Calling All Horror Filmmakers! “Night Vision” Will Need Contestants!
New Line Cinema and Stage 13 have teamed up for Night Vision, an all-new reality competition tasked with finding the best up-and-coming horror filmmaker. An appropriate announcement for October, wouldn’t you agree?
Stage 13, the award-winning original premium digital content brand of Warner Bros. Digital Networks, and pioneering film studio New Line Cinema today announced the one-of-a-kind competition horror reality series Night Vision. The 13-episode series will be executive produced by James Wan (Saw, The Conjuring, Aquaman) and his production company Atomic Monster and produced by award-winning production company Magical Elves.
Slated for 2019, the show will be putting out a call for entrants later this year. For more information, click here.
“I can’t wait to discover the next, new talent in horror,” said James Wan. “This competition is an exciting opportunity for up-and-coming horror directors to get noticed by the industry and audiences alike.”
The premise is simple. 13 filmmakers will be chosen by a panel of leading horror directors, producers, writers and executives and given the challenge of creating the best, scariest short films possible. The winner will be given a once-in-a-lifetime development deal with New Line Cinema.
“We want to discover the storytellers who are going to push the genre further and drive a new generation in horror fandom. Warner Bros., New Line Cinema, James Wan and the team at Atomic Monster are leaders in this space and we’re thrilled to be part of this project,” said Diana Mogollón, SVP and GM for Stage 13.
New Line is a pioneer in the horror genre and has put out such iconic films as A Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th, and the Conjuring and Final Destination franchises. It was also the studio behind IT, the highest-grossing horror film of all time.
“New Line has a proud history of horror and we’re eager to partner with filmmaker James Wan, Atomic Monster and Stage 13 to discover the boldest new voices in the genre that will thrill and excite audiences everywhere,” said Richard Brener, President and Chief Creative Officer, and Carolyn Blackwood, President and Chief Content Officer, New Line Cinema.
I am not now nor have I ever been a huge fan of horror movies, but I can definitely appreciate a good one. And I’m a fan of competition shows like these, which give exposure and constructive advice to people trying to make their mark in a cutthroat industry like filmmaking. Brush up on your skills and start making those films!
