Closer - Short ASMR Based Horror

Hi guys,

We wanted to do something a little different for our horror short, so we based it on ASMR. It was a challenge to work ASMR into a typical horror film style, and still be effective for those that experience ASMR. It has at least done well in festivals with 3 Awards, 10 Festival Selections & 3 Semi-Finalist Selections.

Hope it's of interest, and would love to hear your thoughts on our short film 'CLOSER'.

Stumbling across ASMR videos late one night, Sarah is intrigued by the phenomenon and its calming effects. When a suspicious video pops up and automatically plays, soon she accidentally ventures down an online rabbit hole. Plagued by phantom whispers and apparitions, she is unsure if everything is in her head or real.

ASMR means Automated Sensory Meridian Response, this is a pleasant tingling on the back of the neck and head caused by certain sounds (whispering) or visuals, and which some people use to help relax or to get sleep. Looking for a new angle in horror, it was our own experience and appreciation of ASMR that lead us to create this short.
