So for the launch of @nick-nocturn’s new series, HTMAW, I wanted to draw him! While the series about webseries, I found it really helpful in looking at my own creative process and becoming more aware of why I want to make the things I do. HTMAW is on its first phase, and I would highly recommend it, not only for making horror based content, but for everything else as well!
hc- how would the 5 rfa members react to an MC who is easily surprised/spooked/scared ?
Yoosung: He’s a scaredy cat himself. He gets spooked 10 times easier than MC, probably. He’s the one always initiating the anxiousness “DID YOU HEAR THAT?” stop making everyone crazy.
Zen: Knight in shining armor. “Don’t worry, whatever happens, I’m here to protect you, babe.” Lots of cuddles! He doesn’t ask questions, he just holds them close and helps them relax. If their anxiety is really bad, he’ll do breathing exercises with them.
Jaehee: She’s rational, she always finds the logic source of any creepy sounds and finds an explanation. If everything else fails, she distracts MC with things they love, i.e. animal videos or something.
Jumin: So confused. Are they okay? Did he miss out on something? “There’s nothing there, MC.” He’s such a dork and manages to make the false decisions “wait here, I’ll go look and–” NO JUMIN U IDIOT STAY WITH THEM AND JUST COMFORT THEM HOW ‘BOUT THAT?!
707: What an idiot, he’ll prank them or fool around and make silly jokes. Not to actually make fun of them, but with the intention to distract them and get a good laughter out of them. He probably ends up with something thrown in his face instead, but that’s fine with him too.
This short film inspired me to clean my room and check my locks.
I am… so happy! This was very scary! The build up of tension was fantastic. The gentle builds and small releases keep you on edge as you dread the conclusion. The way the backstory is given to the viewer is very effective too, with no clunky exposition. The use of sound was often a bit too Much, but it still makes for an effective short horror film.
