When I was 12, my brother took me to a screening of Wes Craven's genre-redefining effort, "Scream". We were the only ones in the theater except for one woman by herself in the front row. As the film went on, I was terrified but grew more and more intrigued by the other woman's response. She was screaming and yelling, "Run, girl, run!" and "Look behind you!" In that moment I saw the the art of filmmaking and what it was capable of. I knew then I wanted to be a director.
This one minute short for the Zacuto #MyStoryCompetition depicts that life changing moment. Considering film is a visual medium, I specifically tried to keep the voice over to a minimum and allow the visuals to drive the story. I hope those of you who take the time to view it, enjoy.
