Camping is Cheaper, Directed by Jaxson Varni (Georgia) - Camping is Cheaper is a dark comedy short film that follows Leo, a bitter young man, who failed numerous times to break up with his infuriating boyfriend, so he lures him to a campsite to finally end it... the bloody way. Approaching my Senior thesis project, I wanted to create a film that was funny for everyone to enjoy. As a member of the LGBTQ community, I took this opportunity to focus on an etching new and fresh perspective of the queer community in the dark comedy genre. I was given a platform to direct a film that was completely personal to me, and I was able to combine some of my favorite hobbies, like camping, into one eclectic project. I wanted to incorporate my favorite genres as well as I am always drawn to dark comedy and horror. I’ve always said, the more blood the better. This film would not be possible without the incredible effort from the entire crew and for Isabelle Doucette, who took my idea and wrote this phenomenal screenplay. I was blown away by the success of this project and can’t wait to share it with my community.
