Penitence was Tripé’s entry for the contest “Micro Curtas Mov + MotelX”. The competition asked for 2 minutes horror short films filmed on a cellphone. Although we didn’t win the competition, we received critical praise for the film and even got ourselves invited to show it on the national TV.

Entirely filmed on an iPhone 6®, Penitence was a successful challenge, mainly because most of it was shot on low light scenarios. Still, we did manage to play with that circunstances, creating a tense atmosphere with some localized lights and telling a good story in only 2 minutes.
