More wonderful news for The End! After having won the Limelight Film Awards ‘Best Horror’, the film was selected for the Phoenix Film Festival (Leicester, England) and also for the OshKosh Horror Film Festival in Wisconsin, USA.
We also just received the news that The End has been selected for the British Horror Film Festival to be held in Leicester Square, London, England this October. The Brilliant crew at We Are Heroes Films have remastered the sound for this prestigious event and also put together this trailer….http://vimeo.com/106965525
A couple of days ago I got the fabulous news from Film Director, Raj Pathak (We are Heroes Films), that we’ve been nominated for an award at the Limelight Film Awards, due to be held on June 9th! It’s a highly prestigious event to be held in the Troxy, a beautiful Art Deco venue in East London.
Not surprisingly we’re nominated in the Horror category – and if we go through and win ‘Film of the Night’ then we’ll get a massive £10,000 production budget – as you can imagine I’m hoping this might go towards making the feature length version! It’s especially good timing as I’ve just submitted the completed script to We Are Heroes.
Even if we don’t win, the nomination alone is exciting and has only been made possible by the combination of such wonderful talents as Crash Taylor, Raj Pathak and N-FX special effects. Not to mention the amazing crew and actors – especially Shelley Draper, who really brought all the emotion of her character off the paper and onto the screen.
Although I’m not able to be there, I’m delighted to promote the sequel to ‘Don’t Go In the Basement’ event. A free night of shorts from Nottingham and the surrounding areas. No theme this time, so it’ll be a proper mixed bag. There will be music video’s, live action shorts, animations and other surprises. You will laugh, you will cry and naturally, given our obsession with horror, there will be some scares along the way.
My zombie short The End will be screening there. (I’m busy writing the prequel so no rest for the wicked!)
Doors at 7.00pm, first film starts at 7.30pm prompt.
A story by a Sara Roberts, a wonderful young writer, recently published on Hackney Writers site…
“Out back late”. The note was pinned to the fridge with the plastic magnet they got in Vegas, with glitter sparkles trapped inside. Amanda sighed and heaved the bags of shopping off the floor onto the Formica table with its mysterious patterns of coffee stains like corn circles….Found..
Na No Wri Mo, is a great excuse to get out there and just write – the aim, to churn out a novel, to hit word count targets. It’s a great movement, pulling writers, ex writers and new writers out of their malaise, smashing their writers block and fostering creativity.
But it’s not for everyone. You may not want to write a novel, it might be poetry or script writing that captures your mood. Or it might be that you’d prefer not to churn out X number of words every day, that you want to work on the quality of your work.
So, the lovely, supportive group that is Cafe Aphra, have started their own writing challenge for November. You can set the challenge yourself, knowing others are doing just the same. So, if you need a bit of support or want to declare you November writing goal, check in at Cafe Aphra.
