Directed by Scott Lyus
As their relationship grows, Lucette's obsession for ventriloquism and her dummy Hugo starts to strain her relationship with Jace. To Luctette Hugo is more than just a dummy, he's her best friend and represents her ambition as an artist, to her, he's very much real.
Silently Within Your Shadow - Director's Statement
Silently Within Your Shadow is my attempt at creating a story driven horror film, with strong characters, that doesn't rely on blood and gore.
I wanted to dig into the heart of an artist, in our case a ventriloquist performer, and see how deep her love for her art ran; and explore the effects on her relationship with her boyfriend and the horror that provides.
