“The Tell-Tale Heart – a musicabre” wins a SOFIE Award

The Short Film Awards, AKA the SOFIE Awards, were held last night. Here’s the YouTube video of the complete event:

It was an elaborately produced virtual event full of filmmaker testimonials and film clips. I created a filmmaker testimonial and three clips for the event too, as requested, and will share those below.

The Tell-Tale Heart – a musicabre” was nominated for three SOFIE Awards, Best Long Short Film, Outstanding Technical Work and Outstanding Styling.

The evening began with clips from all the nominated short films. “The Tell-Tale Heart – a musicabre’s” sneak peak comes in at the 57 second mark:

The Filmmaker testimonials followed. You can find mine at the 48 minute mark, or watch it below:

The award for Outstanding Technical Work was the first to be announced, after the testimonials had aired and after M.C. Rico E. Anderson’s opening bit (starting at the 1:14 hour mark). The nomination clip I edited for the award presentation was shown at the 1:26 hour mark:

“The Tell-Tale Heart – a musicabre” won, to my visible surprise, as you can see if you watch the YouTube video at the top of this post, starting at 1:30:30.

(I didn’t mean to tease Rico about stumbling over Stolis Hadjicharalambous’ name, but hoped to show some empathy for him being asked to sightread what is undoubtedly an eyeful and a mouthful. But I’m afraid that may have not come across while I was still on the air. Anyway, I told him so in the Zoom chat, but it was too late. A variety of interesting names would trip him up again and again. And even after getting my name right at first, he would skip past the “k” during the next award presentation.

I’m sorry, Rico, for jinxing you. 😉 )

The award for Outstanding Styling was next, at 1:32. We didn’t win that one, but here is its 30 second nomination clip:

The award for Best Long Short Film was one of the last to be announced, around the 3:22 mark. We didn’t win, but here is the nomination clip:

Thank you, Short Film Awards for the honoring “The Tell-Tale Heart – a musicabre” with three nominations and the award for Outstabding Technical Work, which I share with our cinematographer Jason Chua, our editor Stolis Hadjicharalambous, our Sound Mixer Todd Maki and VFX/Colorist Austin Lepri.
