THE PHOTOGRAPHER – short horror film

THE PHOTOGRAPHER is a short horror film starring Marine Mendiboure & Louis Ballèvre and directed by Kévin Mendiboure. Marina, 15 years old, is speaking on facebook with her best friend Olivia about a strange photographer seen the day before. Suddenly she receive a snapchat from unknown number showing a picture of her window taken from the outside…

Comments by Kévin Mendiboure: “Directing this new short horror film, i wanted to talk about danger of social media. Nowadays, everyone got a facebook and it’s very easy to got infos about the person with google.

In this story, (SPOIL) the killer is the photographer that perhaps the girl had met on a wedding or event. He took her facebook and snapchat, and come to kill her because she doesn’t want him as boyfriend.

This movie is 100% homemade : was shot with only one director and two actors. The lightening is 90% natural (except little light panel for cupboard sequences).
Camera used is 5D Mark III with Canon 2.8 24-70 (An optical that has a cinematic rendering).”

The Shoes: Short Horror Film and Comments of Director

THE SHOES is a short horror film project by Kévin Mendiboure, a 30 years old french director from Paris. A story about demonic shoes.

He comments: “I am a great fan of Stephen King since i’m young. With “THE SHOES” i wanted to do a short horror with new idea, never seen in all other short films. In movies, you see the monster in full body but in “THE SHOES” you can see only those 2 shoes, and you can imagine all what you want “is there someone invisible ? Are that shoes independant ?”.

I imagine that short like a part of a feature film; origin of the shoes, and the reason they want to kill. In my mind, that shoes belong to a man killed who wants to revenge.

For major part of action sequences, i used green screen to edit additional FX. For example, the -666 floor didn’t have elevator, i shot an elevator at the 3nd floor of the apartment and i edited in VFX.

For the elevator sequence, i used after fx for the numbers and CINEMA 4D for the modeling/texturing of the elevator. The goal is to find a producer to shoot the feature film version, to explain more about that shoes.”
