Orange Slate

The Man from Mars

A cynical podcast host hellbent on making fools of small town celebrities has just met his match: A charming woman who has her entire community believing she’s the second coming of Jesus Christ.

Directed By: Jonnie Stapleton

Director’s Bio: Jonnie Stapleton is a California-based director whose past credits include “The Beacon” short film and the feature length comedy “Best of Seven,” both of which received Best of Fest at the Eldorado Film Festival in 2014 and 2015. Originally from Nebraska, Jonnie also does choreography for various film, theatre and music video projects. A big ham himself, he will often cast himself as the lead whenever possible, sometimes in several roles (see aforementioned “Best of Seven”). If traveling through Arkansas, you may catch him rapping in the streets of Downtown El Dorado, his favorite home-away-from-home. (See Downtown Parody El Dorado on YouTube).
