I was hired by the hottest talent in horror film-making, Bob Pipe, to create storyboards for “A Christmas Pardon.” It is one of 24 short “Deathcember” horror flicks due to be unleashed this year in the run up to Christmas.
The film is a particularly grim medieval affair, depicting the pitiful town ogre as he is lead to the stake for a good old-fashioned burning, in front of the baying unwashed masses.
Director Bob Pipe won critical acclaim a couple of years ago with The Monster, a short horror flick choc full of style and wit; a show stopper at several major festivals including Frightfest, London. So it was with huge excitment that I took on this project for him, plus I know the guy… so there’s that.
Aside from simply following the script, this was also an opportunity for me to add some comic style fancy angles and flare.
