The Top 11 entries in Westminster College's Titan Terror Project will be showcased Wednesday, Oct. 20, at noon in the Sebastian Mueller Theater of the McKelvey Campus Center. The program is free and open to the public.
Westminster students, faculty, and staff were invited to make a thriller/chiller/mystery mini-movie that avoided graphic or gratuitous violence or gore. Contestants could use a cell phone or other digital camera to shoot a scary story and edit it with any computer-based software available to them.
The first round of judging pared the original 17 entries to 11 that are being reviewed and voted on by a panel of judges. Westminster's Audio Visual Services will tabulate the votes.
The showcase audience will have an opportunity to screen the 11 finalists and vote for their favorite. Results will be tallied immediately using an electronic polling device currently being used in Westminster classrooms, and over $300 in prizes will be awarded to the grand prize winner, runner-up, and audience choice.
The Titan Terror Project was a collaboration of Westminster's AV Services, Titan Radio, and WCN, Westminster's television station.
