Scene Autopsy




LATIN HORROR is pleased to relaunch one of its most beloved filmmaker engagement projects from its original analog site: SCENE AUTOPSY, where we showcase a sample scene from a horror/genre filmmaker’s film along with the scene’s script sides and have a constructive cinephile discussion about the post. Simple enough.

But having a front-row seat and seeing how it went from script-to-screen—and the subsequent participant’s varied takes on the content and related input—is a ton of fun. SCENE AUTOPSY is also a fantastic film school resource for emerging filmmakers, so it’s also a great way for seasoned filmmakers to pay it forward by sharing their skills via actual case studies!

Here’s how it works: Select a short scene from a film you have made and love, AND

1. Provide an artistic statement about the work, including some behind-the-scenes information about the production. (200 words or less).

2. Provide a short set-up of the scene (100 words or less).

3. Select and export a high-quality clip (1920×1080, 2K or 4K) of a scene from the film (up to a five minutes) in the following video formats: .MOV, .MPEG4, .MP4, .AVI, .WMV. But we prefer to get the movie clip.

OR, Upload your clip to either Youtube or Vimeo and provide us with the link (public viewing option, no password protection).

4. Provide the related script sides/pages for the scene (as a PDF file).

5. A high resolution still from the movie that will be used as the featured cover image.

6. Provide us with the content via We Transfer or Dropbox to:

We will create a dedicated SCENE AUTOPSY page on LATIN HORROR (website) for your submission, and share it via our social media and in our listserve e-newsletter.

Then folks can READ the Script | WATCH the clip | DISCUSS.

Don’t worry, we wouldn’t leave you hanging without the benefit of a reference sample.

Only mediamakers subscribed with LATIN HORROR can participate (it’s only fair) —

Accepting submissions starting December 1, 2021!
