​Frazer Lee, Senior Lecturer and Programme Lead for Undergraduate Creative Writing at Brunel, has been awarded the prestigious Edgar Allan Poe Gothic Filmmaker Award 2018 at ZedFest Film Festival.

Frazer's film 'The Stay', which he wrote, directed and co-produced, also won the Outstanding Directing, Outstanding Screen Story and Outstanding Acting Performance Awards at the film festival awards gala held in Hollywood USA.

Frazer said: "I am truly grateful to the ZedFest Film Festival Directors and their sponsors for this very great honour. My thanks to the cast and crew of The Stay for all their hard work, and to all our friends, families, and supporters. What a fantastic start to the new year!"

The independent film, starring Daniela Finley, was shot entirely on location in Gloucestershire with cinematography by Alan Stewart (Disney's Aladdin). The film had its premiere at the World Horror Convention in Atlanta USA and has since been screened at film festivals around the world.
