Writer/ Director Scott Schirmer's first feature length film, "Found," won Best Feature, Best Director and Best Actor at Elvira’s Horror Hunt in 2012. It went on to win Best Horror Feature at The Phoenix Film Festival and the Audience Prize and Jury Prize at the Nevermore Film Festival. It was also an official selection of the 31st Annual Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival.

This film features disturbing content as the topic explores a young boy discovering his older brother is a serial killer, yet the strength of the film comes from the relationship between the brothers, the internal motivation and yearnings in both, as well as the dynamic with the parents in this dysfunctional family.

Scott's in depth look into his characters surely comes from his study of sociology (with a concentration in gender studies) at Indiana University in Bloomington, where he earned his B.A.

Besides "Found," Scott has written and directed many award-winning short films. Scott also managed his hometown's Von Lee Theatre and hosted the film music appreciation program “Sounds of Cinema” on the city’s community radio station, WFHB.

"Found" will be showing at the FSC Super Geek Film Festival on Saturday, July 5. http://floridasupercon.com/found.
