The Gravedigger's Son

 Genre: gothic horror

My Roles: producer, editor, sound operator, sound designer, visual effects artist


Synopsis: a poverty-stricken gravedigger struggles to provide for his only son. One day when the boy's only pair of shoes wither into disrepair, the gravedigger must go to extreme lengths in order to replace them.

Inspiration: I was inspired by The Blair Witch Project with regards to the film's sound design. They used organic sounds made by unseen entities, to haunt the characters, as well as the viewer, and I incorporated this method into our film.
