Shylah Addante was the writer on a film titled The Christmas Dragon, which was a 2014 independent film (you can see it right now on Amazon Prime). It is also currently scheduled to be used in an upcoming episode of Mystery Science Theater 3000, expected December 16, 2023. Shylah and I have a great talk about what it’s like to grow up a film fan, how to transform that childhood interest into a lifelong career, and how MST3K plays a crucial role in making it easier for everyone to become a fan of goofy films.
Shylah has also written a book titled Garden of Thorns and Light, with a new book on the way.
