Reality Check (2015)

A 48-hour film challenge short, this took home "Best Technical" home for Director of Photography, Brandon Scott. 


Directed By: Brett Chapman

Per most 48-hour challenges, there were restrictions and requirements for this short. The prop was a pencil, a line of dialog and now, once again, we were given horror. Jordan Wippell & I came up with a "school shooting" short in order to try and show the desensitization we have towards the subject. 

After spending so much time collaborating with Jordan, the desire for shooting this film was to make it seem as if not based in reality and to do that we had to take inspiration from some very psychedelic movies . As a producer, I was committed to using a practical eye for the stabbing sequence, but it didn't need to look to real as the audience would soon find out.
