IMPRINT wins its 10th award, at the first year of the Indie Movies Spark Film Festival in Utrecht, Netherlands. I can’t believe that the short horror script has done so well and I am very grateful.
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’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.
My dark horror short screenplay IMPRINT has been selected and made it through to the quarter finals of the Golden Screenplay Competition – making it into the top 9% and beating GAS! – which sadly didn’t make it through, despite glowing feedback on the script. This makes 12 festival selections now. Let’s hope it makes it through to the next stages of competition.
Today I learned that IMPRINT, the short horror script, is a finalist and had been placed in the top 7 short scripts of the Portland Screenplay Awards. It was in top 30% of 1000 scripts. And also, as this was a horror screenplay being judged against a diverse range of genres, and horror not being everyone’s cup of tea, I’ll that as an almost-won.
