A clip from Eyes in the Dark.

Eyes in the Dark is a feature-length independent horror film with a unique first person POV shooting style where the camera operator is also a character in the story. Produced by Seattle-based independent film company, Emerald City Pictures and hailed as “the Blair Witch Project of the Pacific Northwest” by Local Sightings.

Robyn acted as assistant director and script supervisor on the project during production in the summer of 2008. Marco was key set production assistant and played several acting roles in the film as well, most notably as the Beast. In post-production, Robyn edited the first rough cut of the film and put together the film’s trailer. After graduating from film school in June of 2009, Robyn began editing the film full time. She also took on the roles of sound designer and compositor for the film at this point as well.

Because of their outstanding work on Eyes in the Dark, both during production and post-production, Robyn and Marco were asked to take producer credits for the film and to become board members of Emerald City Pictures.

In early November of 2009, Emerald City Pictures screened the film at the RendezVous in downtown Seattle to the cast & crew and a handful of other media professionals. Among the audience members was Jeff Walls, Seattle Film Buff writer for the Seattle PI Blog. He gave the film a great review and singled out the film’s editing as being especially exceptional:

“The film was edited together really well and the blips and glitches added to the video felt authentic.”
