The Infernum Short Film has premiered. Ted Marcus‘ Infernum (2010) stars David Dayan Fisher, Charlie Hunter, Cat Forrest, and Maria Olsen. Infernum‘s plot synopsis: “A high-stakes drama of redemption and death, set during the chaos and brutality of the medieval Inquisition.” Most of the short films I have seen do not have the quality of this one. Great acting, set up, cinematography, and Infernum even manages to make connection with the viewer during its brief runtime. The camera used seems to be of the feature film grade as well. When The Expected (David Dayan Fisher) is about to die and he looks back at the Attendee (Charlie Hunter) covered in tar is probably the best moment in Infernum. From Ted Marcus
Infernum represents my attempt to reinvigorate the ‘period drama’ into something exciting, concise and relevant, three qualities which contemporary audiences don’t usually associate with this genre. It’s important, because often the impact of a story can be more clearly felt if it’s removed from a familiar, modern context and cast against the canvas of a more extreme age.
