Books can activate the imagination - but are these visions products of the mind or something more sinister? ​


This gothic horror short was shot entirely on 8mm film, using a Revere Eye-Matic CA5 wind-up camera from 1958. I purchased the camera and then devised this short as a means of testing it. This meant that for the entire shoot, which lasted one full day, we were unsure if we were even capturing any images.


YouTube's compression did not play well with the natural film grain and gate weave, so for best picture quality, check it out on Vimeo. Stay tuned later this week for an in-depth making of, with an exposure(!) of the film process.

Last May, we had the great joy of participating in the Washington DC 48 Hour Film Project for the first time. We wrote, shot, and edited this film in one blurry weekend, finishing the competition cut in the back of the car on the way to the venue and turning it in one minute before the deadline!


Buddies had a successful screening at the competition and was even nominated for a couple awards, but we knew it could be even better. So now, we're excited to present the extended edition of our award-losing short film - now with three minutes of extra material, improved visual effects, and a sub-woofer-wrecking score from Zach Clausson.


You're bored, you're stuck at home... Why not hang out with your Buddies?
