Risks and challenges
Wet Paint Pictures originally embarked on a quest to make a short Friday the 13th fan film true to the franchise’s iconic history while putting on our own unique stamp of thrills and intensity. What we discovered during months of pre-production and principal photography is that we have a longer story to tell. The independent film “Voorhees” is now heading towards what is likely a feature-length production. This in itself is an unexpected challenge but one that was not planned but born of the creative process.
An ongoing challenge we face is remaining true to the historic genre of the franchise so that fans will enjoy the film while also providing them a fresh perspective on the story. Fans have certain expectations for a film of this type and we will follow in those footsteps. At the same time, we are adding a unique twist that offers fans additional depth and texture to the characters.
All of our horror scenes are done utilizing practical effects. We want these moments to jump off the screen and bring the same chills that fans have seen for decades in theatres. At the same time, achieving what we consider screen worthy moments involves a great deal of trial and error and finding the right mix of lighting, camera angles and body parts takes a great deal of time and effort. In addition, and as you can see from the pictures in the video, the locations for “Voorhees” consist of numerous abandoned structures in various states of disrepair. While this provides for an enticing movie set with myriad opportunities to bring you true cinematic horror, it is also leads to some dangerous circumstances for both cast and crew. Safety is our number one goal and every day we are filming we have to constantly be alert for unintended risk.
Wet Paint Pictures thanks you for considering supporting our final push to complete this independent film. We truly hope to scare the hell out of you!
