Fantastic Fest 2012 Welcome to HELLFJORD Norwegian Party

From the twisted, frost-bitten minds behind COLD PREY, DEAD SNOW along with Fantastic Fest favorite and YOU SAID WHAT? comes the distinctive -- and distinctly odd -- world of HELLFJORD, a seven-part Norwegian miniseries that will celebrate its world premiere at this year's Fantastic Fest. In honor of this magnificent gift from our friends of the North, we are holding the Norwegian rager to end all Norwegian ragers at The Highball, with plenty of Jarlsberg, Akvavit and all the rakfisk you can eat (and we can put away the rakfisk). We'll also be featuring surprise musical guests doling out face-shredding Norwegian-style black metal for your listening pleasure. Stop by for a cold one and enjoy a complimentary corpsepainting makeover!

  • The Fantastic Corpse - Short Film
    The Fantastic Corpse is a short film project based on the exquisite corpse collaborative method. Dell Precision and AMD are working with creative content company Arts+Labor to bring five Fantastic Fest filmmakers together to create one short film, each filming an equal part, and continuing each others segment. The first director (Oren Carmi, GOLDBERG AND EISENBERG) created the first minute, and then passed on to the next filmmaker (Nacho Vigalondo, TIMECRIMES). When the third filmmaker tagged in (Jim Byrkit, COHERENCE), he was only allowed to watch what Nacho had created before making his segment. The fourth filmmaker (Matt Johnson, THE DIRTIES) could only see what the third filmmaker shot, and so on until Eugenio Mira (GRAND PIANO) completed the Fantastic Corpse. It was screened at the Fantastic Fest Awards Ceremony, a mere 5 days after it began. This is the story of the making of that incredible feat, powered by Dell Precision Workstations and AMD FirePro Technology. The film was 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.
