ARV-3 a FAN FILM by Timid Monster!! #GetInvolved

ARV-3 by Cameo Renae

I adore Cameo Renae and thought that it was so cool that her book ARV-3 is being made into a fan film by Timid Monster, who have won several awards for their other short films!! Super exciting!! Check out the trailer and see how you can get involved!

An action-packed, thrilling fan film based on Cameo Renae’s bestselling dystopian novel, ARV-3.


Timid Monster is a sci-fi/fantasy filmmaking team made up of Dan Baker, Rachel M Taylor, and Katie Baker from Memphis, TN.

We are pairing up with one of our favorite fantasy authors Cameo Renae to make a fan film for her most recent book, ARV-3.

ARV-3 is about a girl named Abigail Park who has lived her whole life in an underground bunker after a nuclear fallout destroys the planet. After 13 years, Abigail and her family believe it is finally safe to go to the surface again. However, when they emerge from underground, they discover that it isn’t as safe as they had hoped. The government-issued vaccine that was meant to keep the people safe on the surface caused a mutation, changing the humans into hostile creatures called Arvies. Forced to fight for her life, Abi struggles to prove her strength while wrestling with newfound feelings for her best friend, Finn.



Even more than the opportunity to explore new fantasy worlds, we love stories with a strong message.

This film is about change, and we know from experience how completely terrifying that can be. It’s difficult to let the past go and move on to what lies ahead, and we believe that stories have a hand in encouraging us as humans to do that.


We need to raise $7,500 to make this film come to life. The money will go to the costs of production equipment, cast and crew, prosthetics for the zombie-like Arvy, and production design.

We are bringing on board Hollywood veteran Matt Singer, famous for his prosthetic work on Buffy the Vampire SlayerAngel, and Star Trek: Nemesis, to make sure the Arvy is done the right way.

The Timid Monster team will be dedicating their time and efforts to the project and putting all funds into the production of the short.

    Hi Melissa, thank you for posting this interview and for the review! I really appreciate it. Hope you had a fun Halloween. I enjoyed looking through your Halloween photos. Great costumes! I was all set to play the Mad Hatter as I was passing out candy tonight, but the storm threw me off and I've been behind on everything. There's always next year, right? Happy Halloween & thanks again!
