Bad movies aren’t just for theaters anymore. In this digital age, even stinky shorts get their due thanks to Stinkdance (http://www.streambox.com), a celebration of the crappiest shorts on the web.
This year, Stinkdance named the first winner of their online film festival â€œThe Hole Where CDs Come From,â€ by Larry Housel of Stow, Ohio. Having repulsed enough Streambox visitors to take home the prize in overwhelming fashion, Housel receives a singing animatronic dead fish as his Stinkdance Grand Prize.
The winning film, an out-of-focus, poorly scripted, directed and acted black and white short all done in one shot, was produced as a â€œcommercialâ€ and sent to a mail order CD company as a form of â€œpaymentâ€ for monies owed. The nine other nominees will receive collectible Stinkdance baseball caps as consolation prizes.
