As promised here is my horror scene clip. I had a ton of fun doing this and stressed the f**k outta myself doing it. I had a couple of free hours today when the kids were at school so I was determined to get this shot and edited so I could post it tonight. I like the final product. I rehearsed 3 times and then set out to get this all in one continual shot. It clocks in at 4:31; I wanted to try and throw everyone off as to what I was doing!! I felt even more pressure after watching AutumnForest and Steve S’s horror scenes. AutumnForest did a great little creepy scene in the vein of William Castle while Steve’s scene is more in line with the old John Carpenter. My scene? Think of it as the Lloyd Kaufman/Troma clip of the group!! LOL
I shot this one on my MacBook Pro camera and edited it on iMovie. I wanted to play around with the final picture but just ran outta time. The final product looks a little washed out but I kinda like that. I also wanted to edit some cool sounds in but that was a little beyond my abilities. This was the first time I ever shot and edited on video (I worked with super 8 film back in undergrad where I was a film minor), and I didn’t have the luxury of time on my side to play around today. But I had such a blast that I guarantee this won’t be the last scene I ever shoot!!! And let me extend this offer to everyone out there reading this: If you ever get the “bug” and you wanna shoot a small horror scene (30 seconds to 5 minutes long) I’d love to post them. Just make sure they’re horror-related!!
Enough stalling; here’s my scene titled Interruption (and I wanna hear what you think):
Do like I did and
