Behind the Walls of Nightmare is pleased to showcase the talent of Britain's Luther Bhogal-Jones, who has just released the new short thriller Black Spot. This short film was shot with a 3D camera that was a Christmas gift from his brother, and features a local Brighton cast.
Excerpt from Black Spot Press Release
This February the Sussex-based film maker Luther Bhogal-Jones invites you to six minutes of mayhem, delirium and violence in the short roadside thriller Black Spot.
Paul is stranded on a lonely country road when his car fails to start. He walks through a melancholic landscape of missing person posters and floral tributes to roadside deaths, before chancing upon another car, but one which ironically is also broken down. Not only will this car provide Paul with salvation and suffering, but force him to face his own recent past actions and provide him with a potential chance to redeem himself...
Shot on a miniscule budget, with a £28 3D camcorder a little larger than a Blackberry, Black Spot is another short, sharp, shocking ride following the success of Creak, his previous horror short from 2012....
“I’ve always had a love of 3D films even though they’re tarnished with being gimmicky,” explains writer/ director Bhogal-Jones. “The red/cyan 3D imagery is such an iconic image from cinema’s history--as well as related so closely with the world of horror and sci-fi--and I’ve always wanted to make a film with that classic look.”
Three versions of Black Spot are available to view: a 3D version requiring the classic red/cyan 3D glasses; a stereoscopic 3D version for viewing on 3D TVs; and a standard 2D version for those who cannot view the 3D, although Luther recommends a 3D version, as that was the main reason for making the film.
