The Collection in 3D - Award Winning Stereoscopic Short Film

Running Time: 06:00

Genre: Horror

Release Date: May 2012

The Collection on IMDB


Hanging around with the collection obsessed Professor Kit Young isn’t quite what research assistant Julian Lamb expected.

The Collection (3D) is a short horror film produced as part of the 2012 leg of The 48 Hour Film Project. Written, filmed and edited over the weekend of 18th -20th of May 2012 this is the first 3D entry to the 48 Hour Film Project outside of the US.

The film premiered at the Cameo Picturehouse in Edinburgh on 22nd May in glorious anaglyph 3D and was included in the 48 Hour Film Project 5th year “Best of” DVD!

The cast include the brilliant Nick Cheales as the obsessive collector Professor Kit Young and an equally strong performance from Frasier Fulton as his young research assistant Julian Lamb. Nick and Fraser are scheduled to work together again later in 2012. The crew were again dragged in front of the cameras as extra’s including Dale Peet as the rather creepy “Pigboy”, Rhiannon Grist’s muddy feet and Andrew Murchie’s pierced bleeding brow!

The score is provided by Neil Warden who once again managed to deliver a brilliantly suitable soundtrack enhancing the film’s menacing mood.

The final film had a running time of 6 minutes.


Seen the film? How about you get the shirt?

At the time we offered a whole heap of exclusive t-shirts, bags and other gear all with Thomas’ fantastic hand drawn poster design featuring our grotesque Pigboy character at his best!
