20th Digital Studio will premiere Bite Size Halloween Jr., a series of three original animated short films to help families celebrate Halloween 2020 at home. The larger Bite Size Halloween initiative includes 30 spooky short films ranging from horror comedy to psychological thrillers and everything in between. Created by up-and-coming filmmakers, these films will screen across digital and broadcast platforms Freeform, FX, and Hulu’s Huluween platform hub and YouTube channel.
David Worthen Brooks, EVP of 20th Digital Studio, says: “20th Digital Studio and the Bite Size series provide a platform for emerging storytellers and give them the resources needed to realise their vision. Each short episode can also act as a low risk proof-of-concept for a feature version of the short, providing the filmmaker concrete steps toward their larger ambition. This energy and excitement in short form horror provides a global arena for a community of diverse filmmakers.”
Bite Size Halloween Jr. features the following:
BACK TO CAVE ONE: Created by Passion Pictures’ directing duo Maryka & Quentin, BACK TO CAVE ONE follows a caveman and his daughter in the far future re-discovering the lost tradition of trick-or-treating in beautiful CG animation.
COW ALIENS: Creator David Nessl’s unique hybrid animation style depicts the intrepid Cocoa Fia and her crew of Cow Aliens on the search for ‘Moo’ across the universe; landing on a planet made entirely of candy, where they discover sugary treats and sarcastic vampires.
PLANE JANE: A young girl and her pet duck tell the story of the me they were stuck on an airplane over Christmas, haunted by an omni-present Santa Claus, in stunning stop-moon by director Max Winston.
Bite Size Halloween & Bite Size Halloween Jr. 2020 feature 30 exciting new filmmakers, amplifying their voice in the film community. This year’s cohort includes a well-rounded group of filmmakers representing different countries, identities, and backgrounds. The long term goal of 20th Digital Studio’s short film programs is to continue to guide and finance the growth of these artists’ careers.
Formerly Fox Digital Studio, 20th Digital Studio’s short film series previously-titled Bite Size Horror, was released during the 2017 Halloween season and aired on broadcast and online. This is the first year that family-friendly animated shorts are included.
