The Laughing Window [35mm Short Thriller]

Struggling writer, Richard Porter, is facing a deadline that could change his life. Huddled away in his dark, murky apartment, Richard sweats over the last few pages of his novel, one that has the opportunity to become published. But, in the midst of his poorly timed writer's block, he is faced with the constant rattling ambience of his home and the sinister creaking of his bedroom window.*

I just started shooting this short film of mine called, "The Laughing Window." It's a very 'Twilight Zone' driven thriller and I'm VERY excited about it.

To add to my excitement, we have a full set built on a stage, we're shooting on 35mm film, and I'm working with an amazing team.

We have some outstanding production design on this project and some stunning practical effects.

I'm thrilled to be able to share this with you guys through my Production Vlogs, all the way up until we release the final film.

Check out behind the scenes on "Day One" of our shoot, here:

I like to see all this behind the scene stuff. You got a good set and it looks really great. You got some nice looking equipment too. The stills look good. It is nice that you got to shoot in film.

I gotta say, being able to shoot on 35mm film was an amazing experience. In fact, it may be the only time in my filmmaking endeavors that I'll be able to. So, in this vlog I wanted to throw in some glory shots of the beautiful Panavision camera we got to shoot with.

Also known as pornography for filmmakers...

We're going on a little post-production hiatus from the vlogs.

So, I've decided to leave you with another compilation of bts clips!

We'll be back soon with more behind the scenes from post-production and more.
