It was a really exciting experience to write and direct this film. We shot it over one night which is not a lot of time with a crew of four persons but we made the best out of it.
It is amazing all that can happen in one night, such as our location being surrounded by cops helicopter and cars as one of the neighbor called the police because they heard screaming in the garage during the scene where the lead actress gets attacked by the monster. Lucky enough their were cool cops and let us go on even tho the place was covered with fake blood!
It was a great learning experience. I’m really grateful to have had the chance to work with an awesome team, everyone was really involved in the project.
The most challenging part of making the film was the editing as my laptop kept crashing every 15min. But with a lot of patience and time the film finally came through.
I’m hoping to have the opportunity to show my film to some live audiences and get feed backs, good or bad. I think that it is one of the beauty of being a filmmaker is to see the reactions and comments of an audience.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
