New ident for Arrow Video FrightFest 2020 – ‘Screen’ – now on YouTube

Hard to believe a year has zipped by since we released #FFIDENT20, but it has. Though James Moran and I swore it would be our last Turn Off Your Bloody Phone ident for Arrow Video FrightFest, we changed our minds and did a surprise ident this year in lockdown, on incredibly limited resources, to celebrate the Digital Edition of FrightFest this August and help make things feel a little bit more normal.

Turn Off Your Bloody Phone: Screen features contributions from Mark Kermode, Emily Booth, Corin Hardy, Nicholas Vince, Matthias Hoene and devoted FrightFest supporters.

Written & directed by James and I, it screened before the world premieres of There’s No Such Thing As Vampires and I Am Lisa at FrightFest on 28th August, but is now available online for free on YouTube.

Thank you to FrightFest for still running a festival this summer, albeit digitally. It’s horror Christmas and we cherish the festival organisers’ efforts.

Massive Blood Drive PSA released! Check out my ‘Bloody Nurse’ performance!

This year’s Massive Blood Drive PSA by Jen Soska and Sylvia Soska (Twisted Twin Productions) has been unleashed! And it’s AWESOME! And us Bloody Nurses (Lucy Clements, Jessica Messenger and I) are featured and on hand to help persuade you to donate blood.

The PSA is an annual video as part of Women in Horror Month, celebrating female talent in horror, and aims to encourage people to donate blood and help save lives – after all, it’s in you to give! The incredible Soska Sisters invite filmmakers from across the globe to participate and in the PSA and cherry pick the best content for a staggering compilation. This year it’s a music video to a song called ‘Blood’ by Kevin James Maher of Fake Shark.

Our Bloody Nurses segment was directed by Damon Rickard. I was really chuffed to be cast, and the team, including DoP Jack Ayers, Make up artist Hannah Lomas and on-set photographer, Mike Shawcross, did a fantastic job.

The PSA features great contributions from some super cool, super hot talent – all are listed in the YouTube credits. There are so, so many that it didn’t seem fair to just mention part of the credits here.

The full Bloody Nurses video has now also been released!  There is also an exclusive version with a special voice over that will be screened at Horror Channel FrightFest in Glasgow later this month.


I had great fun shooting this. It was an epic team and who doesn’t love playing nurse for the day, getting covered in fake blood and playing with weapons and organs to raise awareness for a great cause? Exactly. Enjoy!
