Universal Pictures have also announced that 25-year-old Southern California production coordinator Christopher Ell won the grand prize in its "Slug it Out!": Slither TV Spot Contest. Coinciding with the promotional launch of the new genre-bending horror film Slither, the aspiring filmmaker nabbed the contest prize of $25,000 and was rewarded with an airing of his spot during NBCís top-rated My Name is Earl, March 30.
Ellís creation was chosen from hundreds of entries as the top creative by Slitherís director James Gunn and one of its producers, Paul Brooks. Online visitors to the filmís official web site, www.slithermovie.net, were given hands-on exposure to the world of theatrical motion picture advertising as they assembled the ultimate TV commercial to promote the film. Visitors took Universal-supplied assets including clips, music cues, sound FX and graphics and built a customized version of a Slither TV spot.
