Michael Kehoe is the writer/director of ‘Hush’ , a short film taking film festivals by storm. Every time I check my Twitter feed or talk with Michael there is a new update and another award.  I’ve never seen anything like it. ‘Hush’ truly is fantastic and knowing that there will be a full length film has me really excited. You see, the short is actually one scene from the movie.

I recently interviewed Michael about ‘Hush’ you can read the full interview here :


I caught up with Michael on Friday to get an update and find out how everything was going.

KM “Since our interview you have been racking up awards for ‘Hush’. What awards have you gotten since the last time we talked?”

MK “We’ve won two more awards for ‘Best Horror Film’, and one award for ‘Best Cinematography’ , I wanted Director of Photography John Connor to win. He was instrumental in making it happen. After all, it was his eye that captured the moments written.”

KM “What festival will you be headed to next?”

MK “We are in several. This weekend (2/14) we are in a festival in Florida, ‘LOVE YOUR SHORTS’ . ‘HOLLYWOOD REEL INDEPENDENT’ Then next weekend we are in  ‘HOLLYWOOD SHORT FILM FEST’, we won two awards there.   Then 3/5 we are in ‘LA INDIE FILM FEST’, we’re nominated there. We are accepted to ‘NOW OR NEVER HORROR FEST’ in Spain. Let’s hope we get nominated there, I’d love to see John Conner and Michael Trent, our editor get awarded.


KM “Has anyone tied to the film received any special awards?”

MK “Early on we received awards for Visual Effects, Makeup, Director, just to name a few.”
