My First Short Film in A Few Years
 
The last time I made a proper short film was in 2013, and the film was Saving Mugisha, which I produced with the collaboration of an activist organisation, Raising Voices. Last night, I finished a new short film, What Happened to Jilted Lovers, which has been in production since July of this year. It took so long to finish partly because of the visual effects. Only when I got into post production did I realise I had underestimated the effects, and as such I had to cut out a lot of stuff from the film. It's still a good one,  I think, and you can enjoy it here.

This is going to be the first of a series I call Horror Romance, and it revolves around, well, love and heartbreaks, but add horror in the mix. Sheer horror like in Evil Dead, or The Ring. At the heart of the series will be a nefarous group called the Clique of Jilted Hearts. They have some supernatural powers but mix it with technology to recruit brokenhearted people, and to revenge upon those who hurt other's hearts. 

I will be starting on the next one soon and hope to finish it by mid-January.

This is the coolest of all! You'll have exclusive access to something I'm working on, in part or in whole, a screenplay, a short story, a novel, a rough cut of a film (so you can have bragging rights when it's out). This is a very hard thing for artists to share. Most won't want anyone to peek at a WIP. But you support me so you have a stake in my creations :-)) I only ask that you respect the creative process and not share it with anyone. PLUS all rewards above!

Do you know how much inspire me? Anything you tell me is an idea for my next film. You could use the film as a gift to a loved one (or enemy :-o). Say it's your girlfriend's birthday. The main character could have her name, her photo could be a prop!, or the plot could be adapted from events in her life or from your relationship (provided it's film-able on low budget)  :-)) Ain't that a cool gift?
