First Blood

Our entry in the 2017 24 Hour Film Horror Project (48 HFHP) in Houston, TX. Filmmakers had 48 hours to write and produce a short horror film (5-7 mins long).

Required elements were the character Jason (or Jacinda) Calmes a “know it all”, an umbrella and the line “Well that doesn’t look right!” Genres were selected at random. Our genre’s were Gothic/Vampire and Parody/Spoof Film. We combined the two for our final film. It was yet another mad scramble since we’re a two man team. This is the final higher res render put together with an army of compmuters and a couple tons of caffeine.
