A Twin Peaks fan film could continue the story of Dale Cooper and Annie Blackburn if longtime Obnoxious and Anonymous podcast host Cameron Cloutier’s new IndieGoGo campaign is successful for his ‘Queen of Hearts’ project. Alternative Nation has followed Cameron’s podcasts for years and his Twin Peaks Worldwide Facebook page, and strongly suggests you consider donating if you are interested in seeing this film.
The campaign overview states:
“Twin Peaks” was my “Star Wars”. Perfect tone, mood, writing, directing, acting, music.
Fall 1990: While my high school watched “Beverly Hills 90210”, I was the 14 year old who stayed home on Saturday nights and watched “Twin Peaks”. Needless to say, I wasn’t exactly the cool kid. I didn’t care. I was happy.
Fall 2017: I was recently asked, “What creative project would you like to work on next?” I replied, “Make the “Twin Peaks” film I’ve been dreaming of since high school.”
So here we are.
The campaign’s story states:
“I’ve got good news.” – Man From Another Place
Hey everyone, my name is Cameron and for the past five years, I have run a very popular “Twin Peaks” video podcast on the Obnoxious and Anonymous Youtube channel.
As some of you may or may not know, I’ve been flirting recently with the idea of finally making my “Twin Peaks” fan film.
Over the last several months I’ve seen a number of other “Twin Peaks” related fan films and I honestly really like what I’ve seen. However in viewing these materials, it brought back a hunger that I’ve been quietly wanting to satisfy for 25 years now—and no, a Snickers bar is not going to work this time.

You see, back in the fall of 1992, when I was just 16 years old, I came up with several ideas for the “Twin Peaks” universe that over time I would converge and mold into one enthralling, pretty epic storyline— should I ever get the amazing opportunity to make a “Twin Peaks” related movie.
Now with the internet, equipment being more affordable and the rise of fan films, I feel now is the time to not only (once and for all) make my “Twin Peaks” film but to be able to do it properly.
Now those of you who have been watching me talk about “Twin Peaks” for the past five years online can definitely attest that whether or not you agree with me on certain points, my love for this world and its storytelling is as big as it can possibly be. I’ve been a enthusiast of “Twin Peaks” since it began in 1990 and was a David Lynch fan long before the pilot even debuted.

As some of you (again) may or may not know, my fan film revolves around the character of Annie Blackburn. Other notables that appear are Windom and Caroline Earle, as well as Dale Cooper.
While my story will most likely never be considered canon by David Lynch and Mark Frost, it can easily be placed within the guidelines they set up in all three seasons, as well as “The Final Dossier”–and to me, a “Twin Peaks” continuity fanatic, that’s pretty cool.
