On Friday, Aug 31st Neon Reel Entertainment’s “The Darkness And Tom Markos” screened at the Horrorfind Film Festival in Gettysburg, PA. It was well received by a large audience. The rest of the weekend was spent spreading the word and selling DVD/Blu-Ray copies of the film to shoppers in the convention hall and enjoying the company of fans, filmmakers, and stars of the horror film community. Upon having sold out of copies of “TD&TM” (don’t worry, more are being produced as you read this), all that was left was waiting to see how it fared at the awards.
On Sunday, September 2nd it was announced that “TH&TM” received double the number of audience votes than any other film that had screened throughout the festival weekend, resulting in Neon Reel accepting the audience choice award. The family at Neon Reel couldn’t be more pleased and proud.
Next up: Hopefully watching the numbers rise. The number of festivals, the number of awards, the number of copies sold, and hopefully the number of audience members becoming fans of the hard work and entertaining productions coming out of this company named Neon Reel.

In mid 2010, three surviving members of the short lived, short form improv troupe The Pig Farm ( a sister group to the Maryland Ensemble Theatre’s hilarious Comedy Pigs) met for a drink. These players were Scott McVicker A.K.A. Double-T, Clayton Myers and Joe Jalette.
Upon doing so, the three reminisced about the good times they had working with one another and decided to keep the good times rolling. As a result they would meet sporadically to work and play and grow as individual improv players and as a team. As a result, Ponch!!! was unofficially formed.
Since then, Ponch!!! has become a pseudo safe haven for anyone with or without experience, to watch and/or participate in. It’s three original players remain the base pillars of it’s infrastructure, but other players have practiced and will likely perform both with, and in place of original members as time goes on.
Ponch!!!’s Mission Statement – Our main objective as a team is to seek out honest relationships that result in honest scenes. We try to refrain from the easy/obvious laughs. If our characters come across and the relationships shine true, the humor will be reached on a far deeper level. While we appreciate the basic principles of impov, we are still very much in our infancy as a troupe and are enjoying finding our own voice, and our own way. We hope our audiences find equal pleasure in the discoveries we make along the way.
Clayton will be taking on the role of Bobby in the Maryland Ensemble Theatre’s production of David Mamet’s “American Buffalo”. He will have the pleasure of being directed by Peter Wray while sharing the stage with the talents of Tad Janes and Jeff Keiholtz.

In late June it was announced that StraTa Tek Studio’s feature film “Heaven Burns” was not only accepted into the Action On Film Festival in Pasadena, California, but was also nominated for four separate awards. These awards were for Best Picture, Best Editing, Best Lead Actress in a Feature Film (Whitney Nielsen), and Best Lead Actor in a Feature Film (Clayton Myers).
On July 29th, “Heaven Burns” own Justin Beckenheimer (Writer, Director, Producer), Charlie Anderson (DP, Producer), Stacie Jones (Producer), Eric Cacioppo (Editor), Whitney Nielsen (Lead Actress), Spencer Garrett (Supporting Actor), and Clayton Myers (Lead Actor) all attended the Black Tie Awards Ceremony at the local Westin Hotel, where Clayton accepted the Award for Best Lead Actor in a Feature Film for his performance in the role of Ryan.
While “Heaven Burns” was not fortunate enough to take home the other three awards it was nominated for, everyone involved in the film unanimously congratulates all of the other winners from that night and extends it’s gratitude to all of the filmmakers who shared they’re works throughout that week. But most of all, “Thanks” goes to Del Weston and all of the wonderful people who helped to make the 2010 Action On Film Festival such a wonderful and memorable experience.
