2nd Place Winner The Cleaner Directed by: Michelle Fatale
Written by: Michelle Fatale and Craig Mcgee
Michelle Fatale is a woman of many occupations outside of assuming the position of Executive Assistant of The Chainsaw Mafia. Primarily a producer/writer/director, she completed her first short film 'Dead Line' in 2004 which won official selection at the IFFNTX.com film festival, and the Pretty-Scary.net film festival as well as countless favorable online reviews. Since then she has worked on a handful of short films including 'Paraphilia' and 'Closet Monster' which was produced through her newly formed production company Chopping Block Films. Fatale has also been featured on screen in such films as 'Monkey V.S. Hooker,' and 'Werewolf in a Women's Prison.' She currently writes film reviews and articles for horror websites including choppingblockfilms.com, pretty-scary.net, and horror-fanatics.com. Her latest short film 'The Cleaner' produced with partner Craig McGee is her most ambitious project to date, and has most recently been accepted into the Northern California Film Festival, and SiliCon Film Festival. Along with McGee and Chopping Block Films, the pair have completed their first feature script and are currently working on their second. Their hope is to collaborate and begin production with an executive producer that shares a similar vision and love of horror.
