Back in October, I had no intention of making another film for a while as I wanted to focus on writing features. When I started thinking about what to do as the final project for my graduate Cross-Platform Production course, I took the opportunity to scratch the itch and twist my assignment into a new horror short. Fast forward to December, after the shortest pre-production period I’ve ever set for myself, we started production on CAREGIVER. For me, this was not just another shoot, but a new challenge I set for myself as a filmmaker, taking on more hats on top of the million I usually wear. I’m extremely thankful for the awesome CAREGIVER cast and crew that really stepped up to help make this such a great experience. Looking forward to putting the film out there later in 2022.
I had the pleasure of attending the Highlands Horror Film Fest in Highlands, New Jersey this past weekend and was honored that MOMMA, DON’T GO won the award for Best Short Film! Located on the Jersey Shore, the festival had the perfect atmosphere and setting with awesome Halloween decorations. Thank you to festival director Rob Kneller and the festival team. I hope to return with a future project.
Thank you to Twelve Cabins for featuring Momma, Don’t Go and for the interview, where I discuss my relationship with the horror genre, my experience making the film and what’s next. Check out the interview below.
