"Ambitions of musical stardom end in mayhem."
Alex Noyer has announced his directorial debut, the short film Conductor, will screen at Shriekfest in Los Angeles this weekend (October 6th) before heading to Mexico for its international premiere at Morbido Fest. The seven minute film follows a music engineer as she mentors a young aficionado through composing a beat for a once in a lifetime competition, with devastating consequences.
The 808 producer said he wanted to not only study the use of drum machines and beat making in a horror setting but also contemplate the price of the pursuit of fame along with the consequences of today's need for instant gratification.
Conductor will screen Saturday 2 pm at Shriekfest. The film will appear in Shorts Program 2 at Raleigh Studios in the Chaplin Theater. Conductor will then travel to Mexico City to screen at Morbido Fest.
