Hard Work Pays Off for Michael Lombardo at the NJ Horror Con and Film Festival

The thing that makes the NJ Horror-con and Film Festival unique is its award show for up and coming artists looking to get their work some exposure. Especially when the co-founder of the convention's film recently got featured on Amazon just before this last convention, it has to drive filmmakers to succeed. Michael Lombardo's drive was on full display at the Film award ceremony Saturday night when his film, I'm Dreaming of a White Doomsday not only one best picture but also won for best special effects.

I'm Dreaming of a White Doomsday wins best film and best special effects.
Speaking with The Blogboard Jungle, Lombardo talked about the long process of making the film and finding locations for the exterior shots in the film about a post-apocalyptic earth where a mother and son are trying to survive. With a budget of $11000 dollars, Lombardo put in a lot of effort to produce the award-winning film. A win at the convention has proven fruitful for filmmakers when you look at films like  Bad Frank that won at the first one last year and the exposure it got thereafter. Remember Lombardo's name as horror fans will likely be seeing a lot more of the pizza shop worker turned filmmaker in years to come.
