4TH JULY - ARROW VIDEO FRIGHTFEST RENEWS NEW BLOOD TALENT SEARCH

After the success of last year’s inaugural ‘New Blood’ search for new writers in the horror genre, the hunt is on for another batch of scribes to cook up a potent cauldron of original ideas and devilish tales. And the search starts today!

 New Blood 2 finds FrightFest once again teamed with Giles Edwards of Queensbury Pictures, which aims to find new writers and nurture their project from script to screen.

One of last year’s entries, thriller BROADCAST SIGNAL INTRUSION, is now in pre-production, and is one of Queensbury Pictures’ first titles out of the traps. Written by Phil Drinkwater and Tim Woodall, it will be directed by Jacob Gentry (The Signal, Syncronicity).

The successful shortlisted applicants will workshop their ideas in a group setting under the guidance of top industry professionals and genre experts which this year includes BAFTA-nominated UK producer Jack Tarling (God’s Own Country; Await Further Instructions) who is joined again by horror icon Barbara Crampton, director (The Ranger) and producer (Psychopaths) Jenn Wexler and Queensbury Pictures’ Giles Edwards.

The New Blood networking and workshop event will be held at on Thursday 23rd August, the opening day of this year’s festival, in a Central London venue

Applications are open from Wed 4 July with potential participants asked to submit a 200 word proposal through Film Freeway. The deadline is Thurs 2 August.  All successful applicants will be notified by Mon 9 August.  All participants are expected to pay for their own travel and accommodation.
