FROM BEYOND goes over Down Under
Just heard from the directors of A Night of Horror Short Film Festival in Sydney, Australia: FROM BEYOND won an award for Best Lovecraft Film! It's nice to be recognized for creating what others feel is a worthy adaptation of Lovecraft, who is notoriously difficult to translate to the screen. I experienced that difficulty intensely as I sweated over the script for five months. It was definitely worth it, as folks have been genuinely enthusiastic about FB's depiction of stop-mo creepy-crawlies from another dimension.
In other news, AMBERSONS 2 is just about done. The folks at SuperDeluxe really dug the rough cut and I've just handed over a 2nd pass incorporating some minimal changes. Thank god for outside eyes...after 6 weeks of animation I have no objectivity. Wish I could say more but you know, confidentiality and all...screen caps coming soon!
