Interview | Empty Nester

A woman has recently become the sole inhabitant of her long time home - or has she?. Directed by Nicholas Anderson. 1 - How did the initial idea for the film come about? The original idea of the story came way before production started. I had just moved out of my childhood home and had gone to college, making my mother an empty nester. She claimed that she began seeing ghosts around the house and when she was sleeping, and the rest of my family joked that it would make a good horror film. Then I got the opportunity to get my hands on some equipment a few years later and it all cam

Head Burst the new film of Savas Ceviz with Max Riemelt

Markus, a good-looking, likable and respected architect, is a paedophile. Bodies of little boys excitehim. He suffers tremendously because of this inclination. He tortures himself for it and is disgusted byhimself. Nevertheless, the arousal is there. And there is nothing he can do about it.

Interview | Dream Café

Dream Café Short Film By Dasha Khritankova 1 - Tell us about your first film “Dream Café”. How did you get the idea to make this film? Around the time when I began writing “Dream Café”, I found myself and many of my friends going through a similar struggle - we all were working so hard to achieve our goals, that there simply was no room for balance between career and other aspects of live (personal relationships, friends and family, hobbies, etc.) Originally, when I found myself in this situation, I thought this problem is only something that artists encounter, because of the

“THE HUNTED” by Giancarlo Orellana

It is important to mention some interesting points about this fiction short film. First and foremost, we have to mention the great work carried out by make-up artists since there are some very close shots which last quite a long time -perhaps longer than expected for the plot.

The Hunted has the capacity to show us how the narration is going to be just by the first shoots. The setting and voice-over remind us of Frank Mi

“Bxautiful Nightmarx” by Brittny Williams & Juanita Ingram

During the first 60 seconds of the short film "Beautiful Nightmare," the director reveals us the techniques that will be used to narrate the story. The 9:46 minutes film teaches us an unpredictable character and willing to do everything, which makes it essential for the plot. Regarding the script, we could add that there are a few moments where the dialogues are "mixed", shifting the central conflict off its axis. A resource becomes a conflict; for some moments the attention is focused on "the sandwich" rather than on the real problem. It is easy to fall into these lapses, as a result of
