Contest Alert: Austin Film Festival

Got my annual call for entries from the Austin Film Festival the other day. Their screenplay competition has an impeccable reputation and industry awareness, but my werewolf script didn’t fare too well when I entered a few years back so I usually pass. I know, I know, it’s all subjective but [whine] that same script made the finals and semi-finals of reputable genre contests and received two positive reads from Nicholl!![/whine] I’ve been reluctant to take another shot... until now.

“Due to an increasing demand by our industry judges, we’ve created a new horror award category for the Screenplay Competition. This category is open to any feature horror script including dark suspense, thriller, sci-fi and macabre themes.”

Austin has always had a genre category, but I like the new emphasis on horror. Not sure if my odds will be any better though.  Check out the details here.

Bad Days Made Better

Monday 2/25/2013 Monday was a crappy day at work. Worst I’ve had in awhile, when you figure in that I worked all weekend. It was so busy, I had to skip the gym at lunch time! My first reaction was ‘that sucks, guess I have to go lift on Tuesday instead!’ But then, I realized [...]

Book Review: The Dracula Archives by Raymond Rudorff

The Dracula Archives was first published in 1971 and although it is an interesting and well-written novel, it seems to have escaped the notice of many fans of vampire fiction, which is a pity because the book has much to offer...
