HOW it works
Inspiration, technical details and the proces step by step
WE MAKE A THRILLER, YOU CREATE THE STORY
how it works
1. You record a video
With your phone, cheap or pro camera you record your footage.
2. You send it via WhatsApp
This is the easy part.
3. We keep you involved
We go to work. We check your video and if it is useful we put it on the timeline and it becomes part of the movie.
4. Your name in the credits
Bucketlist things. Your name on the credits of an actual movie. Been there, done that.
5. A première invitation
Don't know where, don't know when. But the least we can do is invite you to the grand première.
don't listen to us
create what you want
As long as it suits a thriller

what to record
if you need some inspiration
1. A bit of storytelling
Tell a realy scary or suspensful story, or a part of a story. Something that you experienced yourself for example. Or a story you've heard or made up. Or tell us a local urban myth. As long as it is original and not copied from some book, movie or website.
2. Play a short scene, alone or with a group
Want to do acting? Great! Create a small scene, with or without dialogue.
3. Film your surroundings in an exciting or suspenseful way
Show us where you live and how great nature is. Or how impressive your city is. How small your house is, or how you go from a to b.
4. Film a dialogue with someone else
Talk with a friend or collegue about an exiting story, a spooky experience or a suspenseful happening.
5. Do a stunt or special effect, but be careful
Create something special. Make it bang, make it scary, do some daredevil things. As long as you are not hurting yourself or someone else.
another great idea?
perfect! suprise us!
send us the raw uneditted video file without filters and color grading
Important before you start
A. Video must be created by yourself
Don’t send us video files that are not made by you. Due to copyright rules we can only use personal made content. Don’t copy stuff from others.
B. Resolution is Full HD 1920x1080 30fps
Videofiles must have a minimal Full HD resolution. We edit on 30fps (frames per second, progressive). Check your device before you start filming.
C. Max file size is up to 16MB / 3 min
These are the restrictions of WhatsApp. So keep it short, lean and mean and send it clean. Or cheat and send us a Wetransfer link.
D. Good sound, light and low noise
Check your set up, do a testrun, film during daylight or use some lamps. Tell your dog to be quiet and check the wind. A good microphone is great.
E. Film horizontally and not vertically
Unless your creative idea needs to be filmed vertically, please hold your phone horizontal while filming. The screen has a 16:9 ratio.
Don't send us existing social media footage made by others, create your own content
