In Red Balloon, horror short film by Damien Macé and Alexis Wajsbrot, Dorothy, the little girl Julie is looking after, behaves oddly during the course of the night screaming from her bedroom. Each time, Julie puts her back to bed, comforting her by telling her it’s just a nightmare…Or is it?
Red Balloon is a intriguing and suspenseful horror short film: it was shot with RedCam 4K and it includes challenging shots which was made possible with a team of 30 professionals including Jean Clement Soret.
Alexis Wajsbrot, one the directors behind this film, is a visual effects expert best known for his 2016 horror film Don’t Hang Up.
Red Balloon was Wajsbrot’s directorial debut. In 2010 he won the Directorial Discovery Award at the Rhode Island International Horror Film Festival and 35 selections in others.
