Slaughtered Bird Films’ horror short film, BURN, nabs festival awards!
We don’t like to blow our own trumpets here at The Slaughtered Bird but, y’know, FUCK IT – we’re damn proud of our debut film production, BURN, created in collaboration with Dragon Egg Media!
Since post-production finished last year, our 15-minute short has received numerous excellent reviews, been busy finding its feet on the festival circuit and gratefully receiving many Official Selection laurels from around the world, and now it’s picked up its first award… or three!
We’re honoured to have won Best Short Film at the Macoproject Online Film Festival 2017, Best Short Film at Popcorn Horror’s brilliant Glasgow Horror Festival 2017, where Burn writer Chris Barnes was in attendance, and Best Horror Short Film at the mighty Shriekfest, Hollywood, where director Judson Vaughan was personally presented with the much-coveted handmade award, pictured below, by the wonderful Denise Gossett! (You can also listen to Denise’s Shriekfest Radio interview with Judson right HERE!)
Scheduled to play at many more festivals in the near future, Burn tells the story of Peter and Louise – two (of many) people gripped by media-induced fear during a nationwide manhunt. When their son Charlie is born, the pair must find a way of raising him amid continuing public hysteria and incomprehensible personal tragedy.
Praise for Burn:
Ain’t It Cool News
“A clever and wicked little short… extremely powerful and unexpected.”
“An unrelenting hook, digging itself in and forcing you to pay attention… a great watch”
