Big UPS to both Natasha at Films and Things and JMount at Written in Blood for nominating me for the Dragon’s Loyalty Award (which oddly seems to have nothing to do with dragons which is a shame because I like dragons). Both are fab bloggers who are hella fun to read so go check them out!
Anyway…as with most things these days there are rules to receiving this, and they are:
- Display the Award Certificate on your website
- Announce your win with a post and link to whoever presented your award
- Present 15 awards to deserving bloggers
- Drop them a comment to tip them off after you’ve linked them in the post
- Post 7 interesting things about yourself.
So first, the 15 deserving bloggers:
Again, I’m going to go with my caveat of “If you want it, it’s yours”. Soooo many people hate getting tagged for these and I don’t want to be the one to make anyone cranky, lol. I think you are all awesome though and you all deserve ALL the awards (and ALL the monies, I might add). So congratulations, you are all ROCK STARS!! Or dragons. I suppose that’s more apt for this award…
Now for the best part; 7 interesting things about me!
Well….nah, I’m joshin’ ya. I’m not going to make y’all sit through 7 more intriguing, amazing and downright interesting facts about me. 😉 I think we all hear about me enough already on this blog. I guess if there’s anything you’re just dying to know you can ask away in the comments.
The director of Lord of Tears has been in contact with me and there’s quite a few things going on in the world of Owl Man. Read on below if you’re interested!
* Lord of Tears reached its first goal on Kickstarter – the new goal is £10k ($15k)! It seems you can also pre-order the dvd via Kickstarter as well so if interested, head on over!
* Lord of Tears has been accepted into the San Diego Comic Fest to be screened in October
* The kickstarter page features a new trailer for the film that has won some acclaim, being tweeted by Jim Parrack (True Blood) and Barbara Crampton (Re-Animator, From Beyond) Elizabeth Fies (The Commune) and Signe Olynyk (Below Zero)
* There’s a viral style video of the Owlman stalking teenagers on Omegle/chat roulette (I’m gonna check this out! Ha!)

It is a blah, rainy day here (I didn’t even get out of bed till an hour ago that’s how blah it is) so when I’m done with work, I’ll be cuddled with my netbook watching movies and reading blogs so see y’all later!
As some of you are aware, there’s a new film that’s hitting this year – very indie and looking pretty wicked cool – called Lord of Tears. They’ve just released their latest trailer and announced the beginning of pre-orders so I thought I’d give them shout out here (y’all know how I love my indie horror! Damn the man, save the Empire!!).
Lord of Tears is a startling, psychological, supernatural thriller set against the ominous backdrop of a cursed highland estate. The film features the voice of David Schofield (Gladiator, Pirates of the Caribbean) Lexy Hulme and Euan Douglas.
Lord of Tears tells the story of James Findlay, a school teacher plagued by recurring nightmares of a mysterious and unsettling entity. Suspecting that his visions are linked to a dark incident in his past, James returns to his childhood home, a notorious mansion in the Scottish Highlands, where he uncovers the disturbing truth behind his dreams, and must fight to survive the brutal consequences of his curiosity…
I also had a quick chat with director Lawrie Brewster and he had this to say about Lord of Tears:
Lord of Tears is a British Chiller in the classic tradition of films such as The Wickerman, The Innocents and The Haunting. Our story concerns a man trapped in a crumbling mansion, stalked by Owl Headed monster in the misty highlands of Scotland, on a mission to piece together a childhood broken apart by repressed memory and dark secrets. It takes inspiration from classic mythology, ancient history and mordern legends such as those of – Slender Man!
The script is written by Sarah Daly (the music artist Metaphorest, and cousin of Kate Bush), stars David Schofield (of Pirates of the Caribbean, Gladiator) and is directed by myself whose (past collaborations with Sarah Daly) has included works with Joseph Gordon Levitt and Channing Tatum, that have featured at Sundance and SXSW.
*Yep, he totally had me at Joseph Gordon Levitt. *sighs* JGL is so brilliant. And cute. And gives off this aura of nice…and well, that’s enough of the JGL love. Sorry, back on track. ;)*
Anyway, give the trailer a looksie and if you feel so inclined check out the Lord of Tears Kickstarter page. Also available for your viewing pleasure? The Lord of Tears Tumblr page, the Lord of Tears Facebook page, and their IMDB page (as someone who works in online marketing and social media, the fact that these guys have ALL the bases covered here gives me a major happy!!). And check out some cool stills below!
