93:20 Who ever heard of gay flesh-eating zombies? Well, now we have, thanks to Chris Diani, and his new feature film, "Creatures from the Pink Lagoon". For a behind-the-scenes look at what has been aptly described as a cross between an Ed Wood and a Roger Waters production, join us as we chat with Chris, who directed, wrote and produced this purely camp horror romp.

Chris got his start in the entertainment business as a child actor, later switching to behind-the-scenes work, stage-managing and directing at various fringe theatres. In 2003 Chris graduated from Seattle Film Institute's Total Immersion filmmaking program and was immediately tapped to write and direct the "I Scream Pride" series, a quartet of short films promoting the Seattle Pride Festival. In 2005, Chris' short western, Bob Hope's Miracle Cure For Incarceration, was featured in the inaugural Seattle True Independent Film Festival.
