Filmcraziest Interviews – Ben and Jacob Burghart on their short film Suspense

On this episode of Filmcraziest Interviews, I’m joined by writing and directing brothers Ben and Jacob Burghart, whose short film Suspense (my review here) recently premiered at Fantasia Film Festival with The Block Island Sound. The film stars Jelani Talib and Robert Coppage III and is written and directed by Ben and Jacob Burghart. It follows an army pilot who finds himself suspended from a canopy of trees above the forest floor by his parachute. After contacting his co-pilot, they realize there’s something stalking them in the dark.
