Devils In Disguise

Tweetable Logline: “Devils in Disguise” is about two roommates, Leila & Sandy, who team up to kill Leila’s abusive and sadistic boyfriend.

Elevator Pitch: The story of “Devils in Disguise” centers around two flatmates, Leila (Magen Mattox) and Sandy (Montanna Gillis), who conspire to take revenge on Leila’s sadistic boyfriend (Guillaume Campanacci), is underlined with violence and told through strong, non-linear structure, with poetic and sensual imagery. In essence, it’s a meditation on friendship, love, trust, and murder, presented to us as a perfect blend of reality and dream-like fantasy sequences.

Production Team:

Writer, Director, Producer, Cinematographer, Editor: Guillaume Campanacci
Executive Producer: Alain Fabian, Magen Mattox

About the Film: I wrote “Devils in Disguise” thinking I would have almost no money. I wrote it with few characters and locations. Once you know that you don’t have a cent more to spend, you just pre-plan everything and it all goes smoothly sometimes. And of course you are going to find hurdles on the way but you just don’t throw money at them, you find alternative ways. We had a 2- 3 person crew, including me, and it all went well.

Current Status: Post Production and Fundraising for Completion Funds for Sound and Festivals
