There is a moment in the hit classic Jurassic Park towards the opening of the film where our protagonists, the archaeologists Dr. Grant and Dr. Sattler, are introduced in fairly character defining ways that are both realistic and stereotypical. Each of them display a sense of charm and passion for the love of dinosaurs yet have their flaws immediately put on display, motivating the audience to understand why they are in their scientific field in the first place: the stereotype being that scientists have poor social skills and Sam Neils character being terrible with children.
“Lights Out is a short film about Bruce who is afraid of the dark. While staying at his childhood home, Bruce comes face to face with his greatest fear.”
We had four extremely talented actors from the Ohio area who were all key in the success of the Lights Out shoot. Paul Shaia, as our main character Bruce, Chase Anderson, as Little Bruce, Michael Waggoner, as Bruce’s Father, and Heather Anderson, as Bruce’s Mother.
