This is Ahash and Virgina reporting. At the moment we’re making promotional videos for the event. All the videos are thematically connected: a group of Torontonians kids are just going on with their daily lives and are suddenly kidnapped by a mysterious man. What happens afterwards and whether or not they escape from his clutches forms the rest of the story of our video.
We are not filmmakers or have much skill with in video editing, so the videos are a bit rough. Shooting the promo videos was pretty crazy. We filmed about four promo videos so far, and even though we shot them with flip-cams and the occasional iPhone, they came out really well. Whoever says need a fancy DSLR camera to shoot a good movie is obviously an uncreative liar.
Some spoilers involve a recycling bin, a surprise birthday party, a heart-to-heart, and an artsy fartsy train track scene. We’ve got really terrifying ones and ones that will just make you laugh your ass off. Stay tuned, people.
Part of the SummerWorks Festival, The Torontonians Dare Night Lockdown performance art/sleepover event takes place Aug. 10 7:00pm – Aug. 11 10:00am in the Ballroom. Make sure you pack extra underwear, it’s going to be a scary one!
