Twofer is an upcoming short film written by Noel Thompson that I will direct. It's a dark and twisty tale of a woman in distress on the side of the road and the handsome Good Samaritan who stops to help her out...and the two dead bodies in their trunks. A tight 5-minutes, my producer Sommer Garcia Saqr was recently awarded the Support for Artists and Creative Individuals grant from the Houston Arts Alliance to help fund production this spring!
Twofer plays on gender stereotypes and leaves the audience questioning who is the victim and who is the villain. I'm excited to stretch my directing skills with a project that I'm not the writer on, and I'm also excited to make a short where the primary objective is to experiment and explore the craft of filmmaking. I've been digitizing my old USC student projects and feeling that pull to just have fun and collaborate.
Below are some of the reference images as we go into making this suspense short. Stay tuned!
