Notes Kammer: “Growing up in the suburbs, I’ve always had a deep fondness for horror and science fiction that revolved around contemporary, everyday life. Visually stunning films that bring the impossible what-ifs and terrifying unknown into our homes and leave you questioning every bump in the night. Late one night while staying with my girlfriend's family, we both heard the ominous beep-beep of the home security system. It took us a moment to rationalize what could have opened or closed in the house and since we survived the night it was probably a family member innocently opening a window. But we were so conditioned to the security system's beeps that someone or something could have gotten inside and we wouldn't have questioned it. What I wanted to explore and capture in this short is the concept that the very thing that should be helping and supporting the characters is actually terrorizing them. Each time the security system beeps is a moment of horror and not of safety. ”
