Bruised a Crossroads Award Nominee

Posted by Jen - January 13th, 2014

I’m very proud to announce that Bruised is a Crossroads Award Nominee at the RxSM Self Medicated Film Festival taking place in Austin in March.

We have the immense honour of being nominated by the PollyGrind Underground Film Festival. Thank you Chad Clinton Freeman and PollyGrind for all your support over the last 2 years with both Hike and Bruised.

Here is the official announcement from Chad Clinton Freeman – the Director of the PollyGrind Underground Film Festival:

“The first short film that PollyGrind has sent to RxSM Self Medicated Film Expo in Austin is Jennifer Campbell’s Bruised. It will compete for the Crossroads Awards. PollyGrind recently joined the RxSM Film Exchange, so each year three of our winning films will compete at the Expo in March as SXSW goes on. Jennifer has been a winner at the “film festival of a different breed” for two years straight, so I am very proud to have her work represent PollyGrind.”

Film Bizarro reviews Bruised

Posted by Jen - October 30th, 2013

Thanks Ronny and Film Bizarro for watching and reviewing Bruised.

“Jennifer Campbell has put her own stamp on the body horror genre with “Bruised”. It’s a genre that has been done to death as the typical “gross-out” flick, but very few body horror filmmakers manage to bring that extra punch to it – that bit of reality. Jennifer Campbell and Briana Rayner’s performance does just that. It’s not about how extreme it can get, but how a person can fall ever further down the ladder when the last thing they have is taken away from them. I think “Bruised” is an excellent short film and a much needed take on the body horror genre. Catch it on the festival circuit t if you get a chance!”
