a new film by FallenThomas
Hello, TMU community! After years of inactivity, I'm back to playing my favorite game of all time: The Movies. Machinima has evolved greatly from the time I began back in 2007. Since then, I've used my experience playing this wonderful game to influence my live-action cinema, which you can view here. Now, I'm working a new job as an instructional aid at a local elementary school and I find my creativity flourishing more than ever!
In my free time, I've been scripting FESTER, a psychological horror film in the vein of FALLING RAIN and my lesser-known experiment A BURNED MIND. I love to explore the depths of the human psyche in ways that can only be communicated through narrative film. Unlike Falling Rain, this film has dialogue and a full cast. Although I haven't got a cast in line, I will be messaging people I've worked with before to see if they would like to collaborate on this project. Again, this is just a creative exercise, but I'm incredibly proud of the rough draft of my script.
I've only just begun on the Advanced Movie Making process in-game, but I will post screenshots as the scenes develop. I'm hoping to really blow some minds with this film. It borrows heavily from such cinematic works as Memories of Murder, Shutter Island, Mulholland Drive, and The Wailing.
SYNOPSIS: Leigh Wells is a detective in Sun Valley investigating the murders of three women, all of whom were strangled to death with no witnesses. The mystery unfolds as the police force discover that the killer bears a striking resemblance to Leigh, who denies any connection to the murders. The guilt and trepidation of this resemblance bears heavily on Leigh as he begins having suicidal nightmares surrounding the victims.
Hope you're all excited for this one! Here's a poster for the film:
