A family's worse fears are realized when their apartment is invaded in the middle of the night. While neither their lives nor their valuables are threatended, their would-be attackers provide a grim glimpse at how alone and helpless the family is when their entire hallway of neighbors did nothing to help them.
American Hell was filmed on Super 16mm using the Arriflex 16 SR3 HS (2400 feet of KODAK's VISION3 Color Negative Film 500T / 7219) and an old VHS camcorder (2 standard Maxell tapes).
A little gore in June 2014 for this SAG short by Robert Bryce Milburn structured to work as an extended trailer for a feature whose screenplay won first place at the 2014 Colorado Film Festival Screenplay Competition. Shot on Super 16mm film and VHS (reminding me of Modern Appetite). Lots of J Pervis Talent on this shoot, including: Ty Lane Miller, Josh Mikel, John Kap, Mark Ashworth and myself. Matt Thompson choreographed the fights so Josh and I didn't get hurt.
In August 2014, the feature film screenplay was accepted into the Creative World Awards as a Preliminary Finalist. Also Semi-Finalist at Bankable Script 2014. Production is currently open for potential investors and/or production companies to collaborate with and bring to life.
