Review of Horror Short From 6FOUR6 Films Titled ‘Camera Never Lies’

What would you do if an anonymous package was left on your doorstep from a ding-dong-ditcher… open it?

You might think twice after watching this short from 6FOUR6 titled ‘Camera Never Lies’.

The Panic Room Short Film Review thinks the filmmakers have a real knack for cleverly constructed cinematic color grading and sets a great tone for horror film-making. This entertaining short is well paced and wraps up nicely with a twist in the end.

I watched a few of the dozen or so other shorts on the 6FOUR6 YouTube Channel, and definitely recommend checking them out. He even has a few that show examples of how color grading sets the tone of a scene.

Worth mentioning that the sliding is accomplished using a Glide Gear DEV 1000 slide from Glider Gear. Kudos to 6FOUR6 Films for a film well done.

Harriet Tubman is one of America’s most beloved historical figures but has sadly been largely relegated to just a few facts during Black History Month. This incredible ex-slave, spy, cook, nurse, public speaker and rescuer deserves a story worthy of her stature.

“Minty” – tentatively titled after Tubman’s nickname – is a “reimagining” of Harriet Tubman as an action hero. It is a period piece with a modern flare.
