Guillermo Del Toro, Legendary Pictures, and YouTube host Halloween Film Contest!

Halloween is just around the corner! What better way to celebrate this scary holiday than to enter a contest of spooktacular proportions. Guillermo Del Toro teamed up with Legendary Pictures and YouTube to give budding filmmakers a chance of a lifetime! You will have a chance to scare the heck out of Guillermo Del Toro!

If you are lucky enough to have a YouTube Channel with 10,000 subscribers or more, you will have the opportunity to produce in the YouTube spaces with their new stages (and free use of camera equipment)!


Starting September 22nd, YouTube will supply locations “including a great room from an old manor house lined with walls of books; a sinister staircase and Gothic windows that lead out to a haunted garden; a room filled with exotic and occult artifacts from around the world; an abandoned solarium cluttered with over-grown plants, birdcages and weathered tools; and a claustrophobic attic with foreboding art, dusty mirrors and a hidden trap door. All of the sets are designed to be connected and make up the rooms of one house.”

The produced shorts will be streamed on Legendary’s YouTube Channel and be promoted on social media from October 21st til Halloween! YouTubers will have until October 27th to produce their films!
