Bleedingham Presents: The Shelter in Place Challenge


Ah. The quarantine. Such a dreadfully dreary and powerful way to make so many humans

around the world share the same feeling of unease, as we ponder this invisible, and unknown

deadly invader together.

Since many of us were forced to isolate for long periods of time and into the present, we felt that, in this, that we wanted to encourage the practice of creativity and storytelling in the most minimalist of ways.

So we presented filmmakers with a challenge, to

create a short story, while in lockdown, with the tools you have at your disposal.

The Shelter in Place: 5 minute Film Challenge is a collection of scary stories from around the

world that Bleedingham is pleased to present on Friday, Oct 30 at 7pm Pacific standard time on

our Youtube channel.

Stay tuned until the end of the films, as we will present one film as the

winner of $300 for best film!

There will also be a special presentation of the Night Gallery:Horror

Fashion show: Cursed Forest at the beginning of the screening!

Please check in on our social media, website or our Facebook event for the link as it goes live

on Friday!

Dark Soon

Directed by: Nina Romain

“Dark Soon” is an Los Angeles-shot found-footage spliced with Ringu creepiness. Four young

LA filmmakers head to a nearby ghost town called Murphy’s Ranch. There they start shooting a

docu about how the Nazis built it, planning to colonise LA.

But as the sunshine fades, they realise that there could be some remaining World War 1 evil

lurking in the deserted location – and this just might be the last footage they ever shoot…

Vicious Valentine

Directed by: Nina Romain

Two young film makers are in Los Angeles shooting a docu about the creepiest place to have a

Valentine’s Day date. When they find themselves exploring a deserted zoo, despite the

warnings of their friend in Venice Beach, things start to go wrong. Is someone stalking them on

the Valentine’s Day from hell?

LA actor Nick DeLillo and Brit actors Malcolm Modele and David Dooner play a team of

filmmakers shooting a docu about unlikely locations for Valentine’s Day dates. Griffith Park Zoo,

which has been closed since 1966, on the outskirts of LA is a wasteland of abandoned cages

and deserted fake “caves” that the animals had been kept in, now littered with rubbish and

covered in graffiti.

Malcolm and David’s characters find some Valentine’s Day style gifts – as David’s character

uneasily asks: “Who leaves random roses in a place like this?” – and they start to realise they

are in fact being stalked in the Zoo by their own killer “date”.
