Boy do I have a special treat for you!!! My buddy, horror aficionado, loyal reader, and all around creative guy Steve S. shot and submitted a horror scene just for AnythingHorror.com!!! Among other things I’m glad to call Steve a friend … we went to high school together and both grew up in Southern New Jersey. Steve is also a designer, illustrator, animator and writer. Near the end of last year Steve sent me one of his scripts, Breach Point Castle. I had never read a script before and that one just immediately grabbed me. I know by their very natures scripts aren’t supposed to be as detailed as novels and short stories. The characters aren’t as fleshed out and the scenes aren’t as detailed. But damn Steve did an amazing job developing the story and really leaving me wanting to know more about every single character he wrote about.
Steve also runs 2 websites. PlasmicStudios.com showcases Steve’s work in the fields of web design, illustration, multimedia, and animation. His other site, MeMakeMonster.com is a crazy fun website where you can design your own creature and then put it on tshirts, hat, mugs, mouse pads, etc …. Check it out!!
If you’re a geek like me (and I think most of you are), then you’ll appreciate the technical info: Steve shot this scene by himself (he even catered it himself!!!) on a Panasonic HVX-200a with a Letus adapter. It’s a great looking scene that is really crisp and vibrant. Steve, brother; ya really did a phenomenal job!! Steve edited this scene on Final Cut Studio and created the audio with GarageBand. Wait until you hear the music accompanying the scene …. great soundtrack Steve. It really adds to the atmosphere. Without further delay, here’s Steve S’s Intrusion (and I promise I’m working on my scene. I’ve been playing around with some fake blood and trying to practice when the kids aren’t around …. I can’t afford to start them in therapy!!!):
