WHISPERS FROM THE DARK
Screams in a Box is a terrifying collaboration between Film Camp in a Box and The George A. Romero Foundation. The film competition will engage and excite your child's senses and promote an important media literacy skillset.
Screams in a Box is delivered directly to your front door and includes a fully loaded “haunted” Mac Book, HD camera, tripod, boom mike, green screen and a surprisingly “terrifying” movie prop that will be used in the production of your short film. You and your film crew will have 60 hours to create a script, film and edit your movie, before we pick up the equipment on Sunday evening. Your movie will be automatically entered into The Screams in a Box movie competiion and you will be given a QR coded commemorative t-shirt to enjoy the films.
Your box registration fee includes up to 7 hours of on demand, live synchronous mentoring from a master filmmaker to engage your young filmmaker in story development, cinematography and shooting / editing techniques.
Films will be judged by industry leading ‘A’ list horror movie directors and celebrated at our live, red carpet virtual film festival, with the top 3 films being shown at the Salem Film Festival in May 2022. Awesome prizes and honourable mentions will be awarded at our virtual festival on October 30. The entrance fee is $150, inclusive of the box, delivery and pick up, mentoring and commemorative t-shirt. Zombies, Ghosts and goblins are extra. Workshop dates are October 2/3, 9/10, 16/17 and 23/24.
