Riley Stearns was born in Austin, Texas. He used to write for Tower Prep on Cartoon Network and has made a couple other great and peculiar shorts starring his wife Mary Elizabeth Winstead called Magnificat and Casque. Riley is currently working on a feature-length movie about a young cult member in the midst of getting deprogrammed.The thing is, the expert doing the deprogramming doesn’t know who is worse: his parents or the cult. It should prove to be weird, wild, and worth checking out.

We recently sat down and had a chat about his short film The Cub, which you can watch here.
