My Lonely Me

This gallery contains 1 photo.

A slightly abstract musical about a young woman uncovering mysteries of her childhood.

Reiga (Sabrina Dickens) is a music student suffering from flashbacks and hallucinations, particularly of a little girl. As the movie goes on, it gets darker and even rather creepy.

The little girl is Reiga’s younger self, who helps her uncover family secrets and come to terms with the tragedies of her past that she has mentally blocked out… Continue reading

Sunshine (short film)

This gallery contains 3 photos.

This is an independent short film by Scottish filmmaker Michael Tracy, who also wrote and produced it.

It’s a horror-drama, which, based on the trailer looks like it could certainly be a thrilling watch.
It is a struggle to make a film independently, so there are a lot of things you can forgive. However, it’s a…

Pizza Shop

This gallery contains 2 photos.

A “raunchy off-color comedy” is an accurate description of Pizza Shop – a cringe-worthy and slow-paced film.

Locked (Short Film)

This gallery contains 1 photo.

I wondered what I was going to be watching when I first saw it actually…
This short film is about a man who calls a lock smith to get him out of a compromising situation.

It is tastefully done and leaves most of it to the imagination – making a bigger impact! The clever thing about the film is that it is based in one room with only two characters and no music, yet it still tells a convincing story.

It will be interesting to see the final cut, so that I could comment on the lighting and audio. But certainly a solid effort was put into acting a scripting – a great start… Continue reading
