A short film about an unstable man who is haunted by his violent actions against a woman.
This film was an assignment for the course Film Theory where we needed to pick a short story and adapt it to film. My group chose “The Tell-Tale Heart” by Edgar Allan Poe, but altered the story to tell about the relationship between a young man and a woman, rather than an elderly man and his pupil. I play the young woman in the video, who spurns the man and later dies in fear as a result of his actions. While the piece has no formal script, as it lacks dialogue, I compiled a shot list with the necessary actions for each shot in order for the story to come through. I also edited the video, which included adding in the sound effects and music.
