Eventive - Austin 2021

It's been TWO YEARS since our last Genre Project, and what an eventful two years it has been. We've all experienced a wide range of extreme emotions, including fear, grief, anger, even madness -- perfect ingredients for a Horror Story! To stave off the insanity and hold on to hope, we've also made a LOT of funny memes and reveled in dark comedy. Sometimes, the only thing you can do to stay sane is learn to laugh at the insanity. Hence, we have chosen to focus on both Horror AND Comedy in this year's Genre Project!


As usual, our teams were given a pair of genres (one from each category), a prop, a character, a line of dialog, and only two days to create a short film, and enjoy a weekend they will remember for the rest of their lives. You won't believe our teams wrote, filmed, edited, and scored these vignettes in only 48 hours! Here's hoping they are as cathartic for you to watch as they were for our filmmakers to create.


"Limitations often produce the best results because imagination and determination can surpass any shortfalls and determine the way forward -- ALWAYS." Ridley Scott
