Hammer & Saw's Short Film Exit 7A to Receive International Award

Hammer & Saw’s most recent creation Exit 7A was selected for an International award, the Deadline Award 2013 at the 14th annual Landshut Short Film Festival, located in Landshut Germany. The Deadline award is a special award for an outstanding horror, mystery, fantasy, or thriller short film.  

“Exit 7A is a perfect short film. It is a complex story, told in a few minutes, with perfect twists and a punch at the end. There was no discussion, we saw Exit 7A and it was in competition,” observed Landshut Founder and Festival Director Michael Orth.

The winner of the Deadline Award will be selected March 13th- 18th during the Landshut Short Film festival.  

William Peters and Michael Mooney, both Colby-Sawyer alumni, created Hammer & Saw Films in 2008. Peters wrote and directed Hammer & Saw’s first short film Motel, which won the “Best of Fest” award at Somewhat North of Boston Film Festival (SNOB) and Rochester International Film Festival.  

Exit 7A was based on a short story written by Adjunct Professor and Colby-Sawyer alumni Asher Ellis and directed by Peters. This film stars Colby-Sawyer alumni Ben Watts, Michael Mooney, Angela Borrello, Joshua Heggie, Linda Lambert, Jay Lambert and Jerry Bliss. The film is a thriller/horror film about a hitchhiker who warns her driver that she is on her way to kill someone who lives off of Exit 7A. This short-film has been both a local and an international success.  

Hammer & Saw Films most recent productions are The Checkup and It’s Not Not Safe. Both were produced in conjunction with Windcrossing Productions and were both recently released to the public via Facebook.
