Yup, That’s right. This year Christmas is getting the Bloody Cuts treatment, and whilst we don’t want to give anything away, you can expect a distinctly festive flavour to the frolicking fear of our next adventure in HORROR!.
We’ve teamed up with the ever-awesome Røde Microphones to bring you a BRAND NEW horror short, and an accompanying ‘Making-Of documentary’. Røde have been super generous, so special thanks go to the team and Scott Emerton who joins ‘Team BC’ as executive producer.
So strap in and brace yourself for ‘Deathly Presents’ arrival sometime in the last couple of weeks of December.

This Valentine’s Day, we’ve sent out a bloody gift to lovers of Horror and believers in terror as we release ‘The Outer Darkness’.
‘The Outer Darkness’ is Part 1 of a new web series from the creators of Bloody Cuts – Producers and Directors Ben Franklin and Anthony Melton, Screenwriter Joel Morgan and Director of Photography Jonny Franklin.
“On Friday evenings in Lynnsmouth Community Centre, meets a group led by Father Jonathan Crowe. Together they share their stories – tales of strange occurrences, horrific events and bizarre encounters that have scarred their lives. Tonight, a young tormented woman called Jenny will share a story of her experience with a game of chance that sealed the fate of her family…”
Part 1 of this new series stars the wonderful talents of Isla Carter, Tom Geoffrey, Antony Edridge, Anita Booth, Darren Kent, Ross Mullan and Jonny Philips.We’ve also teamed up with industry leaders Kessler to not only create a new slice of horror, but also a series of behind the scenes documentaries entitled ‘From Script to Scream’ that show the process behind making a short horror film.
The first episode of ‘The Outer Darkness’ can be viewed right here for free on the official website or – along with our previous work – on the Bloody Cuts YouTube and Vimeo channels.

Finally you can watch ‘From Script to Scream’, the 7 part series of behind the scenes documentaries covering the making of this short film at KesslerU.
Are you ready to discover what horrors lurk in The Outer Darkness?
Those corrupters of content over at The Outer Darkness have released their latest episode of ‘From Script to Scream’: An episodic documentary tracking the production of the latest film from the creators of Bloody Cuts. Watch the Ep here:
“They’ve released 4 episodes so far which can be viewed over at Kessler University, an awesome site that budding filmmakers would do well in checking out… Slide on over there and explore the other great content from the good folks at Kessler…”
The next episode peers into the malevolent workings of post production… BELIEVE IN HORROR
The burnt husk of house rests in the wake of an apocalypse. The air is still, the ground covered in ash. Nothing lives, nothing moves…
But something is scratching beneath the rubble, moaning, clawing at a memory, a memory of a mother… A mother who died. Do you remember?
Eh hem… anyways…
As the season of goodwill and all things festive approaches, we wanted to offer our loyal followers this early gift to get you in the mood for the holidays.
So tear off the blood soaked wrapping paper and gorge yourselves on this very special edition of Mother Died; the fourth episode from Bloody Cuts.
Team BC have been working very hard to bring you a brand new presentation of Mother Died, directed by Neill Gorton and produced by Ben Franklin and Anthony Melton.
This new cut of the film includes a fresh grade by the super talented Patrick Inhofer (Colorist Flight School), a beautiful new score from Patrick Jonsson and a very special treat from VFX wonder boy – Ryan Thompson.
Earlier in May 2014, Colorist Flight school released a ‘Mother Died Grade Along’, which allowed subscribers to virtually sit down with Patrick Inhofer and be schooled in the dark art of colour correction, taking the film from it’s flat raw state to a fully graded final product.
Check out the Tao of Color / Colorist Flight School website for more information, it’s a unique resource for not just folks wanting to become a colourist, but all breeds of film makers interested in making their films look amazing.
