The Woods is a dialogue-free horror short that follows a lone woman in a desolate snowscape on a quest to take care of an ailing

Shot using only natural light in -30 degree weather with no digital trickery, The Woods is a horror-meets-arthouse narrative about the lengths we go to take care of family - regardless of what they’ve become.

About Remington Smith:
Remington Smith is a filmmaker from Louisville, Kentucky currently living in Atlanta, Georgia. He earned his BA in History from the University of Louisville where he made his first two short films (Neighborhood Watch and Hank vs Ninjas, Nazis and a Chupacabra) before attending the University of Edinburgh to earn his Master's in Film Studies, writing his thesis on "Unsafe Horrors: A Critical Analysis of Horror Cinema, Torture Porn and the Unsafe Horror Film."

During his time in Edinburgh, Scotland, he made his first documentary short, Last Good Thing, which spurred his interest in pursuing an MFA. In 2014 he earned his MFA in Film and Video Production from the University of Iowa, where he also taught film production to undergraduate students as a Primary Instructor.

His thesis film, Rubbertown, is now a feature length documentary of the same name that follows Louisville, Kentucky resident Monika Burkhead, as she tries to move her entire house to another county in order to escape the health risks of living next chemical plants, a coal burning power plant and a toxic landfill site. Remington Smith is currently submitting Rubbertown to film festivals, is in development on a feature length horror film, Land Lord, and in pre-production for his next feature length documentary, this time focusing the Kentucky Derby.

His latest short film, The Woods, was awarded “Best Horror Short” by the Louisville International Film Festival in 2015. His films have screened at various film festivals including Landlocked, Snake Alley, Louisville's International Festival of Film, Speechless, River's Edge, Iowa Independent Film Festival, and the Y'allywood Film Festival.

The Woods (2014) Posted on February 9, 2016 by Felix Vasquez Director Remington Smith’s “The Woods” is quite an accomplishment, mainly because it’s a film set in the middle of a snowy tundra implementing zero special effects.
