    I'm not trying to pimp or promote the movie here. Just wanted to share with my fellow fandom, because I'm pretty damn excited.

    My latest film, OVERTIME, Premiered at the International 2011 Fright Night Film Festival on Saturday, and was given 8 awards at the ceremony on Sunday! Hundreds of independent films from 8 different countries were submitted. We collectively walked out with
    Best of the Fest
    Best Action Movie
    Best Soundtrack (For Jason Paige)
    Best Cinematography (For D.P. Brian Cunningham)
    Film Maker of the Year (For writer/Director Matt Niehoff and cowriter/D.P. Brian Cunningham)
    Best Actress (For Sebrina Siegel)
    and I personally took home Best Actor and Best One Liner.

    On a side note...
    As I was leaving the stage with Best Actor in hand, JOHN CARPENTER (writer/director of Halloween, The thing, Escape from NY, Big Trouble in Little China, and other classics) took the stage to accept The Lifetime Achievement Award. As we passed, he shook my hand and congratulated me. For a life long horror film geek like me, that's pretty awesome.

    That is AWESOME, man!!! Is it online anywhere??

    Nice to talk to someone else in the business. I'm an actor. I did a Stephen King short last summer but it's still in post production. I've done a couple of indies, but mostly I do paid stage acting. Acting has been my job for the past few years though.

    Congratulations, this is really kick ass for you. Especially getting to meet Carpenter on his way out!! Incredibly awesome.

    Thank you!!

    No, The film makers are currently in negotiations with distributors. It won't be available to the public for probably another 6 months to a year.
    They'll likely take it around to more festivals in the meantime, though.

    I am very familiar with that game. A few of the things I was in are either doing that now, or did that in the past. Indie film is a hard road, but it's great to just get out there and do it!

    That's awesome, Mospeada! Very cool to meet another performer within the fandom. Are you on IMDb?

    It's a very quirky mixed genre film. If you're interested you can check out some of the goods on the movie here:
