A GIALLO-INSPIRED HORROR SHORT FILM…
CUSTOM is a commentary on the impact of our voyeuristic culture on the very real lives of the people on the other end of the webcam.
In CUSTOM, A couple’s life goes out of control after they venture into creating custom erotic videos for a mysterious client.
The film takes place in Jasper and Harriet’s apartment, as they’re dragged into a dangerous game. While their mundane life is more naturalistic, the film will get more stylised during their descent into madness. Our main references for these scenes are Giallo movies and the works of visionaries like Mario Bava and Dario Argento.
“This short film wants to ask the viewer to meditate on how the web facilitates violent erotic output and how this might affect people on the other side of the camera. In which sense does this differs from the cinema experience and the highly stylised violence against women that have become commonplace in horror films? And, most importantly, what part does the audience plays in it?”, says Director Tiago Teixeira.
Here’s a peek at the storyboards for the first minutes of the film.
