It’s by no means perfects, but I’m proud of my accomplishment.
I don’t know where this came from, I opened my mind to creativity and now it has manifested. I don’t even like horror very much, usually I get too scared, but as I thought of what viable set and props I had it became apparent that would be the most successful route to take. I created this as campy B horror film.
My main influences were: Kill List, Maniac
I also took some influence from the music of Marilyn Manson, and Rasputina.
It’s still lacking some essential scenes and components, which I hope to have shot and edited by this weekend. I ran into some compatibility issues with Premiere (I was working on a newer version, and then started working on an older version and there was no way to open it with that). I re-cut all the video components into their little pieces to manipulate them more effectively, but the audio layers were all mixed and I was unable to remove some effects I dislike. I hope to finish recording the spoken audio tracks (all in one go, for consistency of audio quality) to layer on top, and redo some additional audio from my original tracks.
Over all this project would have gone much more smoothly if I had filmed before Thanksgiving and spent time editing then, however I was unable to do that and I fear the final product will look rough as a result. It’s been a learning experience certainly, layering more complex things than I’ve ever tried to do before. If I had time to work on special effects I think I could be very good.
I’m already planning another video to be shot over the coming summer. My friend has always admired cinema and has a good story board for a post-apocalyptic dystopian horror movie, I’m so excited to collaborate with a large group of interested people.
In the wake of this sad event I was very pleased to stumble across this article, which essentially mythbusts a lot of murky information circulating about the facts of the case. All sources are cited, and paint a clear picture of what took place.
This is a clip from my next short film. it’s still rough, but as of right now I’m fairly satisfied with the direction I’m taking. I fully plan on layering more components into this, but here are the humble beginnings.
1. (After being asked, “What are your plans today?”) “Nothing.”
Contrary to popular belief, “nothing” can actually mean something. Technically the homebody could’ve said “I do have plans” because doing absolutely nothing was in fact their itinerary. Lounging around lazily? Yeah, I penned that in my schedule weeks ago, and I’m currently knee deep in nothing, aka unavailable.
2. “… …”
^^That’s complete silence, which is usually the response you get when you text or call a homebody with some kind of invitation that they don’t want to officially decline.
3. “Hey what’s up? Sorry, I was sleeping when you text/called me!”
This is the lie that follows the complete silence mentioned in the previous point. You’ll get this several hours after your initial attempt at contact, when the homebody is…
