Damon, the founder of Slasher had this to say, “I’m very excited to be working with such fantastic veterans in the horror genre. Putting together this competition is something a lot of people can use right now. It’s a fantastic distraction from the current state of the world, for both viewers and filmmakers alike. One aspect I love about this is that filmmakers may not have access to their usual cameras, sound and lighting equipment and crew, so it will certainly be a challenge and push boundaries to work under such conditions. I look forward to the results.”
