Hi, what are you looking for?



By Gavin Hignight

Greetings FOG Readers!

When I’m not nerding out buying action figures, or reading about action figures, or taking photos and writing about action figures… I sometimes do other stuff.

Writing and filmmaking are one of my passions and after reading an article in Popular Science last year I was compelled to tell this short horror-sci fi-animal rights story. The short is titled FIST.

The film stars the amazing JD Mendoca, David Dean Bottrell and was scored by the equally amazing Dean Hurley. I wrote the film and shot it with DP David Alexander Willis. We used a Canon 5D, T3i, and edited on Final Cut Pro.

Hope you enjoy, some thoughts are provoked or at the very least you are entertained.

Check it out after the jump!

    Using metaphors makes for interesting, unsuspected and thought provoking arguments. Film allows you to do this with even more intensity and emotion. Any story based on reality or paralleling reality is going to be more engaging than pure fiction. I think the area between pure fiction and dry documentary is worthy to be explored. You can take away anthropomorphic, sexist, nationalist, racist and other stereotypes people have and open them up to ideas they might otherwise blindly reject based on their personal bias's. I didn't expect the moral hook at the end and I thought that really made it a more serious statement than I had expected.
