Paul Minor ~ Possession [Short Film]

Director Paul Minor [Editor ~ Push Your Head Towards the Air, AFI ~ Medicate and Muse ~ Starlight] teamed up with designers The Battalion and S.S. Halajian to shoot a new short film ~ Possession ~ exclusively for Ben Trovato.

Possession was shot on 35mm with 2:24 TRT ~

Conceptually, it is really all in the title, Possession, which obviously has a double meaning. I wanted to play with multiple planes of overlapping action, and it all kind of comes back to this idea of twos and binary opposition throughout the piece. I’m sure there is a dash of Voodoo in there too. Maybe I’ve seen The Serpent And The Rainbow on cable one to many times ~ Minor.
