More festival news!

It's officially official! My newest short film, A Hammer Fell in Jerusalem: and be at rest will be making its World Premiere during BleedFest's June festival! I made the film as an exercise, I had just gotten some new equipment and didn't want to start making World Collision's "Sine" cold. I was so happy with the results that I decided to throw it out there just to see what happens. This film takes place a few years before the events of A Hammer Fell in Jerusalem: Anathema, but I don't feel that one needs to have seen Anathema to watch and be at rest. I'll be uploading the short to late next month.

The main attraction for June, however, is the West Coast premiere of I Am Nancy, directed by Arlene Marechal and Heather Langenkamp! Yes, one of my films will be in the same festival as a film featuring my favourite actress! I am a flailing ball of squee over here!

Also appearing will be filmmaker Lucky McKee (Masters of Horror episode "Sick Girl", May, The Woods, The Woman, etc, etc, etc) who will be receiving the Inanna Partnership Award!

This month's charity is Impact Personal Safety!

If you can, please donate to BleedFest's IndieGoGo campaign. Festival directors Elisabeth and Brenda Fies don't charge entry fees and need help to cover the cost of the venue every month. They're two brilliant female directors trying to help out other female directors by showcasing and talking about their work! And they're two of the nicest people I've ever met! Whatever you can donate is appreciated and a huge help!

WMIFF's People Choice!

Hi everyone!

The music video I made for World Collision, "Sine," has been accepted by the World Music and Independent Film Festival and is in the running for a People's Choice award! "Essenger" came so close last year, we were in third or fourth place up against national acts like OK Go and Laether Strip. I really want to rock D.C.! Please go and vote for us on their website!

Here's the music video as a refresher:

At this festival last year, my video for "Essenger" was nominated for Best Cinematography and Best Alternative Rock.
