Extra Credit: Scary Short Film Fest

Wes Craven Presents: Studio 360's Scary Short Film Fest

Master of suspense Wes Craven has been orchestrating horror for more than four decades. Now, you have an opportunity to get a little payback.

We want you to create a super-short horror movie — 30 seconds or less on the theme of "young genius." Craven will announce a winner on the show.

The deadline to be considered for our challenge is 11:59pm ET March 2, 2014.

UPDATE: The winner of our contest is Jake Jarvi for his film ...Jake.

See Wes Craven's shortlist here.

“I was really impressed and entertained by all that I saw,” says our judge.

Thanks to everyone who shared their work with us!

Out of the Water
by Lily Nickl, starring me and my friend Katherine. I'm 12 and this is the first film I have finished! I had lots of fun making the film and aside from the fact the upstairs carpet is ruined, I would love to do it again!

A 30 second long horror film for the studio360 scary short film fest. I had only heard about the festival the morning of march second. We brainstormed the idea at lunch and shot later that evening. Special thanks to my parents and my friend Zack Bernstein for helping me put this together last minute.
Film shot and edited by Simon Geisker a 14 year old from NY

A walk home in the rain becomes a lot more.

This was a great way to spend a Saturday morning. I hope you dig it!

Unfortunately, I wasn't able to finish the audio for the film... but our idea of a young genius was a kid that was bullied a lot who, unfortunately for the bullies, didn't know that he had telepathic powers. Our idea for the "horror" aspect was that initially, the viewer wouldn't really know how the victim was killed, and the list of his next victims would leave mystery as to how they will be killed. We wanted to go with a sort of older style "horror" film, where there is a little bit of a mystery behind what was really happening.

A big thanks to Conner Haler, Maggie Monsrud, Emily Geary, and Holly Gambrell for helping with the filming and pre and post-production of the short.

About "What is Your Nightmare?"
In this short a tortured man has deduced exactly what the scariest thing in the world truly is. So, tell me, what is your nightmare?

About Zachary:
I've been a huge fan of Wes Craven for a long time. He plays a great role in why I want to be a horror director. When I heard about this contest on Studio 360, I knew I had to participate.

ASYLUM was shot on location at the state facility shut down in 1986 for heinous crimes against mentally challenged children.

When five friends sneak onto the property, more than just ghosts wait for them.

A young boy plays his guitar. He plays well. It looks like he's playing faster than his fingers can keep up. Best enjoyed at high volume.
