I'm still reeling from the awesomeness that was FilmQuest 2015, what a perfect festival for our World Premiere! I wish I was able to spend all 10 days of the fest in awesome Sandy, Utah surrounded by filmmakers and film fans, but in the 2 days I spent there, I met some really great people and got o see some fantastic films.
The Smiling Man was nominated for a couple of awards, namely Best Makeup-FX and Best Supporting Actor. While we didn't get to take home the much coveted Cthulu award, it's good to be in the running, and even better still just for the opportunity to sit in the audience and watch as they gasp, cringe and jump at all the right moments when watching our short.
To top it off, The Smiling Man received an Honorable Mention in Best-Horror-Movies.com's FilmQuest 2015 recap. It's a great honor, seeing as with over 250 films in the fest, it's great to be remembered.

A great big thanks to everyone that came out to see our world premiere. We're just getting started, though. We've got some really BIG screenings coming up, and I can't wait to announce them!
