This week we interview Director Taylor Ri’chard of the upcoming paranormal themed found footage horror film “The Final Project.” We discuss the genesis of this latest addition to the found footage film genre as well as Taylor Ri’chard’s philosophy behind found footage and some of the techniques that embody the film.
For six college students, it’s the ultimate graduation project: A documentary about one of the most notorious haunted sites in the Southern United States. Lafitte Plantation is a Civil War landmark with a dark past steeped in American history. All over Vacherie, Louisiana, locals whisper about the legend of Lafitte, telling terrifying stories of dead soldiers, murdered families, and restless shadows roaming its abandoned corridors. No one has occupied Lafitte in years. No one will stay after dark. No one has dared to uncover its secrets… until now.
Outfitted with high-tech recording equipment, the intrepid filmmakers are ready for anything. Venturing deep into the Louisiana backwoods with cameras ready and GoPro ‘head-cams’ online, the students begin to explore the estate and plantation grounds, livestreaming every moment of their adventure. But something is watching, and one of them has already been chosen. As darkness falls and their fears come to life, one by one, they’ll learn the terrible secret of Lafitte. The dead are awake, and there are some places the living should never go.
