Burn – Begin Here



“Burn” tells the story of a weary criminal with a young abused girl in tow,  seeking refuge at his ex lovers cottage from the horror that will consume them all.

It’s about redemption, forgiveness, love, hate and blind rage.  It’s starts off as a conventional crime thriller but rapidly handbrakes into something decidedly more sinister.

Be warned – This is extremely violent, often brutal, contains scenes of horror and is peppered with mature language. So with that in mind I’m putting a cautionary 18+ rating on this. But if you like your tales in the mould of Davids Lynch and Cronenberg with a seasoning of Clive Barker, then you’ve come to the right place.

Each part or chapter will be released episodically every Wednesday til the thing is complete. Any notes or comments welcome.

Thank you

The first part is called "The Pledge". The magician shows you something ordinary: a deck of cards, a bird or a man. He shows you this object. Perhaps he asks you to inspect it to see if it is indeed real, unaltered, normal. But of course... it probably isn't. The second act is called "The Turn". The magician takes the ordinary something and makes it do something extraordinary. Now you're looking for the secret... but you won't find it, because of course you're not really looking. You don't really want to know. You want to be fooled. But you wouldn't clap yet. Because making something disappear isn't enough; you have to bring it back. That's why every magic trick has a third act, the hardest part, the part we call "The Prestige". Christopher Priest, The Prestige #screenwriting too close to what I am writing right now! Motherfucker! Damn! Wait....it's a PG?!??? #DarkPathMovie. #MidnightRun #blackandwhitephoto #MidnightRun #WintersComing Time to loose a few kgs. 
#abstractphotography #artifical #colours The Frankenbeast gets power mad. Now it balances on my shoulder. #filmmaking #dslr #cameraoperator  #grip #canon #magiclantern This came today. 
Sooo exited. Sooo beautiful.  #loomis #howtodraw #backtothedrawingboard #screenwriting #DarkPathMovie part 10 releasing later tonight. Just wrote probably the most horrific scene today. This is the scene that breaks the movie to the audience and shows them how... Nope you'll have to read it to understand.
 After this script is done I'm writing a movie about pink bunnies  that live in a world without predators.  End of act two? Heading into the third and final act of the film. Heading into the home stretch now.  #moviemaking #script #horror #thriller #camerarig The Frankenbeast is taking shape. New secondhand #alphatron EVF and cage from @smallrigchina  took a gamble and very happy with the products. Cheap but not chearful. More to come... #moviemaking #DoP #cameraoperator #director
