Hi, my name is Alec Valadez and I'm attending the Austin Film Festival as a finalist in the Fiction Podcast category for my script Omagoshakee High, a teen drama parody set in the fictional Wisconsin town of Omagoshakee. While I will always have a love for podcasts and the audio drama format, I am also a filmmaker as well. Under the name Smadam Productions, my wife and I have made three short films, a handful of comedy sketches, and two web series. Additionally, I write feature length screenplays. Finishing them is a work in progress, but boy, do I love writing them.

Other than that, my interests include playing video games, defending bad movies and TV shows, and DJing dubstep sets for my friends.
