I love doing short weekend projects, especially as a way to test new gear, skills, or if I just have an interesting idea. Splintered was a bit of everything. I had the idea for this short thriller awhile back that told the story mainly through sound and visuals, no actual dialogue. I took my time creating the mask and a prop axe and as I grew close to finishing the props I had two major gear upgrades; a gimbal for my small 4k camera and a Canon C100. Seemed like a great way to put them both through the paces and get some practice telling stories.
