STAGE FRIGHT (2019, 8 min)
Stage Fright starts as a slasher horror film that follows a talented high school senior, Melanie, who gets too absorbed in the pursuit of perfection on the opening night of the biggest show of the year. What’s worse, it’s 5 minutes before places and she starts to see shadows and an ominous masked man. Her anxiety finally spirals and her stage fright manifests into a cliché horror-movie slasher that’s out to kill her… through song.
