The Haunting At Danford Cabin – Official MoviePoster

It has been awhile since I last posted, due to the fact that I’ve been working feverishly on my third short film, and my first stop-motion animation film, entitled “The Haunting at Danford Cabin”. This short is now complete and released as an official selection of the Canadian Film Centre’s Shorts Nonstop Festival, presented by Telus. The short is also an official selection of the iPhone Film Festival.

This short horror film, which was shot entirely on the iPhone 4S, has a runtime of 3 minutes and 21 seconds and can be viewed at
