The foul-mouthed, felt-mouthed little puppet is now available on iTunes in the US and Europe thanks to Shorts International! Connie is just a snip at only $2.99 or £1.99 respectively – so fill your stockings this festive season.
Connie has had an incredible journey since the shoot in May 2016, playing festivals globally, including awards qualifiers, scooping awards, receiving great reviews and entertaining audiences we could only have dreamed of. Sharing it with a whole new audience is something else, so we’re proud to be working with Shorts International.
We’ve agreed a licensing deal with Shorts International to broadcast ConnieandCrazy For Youon ShortsTV in North America, Europe and South Asia for five years from late 2018. Both films will also shortly be added to the ShortsTV online stores on Amazon (UK, USA and Germany) and iTunes (in over 80 countries) for purchase.
We’re excited to be working with Shorts International as ShortsTV is the world’s first 24/7 HD TV channel dedicated to shorts, and currently available to approximately 25 million homes worldwide. We’re thrilled that our short films will reach such a wide audience beyond the film festival circuit.
Blood Shedhad its World Premiere at Horror Channel Frightfest on 27th August and was a great success! It was a joy to see so many happy, shed-fancying, Kickstarter supporters at the screening at the Prince Charles Cinema in Leicester Square, London.
We were really moved by the support, and overjoyed at the laughs and cheers that filled the cinema screen. Thanks so much to all who attended.
We’ve also had a flurry of great reviewsfollowing the screening! Here are a couple of links and extracts:
“Loaded with laughs and gore to satisfy in this very niche sub-genre you never knew you needed.”
Blood Shed has been selected for the Wimbledon International Short Film Festival 2017, which takes place in October. We’re one of just fourteen shorts selected from across the globe. This is one of the UK’s top ten short film festivals (Metro), so we’re thrilled to be included, but we’re also nominated for the coveted Best London Filmmaker award, and also eligible for the Best Short Film and Audience awards.
And hot off the press, we’ve just heard the film has been selected for the Kerry Film Festival in Ireland, also in October. This is a long-running festival supported and endorsed by luminaries such as Paul Greengrass, Finola Dwyer, Jeremy Irons, Liam Neeson, Maureen O’Hara, John Moore and Mark Bomback. A great festival for our Irish Premiere!
We have more festival announcements coming up that we can’t reveal just yet, but all will be listed on the Blood Shedscreenings page on the official website.
It looks like the shed will be very busy over the coming months – maybe she needs a secretary…
