WOMEN IN HORROR 


Women In Horror Month aims to showcase and carve

 out a space for women in the horror genre.

 Whether this be behind the scenes, writing, directing,

 producing or on-screen badass-ery.

 A true celebration of everything bloody and brilliant.

 During the month of February, here at Screenqueens

 we’re going to be showing off masses of female talent

 in our showcase, this could be anything from

 amateur experimental shorts to festival circulating 

features so keep your eyes peeled.

Tracy has been chosen to be involved in 

Women Of Horror Showcase Part 6.

Thanks to Chloe for letting her be a part

 of your showcase.



 

WANNA BE IN A MOVIE!

 


We invited people to send in a little video or selfie

 of themselves doing or saying anything for a special

 scene in the film that will all be explained in the

 finished project, thanks to everyone who got involved.

 

 GRAHAM HUMPHREYS


I sent an email to a british poster artist 
named Graham Humphreys about creating 
a poster/artwork for our first feature film and
 to be honest I did not expect a quick reply...well 
how wrong was I he replied the same
 week and he was willing to help us out with 
an original piece, we had a look at the budget
 and was able to afford it.
I cannot believe the person who created
 The Evil Dead and A Nightmare On Elm Street posters
 all those years ago did our poster, lets hope we can
 make a film good enough to coincide with the 
feeling and quality of Graham's poster even
 Mr. Sunshine thinks the poster rocks!
