Drew Daywalt of FEARnet is doing something very interesting for indie and amateur horror filmmakers this holiday season, in a project that strikes a chord with me.

Here's a 5 page horror short which I wrote expressly for you guys to direct!  It's called The Talisman and I encourage you guys to go make this film in any way you see fit. Wanna animate it? Go ahead. Claymation? Fine. Live action with major creature effects? Go for it. Live action with no creature effects and just the "idea" of spfx. That's cool too. Just wanna film it all at your kitchen table? Not a problem. It's all about story…

All the relevant information about the project is on FEARnet for anybody interested in participating. Because if I had good equipment and some SPFX money, I would be doing this too.  It's always been my not-so-secret dream to stumble into film like some of my heroes before me. Of course I want to make literary-based horror films with a feminist bent, but that's another story for another day.

Overall this a great idea, a great project, and a wonderful way for some people in the genre to stretch their legs and get a little attention in the process. It's just a good thing no matter how you slice it.
