Halloween Bonus Content Open Bid Pitch Project
Create on-disc bonus content for the new film, 'Halloween'.
Open Bid

Due August 13th, 2018 - Tongal received over 200 amazing concepts from the Halloween (2018) Bonus Content Concepts project and are looking to YOU to bring them to life!

Serving as a direct sequel to the original movie, Halloween (2018), starring Jamie Lee Curtis and Nick Castle, will be launching in theaters this October.

Working with Tongal, Universal wants to see your pitches on the following winning concept from the previous project:

Understanding Horror

Similar to popular YouTube channels like Nerdwriter or Every frame a painting. Create original short video essays that dive deep into the culture of horror and how it has such a deep hold on us. And how movies like Halloween craft horror so well. For survival, explore why the fear of death is so important. Pure evil, does it really exist? Look into past examples that are horrifying because they are true. The fear of betrayal and how it is used in story, etc.

Note: The sponsor is not interested in real life killers or necessarily examining individual scenes in movies that would require licensing etc. Instead, want to talk to fans of the genre. Why do you love being scared? Why does the culture of horror have such a deep hold on us?

Please avoid humor or campiness in your pitch.

The timing is TIGHT. If you are selected as a pitch winner, you will need to adhere to the following production schedule:
   Pre-Production: 8/17 - 8/22
   Production: 8/22 - 9/4
   Rough cuts turned in: 9/4

This is an open bid project and you will need to submit your proposed budget along with your treatment. In this project, the sponsor will determine how many submissions it will select, if any. They’re looking for videos that are between 90-seconds and 5-minutes in length as well as social assets. The sponsor is open to content over 5-minutes as well. Please specify what you can deliver in your treatment. As exact social assets will be determined at a later date, please ensure you budget proposal includes creating/ editing those assets. If the sponsor decides to green light your pitch, depending on how the music will be used, they may be able to provide you with cleared score cues from the film.

The goal of this project is to create bonus content for the Halloween (2018) DVD and Blu-ray, and to market the home entertainment release on digital and social platforms.
