Last year, friends of We Are Indie Horror, Seraph Films and nVisionate Studios hosted a year end wrap party in Van Nuys, California to commemorate and honor a year full of independent horror filmmaking called Scary Christmas. This year on December 19, Seraph Films and nVisionate are partnering with 3 Cubed Studios and We Are Indie Horror to throw the christmas party that horror fans deserve.
If you are missing Halloween and all the events it allows, this is the party for you! This year Scary Christmas will be bigger and better. Throughout the year, nVisionate Studios has moved from Van Nuys to Burbank. The studio space is now three times as large with numerous new sets. Last year the sets included a hospital bed with a grumpy old grandpa literally on his death bed, an interrogation room filled with monsters, and a jail cell decorated to match. This year the studio space includes all three previously mentioned sets plus new additions like a child’s bedroom plagued with monsters and a home front facade complete with a destruction of Santa Clause. Production designer Wendelyn Slipakoff is the mastermind behind making all these sets into scary visions of Christmas nightmares.
Scary Christmas 2015 will be FREE admission as long as in hand you have the flyer which you can download and print right HERE or download from the photo at the bottom of this editorial. Also drinks and food will be FREE! As last year, the night will consist of an awards ceremony where the hosts will have the opportunity to honor those who have help turn dreams into reality throughout the year. EVERYONE is invited to what is going to be the party of the year. If you want more information check out the official website and RSVP through the Facebook event. *UPDATE*: RSVP THROUGH EVENTBRITE (http://www.eventbrite.com/e/scary-christmas-tickets-19595802573) Party starts at 8pm and goes until 1:30am at nVisionate Studios (2015 Lincoln St. Burbank CA 91504)
If you are not going to be near Burbank on December 19, do not worry. On We Are Indie Horror’s YouTube channel there will be a live stream from the party. You can join us from the comfort of your own home. You’ll never know who will stop by the computer for a quick conversation with you.
With the addition of the two other companies this year, the party has been able to expand to something huge. Last year Seraph Films and nVisionate fronted all the alcohol and food expenses. This year the party is being filled up with sponsors that want to help the independent horror scene. What follows is a list of all the sponsors and what they will be providing. For more information on all the sponsors, head on over to scarychristmas.net. We as a full team thank these sponsors and are forever grateful to have them on board. More sponsors will be coming in the following weeks.
