Had an idea for a short film about the value a fandom can have for an individual. Specifically Carol Corps, because that’s all over my Tumblr dash (and because I love Carol and her Captain Marvel series, because Carol is the best, obviously).

Now, I’m going to have to go back and read through Captain Marvel Vol. 1 (or 6, I guess, I just think of it as 1). For research and stuff … 

Yeah …

I love when I can do the things I love and call it research for work.

Made a gif preview for my short film that I plan to premiere online March 10. It’s a fun little thing about studying for the LSAT with the help of some adorable animated monsters. Also, there is dancing. Starring Kitty Ostapowicz (who you may recognize from “A Change of Expression" and "Metatron" [the poster for which you can see in the above image … because EVERYTHING’S CONNECTED]).

Abel and Cain is a ten minute experimental science-fiction horror film about Abel, a young writer suffering from a lack of inspiration and the internal journey he goes on to find it.

The film was shot on a low budget in Brooklyn, New York and features Alex Bone in the multiple roles of Abel and Cain, two sides of one man’s psyche, and Tara Cioletti in the roles of Rachael and Lilith, Abel’s unhealthy visions of femininity.

The film is inspired by the works of David Lynch and David Cronenberg, particular the films Mulholland Drive, Lost Highway, Videodrome, and Naked Lunch. The film also draws inspiration from Judeo-Christian and Norse mythologies and folklore as it explores the connection between creativity, identity, and the fall of man.

Plot Outline

When struggling writer Abel is unable to produce a promised manuscript, he is provided with a video intended to help him unlock his inspiration.

After watching the video Abel finds himself confronted by visions of himself as Abel, a failed writer, and Cain, a successful photographer, each struggling with the influence of a feminine counterpart. Rachael mothers and coddles Abel while Lilith dominates and consumes the creative efforts of Cain. In this struggle Abel tries to find the inspiration that will allow him to complete his manuscript but it may not be Abel who emerges in the end.
