadly Blockbuster set up a few miles down the road and ended the shop, but I have shares in Netflix, so who is laughing now Blockbuster (thats a lie, I wish). Earl's first acting role came at the age of 10 when he was the understudy to Joseph in the Ringland Junior School nativity play. He would perform the role to the infant school children on the Monday, but was relegated back to understudy for the main performance on the Tuesday to his relief. The acting career stalled for the next 20 years as a life of sport took over. His first acting role as an adult, came in 2005 feature length film War Crimes where he played the lead Scott, a student protesting the war in Bosnia. More roles followed in the years to come, but really took off after linking up with Panik Attak Productions in Cardiff where Earl worked on award winning projects, The Next Blair Witch, A Very Important Call and the Peters Foods advertising campaign. Earl's career has led him to Los Angeles where he continues to work as he tries to obtain his green card, enabling him to remain in the US so he may continue to chase the dream. "If you aren't creating, you are waiting." led Earl to write his first script Daipool, which he also produced and acted in, which will be premiered in 2017.
