SCHOOL OF THE DEAD 2: GRADUATION DAY (2020)
DIR. WILL MARTINKO
"The sky turned red the day we thought we escaped the apocalypse. Turns out, it only just started. As carnage ran rampant across the globe, we went on the run in search of hope, but all we found was desolation..."

Back in July of 2020, a tiny group of us came together to tell the abridged version of the chapter that never followed the film we made as freshmen in high school. While it may not be the full project, it’s three unforgettable minutes of what might possibly be the most explosive film of 2020!

Dedicated to all those who have supported us over the years... We're so grateful for your love and support!

ANTIQUE (2017)
DIR. WILL MARTINKO
This was my submission to the My Annabelle Creation Video Contest! We had to create an original short horror film that is inspired by the forthcoming film Annabelle: Creation and by The Conjuring Universe (i.e., the fictional world of The Conjuring films). One of the aspects of The Conjuring films that I find interesting is that they take place before the 1980s. People were spread out. Isolation leads to fear. So, I set my short in the 1960s and centered it around a couple looking at stars. The night goes horribly wrong when the boy gives his girlfriend a cursed necklace.
