If you’ve got 10 minutes and a desire for something scary and cool, then we’ve got the film for you. It’s called No Way Out, directed by Kristoffer Aaron Morgan and written by Eric Vespe (yes, Quint of Ain’t It Cool News). The short played Fantastic Fest last year and we interviewed the cast and crew about its interesting and collaborative creation.
No Way Out stars A.J. Bowen (The Signal, The House of the Devil, You’re Next) as a lost and frightened man stuck in a basement with something unnatural. Until now, it was strickly a theatrical experience but in the spirit of Halloween, the crew has now uploaded the short to the Internet. Check it out below. Read More »
No one grows up with hopes and dreams to be a short filmmaker. People who want to make films aspire to make features and it takes time to realize the short subject is one of the best steps to achieving that goal. However, in the case of director Kristoffer Aaron Morgan, writer Eric Vespe and their short film No Way Out, they did things backwards.
Before No Way Out was even conceived, Vespe, best known as Quint from Ain’t It Cool News, and Morgan had already sold Dimension the rights to The Home, their feature length, haunted nursing home movie. But when pre-production on that film was put on hiatus, the pair decided a short might be a good way to practice their craft and simultaneously hang with some of their Austin, Texas film friends.
Two thousand dollars later, they have No Way Out, a 10-minute short starring A.J. Bowen (The Signal, The House of the Devil, You’re Next) as a lost and frightened man stuck in a basement with something unnatural. It played Fantastic Fest in Austin last month and /Film spoke to the writer, director and star of the short about how it came about, the art of the short subject and a collective love of film in general.
