The Stillborn (2017)

Horror

Something terrible has happened. One brother has gone missing and something evil now stalks the other.

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 and Adam Scovell, The Stillborn utilizes a minimalist narrative about the acceptance of failure and flat cinematography to convey an unnerving viewing experience.
