Fantastic Fest 2013: Dig Up Collaborative Short Film The Fantastic Corpse!

Post Thumb:


The last couple years have seen many different collaborations taking place within the world of horror, movies like V/H/S and The ABCs of Death bringing filmmakers together and mashing up their work.

Taking that idea to the next level, The Fantastic Corpse is a short film that runs less than ten minutes long and was directed by five different filmmakers. How the hell can so many hands fit inside such a small cookie jar, you ask?

Learn all about the innovative short film below, and give it a watch while you’re at it. You’ll also find a behind-the-scenes making-of documentary underneath the short, which shows you how this unique project came together!

From the Press Release
The Fantastic Corpse is a short film project based on the exquisite corpse collaborative method. Dell Precision and AMD are working with creative content company Arts+Labor to bring five Fantastic Fest filmmakers together to create one short film, each filming an equal part and continuing each other’s segment.

The first director (Oren Carmi, GOLDBERG AND EISENBERG) created the first minute and then passed on to the next filmmaker (Nacho Vigalondo, TIMECRIMES). When the third filmmaker tagged in (Jim Byrkit, COHERENCE), he was only allowed to watch what Nacho had created before making his segment. The fourth filmmaker (Matt Johnson, THE DIRTIES) could only see what the third filmmaker shot, and so on until Eugenio Mira (GRAND PIANO) completed the Fantastic Corpse. It was screened at the Fantastic Fest Awards Ceremony, a mere 5 days after it began.
