A young man’s hunger for power leads him down a rabbit hole, but is this presence really the master of all things evil?
Just a side note, this was created for a high school class on the subject of “persuasion.” Some of the terms we use were specific to the course, and “Miss Porcelli” was the teacher. In the case of this video, it was Satan (?) attempting to persuade a mortal that he is who he says he is. I was also a dumbass and could have been burned alive.

I like to think of myself as a co-producer on this project, which was written and directed by Eric – I recall we had a blast figuring out these pyro effects, and that we were up all night editing the video for it’s debut the following morning.
Trivia – “Royal V” was the name of a piss-poor vodka that we used to buy in bulk in plastic bottles (I think Eric’s first drink was Royal V and Midori), and Mike’s reference to “Crazy Horse” was also some brand of liquor.
This was the most fun any of us had on a school night. I long for those times hangin with Eric, Mike and Megan making movie magic.
Oh, and look closely – as I dramatically swish my torch, the camera cuts before you see the flaming towel fly straight for Mike’s face.
Sorry Mike. Improv – it’s how I roll.
Yes, the Danal pulled out a wonderful edit on this one, as well as the voice of the demons (surprise surprise). The best part was when Megan, who had to go home, just drops her torch and takes off.
The coin was from Ultima V (?), the bat mask was first seen in my first ever short film (at like age 10) whose name escapes me, so it’s old, and yes, I really did put lighter fluid on an old pair of sneakers and risked death.
I also did the crappy computer animated intros (which you’ll see in some of these short films).
Actually, i always thought the intros were ahead of their time. Much more advanced than anything CBP was doing at the time!
I’m not sure how I feel about seeing my future husband frenching a skull. I mean, I’m goth, but not *that* goth.
What was the program you used to do those graphics? I think I had something called vectorvision from Broderbund software for the apple IIe, but you had an IBM and I forget what that program was called.
