Blue Harvest Shorts is a Premiere Shorts EP Pod consisting of Steve Barr, Daniel Story and Paul Swadel. We will executive produce two short films in the 2012/2013 financial year with a budget of up to $90k each.
We are actively searching for highly-skilled filmmaker teams to make short films that demonstrate mainstream commercial tastes.
Blue Harvest Shorts has a focus on ‘genre’ short films, giving our future feature filmmakers the opportunity to develop and display a commercial sensibility and talent.
Hence, our choosing the name ‘Blue Harvest’ – which was the Hollywood code name used for the production of Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi. Commercial intentions are important to us.
If you want to make a deep and melancholic tale with ambiguous emotional intentions, we wish you the best of luck and invite you to look elsewhere.
If you want to make an engaging and entertaining short film that millions of average people would think is worth illegally downloading, let’s talk.
If your self-contained short is also a pitch piece for a feature film - great! That’s the attitude we like.
