Short Film: Snake on the Loose

Here’s another short I made, using my little sister’s toys. You’ll have to excuse the amount of times you see my hand in this one – the phone I was using to record was damaged and kept turning itself off randomly, leaving me almost having a nervous breakdown and becoming very sloppy in my framing.

I suppose as a fan of the original movies getting a TV series with Bruce Campbell reprising his role as Ash, Sam Raimi involved, and being a direct continuation of the original film series is in itself an incredible achievement, so any complaints I have (and trust me, I have them) are minor compared to my appreciation of the show.
