Winner of best horror short film at Shriekfest 2012. Official selection of Hollyshorts festival 2012.
The nation has been struck by a mysterious electrical blackout, throwing the country into chaos. Criminals everywhere are using the lack of alarms CCTV to loot and rob all over the city. One group of opportunistic robbers move forward a planned job and break into an antiques warehouse, taking the security guard hostage along the way.
As the job nears completion they realise that something else is also making use of the blackout, something evil. Alliances must be formed if they are to escape what ever is hunting them from the darkness. To survive the night, they must stay in the light.
Blackout is a short film based on several ideas taken from a feature length script I am developing and looking to raise awareness. It was made to show the potential of the feature film whilst also creating a stand-alone film.
It was shot on little to no budget and with a very small but amazing cast and crew. It was shot on the Canon 550d with prime lenses.
