There's been a bit of a shake-up in terms of my attitude towards making films. Now that I am technically an adult, I've felt it's time to try and actually get somewhere with my cheap crap, so I'm kind of doubling down on my efforts as it were, and I'm gonna start trying to put my stuff out there more (submitting them into film festivals and stuff), and also take steps to improve.

To do this, I am ditching the big 40-50 minute films for the foreseeable future, and I will be working on doing lots of smaller films. Since I hope to have one out every couple months, I figured rather than spamming the board with a whole bunch of threads, I would just make one big thread for it.

So, what is the first project in this new shakeup? It's called "Unhinged". I summed it up pretty well on my Facebook page, so I'm gonna quote myself here:

"I wanted to experiment with serialised story-telling, so instead of one film, the project will take the form of an online miniseries in 3 parts. It’s a mean-spirited collection of seemingly disparate stories (loosely based on actual events) that all come together in the end to form a singular narrative. With the help of some really odd black humour and Jorg Buttgereit style nastiness, it’s probably the closest thing I’ve done to straight-up, serious horror. I’ll be posting updates as the series develops, I am hoping for a release around December-January."

Episode 1 is here! I am pretty happy with how it turned out, given that it's quite different to stuff I have done in past.

I'm naffed and ready for sleep (and will watch another couple of times when I'm rested) but wanted to quickly mention that it had a bit of a Top of the Lake feel to it.
Great job, man... once again I'm super impressed. :smile:
