MR CLEAN’s 24th official selection

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!

IMPRINT and MAGIC IS MURDER fest news

It’s been a good week and I’m very happy to share that IMPRINT has won it’s 8th award and been selected to and has placed in its 16th festival, and MAGIC IS MURDER, has been selected to its second festival.

IMPRINT picked up an award for Best unproduced script at the Florida Shorts fest. It has also now been selected and is in the finals of the 4th Dimension Independent Film Festival in Indonesia, where there is stiff competition, but the judging won’t conclude until the end of July.

The feature comedy horror script for MAGIC IS MURDER has been selected to it’s second film festival at Cult movies International Film Festival. There is some exciting news around casting (and hopefully some other news) which we hope to be able to share soon. But I’m very happy that this script that I co-wrote with Simon O’Kill is also doing well in its’ festival run.

Awards time – IMPRINT and MR CLEAN

IMPRINT picked up two awards this week and MR CLEAN picked up another – thanks to the Cairo Indie Short Festival and Rotterdam Independent Film Festival. Awesome. And very much appreciated.

This means that MR CLEAN picks up its 9th award and IMPRINT now has 7 awards.

This is great news, and made up for a few more festival rejections this week.

A festival update and more

We’re very happy to announce that IMPRINT and MR CLEAN are both award nominees for the Rotterdam Independent Film Festival. And IMPRINT has also been selected by the UndergroundIndieFilmFestival. In fact we were lucky enough to enjoy some amazing films as part of that festival last night. You guys missed out if you didn’t attend.

We’re awaiting the results of the Rotterdam fest – which I think are announced June 20th. But congrats to the team behind PATRON which won “Best experimental film

Also, work on BLÖDA, the Pagan horror feature is going well. The main story beats are plotted. Now I’ve just got to finish off the character breakdown and write the damn thing. 😉 But I’ll be really happy to share the way I’ve been working on this, when it’s all done. Definitely have been enjoying a lot more mind-mapping and writing by hand, to get the creative juices flowing.

I’ve had some computer issues, one where I’ve needed to re-install my editing machine software, to fix a crash after installing a recent plugin. Got a little more work to do on that to free up some space on the drives too. But hopefully soon I can resume work on TUMBLE DYING again. Luckily, despite my system crashing, no data was lost. Just the time to fix it. But I definitely had a brown trouser moment when I first saw the black screen of death.

COMFORT HIM behind the scenes material

It’s been a while since we produced COMFORT HIM and now that the bulk of the festival run is done and key premiere’s have taken place, I thought it was time to finally release the planned BTS videos. There’s a deep production breakdown and three interviews to enjoy.
