Simon Rumley has joined the jury of Shortcuts to Hell 2.

Run by FrightFest, Horror Channel, Movie Mogul and Wildseed Studios, the second edition of the short film competition will see the winner get their film produced by Movie Mogul and Wildseed with a minimum cash production fund of £20,000.

Rumley, who has just completed post production on The Last Word, joins Rosie Fletcher, acting editor of Total Film, Horror Channel’s Emily Booth, FrightFest director Paul McEvoy, Wildseed’s creative director Jesse Cleverly and Movie Mogul’s John Shackleton on the jury.

“As an arena to experiment, innovate and, ultimately, learn a craft, short film-making always will be the lifeblood of film-making,” said Rumley. “It’s great, therefore, to have a competition such as this to give aspiring film-makers an added incentive to try and realise their goal.”

Entry deadline for the competition is July 22, with full details available on the official site.
