CHAPTER 6

Screamless

Technology is evolving at such a rapid rate that it's easy to get left behind and unfortunately for Ghostface this statement holds truest. He learned that the technology that he once used to slay his victims has now helped his "victims" gain the edge over him and he's had enough!

A Classic... twist

 

Imagine a scenario where all the classic slasher villains are placed into a modern technological world and are unable to use their, recently, outdated techniques to slay their victims. Seeking refuge, they attend group therapy sessions with other classic slasher villains to discuss their hardships of luring their victims in for the kill. Ghostface, the newcomer of the group, would deliver a powerful monologue explaining his recent failures.

Flawed or flawless?

We had a single costume, Ghostface, but were unable to get the other costumes by the time production began. Production took place over 3 days in 3 different locations and each day we focused on a different section of the film. Usually, we will encounter many problems during production but this was one scenario where everything went flawlessly and the only negatives were the late hours we returned home after wrapping up production.

Necessary refinements

Although “Screamless” was a success when it first premiered, I felt the film could vastly improve with advanced lighting techniques in certain scenes. So a year after filming the original version of “Screamless”, I called for reshoots and the results were night and day! I was very pleased with how refined the remastered version of “Screamless” looked. This left me anxious for the future and excited to see how my cinematography techniques will continue to improve over time.

The adventure Continues...

I knew I had grown as a filmmaker over the course of a year but, until I compared the original clips to the remastered clips, side by side, I didn’t realize how much I had grown. Even the way I approached filming the exact same scene a year apart was drastically different. It was encouraging to see that all the time and effort I’ve put into learning and growing have paid off in some way. Here is to another year of crafting my skills!
