Director Biography - Immanuel Quinn Saaktamp

I was born in Peoria, Illinois and when I was 2 years old I moved to Beijing, China. I lived there for 2 years and came back to America when I was 4. I have made multiple trips to and from China since then and traveled to different countries and states as well. When I got back home I was homeschooled all the way up to 8th grade which was my first year at a public school. Then freshman year I took the only film class available and made this short film in November of 2022. I admire the works of Stanley Kubrick, Martin Scorsese, Steven Spielberg, and John Carpenter. those are the people that I look up to.

Director Statement

The Short Film I made was the first time I really went out and made something of my own. After watching John Carpenter's classic Halloween movie, I wanted to make a short film that embodied the feel of Michael Myers I wrote the film, directed it, acted in it, edited it, and posted It to YouTube. This is the first short film that I have made. One of my favorite things about making this project was the little Easter eggs in the short, like the music video he's watching and the Michael Myers mask in the corner below my bed. The process of creating an idea and executing a vision is what I love about film.
