Connie named one of iHorror’s scariest shorts of 2017!

2017 has been a busy year for the little puppet film. Connie is still making waves, winning awards and being booked for festivals. Completed in summer 2016, we’re thrilled that the little legless, felt-mouthed madam is still trucking.

In recent news, Connie has been included in iHorror’s list of scariest horror shorts of 2017! We’re chuffed to be included in this list, especially as the film walks the fine line of horror and comedy, and we’re glad that we can make people jump and chuckle. Big thanks to iHorror!

Who doesn’t find this little face just a bit creepy…

Connie nominated for Best Actress Award at HorrorHound Weekend Film Festival!

Though the team behind Connie are now hard at work on three forthcoming short films, Blood Shed, Hank: Portrait of a Serial Killer and TickTock, the little felt puppet that is Connie is still on the first leg of her film festival journey. It’s been an incredible six or seven months so far, and we’ve also had the wonderful news that Connie has not only been selected for the HorrorHound Weekend Film Festival in Ohio, US, we’re also nominated for the Best Actress award for our superb lead, Catrin Stewart!

This is wonderful recognition for Catrin’s work on the film. Catrin had to play both Connie and Dolly, often in the same scenes – not just vocally, but also ‘operating’ Connie for a large proportion of the film. This was a great mental and physical challenge, and one that Catrin pulled off with aplomb. She’s a tremendous talent and if anyone deserves recognition for the final product, it’s her.

HorrorHound is a great convention and film festival all in one, taking place 17th-19th March in Cincinnati. It’s CRAMMED to the ceiling with special guests, including Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Chandler Riggs, Tobin Bell, John Waters, Lloyd Kaufman… Team Connie is devastated to not be able to attend! But, you lucky people can get tickets HERE.

Connie is screening as part of the Late Night Laughs slot on the Saturday night (or technically early Sunday AM), before Space Babes from Outer Space. Check out their cute schedule! Congratulations to Jamie Hooper – a friend of Team Connie – whose short Unto Death, which is a real must-see, has also been selected for the Sunday.

Congratulations to all the HorrorHound nominees. It’s very stiff competition. This is our fifth award nomination. We’re currently also nominated for the iHorror Award for Best Short Film, which is announced at the end of the month, so March is shaping up to be super, smashing, great.

 

Connie nominated for an iHorror award!

2017 is shaping up to be quite a year for Connie. We’ve just had the news that the film is nominated for an iHorror award! The awards recognise excellence, hard work and determination in the horror genre.

The much coveted statue is poured from solid metal from the RS Owens company, whose clients include the Oscars and the Emmys, no less!

Previous iHorror award winners include It Follows, Ash vs Evil Dead, Creep, Insidious Chapter 3, Bruce Campbell, Mark Duplass and Melissa McBride! So we’re thrilled to be nominated!

There’ll be more details to follow soon, but the whole team behind Connie is keeping all fingers, toes and other appendages crossed. It’s our fourth award nomination in just a few short months, and Connie would kill for a win. She needs some bling in her life.

A massive thanks to the iHorror team, judges and iHorror readers. We’re delighted!
