Short Film Profile

To Inflict

A young man under strain must come to grips with his anger when it threatens to jeopardize the most important relationship he's had thus far. Gage Bladik's anger issues threaten to upset the relationships in his life. Gage's Fiance, Chelsea Sanworth, works with him to curb his temper. She loves him but fears their relationship is turning into a violent one. As a result, she offers an ultimatum on their impending marriage: get help, or the wedding is off. Gage Bladik is an on edge office worker by day and a riled up Road Rager by night.

Film notes

To Inflict was filmed over the course of two months, primarily on weekends. All of the cast and crew hold other jobs, so this project was made in whatever free time we could scrounge together. On most filming days, crew was often micro, with only one or two people to light, shoot, and record the audio for the scene. Only on one day of filming was the whole crew there.

The main character (Chelsea Sanworth) was named after Saint Louis born actress Chelsea Zotta. This salute was meant as a thank you for contributions to her character by the "To Inflict" film producers Bryan Kreutz and Brayden Patterson.
