Hi Tightarse film freakers, in an attempt to destroy apathy and bring back a bit of the 'low quality' but highly entertaining trash disasterpieces that we've come to love, I've come up with a cunning plan. This is also for the tightarse film makers with bugger all money and we want to get some of the tax payers money back off your dole cheque and put it back into a good cause. It'll make you feel all gooey inside and you'll be giving back to the community. (sort of)
This is the part of the Festival for the trashiest of the trash. The bottom of the cesspool of film making. Whether by birthright, on purpose or just plain accident. This is the perfect chance to make your first film (or next) on a miniscule budget and give it a crack. Get that dole cheque loan and create a video nasty. Shoot it on your smart phone, Dad's old VHS or ANYTHING! Just make the bloody thing!
We want Sinematic disasterpieces of all kinds, B grade horror, Creature Features, Grindhouse, faux trailers, science Fiction, slasher, sick n' twisted animations, Bad taste comedies, blood bath orgies, SURPRISE US!
JUST SO YOU KNOW: The touring Trasharama program has its premiere each year at Monster Fest in Melbourne (Nov 24-27, 2016), but please note the Tightarsateurs are not eligible for Monster Fest Official competition awards. Not all films will be screened. But the ones that do will be included on the Trasharama 'Roadkill roadtrip' around Oz. THOUGH, if we get enough entries we will have a separate Trasharama TIGHTARSE program sometime in the future. You gotta be innit to win it. Stay tuned!
