In my last blog I said how I’m planning on entering the online short film competition for the ABCs of Death part 2. Not only have I wrote my short film but my girlfriend has written one too! She’ll also be directing it. And it’s already almost cast. But I still have my cast call below. The ABCs of Death is a 26 part horror anthology that consists of horror directors from around the world and if we win our film gets to be apart of it. It will be on the DVD and get national distribution. The first ABCs of Death is available at large retailers like Best Buy and is currently on Netflix instant. This is a competition so I don’t want to reveal the plot so the character listing will be vague. Once it’s cast you’ll receive the full script. Info on the competition at the official website: http://26th.abcsofdeathpart2.com/
Here’s a description from the website:
“So, how do you participate? First, you”ll choose your own ABCs OF DEATH word starting with the letter “M.” For example, M is For Murder… or ideally something way more creative than that.
Then, you set out to create a short film inspired by the word you’ve chosen. How you interpret the word is entirely up to each competitor. You can shoot live-action, animation, stop-motion, use actors, cut-outs, puppets or animals. The choice is yours – there are no restrictions on content or creativity, provided of course you don’t break any international laws… or bore us.”
Casting Call for ABCs of Death part 2 short film:
My short film deals with the occult and religion, though it’s not satanic and no other religion is referenced by name. I felt I should point that out. In the story, it’s a religion made up of mostly women, but I can put in a few male extras in there too. The film is only 3 minutes so all the parts are important and will get plenty of screen time.
Will be shot in September in the Central Valley. No pay.
