Last March, Look At Me Films announced a new horror short they would be distributing on the festival circuit, “Dear Guest.” Given that it was March, we have no idea how many festivals that short actually made it to, but the short is about to get a second life on streaming services.
David Meyers is a screenwriter currently developing several projects. One is a TV project starring Michael Shannon called “We Will Not Be Silent,” originally developed as a stage play before COVID made such things hard to pull off.

Crypt TV has released Shadow, a short film created as a proof of concept, on their YouTube channel.
As we speak, millions of people are cracking up from Cabin Fever in their own quarantined homes. Vincent J. Roth (remember, the “Surge of Power” guy?) feels he can do something about it. He’s been working on a new short about one of his favorite subjects, Doctor Who…and he was planning some kind of public social premiere, but there are more urgent matters now.

We’ve known for some time that Daughter of Dismay, an ambitious art film by Austrian director James Quinn, is slated for release sometime this year.

Independent films and shorts rarely get as ambitious as Daughter of Dismay*, an Austrian art film by director James Quinn. Shorts like this are notorious for their low-budget looks, but this one has been filmed entirely in 70MM IMAX photography.
Neill Blomkamp, who seems to have found his niche in shorts, has directed a new one — and it’s out now for all to view for free.

The three-minute short is called Conviction: An Anthem Trailer, and it’s set in the world of Bioware’s anticipated upcoming MMO, decades before the game’s story takes place.
