FAQ

Lucas McNelly is a filmmaker from the great state of Maine who somehow ended up in Pittsburgh, where he lives with his girlfriend and a cat who's trying to kill him. His short film gravida finished second in the 2008 Now Film Festival (damn you, Rainn Wilson), and he's currently working on a feature. He's one of the original Muriel voters, and doesn't update his blog 100 Films nearly as often as he did when he was single.
