Brian Herskowitz wins 3 Awards at the Vegas Movie Awards™
The web series/TV pilot Murray Ghost is the winner of the prestigious Las Vegas-based Film Festival Vegas Movie Awards™ for Best Web Series/TV pilot Award of Prestige, while the original song from the show “Stick Around” took home the Merit award for Best Song. Finally, the mystery/crime thriller Conceptus won for Best Feature Screenplay Award of Prestige.
Murray Ghost tells the story of Murray having a bad day. He lost his job, his wife left him, and on top of it all, he’s dead.
Conceptus is the story of Columbus, Ohio, Homicide Detective Laura Drummond. As a young girl, she was brutally attacked and left for dead. Now, 24 years later, she investigates a serial killer whose m.o. is eerily similar to the assault that nearly took her life. To catch the killer, she must face her past.
Murray Ghost was produced, written, and directed by Brian Herskowitz. Conceptus is an original script that Brian wrote. The novelization of Conceptus, which he also wrote, is available on many book websites.
Murray Ghost was a family affair with Maggie Herskowitz writing the lyrics and Bailey Herskowitz performing the award-winning song Stick Around. Nashville composer Leonard Wolf wrote the music for the song and the movie’s score. The short film also stars Supergirl’s Helen Slater.
