Level 2 Creative Media Production and Technology
Level 2 Creative Media Production and Technology student, Che Morris, is a big fan of films, and horror films in particular, so when he was asked to create a short film for a college assignment recently he set to work to create his own three minute horror film. Even with the limits of lockdown, Che’s approach highlights what you can achieve with a creative vision and some basic equipment, as well as the support of your family and tutors. Che wrote, directed and starred in the short horror film called Dead Revenge. Filming in lockdown meant he had to look close to home to find his locations, cast and crew. His dad and brother were willing volunteers, working with Che as a camera operator and actor. Che told us: “It took 2 nights to film but I also had to do lots of work before we started filming to write a script, plan a shooting script and schedule. We also had to complete risk assessments because we did a few quite dangerous things. It took me about a week to edit and I am happy with what we created.”
