Marty is the ideal fifth grader. He gets good grades, listens to his teachers, and doesn’t start trouble in class. But darkness is beginning to fall over Marty’s life. The kids at school won’t stop picking on him, his parents just don’t seem to understand him, and now Marty must grapple with a terrible secret that threatens to destroy life as he knows. Brotherly love is put to the ultimate test in this emotional coming-of-age story that descends into full-blown horror!

After some shorts and video features, Scott's breakthrough feature was the coming-of-age horror film 'FOUND,' winner of 15 best picture awards at over 40 film festivals around the world!
A good example that horror films grow in intensity from a well thought-out script and dramatic development of the characters.

Plank Face

PLANK

A man is taken captive by a feral family in the deep woods. They are determined to transform him, body and mind, into one of their own - whether he likes it or not. What starts as a traditional slasher becomes much more interesting all of a sudden, which is business as usual in a Scott Schirmer-film. The make up which was done by producer and actress Ellie Church (star of many Scott Schirmer films), is amazing.

Await further Instructions

wait

It's Christmas Day and the Milgram family wake to find a mysterious black substance surrounding their house. Something monumental is clearly happening right outside their door, but what exactly - an industrial accident, a terrorist attack, nuclear war? Descending into terrified arguments, they turn on the television, desperate for any information. On screen a message glows ominously: 'Stay Indoors and Await Further Instructions'. As the television exerts an ever more sinister grip, their paranoia escalates into bloody carnage.
British apocalyptic thriller that relies not on a bombastic showdown of special effects, but on the personal consequences of fear and paranoia due to lack of information when disaster strikes.
Remain in your seats, and await further instructions.

Al enkele dagen loopt er een vreemd figuur door Breda. Het is niet van deze wereld, maar waar wel vandaan is niet duidelijk. Communiceren met dit paarse figuur is tot op heden nagenoeg onmogelijk gebleken. Gevaarlijk lijkt het in ieder geval niet. Eerder nieuwsgierig. Kunt U hier wijs uit?

Lise Sore

Lise Sore; performance

Het verstillen van een moment met emotie. Bevriezing van tijd, het ongrijpbare tastbaar maken. In zelfportretten maakt zij deze momenten zichtbaar. Afgestudeerd aan Akv. St. Joost Breda/2011. Sindsdien houdt zij zich bezig met verbinding zoeken. Deze zoektocht begint onherroepelijk bij haarzelf. Zij zet zelfportretten, woorden, installaties en performances in om duidelijk te maken dat er een universele wens is om ‘gehoord’ te worden.

Kasper van Tol

Kasper van Tol

Student aan AKV St. Joost. Voerde zijn eerste performance uit voor een opdracht waarbij een alter ego ontwikkelt moest worden. Dit was het begin van een combinatie videowerken en performance. In december 2018 creëerde hij een alter ego, genaamd John Doe. Dat begon als een buitenaards wezen die de wereld vervormd ziet en alles met bewondering aanschouwt. John Doe is een vreemdeling voor de wereld die probeert mee te gaan met de stroming van de samenleving. Dit gebeurt vrij onhandig, omdat John Doe niet goed weet wat normaal is of hoe hij zich werkelijk behoort te gedragen.

Clownado

A brief history of cinema: first there was JAWS (Spielberg, 1975), then there was IT (Tommy Lee Wallace) in 1990, followed by TWISTER (Jan de Bont, 1996) and the mockbusters of The Asylum, like SHARKNADO (2013). Somehow, in the turbo-blender mind of Todd Sheets, this all got mixed up, and out came CLOWNADO. Cursed demonic circus clowns set out on a vengeful massacre using tornadoes. A stripper, an Elvis impersonator, a truck driver, a teen runaway, and a dude, get caught up in the supernatural battle between femme fatale and the boss clown from hell.

Rowan van As

De gemiddelde mens die uit de kast komt, komt uit de, wel… kast. Maar Rotterdammer Rowan van As komt uit de vuilnisbak! Respect! Zijn aubades worden vertolkt op trompet, piano of accordeon, maar net zo lief knutselt hij met spullen uit zijn directe omgeving een instrument in elkaar. Het idee? Je woonruimte is net zo goed een kunstwerk (het schijnt een heersende tendens in de Rotterdamse underground te zijn). Op zijn naam staan de Mosselpiano en de Oscar-prullenbak. Een oude stoel wordt een geluidsassemblage met krijsende meeuwen. Ook speelt hij soms het thema van Pipi Langkous.

Belgica

A Flemish director recently stated that horror was not ours. Harry Kümel, Jonas Govaerts, James Desert and many others would gladly dare to disagree. On Facebook, Belgica Obscura managed to collect nearly 200 Belgian horror (co)productions, going from big budget pictures, student films, to inevitable homemade splatter and amateur flicks. Vampires, psychopaths, aliens, demons, zombies, even cardboard prehistoric creatures and even more! You name it, we have it. That's why the directors and me are bringing you a small selection of short films to show you the diversity of what Belgica Obscura stands for.
Horror is not ours? The stubborn Belgians dare to disagree!
