Boomslang 3: Your Future

We were so fortunate to have legend JOHN WATERS in Boomslang 3 as Franck Boomslang, father of Erik Boomslang, the lead character.
In this installment, Erik has just finished another murder and is chased down the street. He bursts into a psychic's office to hide where the hilarity ensues as she tries to see what this serial killer is all about.
The original Boomslang won 25 Film Festival awards, Boomslang 2 won 17 including a selection in Cannes Short Corner. This is a series with Boomslang 4 coming.

Director Statement

As the cinematographer on the first Boomslang I knew then that I was a part of something special. When Allen called me to direct the second creation of this hilariously dark and twisted world, I was all in.

Helping create the look and feel of Allen’s words through the lens on the first short gave me insight into the main character Eric. I was excited to read the script to see what escapades were ahead for him in the second film.

Allen’s talent in casting, world building and comedic writing gave me all the tools a director could ask for.

This short gives the viewer both grounded & fantastical characters which beautifully contrast with the dark humor. The wit of the writing is complimented with strong delivery from an exceptional cast.

We shot this in one day, which I believe is a credit to everyone involved from the crew to the cast.
I’m excited for you to experience Boomslang 3.
