John Taddeo Wins Best Film Award at HERO CON!
Best Film Award voted on by attendees at the 2006 Heroes Con in Charlotte
The big talk of the con was the fabulous films we showcased in the Westin Friday Night. The show featured a number of first rate independent short films based on stories from "Students of the Unusual". The show was ended with the film that started 3 Boys Productions in the comic business--"Under the Bridge" featuring Uncle Pat from issue #1.
The audience was responsive and enjoyed themselves and then they were given time to vote on the films.
