MUMBAI: The Weinstein Company and MySpace, the world’s most popular social network, announced the official Diary of the Dead video contest exclusively on MySpace.
Beginning 31 January through 29 February, the MySpace Film community will have the opportunity to see their own original horror short included on the DVD release of legendary director George A. Romero’s Diary of the Dead. To enter, all filmmakers must submit their original short horror films via the Diary of the Dead MySpace profile at http://myspace.com/diaryofthedead.
Throughout the duration of the contest, visitors of the Diary of the Dead MySpace profile can vote on their favorite short films and the top ten will be judged by Romero himself. He will choose the five best horror shorts to be included on the DVD release of the film, due out in theaters on 15 February, and his favorite film submission will receive prominent placement.
Diary of the Dead was written and directed by Romero and stars Michelle Morgan, Josh Close, Shawn Roberts, Amy Lalonde, Joe Dinicol, and Scott Wentworth.
