Guillermo del Toro and Legendary Teaming Up with YouTube for Halloween Short Films Project!
Hey guys! Horrorella here...
Time to grab your cameras - Guillermo del Toro and Legendary are partnering with YouTube for a Halloween project that you won't want to miss.
YOUTUBE SPACE HOUSE OF HORRORS:LEGENDARY HALLOWEEN is a partnership that will ask Youtube participants to create spooky short films - the winner will get a development deal with Legendary Pictures.
Beginning September 22nd, filmmakers with YouTube channels (there is a 10,000 subscriber minimum) will have the opportunity to create and submit short films using YouTube spaces (located in L.A., London, Tokyo, and New York). Each location will provide sets inspired by del Toro's particular brand of horror, including a creepy library and an abandoned, overgrown solarium, among others.
"I think it is important to find new voices in the genre,” Del Toro said. “Horror is such a unique way to express yourself at the most revealing, intimate levels — it can come from anywhere: domestic stories, historical research, the world news — it surrounds us and speaks through us. This is a great channel to see reveal fresh perspectives. Legendary’s Halloween and YouTube are perfect homes for them.”
Check out the introduction below from del Toro himself, and head over to Variety for all the details. Participants will have until October 27th to produce their films.
This sounds like a really fun project. I am a sucker for horror short films, and I am looking forward to checking out what everyone comes up with.
