T IS FOR TANTRUM is not just another short film that we're throwing on YouTube. It is chance for us to gain some great exposure and advance our careers.
T IS FOR TANTRUM will be submitted to a very special short film contest -- THE ABCs OF DEATH -- a project that will feature 26 shorts (one for each letter of the alphabet) created by some of the biggest horror/thriller/sci-fi directors in independent film. People whose work we love and respect.
Every letter has been assigned, except one -- "T." This is where the contest comes in. Anybody can submit a short film, four minutes or less, that is about death, and inspired by the letter "T." The video will then be posted on-line, and the 10 films receiving the most fan votes will be shown to the other 25 directors. From the 10, one final film will chosen to represent the letter "T." http://drafthousefilms.com/the-abcs-of-death/about
With our bloody and funny script, highly experienced director, amazing cast, and professional crew, we believe T IS FOR TANTRUM can be that final film.
We would greatly appreciate any contribution you could spare to help us make that happen. Thank you so much.
