Aaron Moorhead

Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead are rapidly asserting themselves as THE powerhouse duo of indie genre cinema magic. Perhaps a bit hyperbolic to throw the "genius" tag at the pair just yet, but when it comes to low budget insanity, these guys are doing it with more originality than just about any filmmaker on the market. Their latest venture, The Endless, completes a trio of gems that'll live on long after studios finally recognize the team's knack for manipulating tired gimmicks and making something entirely new and infinitely consumable.

I have rituals in my mind that I like to perform while I’m watching a film. First, I clear my mind of any preconceived notions or assumptions of what I’m about to watch. Second, I try to lay out the flow of each act to see, in the end, if the plot points throughout pay off. And the last thing I do is put myself in the position to ask: if I was given the first half of the script, how would I finish this movie? The first two rituals are to aid in my understanding of the technical side of the filming, but the last part is purely a test on the predictability of the movie.
