Director Statement

Highly inspired by films like "The Blair Witch Project", "Paranormal Activity" and "Funny Games" I wanted to make a fiction documentary in the horror/supernatural genre. I wanted the film to be different from other lost footage films so I added quite a lot of thriller plot into it. This movie isn't entirely about someone fighting against an invisible evil force. In "The Psychics" someone is trying to solve a crime mystery, confronting human antagonists. The supernatural aspect is a result of the protagonist going too far, not realising the danger she is in before it's too late.
It was great doing this film. With a crew of just three (sound, camera, direction) and very few actors this minimalist no-budget movie was a fantastic experience. With such a limited crew and cast there was possible to improvise, move around and experiment. I really hope to work like this again, with great creative freedom.
