We’re very happy to announce that our hygienic serial killer short MR CLEAN is an official selection of the 4th Dimension Independent Film Festival in Indonesia – the same festival that IMPRINT recently won an award at. This makes it the 25th festival selection. Nice.
Also, the SEVERED LIMBS FILM FESTIVAL 6: THROW ANOTHER HEAD ON THE BARBIE! screening of MR CLEAN and 30 other films is this weekend. The official lineup is HERE. And the live event will be screened on the official youtube channel.
I’m also pleased, as it was killing me, to finally announce that I’ve finally finished scripting the 3rd feature script of the year, for a feature-length pagan horror project entitled: BLÖDA (aka ‘The Bleeding’).Soon i will be giving it a read, and trying to work out what needs fixing, as well as checking in with some trusted friends and fellow writers / filmmakers, to find out what they think of the project, but also, as I’ve already begun assembling some props, I’ll be working out when and in what form I will make this feature film. My desire was and still is to shoot it this autumn. However, that may not be reasonable or feasible. But we’ll see, more on that soon. For now, I’m just super happy to tick that one off the whiteboard as being done… for now.
It was a hard script to write. I was already burned out after the last two. I was working long hours. I got my second dose of the Covid vaccine, had a rough time with the symptoms, and then a resurgence of Shingles as a result of my immune system being weakened and run down. Nice. So Instead of the allotted 4 weeks, this took 6 weeks to write, due to having to take a week and a half off, and actually take a couple of evenings off for my sanity, to see friends and help my relationship. It’s weird, knowing the story you want to write, and having zero energy or fuel in the fire to get it done. But again, 2.5 average pages a day, in anything from 1-2hrs slots, is enough to get it done. Although there’s still much in the way of pre-production to even be sure of going into production, and more work to do on the script until I will be happy with it I’m sure. But for now, I’m very happy to have gotten this far. And for all of the support.
There’s life in the MR CLEAN short yet! We just found out that we’re an official selection of the SEVRED LIMBS FILM FESTIVAL 6: THROW ANOTHER HEAD ON THE BARBIE! which sounds like a perfect festival to enjoy a bit of gore among horror friends. And best of all it’s going to be free! Many thanks to Neal Jones who is running the festival.

That makes it the 24th official film festival selection for our multi award winning horror short MR CLEAN. Wow!
Also this week, IMPRINT was selected and placed in the semi-finals of the Chicago Horror Film Festival – the judging for that festival concludes at the end of September, so fingers crossed. That would be a great festival to travel to, if any of us can do that. But there will definitely be an online aspect to the festival. We can’t wait.

In other news, now that the 2nd vaccine dose is complete, I hope to tap the 5G super powers to help get BLÖDA written. I am 40 pages in… and counting…
We’ve just learned that IMPRINT has picked up its 9th award – from the 4th Dimension Independent Film Festival in Indonesia! Wow! We really thought, as the competition was tough, that we would not win. But we’re so very grateful and happy to do so.
This is great news – many thanks.
