Hey guys! I'm new here but glad I found this forum.

My new to filmmaking in general but have always had a passion for film especially in the realm of horror. Just recently, I took a risk and just did my first short horror film.

I recently completed a little 2 minute short for a contest with Chiller TV. I didn't win...but I got out of my comfort zone and took a risk. I LOVED IT, though I told myself I should just give up and quit.

I realized after feedback from multiple people, my story for this short was very weak. Hard to follow.

Putting myself out there with all my mistakes but wanted to share it with you guys and get your thoughts in it.

This was shot with a Canon 1100d and edited with Final Cut Pro:

It kept my interest for the duration. Doing anything is better than doing nothing! Enjoy the process and never quit! Best regards, Zak
