How To Start A Horror Short Film Startup Company — Chloe Carroll

Film Courage: Did you read a lot of horror or sci-fi books growing up?

Chloe Carroll, Actor/Director: No, I was terrible at reading. I just watched films. I would go to Blockbuster [Video]and get a pile of films and just watch them. I was never a big reader and if I did I would just read short stories.

It’s actually a reason why I make super short films because I am one of those people who has a very short attention span. It’s really hard for me to sit down for two hours and watch a movie without doing something else.

One of my idols is the Youtube channel PonySmasher [David Sandberg]. I love, love, love them and I love their story. They started out as a husband and wife team and he does all of the BTS videos of how he made it. It’s literally like a two-minute short with a scare. I would just sit and watch all of them on the playlist. I could watch them over and over again. I just think that is so creative. That is actually why I created Fear Crypt because I’m like I love this stuff, I am the audience and I know that I can be good at making this…(Watch the video interview on Youtube here).
