A few of my loyal readers (I’m talking to you, Ed!) will remember a monthly night of short films I hosted at the Second City “Firemall” from 2002-2003. It was a nice little community-building event, but uneven attendance and mounting costs ultimately caused its demise. The show was to be reborn as Small Screen Heroes on Movieola, but the zero-budget pilot I produced never actually aired on the network.
But now, almost 4/10ths of a decade later, on the cusp of a Neutrino Video Project summer run, I’m happy to report that we’re accepting submissions for short films to open the show!
If you’re interested all you have to do is deliver a DVD of your fine work to this address:
Bad Dog Theatre
attn: Neutrino Shorts
138 Danforth Avenue
Toronto, ON M4K 1N1
You don’t need an authored DVD per se — a data disc with QuickTime, Windows Media, AVI, etc. will be fine. Just no VHS tapes, please — this is the 21st century, after all! And being the 21st century you’re also welcome to send links to your work online via my contact page.
We’re biased towards comedy but are certainly open to masterpieces of any genre. The only technical requirement is that your submitted film must have a total running time of 30 minutes or less — honestly, though, if your flick runs any longer than a couple of minutes it’d better have some pretty killer production values for us to consider it!
As a bonus, submitted films will also be considered by the Bad Dog Theatre for their MYSPAYZ PAYJ!!1! Submissions for the Bad Dog site will likely be ongoing, but the deadline for Neutrino consideration is Friday, June 1st at 10pm.
