Yet more festival news to share – we’re so very grateful for such kind treatment from festivals, especially as we have had a few more rejections too.

Firstly, the dark horror short screenplay for IMPRINT has been officially selected to the Swedish International Film Festival (SIFF)! That’s great news, as it’s the 25th selection! and it is the same festival that has already selected and bestowed awards upon MR CLEAN and COMFORT HIM 60. So fingers crossed that this script makes it further into the competition. And congrats to the other selections! We hope to meet you all at the screening in Arvika, Sweden.

COMFORT HIM has also been put through to the finals of the 4th Dimension Independent Film Festival in the Best Experimental Film category. That’s also great news, because MR CLEAN and IMPRINT also won awards at this festival and it’s the 23rd festival selection. So fingers crossed that this film also gets screened live in Indonesia / makes it through to the winning selection. Congrats to the other finalists!

The live event screening in Indonesia is from 29th to 31st October 2021, from 1pm – 3pm and here’s the link – https://fb.me/e/ZH77EemC?ti=wa

IMPRINT news

It’s been a busy week, so apologies if I’m a little late in announcing a few things. But IMPRINT has done well of late. Although it didn’t make it through to the semis of the outstanding screenplays competition, it did make it through to the semis of the Vancouver Horror Show (The VHS), and is now a finalist at the Chicago Horror Film Festival and FREAK SHOW Horror Film Festival.

Only awards will remain on the poster. There’s 11 award laurels. Will there be another one before the month is out? before Halloween?… who knows 🙂

Find out more about IMPRINT. Or join the online portion of the Chicago Horror Film Festival to read the screenplay.

A couple of things happened for our dark comedy microshort COMFORT HIM – which are very cool. Firstly COMFORT HIM is an official selection of the 4th Dimension Independent Film Festival in Indonesia – which you may remember, is the same festival that selected and gave awards to MR CLEAN and IMPRINT – so fingers crossed there. And congrats to the other official selections.

And then this morning, I noticed that a scream queen and horror movie legend Kelli Maroney (of NIGHT OF THE COMET and CHOPPING MALL fame) liked our film on Twitter. Very cool indeed.

I know it’s a small item in the scheme of things. But the whole idea was to get the short out there, get it seen and for it to get so many likes and views has been very rewarding. And so to get it liked by someone very well known and someone who you’ve spent many hours watching their work, is very cool indeed.

Congrats to the team! You’re awesome. Couldn’t have done it without you.

Also, why celebrate such things? Because yesterday was plagued by technical issues that sucked my available time. And this whole week has been one huge time suck. Such times are very demotivating. So to get a small ‘W’ here and there, is enough to keep one going for a little longer. Because each little ‘w’ is one reminder that someone out there cares for what you’re doing and is enough to put a bit more fuel in the tank to resume your quest and create another thing. One step closer to potentially achieving that goal…

MR CLEAN picks up an award and IMPRINT is a semi-finalist

This morning, I woke up – after a much appreciated good night of sleep – to the news that our unproduced dark horror short script for IMPRINT has been selected and put through to the semi-finals of the Sell Your Screenplay Six-Figure Screenplay contest. That was a lovely surprise, as I’d actually forgotten about submitting. And that’s 23 selections so far.

You can also read the list of semi-finalists here: Announcement

That was pretty cool. Definitely.

But then… before I even had the chance to announce that, and the fact that it had just been confirmed as an official selection at another fest, we then learned that MR CLEAN had picked up it’s 13th award, for ‘Best Short Film’ at the Red Moon Film Festival. That was most unexpected and very much appreciated.

It’s been a very good week and we’re extremely grateful. Thank you very much.

IMPRINT is a quarter finalist

I just learned that the short screenplay for IMPRINT is a quarter finalist of Outstanding Screenplays competition. That’s great news that it was selected and made it through to the first stage. Congrats to the other entrants!

In other IMPRINT related news, I’ve been putting together a pitch to show potential collaborators / investors what could be in store for this short film – regards to other related products and formats that could also work to expand on the world created for the short. So fingers crossed that it goes down well.
