THE FANTASTIC CORPSE PROJECT
What is the Fantastic Corpse Project?
The Fantastic Corpse is a short film project based on the exquisite corpse collaborative method. Dell and AMD are working with creative content company Arts + Labor to bring five filmmakers to create one short film, each filming an equal part. The first director creates the first minute, then passes on what he or she has created to the next filmmaker. The second filmmaker does the same. When the third filmmaker is tagged in, they are only allowed to watch what the second filmmaker’s minute before making their segment. The fourth filmmaker can only see what the third filmmaker shot, and so on until the Fantastic Corpse is complete and ready to be screened at the Fantastic Fest Awards Ceremony.
How are you going to pull that off?
Each Fantastic Corpse filmmaker will have access to a full cast, crew, and a variety of props and locations. Once they film their segment, a post production team will be at the ready to chop, assemble, score, and work their dark magic on the piece.
The film will be produced and edited on high-end Dell Precision T5610 and T7610 tower workstations powered by AMD FirePro™ W5000 and W8000 professional graphics, respectively, and M6800 mobile workstations equipped with AMD FirePro M5100. The systems will be paired with Dell UltraSharp U2413 monitors with AMD Eyefinity triple-display setups.
