Here’s a great opportunity for all up and coming genre film directors out there. A chance to work alongside some of the directors listed below. It’s one damned fine looking list too and is getting me all fanboy flustered! I’d give my left nut to work with these guys and gals! Anyway, I’m not a filmmaker, but I am sure there are plenty of you out there interested in this, so what are you waiting for?
Check out the official site – The ABC’s of Death
We are searching for the next great genre director and we are prepared to give away five grand in cash and a dose of fame to find a lucky winner. The ABCs of Death has already signed up 25 of the most talented genre directors on this planet and have saved the 26th spot for someone to grab with both hands and to throttle it into submission. The winner of this global search will have their work included in a feature film alongside some of the genre’s most talented new blood. But even if you don’t win, your searing talent may just be discovered through this competition. So if you want to take part in the greatest horror project since Dr Frankenstein first threw that switch, then just read the below and start those bloody creative juices flowing.
Please do not upload any old short your film you may have made. We won’t post anything that isn’t created specifically for this competition. Read all the instructions below or all your effort may go to waste. Those who don’t read instructions very well should find someone who can. (or grab a translator)
And yes you can shoot in any language you wish. All we ask is that you subtitle it in English.
Remember to upload your work as quickly as possible, as the more people you can get to vote for your short the more chance you’ll be in the Top Ten and to go onto the final judging round, when the 25 other directors get to choose the winner.
