‘The Stay’ is in official selection at Starburst International Film Festival 2017

UPDATE: The Starburst International Film Festival has been rescheduled by the organisers for 2018. More details when we have them!

#TheStayMovie Starburst International Film Festival

Thrilled to announce that award winning short film ‘The Stay’ is in official selection at Starburst International Film Festival 2017.

Starburst Magazine says, “The Stay (Directed by Frazer Lee who wrote the screenplay for Panic Button), shows us a nightmarish holiday for one lone female. Broodingly creepy, this short is very much in the tradition of classic TV show Tales of the Unexpected.”

The Starburst International Film Festival takes place in Manchester, UK across the Bank Holiday weekend August 25th-27th. Tickets are on sale now, and further details about the fantastic line-up are at the festival’s official site.

Check out a trailer for ‘The Stay’ (starring Daniela Finley) below.

#TheStayMovie wins Best Story Award at Things2Fear Film Fest USA!


Not so long ago, in a little cottage in the Cotswolds, I worked with some amazing people on my latest short film, The Stay. Our mission statement was to keep it simple, to keep it ‘do-able’. And so, our tale was about a character, a location, and a spooky “what if?” scenario.

With the support of our producers and crowdfunders (and many other supporters who gave of their time, skills and enthusiasm to help bring the project to the screen) The Stay had its World Premiere at the 25th Anniversary World Horror Con, in Atlanta USA. And the movie has been playing at film festivals ever since, picking up the Best Atmosphere Award at last year’s Independent Horror Movie Awards, along with nominations for Best Music and Best Original Concept.

Now (drum roll please…) I’m delighted to announce that The Stay has won another award!

My thanks to Festival Director Dionne Jackson and all at the Things2Fear Film Fest for including The Stay in Official Selection, and for awarding the film the brilliant accolade of ‘Best Story’. And I’d like to congratulate all the selected filmmakers, awards nominees and winners on their work – you can see the full list of 2016 award winners, and learn more about the festival here.
