The Stillborn – New 2017 Short Film!

The official movie poster for The Stillborn (2017)
Today I am proud to announce my latest short film, The Stillborn!

The Stillborn is a Super 8 short film created entirely on Kodak VISION3 50D Color Negative film stock. The widescreen aspect ratio was achieved using a Panasonic AG-LA7200 anamorphic adapter. Featuring Jack Saunders as Michael, with make-up by Tyler Marcotte and Sonnia Robinson as Production Assistant.

This short acts as an artistic rebirth of a now cancelled project titled Red Timbers, a short horror film intended to be shot in the summer of 2016, but scheduling conflicts prevented the film from being made. Inspired by the works of Yasujirō Ozu, The Stillborn utilizes a minimalist narrative about the acceptance of failure and flat cinematography to convey an unnerving viewing experience.

The film is currently scheduled to hit over 20 select film festivals as soon as possible. Acceptance to these festivals remains to be seen, but as soon as the film gets accepted to any, I will be certain to post another news piece about it! After the festivals are over, the film will be uploaded online for all to see. Big thanks to everyone out there who has helped bring this film to life! Stay tuned for more news on The Stillborn, as well as its upcoming worldwide release. Until then, enjoy some stills from the short film below:
