On the occasion of Huluween, 20th Digital Studio’s Size of a Halloween bite series of scary shorts is back for a third season! Twenty new short films from exciting emerging filmmakers premiere October 1 on Hulu, blending genres like horror, comedy, sci-fi, thriller, and more.
Filmed in seven different countries, this season tackles hot topics such as racism, gender, parenthood, sexuality and identity. Snatch (dir. Michael Schwartz) stars Tatiana Maslany (She-Hulk: Lawyer) in her first screen role with her husband Brendan Hines (locke and key). Misha Osherovich (Weird) stars like their son.
Other shorts feature familiar faces like Brigette Lundy-Paine (Atypical), Lin Shaye (Insidious), David Costabile (breaking Bad), and former Shine co-stars Rebekka Johnson and singer-songwriter Kate Nash who co-wrote/directed/starred in a short film featuring Nash’s original music.
David Worthen Brooks, SVP 20th Digital Studio commented: “As we launch the first feature films developed with our incredibly talented alumni Bite Size Halloween filmmakers, we are excited to showcase the next wave of dynamic filmmaking talent and their ingenious shorts. We are very proud to present these vital and diverse voices and their very personal twists on horror, thriller and sci-fi.
The goal of 20th Digital Studio’s short film programs is to continue to guide and fund the career growth of these artists and to turn some of the short films into feature films. The first two films developed in this way will premiere this month on Hulu: Grimcutty by John William Ross on October 10 and Matron by Ben Steiner on October 21. Shorts from past seasons have played at festivals such as SXSW, Sundance, Tribeca, Fantasia, and more.
20th Digital Studio’s focus on diversity and inclusion continues with the presentation of prestigious filmmakers from around the festival, including Nuhash Humayun (MoshariGrand Jury Prize SXSW), Sam Max (ChaperoneSundance), Michelle Krusiec (BiteAFI DWW), Zoey Martinson (cupidsTribeca), and many more.
