Chris GrobanAnother Day

IndieFEST Film Awards
Short Film – Another Day is reminiscent of Twilight Zone productions. This carefully-crafted little film excels at character development and is a joy to watch. The protagonist enjoys an extra hidden day each week until a beautiful woman makes her appearance. Together they try to understand what’s happening and whether it’s just a dream.

Conmar Productions, Bad Blood…. The Hunger

IndieFEST Film Awards
eature Film & creativity/originality (color timing: Maria Janis) – Bad Blood is a crowd-pleasing, tingles-in-the-spine horror film with an outstanding plot and unusually vivid images. Colors have been enhanced frame-by-frame which adds to the beauty of the film and intensifies the action. The film has outstanding performances by Conrad Janis and Piper Laurie, as well as by several attractive young actors.

Ether Films – The Zandorsky Tapes

IndieFEST Film Awards

Feature Film – Zis a raw psychological thriller shot in a hauntingly realistic style. Set in modern-day California, the film follows the exploits of three young men who record their sexual conquests on video. It includes a vehement performance by actor Matt Prater who creates one of the most unforgettable characters in recent memory. The final moments are utterly terrifying.
