About MeHello everyone! My name is Miah Allsman.
I've been active in Minnesota's local film community - writing and directing films for Green Shelf Productions over the last few years. I have recently decided to break away from Green Shelf to start my own production company, Pops Home Video, in honor of my dad, whom had passed away suddenly. Under this new label, I now do videography for films, events, weddings, music videos, corporate training videos, and so on.
I love collaborating with actors, make-up artists, costume designers/cosplayers, and other creative types in putting together my own low budget B-Movies inspired by the horror and science fiction films of the 80's. I like to make films that bring me back to my childhood. Some of my bigger influences are Charlie Chaplin, Billy Wilder, Roger Corman, John Carpenter, Sam Raimi, and Robert Rodriguez. I love science fiction, fantasy and campy horror films!
Hollywood has been notorious for casting mainly young, thin, attractive, straight, white people in their giant blockbuster hits and that has always bothered me. I think it not only makes for an unrealistic, stereotypical story but it also undermine's the sole purpose for making films in the first place and that is to make the audience believe that no matter who they are, they could be that hero in the story, they could be a secret spy, or a crime fighting vigilante, or a space traveler, or the incredible dancer that wins over the love interest, etc. There's little I can do about Hollywood's choices, but when it comes to my films, I plan to cast solely on talent and professionalism. So, If I'm casting for a film, please audition no matter what. Maybe you can give the performance that would knock my socks off!
