Ugo & Loris Melcore were born in Besancon, France in 1994. The town that witnessed the birth of the creators of cinema with The Lumieres Brothers. The Melcore twins were given their first camera at the age of 10 and have been making films ever since. In 2013, their work was noticed by many notable horror film websites with the release of their short Halloween the Night She Doubted. One of which was DreadCentral.com, describing the film as “better than what we’ve gotten out of Hollywood, pertaining to our favorite franchise”. Their Halloween fan film was shot in 5 days with no budget. In 2015, they were contacted by Bernard Bultez, a French author who had the brothers adapt and direct one of his short stories. “Jusqu’au bout de la nuit” became “Morbus Per Noctem”, shot in 4 days with a very tight budget of less than €1,000, the film still won several awards in International festivals including Best Picture and Best Directing. The Red Page Syndrome was conceived in 2016 after the brothers set out to create something more personal. The film was shot in a week, with a tight budget of €3,000, and post production that was done themselves throughout two years with the intent of making the low budget short film look as professional as possible. 2019 is a very important year for the brothers, as they’re flying off to work in Los Angeles in hopes of realizing their childhood dream of directing feature films.
