I did Welcome to Hell as a sort of exercise to see how stripped down a production can get. This horror short was planned as a two day shoot crewed by only two people. My point being to demonstrate how story is more important than fancy “Hollywood standard” gadgets and big crews. Making this video more in line with the early John Waters guerilla sense of, “Let’s write something, grab a camera, and go.” It is my belief that this sentiment is more prevalent now than ever with the growing popularity of Vlogs and Podcasts. So, I just figured since nothing I have seen in the local film community has spoken to me, I might as well use the tools I have and throwing something into the artistic chasm I would want to see, and that other people will have reaction to. Because whether people love or hate what I do; both emotions are equivocal in relation to passive carelessness. Welcome to Hell is a story about a woman named Trish who feels isolated and mistreated by everyone around her. She would give anything to have somebody around who accepts her for who she is. Who isn’t always trying to control her. Unfortunately for her, the only person who seems to be able to understand her feelings is Sonya.
