SQUIB

 A DARK COMEDY ABOUT TWO STRUGGLING FILM GRADS WHO CUT CORNERS TO PRODUCE THEIR SLASHER, BUT AT WHAT COST?

It's hard to be a filmmaker. Things are expensive. We've all tried to find the cheapest, easiest way to do something. Sometimes it's illegal. Sometimes it involves murder. Shaun and Mac are just trying to make their low-budget slasher, they didn't expect the greatest and most convenient way would break into their kitchen window in the middle of the night. And now that they've figured it out, why would they stop? This is fantastic. The is the best movie they've ever seen, and they're making it. And, nobody can tell the difference, right? I mean, what are you willing to do for your art?

"There is a great chemistry between the two filmmakers [Shaun and Mac], and one that comes with a smidge of charm, clever & quick-witted humor, and of course, a fantastic and macabre dedication to the art. Squib was smart, captivating, chuckle-inducing…and bloody to boot!"

- BRUCE Reel Bloody Horror

"It was the premise that hooked me when I saw it on kickstarter. Fucking brilliant if I may say so."

- JOSH Kickstarter backer

"What I liked the most is that it has a lightness, a sense of humor, that most student movies, which are full of existential angst, unfortunately lack."

-JACOB Filmmaker

"Fucking surreal and bizarre, the writing was really sharp throughout the whole film... it makes you think, what if nice little filmmakers like Sydney were actually doing this kind of shit"

ELI Filmmaker

"THE GIRL'S DEATH SCENE IS FUCKING QUALITY FILMMAKING. IM IN LOVE WITH THAT SCENE. And that composer is fucking phenomenal... My one criticism is that this needs to be longer, much longer. This needs to be a feature."

- JAMES Filmmaker
