    The Storm

    During one of the worst thunderstorms in recent memory, workaholic businesswoman Sarah is left with no electricity and no one to keep her company. The only person able to help her out is her flat mate from downstairs, the loner Dennis.

    The Storm MovieAs she struggles to meet a work deadline, she discovers that her flat has been sabotaged by an unseen intruder. The obvious candidate is a mysterious stalker who is now continually phoning her up and threatening her.

    During the night, she slowly begins to loose her sanity as strange events happen around her. But is everything real, or is the stress of her job finally taking its toll and making her imagination run riot? The police are unable to help her. And what of her only real friend downstairs? Can he help?

    This project was originally an assignment for a practical film making course at University. The suspense genre was selected as a basis to display certain conventions and traits to the film genre. This was mixed with horror and used various familiar practices in horror films.

    The Storm Short FilmThe screenplay was written specifically for a film that would be easy and quick to shoot. All the action is set around one location, and all outdoor locations were avoided completely.

    The Storm was shot over several weekends, as everybody had jobs/university/a life during the week and this was the only time that we could film. Equipment was collected on a Friday, then filming was done on Saturday and Sunday. An extra day was added at the end to cover any missing shots left over.

    Short Thriller FilmEditing began immediately and a rough cut was completed very quickly. All editing was done by computer. A first cut was finished, complete with original soundtrack and music, as the completed assignment.

    After this, the film became on ongoing project to finish it as it was originally meant to be, and to bring it up to a level suitable for public display. This includes cleaning up the image and sound, finishing effect shots, designing a soundtrack and music score and improving the effectiveness of the film.
