Odyssey looking for thrilling videos

Submitted by Odyssey Dance Theatre

Odyssey Dance Theatre is putting out a call for entries to submit short video segments to be shown during the company’s production of "Thriller" this October.

Odyssey Dance Theatre’s production of "Thriller" has become a Halloween tradition. Full of scares and laughs from all your favorite horror characters, "Thriller" performs this fall with over 40 sold out performances in seven different locations. A unique collection of dance-driven vignettes, "Thriller" has also included several short videos as part of its presentation. Creator and Director Derryl Yeager is excited to open up the show to young film makers who, he is sure, will bring a fresh and inventive perspective to the show.

Odyssey Dance Theatre will perform "Thriller" in Park City at the Egyptian Theatre from Sept. 27 through Oct. 6.

Videographers should keep in mind that this is a family show, so no nudity or R rated language or material please.
