FLESH ART – A Short Film by Christopher Goodman and Nick Thompson

Directed by: ,
Written by:

Written and co-directed by Chris Goodman and Nick Thompson, FLESH ART revolves around a lone survivor, played by British actor David Laurence, of a virus outbreak that has caused its victims to turn into flesh-eating zombies. Holed up in his basement, the man imprisons the infected and dissects dead bodies to use the body parts to create his ‘body’ art sculpture.

With its running time at around 5 minutes, Christopher and Nick have scuplted their own macabre masterpiece in the form of FLESH ART. The sets, which were  built on the NFTS sound stage and were designed by Antonia Lowe and Patrick Harris, are grim and produce a grisly atmosphere to the already horrifying story. The make-up techniques, which were taught by renowned British award-winning studio, Millenium FX, are top notch with amazing attention to detail whilst keeping the subjects realistic.

The film is shot with lots of black, greys and brown shades, injecting an unsettling sense of dread into each shot and is complemented by a subtle yet effective score. You can tell nothing has been looked over in this movie and the filmmakers are keen to deliver a short, sharp story that will instill unease in the viewers hearts.

With this impressive short, I am keen to see future projects from both Chris and Nick and hope one day they use their skills to create a feature length film. Chris is currently working with short film anthology Bloody Cuts and has worked as art director on their shorts since ‘Mother Died’.

I love practical effects, stop-motion animation and gore, but most of all I love a good story! I adore B-movies and exploitation films in many of their guises and also have a soft spot for creature features. I review a wide range of media including movies, TV series, books and videogames. I'm a massive fan of author Hunter S. Thompson and I enjoy various genre of videogames with Kingdom Hearts and Harvest Moon two of my all time favs. Currently playing: The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Yakuza Zero and Mafia III.
