A Psychological Thriller
A Psychological Thriller
The Short Film
A late-night radio show DJ in a small West Texas town receives a call on the air one night from an unfamiliar voice who leads him through a mysterious mind game.
Carnage Radio is a psychological thriller short film based on a full-length feature script. It was filmed entirely in Big Spring, TX with a local cast and crew.
The Film Festival Run
We are currently in development and seeking funding to produce the full feature film. The plan is to take the short film on a festival run in hopes to shop it around for the funding needed to shoot the feature.
But traveling to festivals also cost money, and can be expensive. Currently, we are submitted to 80 festivals around the world, and want to attend as many as possible. The people we meet at the festivals has helped get us to where we are now. We even have a producer on board which we met last year at the South Texas Film Festival who will be joining the feature film shoot, providing not only his talent, but also his arsenal of filming equipment.
Many people in the film industry travel to the festivals not just to show their films, but to find diamonds in the rough. Producers, distributors, studio executives, and so on look for projects they may want to help fund or be a part of. That is our goal for the short film!
The Carnage Radio short film has already won 2 awards at the Prison City Film Festival in Huntsville, TX for Best Thriller Film and Best Sound & Sound Mixing. It was also nominated for 9 other awards.
It is currently nominated for Best Horror Short at the upcoming Bare Bones International Film & Music Festival in Muskogee, OK.
The Feature Film
We intend to keep the feature budget low, and we can do so due to the fact that the film has most locations already secured and given to us free of Charge. We have the backing from the town of Big Spring, TX, including the Mayor, City Manager, Police and Fire Department. This allows us to use the majority of the budget for equipment rentals as well as paying our cast and crew.
Carnage Radio has been written specifically to support a low budget, which could create a tremendous upside for fans of the genre. The entire screenplay has been developed to take advantage of the available resources offered to us by the town of Big Spring. Almost two years has been spent fine tuning it into a highly marketable story, as well as an affordable production.
The Big Spring Convention and Visitors Bureau are currently working to make the town a film friendly location with the Texas Film Commission. We have spoken with them, and they believe a Carnage Radio feature film will be a great platform to show off Big Spring for future productions. This opens the door to bring work and business to the town, and putting all of us on the map. And that is our goal for the feature film and the city of Big Spring!
