#1: Michael Arnzen's poetry contest is in full swing in his gorelets newsletter. Check it out here to win a copy of Mike's movie Exquisite Corpse.
#2: Doorways Magazine is having a Horror Film Festival and looking for entries.
We're proud to present:
The First annual “Doorways Unhinged” Horror Film Festival
We decided to do this to give you a chance to show your talent. We want to be scared and hypnotized by your sinister imaginations. The film can be no longer than 5 minutes. A challenge yes, but, I've seen a lot of good ones done at that length or even shorter.
You're probably wondering why you should spend time entering our contest. Why would we be able to judge your work and say if it's good or not, if we don't make movies ourselves? I have found three judges that will look at your pieces:
Director: Greg Lamberson --- www.slimeguy.com
Director: Christopher Alan Broadstone --- www.blackcabproductions.com
Artist: Peter Mihaichuk --- www.mihaichuk.com
As you can see your work will be judged professionally. This is a way of letting you show your work to the public and we want contestants who are serious about being discovered.
Prizes will be awarded and the top three winners will be interviewed for Doorways magazine.
The movies will also be posted linked on Doorways so people can make recommendations to our judges. This will allow you to see how a general audience views your work.
There will be no theme but we do want one thing. There must be a Doorway in your piece. Doorways can lead to anything, show us what's behind yours.
The entry fee is only $10.00.
All entry fees must be received and all films must be posted no later than October 1st, 2007. First, Second, and Third place winners will be announced here on October 31st, 2007. Prizes and awards will be announced on the Doorways site and in the magazine.
