Break heads to the Seattle True Independent Film Festival

Good news to share with you all. Break has been accepted into the Seattle True Independent Film Festival (STIFF) and will be screening this June. More updates to come as the details roll in, but we're pretty excited to share the movie with the rest of the Northwest. Check out the festival's site for more information: http://www.trueindependent.org/.

In other news, Chris Hallock of All Things Horror had some nice things to say about Break. Here are a couple snippets:

"Often feeling like a modern Argento piece with masterful use of color to enhance the mood."

"A colorful piece of DIY chaos."

If you'd like to check out the whole review, click here.

On a final note, we've been experimenting with posters for Break and have uploaded a couple to the Media page. Some are simple, others are not.

Break Enters the Man-Cave!

The always hilarious and never tame Geofree Capodanno of The Man-Cave blog has generously invited us over to his dark dwelling to talk about Break. We had a lot of fun with this interview, as Geof is an awesome dude. Learn some interesting facts about the production and enjoy the lighter moments, as we joke about everything from Limp Bizkit to WWE wrestlers.

Check out the interview here: The Man-Cave Interview: Becky and Nick Sayers of the film Break. Enjoy!

The Results Are In

Many screeners are out and many critics have their eyes on Break. The reviews are slowly trickling in and more will be sure to come. For now, here are some highlights from the reviews.

 “It succeeds over most other Horror films of its size.”
          -Carl Manes, I Like Horror Movies

“Nick and Becky Sayers are talented people who…made an indie effort worth noticing & encouraging. I truly hope they get a chance to do some more projects and I'd love to see what else they come up with.”      
     -Jake Manders, The Cheap Bin

“From script to post production, the Sayers put blood, sweat and more blood into Break. The film is DIY filmmaking at its most raw." 
            -Jeff Atencio, the jaded viewer

“Interesting, bold and quite surprising for a film of such low production cost.
            -Matt House, Chuck Norris Ate My Baby

To Be Reviewed

The first batch of screeners are out and we are anxiously awaiting the first reviews for Break. Keep an eye out around the blogosphere for reviews from some terrific horror bloggers. If you're interested in obtaining a screener for review, simply e-mail us at blackmesafilms@gmail.com. 

We've also been browsing the festival selection. Unfortunately, most horror film festivals don't have their submission period up yet. Typically, they occur in the fall (especially October). The timing is a little off, but we'll be shooting arrows at some of the big name festivals just for fun. If only film festivals were cheaper...

Screeners Coming Soon

Getting mailing lists together for the first send-off of Break to cast, crew, and reviewers (bloggers mostly). We are excited to get some feedback from a variety of people, while a little nervous at the same time. It always brings a certain amount of anxiety to put work out there to be judged. Still, positive excitement outweighs nervousness.

Festival screeners will certainly come next. However, festivals are costly, so we have to be a little picky where we send it at this point. If anyone has suggestions, we'd loved to hear them.
