From the Press Release

“Dogged” is a 4 minute horror short made in 2015 by Ash Mountain Films and director Richard Rowntree. The film is not available to the public just yet as it has been entered into several genre specific festivals around the world. It was shot in one tortuous 19 hour shooting day and cost just GBP£300 to produce. The film was entered into the BBC competition “The Fear” to unearth the best undiscovered horror directors in Oct/Nov 2015, and finished 5th out of over 500 entries. The short has received rave reviews from the horror community, and the team behind it are currently running a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds to shoot a feature length version later this year.
The Kickstarter campaign ends on 25 March at 2.50pm (GMT) and, as of the time of writing, is almost 33% funded.

Synopsis
“Dogged” is a dark fairy tale meshed with psychological terror and explores our primeval fear of “what lurks in the woods”. When protagonist Sam and his girlfriend Lola are caught making out in his fathers car by a bizarre masked man, their escape seems all too easy. As they return to their normal lives, they are plagued by visions of masked people watching them, and their lives begin to unravel in a depraved spiral of paranoia. As Sam digs deeper into these visions, he discovers that all is not what it seems in his seemingly idyllic rural community, and he uncovers a murderous cult who will stop at nothing to preserve the status quo of their environment, and keep their identities a secret…
