My Corman Quarantine Film Festival challenge entry...a VERY short horror-comedy NOT INTENDED FOR CHILDREN
On April 16th of this year, Roger Corman decided to issue a challenge to us house-bound filmmakers...make a film at home (or in your backyard) using your cell and only what you have available in your home, i.e. lamps for lighting, your own furniture for set and so on. And the film must be under 2 minutes. Post it on social media with the hashtag #CormanChallenge and tagging @rogercorman before midnight on April 30th.
Being a huge fan of Roger Corman's, particularly his cycle of 1960s Poe films usually starring Vincent Price (see my review of the many Corman-Poe cycle films ongoing in this very blog), I could not let this opportunity go by without creating my own entry.
And so we have Mixter Twizzle's Breakfast, named after the picture book I wrote and am reading from in the film (but make no mistake, this horror-comedy isn't for children's eyes...though, it is also not a "harsh" film in any way).
We also now have a short film festival you can check out via the hashtag #CormanChallenge (check it out on Facebook and Twitter, and perhaps Instagram, as well). But now that the deadline has passed, you can also see Mixter Twizzle's Breakfast on Triple Take's YouTube channel, as well as my IGTV.
Or you can just watch it right here:
