Where to start!!? First I am happy that I met Daniel McGuire a few years back through Muay Thai. But unbeknownst to me, I found out, he is also a horror movie buff. And not only does he enjoy horror movies, but it also turns out he writes and directs short films of this genre. Back when we met he told me all about this horror movie he was working on. I can’t actually remember if it was another movie or his current one AIM HIGH. I just know, that off and on, I would always ask him how the progress on his movie was going.
For those of you who don’t know me that well…. I LOVE HORROR MOVIES!!! At Halloween, I used to always watch all the Halloween specials, and horror movies…
Now, into my adulthood, all of October, I watch at least 1 horror movie per night. It is the way I celebrate Halloween every year now. I even go to Horror Movie Festivals!
I felt very honoured to be one of a smaller circle of people to get to view AIM HIGH in its final editing phase. And now, to have just seen a private screening tonight of it as a feature short film was so exciting!!
What can I say!!?? I thought this movie was amazing! What else can I say without giving to much away!???
I really enjoyed the suspense that was developed from beginning to end. I felt there was a lot of creativity not only with set, music, lighting etc., but also with use of the ongoing conversations going on in the minds of the characters involved. If you like dark humour like me, it was HILARIOUS at moments that were perfect! I also really like the actors that were chosen for this movie. Not only are they talented, but I love how expressive their faces are, especially Rebekka Gondosch and Michael Pearson. In particular their eyes!!
Daniel McGuire and the rest of the AIM HIGH team will be starting their festival run in June! They have submitted their short film into a variety of Film Festivals both locally, provincial, nationally, and internationally!
AIM HIGH has been officially selected to screen at this years Calgary Horror Con, Canada’s first and largest Convention dedicated to Horror!! Talk about exciting…I wonder if I can manage to find a way to go!!??
Congratulations Daniel, and congrats to all the rest of the AIM HIGH Team!
