Award winning retro horror short now available on Amazon Prime
GreyDuck Productions is proud to announce that our award winning short film ‘The Chairman’ is available to rent, purchase, or stream free with Amazon Prime.
‘The Chairman’ is a retro sci-fi/horror short about the intersection of business, media, and the supernatural, created by Minnesota filmmakers Frank White and Jason P. Schumacher, and featuring an original analog-synthesizer score by UK composer OGRE Sound.
Frequently compared to the works of David Cronenberg and Paul Verhoeven, ‘The Chairman’ premiered at Cinepocalypse 2018, where it took home awards for best actor and actress. Other awards from its ongoing festival run include best editing and VFX from the 2018 Northern Frights Festival, and best horror short at Motor City Nightmares 2019.
Synopsis: Corporate researchers go behind the back of their mysterious employer to test the telepathic abilities of a traumatized girl and her father.
‘The Chairman’ is an attempt to dig below the surface of the late 20th Century retro aesthetics currently marbling popular culture, particularly when it comes to the horror genre. Instead of mere nostalgia for the analog era, The Chairman seeks to explore how it underpins a mythology for our digital present.
