The Vengeance Tapes

In this self-reflexive video essay, Mark Bennett and I reexamine the raw footage of a movie we produced as a high school project more than twenty years ago. In doing so, we discover that time has altered the footage's meaning. The former building blocks to an amateur movie have become a cherished record of our youth, friendship and budding mutual love for filmmaking.

The project screened at the 2016 University Film and Video Association conference in Henderson, NV.

Produced in 1994 as a class project by high school sophomores, Mark Bennett and David Safin, "Screaming for Vengeance" is the second installment in the Ford & Hundley saga. In it, private investigators, Dixon Ford played by Safin and Roger Hundley played by Bennett, match wits with Ford’s archenemy, Tony Dellarino and his band of thugs, who were played by a collection of the producers' family and friends.
