October 2011
Contest: “Genre Swap”
Deadline: November 2nd - extended

The Details
It’s the spooky month of October once again, folks, and this time we want you to make a horror trailer…but with a twist! We want you to take an upbeat, cheery movie or TV show - anything that is not considered scary - and turn it in to a terrifying horror! Turn Bridget Jones’ comical love-life in to a total scare-fest, make the loveable cast of Modern Family in to a terrifying group of serial killers, you can even turn light-hearted classics such as Disney’s Cinderella in to a full-blown horror!

Here is an excellent example of a re-cut trailer from YouTube, which presents the family film “Mary Poppins” as a chilling horror trailer!

We’re asking you to attempt something just like this. Turn something that would usually make us smile in to something that makes us want to leap behind the sofa and hide! You can use anything from comedy to kid’s genre to fantasy, just as long as the show or movie you have selected has little or no horror aspect. Do not select any horror or horror comedies, for example, as this would already be considered scary enough and does not give you much of a challenge!

Please only select ONE fandom for your trailer. No crossovers between Back to the Future and Austin Powers, for example You may not use footage that is outside of your chosen TV show/movie, unless it’s title cards, but you may use outside audio to help sell your AU plot. It is up to you what you decide to do for this, just remember we are looking out for skilful vidders who can take something usually very up-beat or light-hearted and turn it in to a convincing horror trailer!

Good luck and have fun!! We can’t wait to see what you come up with!
