Annabelle creation: Director on making the movie

I've enjoyed watching David F Sandberg's movies since he posted his original short movie called 'Lights out' which got a lot of attention and notoriety. It was a clever short film with a nice jump scare ending to it*spoiler alert*. 


When Hollywood came knocking it was of course a natural decision to remake his short film as a feature length version upping the ante in terms of jump scares. For the most part it was an effective movie. Up next was the sequel to the annabelle movie series called Annabelle: creation.

Below are a series of short videos from the director of Annabelle creation which gives you an overview of what way he operates as a director etc. There five parts in all which you can access through each video.

Its taken from the perspective of a director who was used to being essentially a one man operation doing everything from camera operation to sound design - something I can most definitely relate to - and suddenly being thrown into making a movie with a big crew and what that entails. As a baptism of fire I would imagine, at first, it was quite difficult trying not to want to do everything yourself. So essentially you would have to 're-train' yourself to fall in line with the hollywood way of making movies. I'm sure there was a few teething problems in this he briefly touches on that in the interview with Film Riot which I will link to on the bottom.

Happy viewing!


If you enjoyed that you might like to watch an interview with the director that Film Riot did a while back talking about his experiences on the 'Lights out' feature film.


Official Trailer of Alien: Covenant


Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew of the colony ship Covenant discover what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world, whose sole inhabitant is the synthetic David, survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition


I have to say based upon this trailer I'm pretty excited to see Alien: Covenant. It seems like its going to be more like Aliens with a mixture of the original Alien thrown in for good measure. Which to me is a good thing. Not that I didn't enjoy Prometheus. I did. It was really nicely designed and had some interesting touches. I did however, think that it left a lot of unanswered questions. But maybe that is the point of it. Something I have to say I appreciate in a movie sometimes, one that doesn't spell everything out for you in a join the dots fashion.

So here's hoping Alien: Covenant is a Alien/Aliens Mashup. Who couldn't be excited about that? With Ridley Scott at the Helm the movie will at the very least be a visual feast for the eyes. So.. so far so good. I'm sold. No more trailer watching for me. So check out the trailer above if you haven't already seen it.

Are you excited to see Alien: Covenant?
