#hbfilmfest Playing Possum

Me and my brother Jared Crates made this film for the Horror Block/Rue Morgue film festival. We would really appreciate it if you could vote for us (We are the only Australian entry!). We would really love to represent Tasmania among a mostly American lineup.

You don’t even have to watch it (but we’d love if you did) You can vote by liking the video on Youtube, to do this you can either move your mouse to the top of the video and press the “thumbs up”. If this doesn’t work then you can click the word Youtube which will take you to the video. You’ll then find the “thumbs up” at the bottom of the screen.

A bit of info on the movie. We made the whole thing in a couple of weeks when we had free time (we both work full time). The whole thing was filmed on a GoPro in the Mowbray area. There is a substantial amount of real wildlife in the film and it was a lot of headaches getting them to act how we needed them too. Only a few of these shots are actually in the film but we have literally hours of footage to get them. By the end we could attract wildlife and get it pretty relaxed with us but it took a lot of trial and error. There was also the obvious issues associated with filming in the bush in the dark of night. If you have any questions about how we did anything we would love to answer them for you.
Thanks, Brendan Crates
