Also, SVEN GUNNAR – the short film – has been selected to two film festivals: to the Osaka International Film Festival Japan and to Kinosmena Short Film Festival in Belarus. This is great news, especially as I am 58 pages into writing the feature film version!
The short script for IMPRINT now has its 4th official festival selection, in a week where we also received some very positive but also confusing feedback from another prestigious screenplay festival (where the reader clearly didn’t seem to pick up on some obvious plot elements that other festivals had no issues with) the film has now been selected and also made a Finalist in the Hollywood Blood Horror Festival (where COMFORT HIM won Best Horror). This is great news for a short that I was doubting was too dark for most festivals.
Ironically it comes on the same day where MR CLEAN was rejected from another fest, due to high competition. So it’s all swings and roundabouts.
But this week, good progress has been made on a new feature film script. We’re officially 15 pages in writing SVEN GUNNAR the feature. 🙂
And IMPRINT, an old script that I have completely reworked, won Best Short Script. It’s a brutal, dark short film that is my tribute to those horror fans that would chase down the most extreme cuts of the nastiest films and what becomes of one horror fan when he comes into possession of a very unique tape. I decided to put it into festivals, to see if there’s any interest – after two previous attempts at producing it fell through.
