A major congrats to our brand journalism teammates, Robert Leitch and Jerred Ziegler, for their big wins in the Mid Ohio Filmmakers Association "3 Weeks of Terror" Film Festival! Their film, "What's In the Dark", won three "best of" awards: Best Director (Robert), Best Editor (Jerred) and, last but certainly not least, Best Film.
The competition allowed three weeks for teams to make a horror film with some rules to follow. This year around two dozen teams competed. The judges were from movie-making capital, Los Angeles!
Their organization that created "What's In the Dark" is Short Knight Films, an independent film group that Robert formed. He is usually the main director of the films, while Jerred works as a videographer and editor.
The film takes place behind the scenes during a redneck reality TV show, "Hillbilly Hell Creatures", when something goes terribly wrong in the woods. Enjoy the award-winning short film below!
