Remembering the Blair Witch Project and it’s effect on Hollywood

1-The-Blair-Witch-Project

I still remember it like it was yesterday. Me and my film school buddies were all in line at the Enzian Theater in Orlando Fla, to catch The Blairwitch Project! The air was thick with anticipation, not only for the mystery surrounding this movie, but because the movie was created by Florida film students from UCF.

This short documentary, presented by Academy Originals, chronicles that time in 1999 when two ambitious directors Eduardo Sanchez and Daniel Myrick, set out to create something the world had never seen before. Little did they know the style and formula for The Blairwitch Project would become the standard for science fiction and horror films for the next twenty years and then some.
