Dutch student scores with YouTube thriller

A Dutch student has been approached three times by Hollywood film producers because of the success of a short film he made and placed on YouTube, reports Nos tv.

Tim Smit studies natural sciences at Nijmegen University and made the nine-minute sci-fi horror film for the GoShort film festival.
What’s in the Box, has been viewed almost half a million times. Nos says film giant 20th Century Fox is one of the companies which has approached Smit.
