Inside, Short Horror Film
This short won massive awards at various horror film festivals. Probably one of my favorite uses of voiceover - and ya’ll know a girl likes her creative use of voiceover. ;)
It’s dark and lovely… until it gets close to the end when it loses me, but what does everyone else think? Is the finale effective?

I released my short, The Anniversary, on Monday and immediately realized just how much I yearned for a community of fellow horror, thriller, suspense ladies to share it with, collect feedback from, etc.
Below are the women on Twitter who aren’t afraid - or at least enjoy being afraid - of a good slasher, supernatural or general horror flick. If I missed someone, please let me know and I’ll update, would love this to serve as a quick guide to any newcomer like myself looking for good people to follow/pay attention to.

Again, know anyone I should add? Just email me at FITZ (at) itsfiz.co.
— A few months ago, the homie, FITZ, decided to leave the corporate world and pursue her dreams of killing her girlfriend … and other sordid things her brain can think up. We’re into it.
Lovely writeup from the fabulous folks at Khafra! Thanks beauties.
Very excited to show this. A close friend wrote something far stronger about me/it than I ever could, posted below. I just hope you enjoy it.
Thanks to everyone that continues to believe in my weird ideas. I love you, guys. Fa reals. xo - FITZ
On Monday July 22nd at midnight pacific, FITZ, newcomer horror filmmaker debuts her oh-so-sweet short thriller “The Anniversary”. Although this was her first time operating a camera, the West Coast based 24-year-old wrote, directed, shot and cut the film in less than two weeks.
A long-time lover of the thriller and horror genre, FITZ tired quickly of the predictable plot lines and decided to travel down the long fickle road of indie horror filmmaking herself. This decision led to the less than 3 minute thriller, played by FITZ and her actual girlfriend, Ashley Ceaser.
The film chronicles a smitten girl who texts her girlfriend a love letter on their anniversary, she soon learns her girlfriend is deathly afraid to commit.
As a woman in the predominantly male horror film industry, FITZ understands the road ahead. But, that doesn’t stop her from creating. In her mind, industry prejudice doesn’t stand a chance against DIY filmmaking and the ability to supersede major studios by going directly to the audience online.
In fact, she’s moved into pre-production for a much larger thriller project titled, “Mrs. Kline” with a planned online release early next year. You can find out more about that project at itsfitz.co or following her on Twitter (@thatFITZ).
