Director Amelia Moses tells story of Grey (Lauren Beatty, also in Bleed With Me), a singer-songwriter who chooses to record her next album at the remote studio of the infamous producer, Vaughn (Greg Bryk, also in this year’s Parallel Minds). Vaughn is brilliant and charismatic but also mysterious. Meanwhile, Grey finds herself haunted by visions of becoming some sort of vicious animal. She must find out if the monster is outside the cabin, in the studio or inside her own body.
MY TAKE: Loving Lauren Beatty in both the films she's in this BITS season! But is she beauty, or is she the beast? A lovely film where you get to watch the musician and her music change as she changes...but are these alterations psychological or are they real? And what is with her new producer/mentor? He helps her grow, but into what...and why? I think you'll enjoy finding out all the answers to this gorgeously haunting film.
MY TAKE: A father tells his son a fairytale/urban legend about his own origins...but is this tale simply meant to scare the boy out of playing too many video games, or is there more than a grain of truth to the story? A clever short that will keep you guessing!
