When I told Andrew that I wanted to shoot on 16mm for my thesis project but had never shot on film before, he revealed to me that he had some film in his freezer. Thus began the night-long shoot of “Call to Forehead”:
This and “Plastix Ultimate” occupy a similar space, as both were shot on the fly with a significant reason for their existence being that Andrew and I were bored. That being said, I think both projects turned out stupendously (In fact, SPOILER ALERT, there are some murmurs in the wind that there may actually be a “Call To Forehead” feature coming soon). Andrew did the majority of the editing of the piece, and it responsible for so much of its grindhouse charm. Even though we had a whole short worked out and shot, I do feel like the boiling down of the piece into a 1 minute teaser not only serves the story, but also covers up some problems we may have had with lighting, acting, overall production.
This is also perhaps the spookiest film I’ve made so far, and thus begins out foray into October: The Spookiest of all month. Stay tuned for more of out Spook-tacular.
