Horror filmmakers and their fans have a new website to call their own. Scary or Die has announced its official launch date: September 28th, 2010. They are currently accepting content from filmmakers which will be shown on the website.
From the Press Release
The kickoff for the website will take place on September 28, 2010 at 8pm at Space 1520. Space 1520 is located at 1520 Cahuenga Blvd. (just north of Sunset) in Hollywood. The outdoor venue will feature short films that have been uploaded to the website. Foods and drinks will be available at Umami Burger, which is located in Space 1520
At its foundation SCARYORDIE.COM is a horror destination site created/conceived by Michael Emanuel and fellow filmmaker partners Igor Meglic, David Reivers and Bruce Johnson in support of other filmmakers and their fans to upload, view and vote on horror shorts, original series and feature films.
At SCARYORDIE.COM, the content that gets the most favorable votes will get the best placement on the site…period. In addition to shorts, we’re producing and acquiring original programming in both short form (series) and long form (features) as it’s our intention to create a digital studio where the only agenda is what the fans want…not some studio head. Bypass the middlemen and the gatekeepers and get the product to the base, as they want it…when they want it!
Scary or Die has also announced that the first films uploaded to the site will be automatically entered into the first “SCARYORDIE ONLINE FILM FESTIVAL.” All movies submitted BEFORE midnight, September 21st would be eligible. Then, for the next two weeks, votes will be counted and the top three vote getters will receive the POPULAR VOTE AWARD. All films submitted will be judged by the fans. The film with the most votes wins! It’s that simple. Additionally, a panel of known industry vets will be voting for their top three video selections for a SPECIAL JURY AWARD. Hosted by Ivonna Cadaver and Spooky Dan Walker, the award ceremony will be held in Los Angeles in mid-October and will be streamed around the world LIVE on SCARYORDIE.COM. All winning videos will screen at the ceremony. Prizes will include a FREE WEEKEND at a world famous HORROR FILM BOOT CAMP in Los Angeles and other prizes from well known manufacturers that every filmmaker will love, plus your video will premiere online at THE destination horror website in world. Additionally all winning videos will be screened live during the SCARY OR DIE awards ceremony in Los Angeles, CA.
