Dallas Filmmakers' Horror Short Scares Up First Place in Universal Studios Contest
Schieffer also handled the special effects on the film; hence her directing and producing credit. I asked Don Merritt, part of the winning Size Fives Production team, for more info -- like, where was that thing shot, anyhows? "It was shot in the alley behind Post Asylum on Dyer Street (behind Milos) in one night," he says via e-mail. "It is basically the opening scene for a feature we will be shooting. It was shot with VERY LITTLE money."
Ah, but winning top prize means $1,000 in cash -- and a showing on Chiller TV, a posting on SyFy.com, and, for the director, a trip for two to the opening night of Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Hollywood. Mazel, mazel. Boo.
