Binge
A short film by David Fernandes


A mysterious envelope arrives at Jen's door, sending her on an increasingly dangerous hunt to discover its intent.

Written, directed, produced and edited by David, Binge is an exercise in minimalism: the goal is to take a simple idea and use only images, music and sound design to tell a compelling story. 

"The eerie and tense BINGE is an exercise in minimalism that delivers lush images, compelling music, and rich sound design."

Selected for the 2018 Blood in the Snow horror film festival
