Producers of the instant sensation SHARKNADO are gearing up to start production on the next entry to the MEGA SHARK series, MEGA SHARK VS MECHA SHARK (written by the always friendly Jose Prendes, THE HAUNTING OF WHALEY HOUSE), and reeeeeallly want to kill you. No, really,..they do. One lucky fan of the series is going to be chosen to win a walk-on role, complete with they’re own death scene. Sounds fun to me! Read on for the official info:
he Asylum is excited to announce its latest fan contest: one devoted fan of the MEGA SHARK franchise will win a walk-on role, including a death scene, in MEGA SHARK VS. MECHA SHARK. Entrants must prove that they are the most devoted MEGA SHARK fan by presenting photographic or video evidence of their fandom, plus a brief description of themselves and why they deserve to win. One winner will receive a two-day trip to Los Angeles, including air fare and lodging, and a walk-on role in the film.
What qualifies as “proof” of ultimate fan devotion? Anything. The Asylum will evaluate photos and videos sent in by our fans of body art, painting, sculpture, music, and every other kind of fan tribute imaginable. The contest will be judged by employees of The Asylum based on creativity, intensity, and displayed level of enthusiasm for MEGA SHARK. That’s it. It’s open-ended, it’s subjective, and it’s entirely dependent on what our fans end up turning in as evidence of their deep and abiding passion for MEGA SHARK and The Asylum. Anything is possible; anything, even pre-existing fan art and the like, will qualify, as long as it is demonstrably the original work of the entrant.
Submissions must be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5pm PST on July 30. Participants must be available August 1 through August 15. For contest rules and details, visit http://www.theasylum.cc/blog/2013/07/mega-shark-3-fan-contest/.
The MEGA SHARK series began with MEGA SHARK VS. GIANT OCTOPUS (2009), starring Deborah Gibson, Lorenzo Lamas, and Vic Chao. It was released on DVD and VOD and quickly became a cult hit. The 2010 follow-up, MEGA SHARK VS. CROCOSAURUS, starred Jaleel White and Gary Stretch. Love of MEGA SHARK runs deep: in the past, fans of the MEGA SHARK franchise have shown us everything from entire galleries of original fan art to full-back tattoos of Mega Shark and his cephalopod foe.
So, how about it?
