WMU alumni Robin Nuyen graduated with a theatre degree in 1980 and met fellow theatre student Richard Gasparian during a production of Hamlet. In 1987 they co-wrote, co-produced and directed Housesitter… The Night They Saved Siegfried’s Brain. Filmed entirely in Kalamazoo and featuring WMU theatre faculty, the movie sat unfinished for thirty years. Now, with post sound from Skywalker Sound and final picture from Paramount Pictures color department, it is at last completed. It is now the only 4k 35mm movie shot entirely in Kalamazoo. The remastered film will be featured in the Thriller! Chiller! Film Festival in Grand Rapids on Oct. 27.
