HORROR BEGATS HORROR? - [REC]2
Below is a message from Mr. Ant Timpson (48hrs film comp etc.)
If you guys can read it and then check out my proposal after the [REC]2 trailer.
"Indie films wage an ongoing war with major releases for awareness and promotion in a cluttered market space. It’s a war independent films are losing. Some cool films deserve to be seen in cinemas with an audience of fans. Films like REC2, the terrifying sequel to the horror hit REC.
REC2 will be released in a few New Zealand theatres on Black Friday (13 Nov), and I’m helping the distributor – Vendetta Films – to get the word out. The catch? They only have a few thousand to market it.
So I pitched Vendetta to let me give away 75% (Five Thousand Dollars Cash) to any individual(s) who promote (Buzz) the movie REC2 in the boldest and most innovative fashion. They said yes.
To be in to win the $5k all you need to do is use the untapped power of your mind. How’s that for a recession buster? For more information, read here."

My Proposal .
If all you people can send links to this WFT page to all your friends / facebook /twitter /myspace etc. and get some buzz going for the Friday 13th release of [REC]2 ,
and if by some stroke of luck - this strategy wins me the $5000 on offer - I hearby commit to write and shoot a macrobudget horror feature film by November 13 2010 , using the $5000 prize as the budget (and any extra cash I get my hands on ).
It will be called "HUT" and it will be shot locally in the Wanaka and surrounding areas.
There will be plenty of cast and crew roles to go around for all y'all .
I have Horror Movie director blood in me - My Granddad was a respected Horror director and I like to think something got passed down ( it may have just been an ability to grow a beard though!).
It's a simple plan folks - lets see if we can make it work.
