I’m happy to announce that Quick Shop’s film festival acceptance count has finally hit double digits! Quick Shop was recently accepted into the Roslyn Film Festival in Roslyn, PA.
This is a one-night only event on Saturday, March 31st starting at 7:00 PM. I will be there and it would be great to have anyone else there to support us. Hopefully I’ll see you there!
You can check out the Festivals page for all of Quick Shop’s film festival acceptances.
I recently discovered that Quick Shop made Pulpmovie.com’s list of “most memorable independent films of 2011”. Check out the article here.
Also, Michael Baron Craze recently posted his recount of the Terror Film Festival from back in October 2011. He includes a nice little review of Quick Shop:
QUICK SHOP, from director Martin Binder rounded out the second gem film of this segment. The film contains multiple layers filter with twists on twists and providing quick thrills in all shapes, sizes and pounds, adding humor with terror and keeping the pacing moving smoothly. A hint of classic inspiration, from both Tales from the Crypt and Poe anthologies adds to this dark funny film. The storyline involves two friends Hunter and Trevor with a damage friendship trying to repair it while heading to Trevor’s parents home in the country, making a pit stop at a convenience store. Quickly things change from normal and ordinary to strange and unexpected, simply stated not everything is, as it seems allowing for a few surprising moments, chase scenes, and a creepy fellow. Horror fans, take note, a common rule in the genre , ‘Splitting Up’ is highly overlooked, and we all known the results of that action, one goes from the frying pan to the dinner plate. The story rushes by in hurried effective manner, for the short film with unseasoned actors, on a budget of $500 in five days with one error a pixilated sign in the store, but solid editing and cinematography have one overlooking the mirror flaw. The best line of the story, “I can’t die in a meat stop I’m a vegan”, and lastly this short puts the television show Scare Tactics to shame.

On Saturday, October 22, 2011, Quick Shop screened at the Cape May Film Festival. Recently the festival director e-mailed me with the following news:
Your film went over very well! Great reaction from the audience. I’d like to
show it again on November 12 at the Noyes Museum (right outside of Atlantic
Needless to say I accepted and have confirmed that Quick Shop will be playing on Saturday, November 12th at 7:00 PM at the Noyes Museum of Art in Oceanville, NJ. It’s awesome to hear that my film got a good reaction, and really makes me wish I would have attended. I will be attending the November 12th screening to be sure, and perhaps I’ll see some other supporters of Quick Shop there as well. This makes a total of nine festivals that Quick Shop will have screened at…just need to get one more to hit that magical double-digit mark! 🙂
