Alex Noyer is excited to announce his directorial debut, the short film Conductor, will screen at Shriekfest in Los Angeles this weekend 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.
Alexis, a sound engineer, helps an aspiring musician, Josh, win the drum machine of his dreams in a competition in a mall. She mentors him and helps him find his groove to compose the winning beat. Once he submits his creation, it triggers a chain reaction revealing the competition booth to be a gruesome contraption. Through Josh’s beat and a horrific death, Alexis’ creative design comes to fruition directing the macabre music she envisioned.
