LITTLE RED

Little Red is a dark, controversial and abstract take on the classic Charles Perrault fairy tale. When Little Red (Lillian Payne) is confronted by disturbing hallucinations that act as instincts, we will find out if she chooses to listen to them, or accept her fate as a character in the story. Written and directed by Wynter Rhys. Shot with a Blackmagic CInema, a Sony Alpha 57, and a GoPro Black Edition 3+. Edited and rendered on Adobe Premiere Pro.  Released September 1, 2014.
