2 weeks to write, shoot, and edit a film with certain elements required within. Winner of Best Editing, check out Strange Films newest addition to their bizarre world.  


Strange Films recently signed up for a film competition in part of the first inaugural Southern Oasis Film Festival in Knoxville, TN. The competition, called the 2 Week Twister, was to write, shoot, and edit a film in two weeks, that also required the use of certain elements, dialogue, time limit, and that ended with a twist. In return, the film production team created: Subject.

Directed by August Aguilar and starring Tyler McKee (Passenger, My Good Neighbor), and featuring a stellar performance from Austin Polley from the Super Action Rock band Mass Driver, the film was nominated for 7 awards at the festival including Best Writing, Best Directing, Best Actor, and Best Twist. The film also features amazing SFX/Make-Up work by the legendary Erik Jackson of Scarebear Makeup.
