Here are the submissions and results for the inaugural week of Camp Blood: Quarantine. This week’s theme was “Contaminated”. Thank you all for your hard work and submissions! We hope this was as fun for you as it was for us. This week reminds us that a physical quarantine doesn’t mean a creative one. Keep watching #CampBloodQuarantine for news and updates.

Judges Comments:

“Really interesting use of the tools they had to tell a modern story. Felt real, I could see half of the population doing exactly what she did for that film in the event of a pandemic”

“eerily relatable. This could be found footage from a loved one.”

“The writing is really stellar in this simple found-footage style short, proving that you don’t need high production value to tell a great story.”
