Production Background & Fun Facts: This short film was produced and shot while we were in production of a feature horror film. We used the same location as well, just different angles. This film was produced during an interesting time for ultra-low budget filmmaking due to the cross road in the camera manufacturing industry. DSLR wasn't accepted yet as a form to shoot movies. Camcorders were at their peak and the industry slowly made a shift to introduce more film friendly features on DSLR. This film was shot with the Panasonic HPX170 on P2 cards which at the time was fairly new as the industry started moving away from mini DV. Shot in 2 days Budget was around $500".
