This was my first student film, shot
entirely in black and white on 8mm film,
based on the opening scene of a
feature length script I created in 1999
after the Columbine shootings. It is a
story that looks at fear, paranoia and
high school violence. I admit that this
was a very ambitious first film. I didn't
have the special effects or the directing
know how that I do today. But this film
was a good stepping stone and you can
definitely see the beginnings of my
visual and storytelling style.
