On Thursday, none other than General Hospital’s Michael Easton (Silas) received a very special honor for directing and producing his short film Ultraviolent which stars former One Life to Live favorite Trevor St. John (Ex-Victor Lord Jr.)!  Easton’s short film took top honors in The Best Shorts Competition winning The Best of Show Award.

In Ultraviolent the time is April 24, 1996, and in an act that mirrors the ending of his best-known film Performance, avant-garde director Donald Cammell shoots himself in the head, putting an end to a lifelong obsession with art, insanity and death.  St John skillfully captures Donald’s decent into madness amidst a background of pulsing music, deadly silence and creative filming.

The Best Shorts Competition recognizes film, television, videography and new media professionals who demonstrate exceptional achievement in craft and creativity.  Each year thousands of entries are received and are judged by highly qualified professionals in the film and television industry including Emmy, Telly and Communicator Award winners and nominees.

In winning “Best of Show” Michael Easton joins the ranks of other high-profile winners of this internationally respected award including The Weinstein Company, Disney Interactive and the Oscar winning production Mr. Hublot by Laurent Witz from Luxembourg.

Rick Prickett, who chairs The Best Shorts Competition, had this to say about the latest winners, “Best Shorts is not an easy award to win. Entries are received from around the world from powerhouse companies to remarkable new talent. The Best Shorts Competition helps set the standard for craft and creativity. The judges were pleased with the exceptional craft and storytelling of Ultraviolent.” Read more >
