Best Actor and Actress Wins for "By Her Hand, She Draws You Down"
At the Oklahoma Horror Film Festival last weekend, Zoe Daelman Chlanda won Best Actress and Jerry Murdock won Best Actor for their roles as Cath and Joe in the film adaptation of my story "By Her Hand, She Draws You Down." Congratulations to both, and a thanks from me for the wonderful jobs they both did in bringing the characters to the screen. Well deserved wins! Director Anthony Sumner was also nominated for Best Director and Best Editing, and the movie for Best Film, and imo, should have won them all. He did a fantastic job on the film, and I'm very proud to be associated with this movie. The movie has several more upcoming screenings across the US at various film festivals, including the latest addition – the ninth annual Spooky Movie Film Festival in Washington, DC, Oct 21-25. I have the complete list of the movie's festival appearances, plus lots of other info on the film on my dedicated "By Her Hand" page. You can help with getting this film into one particular festival. I mentioned the movie trailer contest for the New Orleans' Vampire Film Fest in an earlier blog post. This festival picks its entries based on the votes that trailers for the candidate movies receive. Check out the link to the trailers in my blog, and if you like the one for "By Her Hand...", please vote for it (you have to sign in to your YouTube or Google account in order to vote). And congratulations again to Zoe and Jerry!
