A film based on Oakamoor’s fabled chained oak has won yet another award. “Legend of the Chained Oak” written by Staffordshire based author Dan Weatherer was awarded “Best Short Film” at the Bram Stoker International Film Festival which took place in Whitby at the end of October.
“Naturally we are thrilled to have bagged another award. That is now an award from each of the festivals that I submitted the film to. I couldn’t ask for a better result,” said Dan of the received award.
This award came by way of a public vote, with festival goers able to select what they deemed to be the pick of the festival.
“As a writer, to be forever linked with an author such as Bram Stoker is a great honour. I am very proud of what we have all achieved. I’d like to thank everyone that took the time to watch our film and vote for us.”
The film is scheduled to be made available for free on December 1st on http://www.fatherdarkness.co.uk which is Dan’s website.
“I’d like to take this opportunity to thank both Dean Maynard , Mark Mooney and the entire cast and crew for their work on this project. The film will shortly be made available to all for free, it is only fair that their hard work should be seen by as large an audience as possible.”
The film cost a total of £500 to make and was shot over the course of three days in September 2013. The short scooped “Best Horror” at the Portobello Film Festival and “Best UK Short” a the Stoke Film Festival earlier this year.
