Hex Is Now A Four-Episode Short Film On YouTube
In 2015, Clarence Peters ventured into the movie industry when he directed his first short film titled Hex. The cinematographer was a game-changer. Clarence seamlessly transferred his unique inventiveness as an iconic music video director into making the movie. 2021, six years since it premiered, I’m glad to inform you that Hex is now made available on YouTube as a four-episode short film.
Hex is a horror movie that centers on five young people whose careless mistake haunts them even after a year. Five young people after a night out in town mysteriously knock down a hooded man. The experience suddenly began to haunt Bola, a final year student, traumatized her and eventually caused her emotional breakdown. Clarence Peters wrote the film. He also enlisted the support of Rotimi Rcube Oshodi and Victor Sanchez Aghahowa and was shot on location in Lagos, Omole Phase, in less than a month. The acting cast included Nancy Isime, Ayoola Ayolola, Scarlet Gomez, Roseline Afije, and Kunle Remi.
“If I am happy with the film it’s because I’m in love with the characters. That is the difference between music video and film for me. This film (Hex) is like my own tracks. The scriptwriter and I recorded the sound engineering for this film. In contrary to making a music video, here you have a lot of control to express yourself. Control over your photography with the character designed and a whole lot of other things. In making music videos, I can’t make an input into making the songs. I can only do that on the video. As a filmmaker, I can be edgy. I want to be true to the characters and the stories.” – Clarence Peters
