Harold’s Going Stiff

Yorkshire based filmmakers Keith Wright and Richard Guy won the audience award for Harold’s Going Stiff at Edinburgh’s Dead by Dawn back in May. Thoroughly deserved for this excellent low budget ‘zom-com-rom’. HGS played to a very appreciative audience at the Bradford Film Festival in March and is starting to create a bit of buzz on the festival circuit. Look out for it.
