Creature FX designer and veteran commercial director Sandy Collora has been working in the film industry for over 30 years and started his career at Stan Winston Studios working on Leviathan and Alien Nation. He is probably best known in geek circles for producing the fantastic Batman: Dead End fan film back in 2003.
His newest indie project is Shallow Water, a crowd-funded proof-of-concept horror/sci-fi short that draws inspiration from classic monster movies like The Creature From the Black Lagoon and Predator. It boasts some impressive cinematography by Edward A. Gutentag, a menacing musical score and interesting old-school practical SFX for the aquatic creatures.
Have a look and tell us if you think it might make for an effective feature or remains perfect in its present form.
