The first annual EOTM (Entrepreneurs on the Move) Awards were held at the prestigious Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood, CA on August 4, 2013. Filmmaker Jared Lee Masters won the 2013 EOTM Award for Best Scream for the horror film Slink, which is available on Video On Demand and on Amazon.com.  Slink received favorable critical reviews and features Heising as Joan, the purse designer.  Masters began making films at age 14 when he directed and edited skateboarding videos.  In 2007 he joined the Screen Actors Guild and moved to New York, where he landed a few minor roles in feature films and television, and directed several documentaries and short subjects, including Meet the Freaks at Dreamland Coney Island (2010) and The Umbrella (2010). In 2010 Masters moved to Venice Beach and made his first full-length feature, Climb It, Tarzan! (2011), one of the rare films to feature an all-female cast. It was immediately followed with 8 Reels of Sewage (2012). Some of Masters' trademarks: retro themes, female empowerment, fetishism, burlesque as an art form, exploitation, voyeurism, society's underbelly, carnival and circus themes, and homages to B movies of the 1960s. 

The Slink plot is:
Uncle Arlo, Kayla Nunez and her sister venture to his home in the rural town of Wickenhaven. They plan to claim their share of his estate, but their trip takes a drastic turn after discovering that their uncle's house is occupied by a mysterious relative, Aunt May, who may be harboring deadly secrets.  Complicating matters is the deranged, lust-filled tanning salon owner, Dale, and his exotic wife, Joan, whose business in designer handbags is the backbone to the entire town's economy, and possibly the darkest fashion controversy the world will ever know.  Uncle Arlo, Kayla Nunez and her sister venture to his home in the rural town of Wickenhaven.
