Here’s a little about the film from Joey Medina before you watch it…

The idea for "MISSING" came about when I imagine what a black and white film with only one color would look like. I thought to myself a black and white horror film where the only color was red would really look interesting. I decided this will be the project I will practice my shooting, lighting and editing skills on. I've directed several times before but this would be the first time I took on all the other responsibilities.

As a professional comedian most of my filmmaking projects are comedies, so I knew if I were to produce a horror film that it would have to be as dark and disturbing as possible. So with that the idea for "MISSING" was born. I set out to make a film that would be hard to watch for the viewer. I wanted the viewer to feel what the victims in the film were experiencing. I made sure to keep the viewer at arms distance away, close to the torture and suffering.

Having almost zero budget I built many props myself and designed many of the makeup effects as well. I spent about six weeks preparing for the shoot, including writing and casting. The shoot itself took three days with a partial crew for only half the time.  No one was paid and everyone on the cast and crew happily volunteered their time and talent. I truly enjoyed making this film and enjoyed throwing my hat into one of the greatest genres of cinema.

Now it’s time to enjoy this fantastically bloody film…
