The Hunted - Youtube Contest Deadline!

Hey gang, the $1000 Hunted Youtube Contest draws to a close and it looks like we'll have about a dozen entries for Saturday's screening.

The entries are from all over the country and like Youtube itself, some can be considered hit and miss, several of them are quite good, and a few just blew me away.

But check them out for yourself. The episodes are online at:
on the top right hand side playlist.

We'll be looking at Youtube ratings and comments at Saturday's screening, so let us know what you think. Winners will be announced early next week.

Unfortunately, we were not able to secure a panel at this year's San Diego Comic Con, but The Hunted will still be at the convention and we're still slated to attend this year's Vampire Film Festival in New Orleans in October.

The Hunted - Generations

Mark Bedell, director of the Maine Academy of Stage combat provided us with a very funny episode for the Youtube Contest called "Generations", which involves his stage combat class being overrun with vampires.

The episode has come under some controversy, however, since it features Mark doing a sword fight with a baby strapped to his chest!

The fight is well choreographed and the child is completely safe, but there are those uneducated individuals out there who don't quite get the magic of movies. I have offered my testimonial as a professional Hollywood fight choreographer, but they have been pressured by individuals who will remain nameless to remove their episode from the contest, which is a shame because it's well done and damn funny!

For more info on the episode, see Mark's page here:
