    Home / College Guide / Killing Time by Patrick Hogan, Short Film Review and Interview
     Posted on Wednesday, October 13 @ 00:00:09 PDT

    Working on a breakthrough that can change history can lead to stress and internal questioning. We must find the answers within us to settle the past and the status quo to the possibility of a new future. I had the opportunity of screening Killing Time as part of the 2021 FilmQuest Film Festival ( website ). Killing Time was nominated for Best Science-Fiction Short Film and Best Sound in a short film. Patrick Hogan answered some questions about Killing Time and himself. Killing Time is a great look into our own psychological makeup to consider what we are willing to do. A question that has many folds because there is what we would do for ourselves, to ourselves, for our family, and for the larger population. Here is an intricate story tying those thoughts together. I recommend Killing Time to those who enjoy the paradoxes of time travel as they ae explored in science-fiction. Killing Time is currently playing at film festivals. You can find out more about Killing Time on IMDb ( link ). Answers from Patrick Hogan What inspired you for Killing Time ? Well, I read an article about research being done by some scientists and mathematicians that was incredibly intriguing, and I can’t discuss it in detail, because it would spoil the movie, but it got me thinking about the ramifications of this work and what it would mean on a simple, personal level, which inspired a short film script that I wrote.

    And I had actors interested and we were going to film in May of 2020. And then March of 2020 came, and the entire world basically shut down. So that was that. But in June my wife, who is my producing partner, and I were talking—we were both out of work because of the pandemic quarantine and had lots of free time, really more than I’d ever had in my entire adult life, and we knew that eventually SAG would come up with guidelines for how to film safely, so we decided that in order to be productive during this free time, I would re-write that script in a way that we could film it with a limited cast and a remote location and in such a way that we could follow social-distancing guidelines, etc., and we would film it while everyone was down and not working. So, the horror genre really lends itself to those requirements, so I re-wrote the script and what came out of it was a sci-fi/horror/thriller genre-bending story about how far a mother will go to protect her family. We then got two other couples involved, one couple was actor/dp and the other couple was actor/producer and found a very small but hard-working crew that was local to the location in Big Bear Lake where we filmed, we all got COVID tested on a Friday and then we worked two l ng days over the weekend to film it and the production ended before we would be required to do another COVID test, because we didn’t have the budget to pay for another round of testing of everyone.

    I had made a short film the year before the pandemic, so I was really lucky to already have a lot of great professionals in my contacts already, who once again stepped up and helped me through post-production, and the entire film, from first draft to finished product, took 8 months, which, at least for me, is incredibly fast. So, I’m very grateful to everyone who helped make Killing Time a reality during this really tough time. What would you like viewers to take away Killing Time ? I can’t talk about all of it, because that would ruin the surprise of this film, but I really hope it raises questions of family and parenting and love and how far anyone would go and far they SHOULD go in order to protect the people they love. There are many questions of ethics in science and the idea that just because we can do something, doesn’t necessarily mean we should do it. And does the ends justify the means? So, I hope that watching the film will raise some of those questions—and the film is scary and has some jump scares in it, so I also hope viewers are entertained by it in addition to it raising some thought-provoking moral questions. What was your motivation in becoming a filmmaker? I’ve always been a storyteller.

    I started writing award-winning short stories when I was 8-years old and in my teens I found myself at the double-feature matinees at the movie theater every weekend and by the time I was in college, I was a film/tv major and funneling my passion for story telling into films. For me there is nothing better on a professional level than sitting in an audience and listening to them respond to a film that I’ve created—hearing the laughs and the gasps and sometimes even the sobs—taking an audience on an emotional journey that eventually leaves them touched, moved and inspired is magical and what I strive for every time I make a movie or work in any capacity on a film or tv show. Biography Patrick ( IMDb page ) was born and raised on the tropical island of Guam and received his MFA from the prestigious USC film school, where his award-winning thesis film The Business Card had the distinction of being the first USC student film ever sold to an airline for in-flight entertainment. In addition to his unique vision in creating films filled with incomparable heart and drama, which have won awards at over 50 festivals around the world and aired on networks such as Lifetime and streamed on Netflix and Amazon, Patrick is an accomplished sound editor with 8 Emmy nominations and 3 Gold Reel Awards for his work on shows such as HBO’s Six Feet Under and Fox’s Family Guy .

    He is currently the supervising sound editor for CW network’s Roswell New Mexico and the smash Netflix hits Cobra Kai and Umbrella Academy .
