Behind The Scenes Video

Posted on Nov 9, 2010

Finally got around to editing that behind the scenes footage that was laying around, just in time for our 11-11-2010 screening at NYC Horror Film Fest. So if you were on the fence, we hope this helps bring you out for what surely will be a kickass night!

FilmThreat.com Reviews ‘Written By’

FilmThreat.com Homepage

“As a horror short, the film is true to the ambiguity and suspense that truly sells fear as opposed to just simple gore and surprise shocks. At 15 minutes, this could be a segment on a show like “The Twilight Zone” or “The Outer Limits,” and it works just as effectively.”

Man Vs. Cloverfield

Posted on Aug 20, 2009

Here’s a little ditty I shot for my Director buddy Matt Duggan. Matt asked me to be his Director of Photography, as well as to help Produce some episodes. In one weekend, we shot three episodes of the online series he created, Man Vs.

Budgets and equipment allocations are very barebones for these episodes. By stripping away the shoe polish and charging ourselves to shoot and finish quickly, we are able to spend most of our energy creating. To prepare for this episode, I watched Cloverfield a couple times so I could take cues instinctively. I’m very pleased with the end result, and thankful to Matt, Trevor, and Frank for bringing me in to their show.

Man Vs. Recession

Posted on Jun 28, 2009

Here’s a little ditty I shot for my Director buddy Matt Duggan. Matt asked me to be his Director of Photography, as well as to help Produce some episodes. In one weekend, we shot three episodes of the online series he created, Man Vs.

Budgets and equipment allocations are very barebones for these episodes. By stripping away the shoe polish and charging ourselves to shoot and finish quickly, we are able to spend most of our energy creating. To prepare for this episode, I watched a couple silent and early-era films. Then I put my own spin on Floyd’s death by opening the iris as he went into the light. That’s the type of magic that can only happen when you’ve got it all framed up, day-of. It was a happy little discovery, the kind I love.
