The Innkeeper of a bed and breakfast is shaken by woman's scream in the middle of the night. Now he must face an unknown danger.
My first short after graduating from the New York Film Academy is ready to go. "Unseen" is a short film that tells the story of a Innkeeper who lives by himself running a bed and breakfast. The farmhouse turned b&b lies alone on a stretch of road filled only by woods, the house, and the barn that resides behind it. One night after a day like any other, he hears what he thinks is a woman's scream from the woods.
We need funding for rental of lights, camera, equipment, location rental, and boarding the crew and actors near the location. We will be scouting upstate for the right spot. The donations will also be used for the post production process and film festival submissions.
A few notes on the style of the film. We will only be using three or four lenses to shoot the entire film. Hitchcock used mainly a 50mm lens to shoot PSYCHO since the lens most closely mirrors the human eye. With this I feel it will pull the audience into the film. I enjoy films where you cant tell the camera is there because it is used so efficiently that the effect is seamless.
Pacing and mood will be of the highest concentration as well. We want to create a sense of isolationism and tension. From the location to the color and acting, it will (hopefully) go towards building a believable and tension filled situation.
Have a question? If the info above doesn't help, you can ask the project creator directly.
