Short psychological horror film BURN enters post-production


Slaughtered Bird Creations and Dragon Egg Media’s debutfilm collaboration, Burn, has wrapped and entered post-production. The short psychological horror – directed by Judson Vaughan, creator of Pedro and the multi award- winning Soul Breaker – was filmed during February in Hertfordshire and north London, UK, over three days.

Here’s the synopsis for the film: “After several local disappearances prompt a nationwide manhunt, Burn focusses on Peter and Louise – two of many gripped by media-induced fear. When their son, Charlie, is born, the pair must find a way of raising him amid continuing public hysteria and incomprehensible personal tragedy.”

Starring Max Cavenham and Emma Kelly, the story is the brainchild of co-owner, Chris Barnes, and – in partnership with Vaughan’s Dragon Egg Media label – will become the first project released under production umbrella, Slaughtered Bird Creations.

Incorporating its creators’ love of precise tension-building, Burn’s approach is both patient and unrelenting, stunningly captured by Joaquim Barreto’s cinematography, and brings classic psychological horror to the forefront of independent British cinema once again.
