That’s right! Our horror comedy, You Only Die Once!, is now online, just in time for the spooky/scary Halloween season.
This story of zombie-burdened ex-lovers holds a dear place in the twisted recesses of my heart. With this project, I wanted to experiment with some of the more wild and kinetic cinematic techniques, including split-screen, Dutch angles, and – my personal favorite – ZOOMS! In the projects that followed, Eric and Marcus have tried their damnedest to break me of my zoom addiction. They mostly succeeded, but I've gotten a few in there and yearn for the next opportunity! (Perhaps in our Minneapolis 48 Hour Horror Project entry?! MWAHAHA!!!)
Don't worry. I get it. Zooms don’t belong in everything. We devised YODO’s story as a foundation for such techniques, which is a backwards way of doing things, but hey, it worked! The whole project was an exercise in melodrama, and we had a helluva-lotta fun doing it.
So if you're in need of a laugh right about now, check it out. The film kills every time we screen it - in more ways than one! (Uh oh, look out!)
