At last! Now that the My Rode Reel competition is over, I can finally promote my newest short film as a film, rather than a contest entry.

After taking some time to add the new E Leal Productions bumper to the beginning of the film, both 3:03 and the Behind the Scenes video can be seen on Vimeo.

31 Days of Horror Reviews

Since I’ve been severely lacking on blog posts lately with school and everything, I’m going to challenge myself to do 31 days of horror reviews for the month of October.

It’s going to be a task in itself to watch and review a horror movie every day.

Hopefully, I’ll keep up with it! I have a lot of things on my plate right now, so we’ll see.
