LHS Short Film Screening Events
These events are a wonderful way to sample the talents of some of the best up and coming filmmakers around. Here’s just a small selection of films that we’ve recently screened:
Frank wakes up to find his wife dead but with no memory of what happened. He needs to know who killed her but an unseen hand may be guiding his dark fate.
Frank’s had enough. A spirit medium whose unique and grotesque method of channeling the dead is putting his own life at risk, he wants out. But others, in this world and the next, have plans of their own.
Part body horror, part crime thriller, part ghost story, The film is a unique tale of Supernatural Noir.
This film by Mycho Entertainment is a fine example of how you can make a great little film with no budget. Sara wakes in her tent in the middle of the night to find her boyfriend missing, but what is that noise outside and why is it coming closer? Things are starting to get ‘In Tents’.
Written and produced over 24 hours, In Tents is an experiment in bare bones production using minimal performers and locations to create a short, but chilling horror story. Shot in a living room in Milton Keynes UK.
The Clown Attacks
Exploring what happens ‘when good clowns go bad’, this film takes a less-than-serious look at the rise of ‘scary clown’ sightings around the UK.
Neck and Neck
In the marital bed the surreal sensuality enveloping Othello and Desdemona is disturbed by a dangling telephone. As the phone pours poison into Othello’s mind he transforms into a different entity with detrimental consequences for Desdemona.
Lady And The Tooth
When the most precious commodity in society are teeth there is only one way to conquer love…
Framed tells the story of a security guard covering for his friend in an abandoned warehouse who find’s out just how dangerous it is to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.
The Night Whispered
Three friends miss the last tram home and walk through a dark country park. Uninvited, a sinister gentleman and his dog join them. As they walk, one hears a whisper, turns and vanishes. The others search, until they too hear whispers.
The London Horror Society Script & Story Social
Looking for a space to develop your horror writing with other fans? The London Horror Society announces their Script & Story Social – a new monthly writing meet up for anyone scripting horror works.
Open only to London Horror Society members and limited to just 12 seats, we will work in pairs and as a group to discuss our current work and help each other to put some flesh on the horror bones…
Roughly, the agenda for the event will take us from high level to detail, as follows:
- Structure and Storyboarding – thinking about what is driving your story along and sharing an outline with the group.
- Character Profiles – considering back story, emotional levers and traits for a character in your story and getting another member of the group to question your character to dig out more depth.
- Imagery – What are you seeing in your mind’s eye? Move from written form to thinking about cinematic imagery.
- Scenes – Move into the detail of a particular scene you’d like to work on and write the detail on character movement.
- Dialogue – Script out the scene having worked on your characters voice earlier in the session.
We’ll take feedback from you about the structure of the session and develop this shape further as we go.
WHAT SHOULD I BRING?
Bring your faithful pen and notebook, or phone, or ipad, or laptop, or hand carved stone tablet – whatever works for you! You might also find your phone or a dictaphone useful if you would like to record anything you read aloud or capture feedback.
We’ll provide some paper and pens for larger scale storyboarding and scribbling if you’d like to use them. If you have any visuals that inspire you, bring them along with you too – we’re hoping to create a spirit of sharing with likeminded horror fans and acknowledge that everyone’s “creative process” (oh goodness!) is different, we hope to learn from each other.
Light snacks will be provided and we’re right above a pub, so plenty of opportunity for liquor to get your creative juices flowing!
This event happens every month – stay tuned/watch your email for the next dates.
