No comments: Links to this post

The annual Film 4 Frightfest in London will be upon us very soon which means it's nearly time for the annual Shortcuts To Hell short film competition. This year the contest has a new judge British film director  Simon Rumley, who has just completed post production on his first ‘Hollywood’ movie The Last Word, SHORTCUTS TO HELL 2, which is run by FrightFest, Horror Channel, Movie Mogul and Wildseed Studios.

Rumley commented: “'As an arena to experiment, innovate and, ultimately, learn a craft, short film making always will be the lifeblood of film-making. It's great, therefore, to have a competition such as this to give aspiring film-makers an added incentive to try to realise their goal. This is a unique and mind-blowing opportunity”'

He will join Rosie Fletcher, acting editor of Total Film, Horror Channel’s Emily Booth, FrightFest director, Paul McEvoy, Wildseed Studio’s Creative Director, Jesse Cleverly and Movie Mogul’s John Shackleton, who are looking for new filmmakers primed and ready to make their first horror feature film.

The panel will choose three finalists who will then go forward to this year’s FrightFest event at the Vue West End in London, and have their 3-minute films screened before the discerning FrightFest audience. The overall winner will be chosen by public vote and will have their film produced by Movie Mogul and Wildseed Studios, entering production early 2015, with a minimum cash production fund of £20,000. The completed feature film will receive UK digital distribution, its world premiere at FrightFest 2015, and a broadcast premiere on Horror Channel.
