We recently released our short horror film " from darkness" and I wanted to share some things about it! I'm going to do a video on this too!
But, I'll start here. First things first, this was our first short horror film and although we have done a lot of documentary type filming in the past, shooting the horror film was completely different! We learned a lot from this shoot.
The first thing we learned was it, difficult to work with children on set Who'd of known eh..
The original "script" had lines in it for "Lillie" to say however, when it came to the post production of the footage, we have to remove the lines, as no matter what we did it just didn't sound right. So, we decide to go with sounds instead.
We took sound effects, music, and other effects and made it our task to make a "found Footage" Type video instead.
Lillie did such a good job on the shoot, It was a shame about the lines that we had to take out because she did a good job with them but the film seemed to evolve as we went along and the lines no longer worked.
Check out the film here:
So to recap on our experience for our first short film! It was certainly a learn curve for us and a change from the type of filming we are used too but it was so much fun to do! And we are already starting on out next short film for 2021! Not to forget our BIG feature film for 2022!
I would like to tank everyone who has been supportive so far and the people who enjoyed "From Darkness" and of course Lillie-Rose for her brilliant acting and what she brought to the short film!
