It’s October! Therefore, it’s scary season. That’s why we decided to share with you our live event that we recorded a couple of months ago. It was the scary success live panel run by Peter Storey of Greenlit in association with Kino. On the panel were Jake West, Frighfest’s Paul McEvoy, Alix Austin, Keir Siewert, Sarah Appleton, Giles Alderson and director/sales agent Julian Richard.

In their conversation they talked about:

–      making horror films in 2022

–      film festivals

–      the importance of cast

–      knowing your audience

–      platforms for horror content

–      value of short films nowadays

–      new ways of marketing

–      merchandise

–      how to animate your audience

–      casting and getting cast

–      getting named actors on board

… and so much more. This is a feature-length masterclass in indie filmmaking with a focus on the horror genre. You. Don’t. Want. To. Miss. This. So, sit back, relax and listen to our amazing chat!
