All you need to know about: The Collective Vol 4 from Jabb Pictures

The Collective is back, and it’s better than ever.

The one of a kind short film collection featuring 10 – 10 minute short films

all based on the same theme has risen to a whole new level.

The lineup of filmmakers this time around is a who’s who

of up and coming horror directors in the indie scene.

The theme featured in The Collective V.4 is Emotions.

Each filmmaker was given a different emotion

to base their 10 minute short film around.

10 short films, each delving into a different piece of the human psyche.

Ranging from intimate to insane, the films featured on The Collective V.4

provide something Hollywood hasn’t had in a long time, heart.

The filmmakers featured on The Collective V.4 stand as proof

that it doesn’t take a huge budget to make a great film,

it only requires a huge imagination.

Welcome to The Collective V.4…

The Collective V.4 will make its debut at

Days of the Dead Indianapolis, IN July 6th 2012.

The Collective will have a vendor table set up at the show

and some of the filmmakers involved will be in attendance

to meet fans and discuss their films.

The World Premiere screening will be July 7th at 9:30 pm.

There will be a Q&A with the filmmakers involved following the screening.

Bryan Wolford has been a horror fan and has been wanting to be a filmmaker since he was very

young. To celebrate both of his loves he helped start the Drunken Zombie Podcast where he and

his fellow hosts talked about any horror film they could get their hands on. This translated into

them starting their own indie horror film festival where they aimed to introduce the horror

audience to new and fun indie films they might have never seen on their own. This motivated

him to finally become the filmmaker he always wanted to be and he created his first short film

Flash of Wire



Tag line

It is best never to anger a goddess


From the director of FERTILITY 2.0. comes FLASH OF WIRE. David Ross investigates the

curious German emotional term Schadenfreude: Obtaining joy from the suffering of others. The

film asks the question: When it comes to revenge– is once ever enough?

Apparently David can’t go on vacation in a foreign country without filming a movie. “Think of

the production values,” he said. “It will look just like a foreign film! It’s irresistible” While

spending three weeks on the island of Naxos in Greece, and grieving that he was not making a

film for THE COLLECTIVE IV, he researched island myths, and organized a small group of

villagers for a 2 day shoot. “No one understood a word I was saying– which strangely, felt very

familiar to my experiences working in the US.” Returning to the US he scheduled a one-day

shoot to finish the movie. “I am pretty sure that the distance of this location change will be a

record for me that may go unbeaten.” However David hopes to return to Naxos to film a feature

there someday.
