JABB Pictures set to unleash The Collective Volume 3

The folks at JABB Pictures certainly don't hang around. The fine folk that brought us The Collective and The Collective Vol 2, just last November, are already gearing up to bring us the third volume, entitled 10 Minutes To Live. Set to premiere at the Days of the Dead convention in Atlanta on March 9th, Volume 3 will once again feature 10 short movies, which each run to around 10 minutes, all with the same synopsis. Volume 3 has taken a feminine approach with each of the 10 shorts having been either written by or directed by one of the fairer sex. The full line-up can be found below. 

If you have seen either Volume 1 or 2 then you will know that this 3rd volume is something to be excited about. The previous two entries have contained some cracking movies and I don't doubt that we will get treated to more of the good stuff this time around.

Welcome to The Collective V.3

JABB pictures scoured the independent filmmaking scene looking for 10 of the best female writers and directors for this one of a kind collection. Proving that the independent horror genre is not just a boys club, The Collective V.3 features 10 short films all from a different independent female writer or director. Keeping true to The Collective’s winning format, all 10 films in this collection center around the same idea. The theme this time around? 10 Minutes to Live. It was up to each filmmaker to decide what this meant to them. While the stories all center around the same basic premise, they all have their own unique storyline and characters. The films range from tender to terrifying with each filmmaker putting their own unique twist on the idea. With The Collective V.3 the ladies have most definitely shown they are a force to be reckoned with.

Home Security is the story of a crooked security salesman who is prepping for a big score. The film features Emmanuel Carter as “Robert” and L.E. Bradford as “Mia.” It’s got a nice twist

'JOG' Is a short film shot in a first person perspective. 'Uni' is routinely going for a jog, but begins to have this eerie feeling that they are being followed. Constantly looking over their shoulder, 'Uni' starts seeing some
bloody, disturbing, walking nightmares every where they go, all the while with the feeling that they are being followed....as the visions become worse and worse 'Uni' has this overwhelming feeling that they are being chased by death.

The world we live in in cyclical. Life begins and ends. Over and over. Often without notice or pause. This film is an artistic view of that process.
