‘How Not to Make a Horror Movie’ Debuts at Horror-on-Sea

Had a great weekend at Horror-on-Sea, a festival that we’ve supported since day one. It’s fantastic to see it going from strength to strength. Every year, there are fewer and fewer empty chairs (both in the large room where we tend to do the live shows and in the main auditorium), and the atmosphere is upbeat, buzzy and engaged.

Didn’t catch as many of the films as I’d intended to (partly due to an outbreak of chicken pox in the family suddenly throwing childcare plans into disarray), but at least this year I managed to get to my own show on time…

I really love doing shows like this. We’ve filmed this one, and hope to get it online before too long. This one features pre-recorded video contributions from an assortment of other independent horror filmmakers (and we were lucky enough to have at least couple in the audience, too, in the form of MJ Dixon and Dani Thompson)

The new show goes through an A to Z of different nightmares that might be faced by indie horror filmmakers, covering everything from dodgy small print in contracts through to appalling weather. It lasts about an hour and a half, and if you’re interested in booking the talk for a film festival, university event or children’s party (ok, probably not the children’s party) then feel free to get in touch via Jinx Media’s Facebook or my own Twitter account.
