Short Film Buzz: Burn (2016)
Upon a kind solicitation, I am writing to share the development status of an upcoming film (@BurnShortFilm).
Director by Judson Vaughan (Pedro and the multi award-winning Soul Breaker) has recently completed filming Burn (2016), a short psychological horror film, in Hertfordshire and north London, UK. Slaughtered Bird Creations and Dragon Egg Media’s debut film collaboration has wrapped and entered post-production.
After several local disappearances prompt a nationwide manhunt, Burn focusses on Peter and Louise – two of many gripped by media-induced fear. When their son, Charlie, is born, the pair must find a way of raising him amid continuing public hysteria and incomprehensible personal tragedy.
Starring Max Cavenham and Emma Kelly, the story is the brainchild of www.TheSlaughteredBird.com co-owner, Chris Barnes (@TheBlueTook) and, in partnership with Vaughan’s Dragon Egg Media label, will become the first project released under production umbrella, Slaughtered Bird Creations (@SlaughteredBird). Incorporating its creators’ love of precise tension-building, Burn’s (2016) approach is both patient and unrelenting, stunningly captured by Joaquim Barreto’s cinematography, and brings classic psychological horror to the forefront of independent British cinema once again.
Keep an eye out for the trailer!
