SILENTLY WITHIN YOUR SHADOW, 14min, UK, Horror/Thriller
Directed by Scott Lyus

As their relationship grows, Lucette’s obsession for ventriloquism and her dummy Hugo starts to strain her relationship with Jace. To Luctette Hugo is more than just a dummy, he’s her best friend and represents her ambition as an artist, to her, he’s very much real.

Silently Within Your Shadow – Director’s Statement

Silently Within Your Shadow is my attempt at creating a story driven horror film, with strong characters, that doesn’t rely on blood and gore.

I wanted to dig into the heart of an artist, in our case a ventriloquist performer, and see how deep her love for her art ran; and explore the effects on her relationship with her boyfriend and the horror that provides.

-Scott Lyus

Directed by Ronnie Cramer

Six-hundred-five film clips are assembled and used to create a piece of electronic music. As the visual component appears in the center of the screen, the original analog audio is sent to the left channel while it is simultaneously converted into digital music data and sent to the right channel. The digital data is also transposed into traditional musical notation and displayed on the screen as it is converted. The film includes an animated ‘chalkboard’ introduction that explains the entire process.
