On today’s episode I’m talking with Shant Hamassian, creator of the short film Night of the Slasher. We start by discussing Shant’s background and how he got into filmmaking. We also discuss some of the ways he feels he could have gotten his earlier films out to a wider audience and how he almost abandoned the idea of being a filmmaker before his latest short.
Night of the Slasher has been hailed by both critics and audiences as being a very original take on the genre. It has been accepted into 100’s of film festivals including 2016’s SXSW. We discuss how Shant was able to film everything in one long take as well as some stories about what went on behind the scenes.
Night of the Slasher will have it’s online premier October 26 on Vimeo.
