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.
And soon I shall have news of two short film projects that Darwin Reina and I are considering. And hopefully in the not too distant future we can announce some details about a new script which has been doing the rounds. And one of these scripts was written with a new plotting / planning process that I’ve been using and it’s really paid off for the short films, to enhance them from a structural and tonal perspective. Let me know if anyone wants to find out more about that?
I’m also playing around with a new Storyboarding app on the iPad and loving the ease of drawing. And the ability to create Animatics from it – it’s called Spielreel. This was just a test to see if I could figure out the interface. But It may or may not be from an upcoming short film…. 😉
MR CLEAN has been selected to it’s first festival in Mexico, as an Official Selection at the Stuff MX Film Festival This is brilliant! And we’re very grateful! Especially as COMFORT HIM is currently in a festival in Mexico. Also this marks the 18th festival selection now for our short film. We’ve done far better than I could ever have hoped. 🙂
The Stuff MX Film Festival takes place in January 2021. So it will be a while before it gets exhibited there. But fingers crossed all the same!
First, it had the Unrestricted View Horror Film Festival showing. And it was really good to see it in the festival and I definitely think it held its own. However, although it was an award nominee in the Best Foreign Short category, it didn’t win. But the winners definitely deserved it. I really enjoyed the festival, and I was able to see every film – although perhaps it could have done with a bit more social / community chat facilities during the fest, for networking and finding out how audiences were finding the films? But many thanks to Tony and James for putting on such a great fest. And congrats to all the films that participated. Would definitely participate again.
But weirdly, that same day, we found out that MR CLEAN had won the Best Special Effects category at the Night of the Horror Festival 2020 in Belgium. Wow! Nice. That was a lovely surprise! it’s just a shame that we didn’t get to be there in person due to the virus.
And now, this week it is the turn of COMFORT HIM to be in the limelight, as it is taking part in the Morbido Fest. And then the European Short Film Festival. So busy times ahead. Wish us luck!
