Frustrated with how the SHINPADS short film is going, Joe convinces Adam, Corri, and Laura to head off into the woods for the weekend and shoot a found footage movie to capitalize on the current Hollywood trend.

Did You Know?
In the opening scene, Joe mentions the Los Angeles Screamfest Film Festival in his list of possible places to send their found footage movie to and Adam retorts with "what the hell is Screamfest?" This was an inside joke for the crew as HOLLISTON editor Josh Ethier had recently had his film ALMOST HUMAN rejected by the smaller film festival. A few months later, ALMOST HUMAN would go on to be selected for the Toronto International Film Festival, one of the biggest and most prestigious film festivals in the world. See more
What was that?

Foxes don't laugh like Hobgoblins.
When something's funny they do.
