'Ten Scary Minutes' Horror Video Contest
Make a horror short using your smartphone or tablet.
All Ages

Due October 21st, 2013 - With the exceptional video recording capabilities of smartphones such as iPhones, the new BlackBerry, Windows and Android based cell phones with high-definition capabilities and the many user-friendly video editing options, just about anyone can shoot their own short film.

For this competition, you are challenged to create a short ten minute scary movie. It may be Gothic scary, like Hitchcock, shock scary, mock scary or outright B-movie campy! The whole idea is to take that cool video gadget, use your imagination and have a little fun!

The prize, for first place? A whopping $100.00 bucks, a trophy for braggin’ rights, the social cred of being savvy-cool and, well maybe your production goes viral and even noticed by the “Webbys”. Who knows? Maybe you become the next movie horror master!

The contest will feature two categories:
  1. scary horror – like “Frankenstein” or “Insidious”
  2. campy B-movie horror – like “Scary Movie” or “Killer Tomatoes”

Keep in mind the production cannot exceed 10 minutes, including opening titles and credits.

I think they used "whopping" sarcastically. :) This contest is obviously for horror enthusiasts who are more interested in making something fun and scary rather than someone looking to make bank. (3528 days ago.)
