      Anyone can enter the contest by uploading their video to Twitter and/or Vine, with the hashtag #6SecondScare, and by tagging and following The Crypt (@fearthecrypt).  There is no limit to the number of entries, and previous work can be submitted. Roth encouraged users to think outside the box when coming up with their best idea.

    “I wanted to create a global contest that anyone with a smart phone can enter. You don't need a big budget or stars or makeup effects, and with the time limit you have to be creative. It's not about being over the top or looking professional, whoever comes up with the most creative six second scare wins. The difference now is that your work will be seen by the amazing judges who have generously donated their time to support budding new filmmakers. It doesn't matter if you're from Iowa or Iceland, Brazil or Brussels, if you make a short on your phone for the #SixSecondScare we will see it. I remember the feeling of being 22 with a short film, dying to get anyone in the industry to watch it - that's all you want when you're starting out, and now we're able to give anyone with a dream of directing that chance,” Said Mr. Roth.
