Paul Campion's "The Devil's Rock" Nominated for 3 Awards

Wow, it's been almost five years since we did our interview with Paul Campion.  We spoke with him after he made his awesome short films, "Eel Girl" and "Night of the Hell Hamsters", both of which screened at indie horror film fests.  If you go to Youtube, you can find clips from both... I'm not sure if they're on there in their entirety.  In any case, Campion's feature, "The Devil's Rock", was not only a great film, it was nominated for 3 awards at the New Zealand Film Awards.  Here's the press release and if you want to check out our interview from four and half years ago, here's the link.
