This year’s Women In Horror Month Massive Blood Drive kicked off early this week when we brought you the first PSA called “B(e) Positive” written, directed and edited by Joe Magna. Then yesterday we brought you an all-new PSA called “Be A Hero” by Vanessa Ionta Wright.
Today we have an all-new entry “Sanguino” by Dayna Noffke. The short is written by Anthony Taylor and stars Madeline Brumby, Viva Tolar, and Joe Hart. You can check out the new PSA below along with a statement from the artist, and then let us know what you think!
Look for a NEW WiHM Massive Blood Drive PSA every day from now until March 1st.
“I am grateful for the opportunity to be a part of this year’s Blood Drive campaign for several reasons. One of my favorite things about filmmaking is the collaborative nature of the art. I love meeting people, working with other amazing talents and bringing it all together to create something bigger than anyone of us. This project encouraged me to stretch my artistic imagination and to reach out to new people to help realize this vision, which is unlike any other project I have undertaken to this point in my career.
I love that there are 30 PSAs being released — that we are a part of something much bigger. This is a wonderful chance to meet new artists and to see and support their work.
Of course, most importantly, our entire team is thrilled to be supporting the cause of blood donation. I have personally been the recipient of blood transfusions at three different points in my life. I do not know what would have happened had that blood not been available when I needed it. I want to express my gratitude to blood donors and to put a face to this cause.
When you give blood, you are helping a real person – someone’s mother, someone’s sister or brother or baby… Although the need for donated blood can be greater during times of disaster, there are people who are counting on transfusions each and every day. We are honored to help spread the word and remind everyone how important it is to donate blood!”
Women in Horror Month (WiHM) is an international, grassroots initiative, which encourages supporters to learn about and showcase the underrepresented work of women in the horror industries. Whether they are on the screen, behind the scenes, or contributing in their other various artistic ways, it is clear that women love, appreciate, and contribute to the horror genre.
WiHM celebrates these contributions to horror throughout the year via the official WiHM blog, Ax Wound, The Ax Wound Film Festival, and with the official WiHM event/project database in February. This database—in conjunction with the WiHM social media fan base—actively promotes do-it-yourself annual film screenings, blogs/articles, podcasts, and any other form of creative media with the ultimate goal of helping works by and featuring women reach a wider audience.
This inclusive and positive movement is open to everyone, just as we believe the horror genre should be.
