Directed and written by Michael Kyne
Starring Bianca Allaine Barnett
Web of Deceit was originally made as an entry in to the ABCs of Death 2 Search for the 26th Director contest. It placed 20th out of approx 250 enteries, which led Michael and Bianca to decide that they would try to get it into the local film festivals as a stand alone short. They currently have an indiegogo Campaign, with some cool perks such as limited edition dvds if their short, posters, stickers and much more, they have recently added some new perks so be sure to check them out.
Michael recently gave me access to a their short for review. Web of Deceit is a glimpse into an unhappily married couples evening. Bianca is explaining her need to leave for the evening, called into work again, but money is needed... Michael very disinterested, doesnt seem to care one way or another. Wife leaves and suddenly the husbands passion for kink shows its face, in the form of online fetish porn and more...
I am a bit torn on this one, I am not sure what kind of time parameter the entrants for the initial contest had, but I felt like this one should have been expanded on. I believe they have a great concept, but i think it needs to be fleshed out a bit more. I really enjoyed that they went with a fetish that is very real and fairly strange but equally popular, and it will no doubt speak to a niche crowd for them! Granted i have no doubt budget was a very real concern, and the fact that they placed 20th in such a prestigious competition does speak highly for the piece. Its well edited, well shot and will no doubt win the two of them some fans.
