Immediately following the two year journey for my short film Trade, Matt Duggan approached me about shooting an episode for his online series, Man Vs.
This one was a Halloween release entitled Man Vs. Horror, a play on recent torture porn genre successes such as Saw. The real challenge was making the episode somewhat dark and haunting, while keeping it somewhat funny and true to the show’s roots, and less than two minutes in length. The lessons I learned from shooting and editing this webisode informed a great deal of the style and aesthetic choices (or non-choices) of the project that followed it–the short horror comedy Written By.
