Filmmakers Create Terrifying Short Films at YouTube Space LA
YouTube Space LA has gone all out for Halloween with their creepy post-apocalyptic film set – and now they’ve brought in some of the best filmmakers on YouTube to scare the crap out of you.
YouTube Space teamed up with Skybound Entertainment (led by “The Walking Dead” executive producer David Alpert) and legendary comic book creator Robert Kirkman to create a series of Halloween videos. Fifteen talented creators from eight different channels are writing and producing short films that imagine what happened to the derelict, abandoned house of the set.
Zombie apocalypse? Nuclear holocaust? Mad scientist? Whatever it is, it’s probably going to give you nightmares.

Details on the individual projects are mostly under wraps, but we’ve heard some intriguing stuff. What’s Trending alum Lon Harris has teamed up with SourceFed’s Steve Zaragoza to tell the story of a guy who finds himself hiding in a bunker with people from his past. Award-winning producer Whitney Milam and “Lizzie Bennet Diaries” writer Rachel Kiley are creating “In The Dark,” a gay horror film set in a world overrun by a deadly virus – and you can take part in the project by supporting their Indiegogo campaign in the next 11 days.
Other creators involved:
• Joe Penna & Ryan Morrison from MysteryGuitarMan
• Zeke Thomas & Sarah Lukasiewicz from BlackBoxTV
• Michael Schroeder & Michael Davis from The Warp Zone
• Lana McKissack & Nathan Moore
• Emily McGregor & Sam Weller
• Yulin Kuang
Earlier this month, these creators attended filmmaking workshops at YouTube Space LA, with guest speakers including David Alpert and Academy Award-winning actress and filmmaker Geena Davis. We can’t wait to see what they come up with.
