Day 10’s WiHM Massive Blood Drive PSA “My Father, My Hero” by Andrew Hass and Kynda Laufmann is a Classic Slice of American Life with a Bloody Twist.
“We’re back at it with a brand new Women In Horror Month MASSIVE Blood Drive PSA! All month long we’re sending out the call to be a hero, roll up your sleeves, and donate blood. After all, it’s in you to give. This year we have thirty days of PSAs because we are featuring a new filmmaking team daily! Yes, we have an astounding 30 filmmaking teams this year and it feels damn good.” – Jen and Sylvia Soska
We are treated to “My Father, My Hero” today created by the husband and wife team of Andrew Hass and Kynda Laufmann. It’s a ‘Leave It To Be Beaver’ type episode, complete with audience reaction tracks. But it wouldn’t be a horror infused PSA without a nasty little twist to the quintessential American family.
The adorable couple caught the filmmaking bug together, and enjoy focusing on the horror genre. Andrew and Kynda had this to say:
“Someone at some point, donated the blood that was used to save my life. I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at 27, and during the ensuing hospital stay I needed blood to save my life. Additionally, since 2011 I have undergone multiple major surgeries that required blood transfusions. Blood donations are a direct part of why I am alive, today. There’s not a hospital in the the world that isn’t in need of blood and there are never enough people donating.”
They added, “Because of blood donations I am able to be here with my partner, creating the art that we love. That is why we are involved in the Women In Horror Month Blood Drive PSAs and why we believe it is so important to donate blood!”
