Review: Phometrica Redacted (2016) - Directed by Chris Collier (November 2016)

Phometrica Redacted - HD Trailer from 24 Foot Square on Vimeo.
Phometrica Redacted (2016) - Directed by Chris Collier is a very stylish short film. It runs for 15 Minutes and we follow a young man's mind into the macabre! Not for the squeamish.

Storyline: "Jose follows his partner, expecting to discover an affair. However, following a nocturnal meeting in an old cinema his expectations quickly change."

Without giving too much away, there are some practical special effects in PR with clever, paranoid camera tricks and traits to tell the story here. One could imagine The X-Files tv series and I could imagine David Cronenberg would be proud! The film was also known as Larva.

The curious public can Rent/Buy the short on Amazon.

Review: Harvest (2016) - Directed by Chris Collier (November 2016)

Harvest Trailer - 4K from 24 Foot Square on Vimeo.
Poor Luna Wolf is trapped, wounded and tied in a cupboard before trying to escape. Who has done this? Why is she in this position? Find out in Harvest (2016) - a mini horror/thriller short film from Chris Collier.

The film is on Amazon to Buy/Rent and in this day and age, it's a positive way to get short films out there on a platform seen by film watchers. Harvest was shot on 4k Cameras and sets up a story that could be seen in a Hammer Horror film with modern day make-up effects and gore thrown in!

It's an enjoyable, nicely paced little film by Chris Collier - who is also working on Salient Minus Ten as the Sound Department. It's probably not for the squeamish, but there are some nice settings and locations as the film goes on. Luna Wolf is a strong female lead in which others can look up to and see what the modern scream queen can do.

Suspenseful and worth a peek. Collier knows how to build suspense on a low budget and basic locations. I enjoyed his efforts with his filming/acting team.

Review: Border Patrol (2016) - Directed by Dee McCullay (November 2016)

Border Patrol (2016) is a short apocalyptic film directed by Dee McCullay and written by Andrea Dean Van Scoyoc. It features a duo trying to protect themselves, armed with guns and scopes from an on-coming threat on the ground. The reveal comes later...

BP features some what-looks-like drone shots. Nice Ariel views and locations perfectly out of The Walking Dead. It would be nice to see this sorta film extended as it only runs under 4 minutes including credits. Some nice landscapes. It features some usage of quick editing and nifty sound effects!!
