Remember that short film we introduced you to last week, Exist? Yeah, it looked really badass, and now you can watch the whole thing for free at the click of your mouse!
Ninety One Pictures’ Exist was written and directed by 19-year-old Tyson Johnston; it stars Curtis Simmons and Alain Singaye as two men who accidentally get caught in the middle of the world’s first encounter with extraterrestrial life.
“The budget for ‘Exist’ was literally $0. Nothing,” Johnston tells Bloody Disgusting. “A budget that small is never something to brag about, but it’s great to have people backing you to make it work. My cast and crew all woke up with me at 3am, drove to downtown and started shooting. We shot in my lead actor’s (Alain Singaye) car, we moved on to the Subway and shot that scene extremely quickly, then we moved to the alley way and had a few minutes there. When you’re shooting guerilla, everything has to be fast. If it isn’t, you’re gone and you’ll never see the location again. The plan for ‘Exist’ is simple for us: Raise as much money as we can, then shoot our first independent film!”
