Sad news to share today as Del Weston who created and managed the Action on Film Festival had passed away after a long battle with COVID-19. Del was one of the biggest supporters of Vendetta Games when he accepted the film to AOF in Las Vegas back in 2018. While my memories of Del were mostly short but positive moments, the one that stands out most was when he watched my back after another distributor offered to pick up our film. Not only did he warn me against them but he went as far as reaching out to a better contact he trusted. That showed how big his heart was with struggling filmmakers. Vegas will never be the same without him. Our thoughts are with his family at this difficult time.
For those of you who haven’t heard, our music video “Sangria” was selected to take part in this month’s edition of the LA-based FLICKFAIR On Demand Film Festival. I’m reaching out because they are having a competition where you can vote in multiple categories including “Best Music Video”. If anyone would like to help Milan and I win the award, all you have to do is register for a pass at https://flickfair.vhx.tv/. Then you’ll be given a Voter Identification Number (VIN) which you have to put in when you go vote here: https://flickfair.com/vote/. Then follow the prompts before you get to the “Best Music Video” section. You can also vote for me for “Best Director” too! 🙂
The music video for Milan Lazistan’s song “Sangria” off the Music at Midnight album was chosen to be a part of FlickFair, Based out of Los Angeles, CA!!!

The Wild West Film Festival in Vacaville, CA just announced their 2020 winners today and American Gunslingers WON its 3rd Best Trailer award! Though the festival itself couldn’t hold an in-person event due to COVID and the California wildfires, we’re still honored to be recognized once again and hope to get the completed project shown there in the future. Check out all the results at wildwestfilmfestival.com and be sure to support our newly launched Kickstarter campaign: http://kck.st/33QWGQ7
Though we didn’t get to win the trailer award at Long Island International Film Expo, it was very nice for AMERICAN GUNSLINGERS be recognized for HONORABLE MENTION in the category. Any recognition for our work is always a blessing and another step towards progress. But a huge congrats is in order to our screenwriter Drew Henriksen for his award win at this festival for his script A BROKEN CHRISTMAS!
