The Camera (short film / original score)

a narrative film in no language

In an abandoned beach house, a solitary girl finds a mysterious camera that reveals something unexpected.

"Perfect in its simplicity, beautiful and haunting in its visuals, The Camera is a reminder that a great film is in everyone’s grasp, as long as he/she has the creative capacity and appropriate willpower to drop pretension, and quite simply, make something." —Short of the Week

"From its delicate shot composition to an emotionally stirring score, Peter Lewis‘s The Camera is a crash course in great filmmaking." —Film School Rejects Short Film of the Day

"A compelling example of what’s possible when perseverance and resourcefulness meet." —DirectorsNotes.com

"Awesome ... 'The Camera' proves that beautiful movies can be made simply and makes you want to get out and make your own!" —Mitch Aunger, planet5D

Listen to the original score here: https://soundcloud.com/peterlewismusic/the-camera-original-score-1

Aside from a few unfinished running-around-in-the-woods-with-guns experiments from my early teens, this is my first film. I made it because I love all the different aspects of filmmaking, because I was tired of my fear of failure, and because I wanted to see what would happen if I just finished one. Maybe this will lead to bigger and better films; maybe not. Either way I learned something.

The story was largely born from its constraints. It had to be doable in my free time, and I had to be able to shoot it during my vacation in Nags Head, NC—with a budget of only $50, to cover the props (I'd previously owned the Canon T2i, lenses, and Logic Pro, and used the free 30-day trial of FCPX). I wanted it to be a simple story with a mysterious twist or two.

I got lots of advice from fellow filmmakers—Andrew, Mitchell, Kyle, Brian, Shepherd, Drew, David, and others. If you like the film, thank you Andrew, Mitchell, Kyle, Brian, Shepherd, Drew, and David. If you thought it was rubbish, they only tried to make it better than it was. And thanks again to Abbie and Gabe, without whose talents I couldn't have made it.

Some have asked about Emily; the film wasn't written about her (she passed away while it was in post-production), but she was a dear friend of my family and many others, and it was an honor to dedicate it to her memory.

Many of you know far more about filmmaking than I do, so please feel free to offer any critique.

The Lights Film School blog interviewed me about the making of the film and overcoming fear of failure: http://www.lightsfilmschool.com/blog/short-film-canon-t2i-low-budget/1780/

THE WOMAN DRESS - Miu Miu Women's Tales #3

a narrative film in no language

A short film directed by Giada Colagrande

The film stars Italian actress Maya Sansa and is set to a haunting soundtrack, written especially for the film by electronic pop trio Au Revoir Simone.

Following The Powder Room -- Zoe Cassavetes' dreamy story of opulence and glamour, and MUTA -- Lucrecia Martel's film noir filled with mutant fashion divas -- The Woman Dress is again set in an all-female world of glamour and desire. But this time fashion obsession is taken to its most extreme conclusion, in a metaphysical tale of transcendence and ritual.

A coven of elegant witches attends a bubbling cauldron, their shadowy cavern hung with the ghosts of dresses. Maya Sansa is undressed and led to a bath, and her finger pricked to draw blood. The witches -- played by Heather D'Angelo, Erika Forster and Annie Hart of Au Revoir Simone -- circle, chanting in strange tongues. As the smoke clears we see Maya Sansa has made the ultimate sacrifice, transforming herself into the object of her desire -- a beautiful blood red dress.

The film, featuring key dresses from Miu Miu, draws on a surreal cinematic language, with its red velvet curtain, reverse-speak and dreamlike mise-en-scène.

Maid to Haunt (2015)

a narrative film in no language

I am proud to present my Animation Mentor student film, Maid to Haunt - (2015) A ghost desperately tries to scare a Maid, but in the end...

Making of: http://maidtohaunt.weebly.com/making-of.html

Jess Morris - Created, Storyboards, and Animation (www.jess-morris.com)
Jeremy Vickery - Environment Design, Modeling/Shading, and Lighting/Compositing (www.jermilex.blogspot.com)
Jason Spilchak + Te Wilson - Cloth/Hair Modeling (www.spilly.wordpress.com + )
Brian Arnold "Tweex Music" - Music Composition and Sound Design (www.tweexmusic.com)

This short film made my graduation in 2009 even more special than it already was. I was honored to receive the Best Silent Acting Award for Maid to Haunt. Seeing that others enjoyed watching this film as much as I had working on it, really gave me the drive to make this a complete piece. And after many years and much help, it has happened! And I couldn't be happier with the final product!

A big thanks goes out to Jeremy Vickery who had a huge part in the making of this film. This wouldn't be possible without him!

Thanks to my Mentors who helped develop this film in the beginning: Sean Sexton and Cal Brunker. They pushed me past what I thought I could do, and taught me what the creative process should be.

Thanks to Brian Arnold for somehow knowing the music that was in my head.

And of course thanks to Animation Mentor; Bobby Beck, Shawn Kelly, and Carlos Baena for all that you do and helping dreams come true.

I hope you enjoy Maid to Haunt!

(Started in 2008, animation finished in 2009, whole project finished in 2015.)

OFFF Quebec 2015 by Jean-Paul Frenay

an experimental film in no language

They say you should observe a piece of art deeply to understand its concept and interpret it in your own way, we think that Jean-Paul Frenay took this idea and twisted it into something even bigger than just an interpretation. He made sure to create an introspective “sarcastic” adventure.

We were so astonished when we received this and proud to present to you a visual piece communicating social behaviors in different sceneries that will put you into a hypnotic experience.

Ladies and gentleman, OFFF on Tour’s second edition in Quebec Main Titles 2015 by Jean-Paul Frenay!

Executive Producer: Geoffroy Rouffiange

The Killing Joke

a narrative film in no language

A Short Film by Sebastian Lopez

The Killing Joke is a 15 minute suspense/fiction short film about a mysterious woman that finds a red balloon tied up to a curious little box on an eery derelict street. Using classic elements of suspense and working within a seventies aesthetic, 'The Killing Joke' is an action packed film that pays homage to some of the horror movies from that era.

The piece was shot during four intense days of filming in the Argentinian capital Buenos Aires. The micro budget production was shot using just two 7d canon cameras. The composition and CGI effects for 'The Killing Joke' required months of 'invisible' digital retouching to create the panoramic, yet claustrophobic atmosphere that pervades throughout the movie.

The Film editor was Sabrina Mottino.

Sebastián López wrote and directed the story, and was also responsible for all the impressive post and composition work.

Colin Devlin created the Original Soundtrack, working from his home studio in LA he collaborated on the project with Sebastian from it's inception, creating a wonderful striking symmetry between sound and image.This is the second collaboration for Sebastian and Colin, the first being an action packed trailer created for a fictitious movie called 'Vertical' that went viral on the net, creating a serious buzz for the young director.

Actors Gustavo Marzo and Clarisa Staracci Worked together to portray the intense characters seen on screen.

The Killing Joke was a work of entire dedication and effort.
