(Webinar) Honeymoon Over: When Main Characters Stop Trusting Each Other

ONLINE TALK: Filmmakers Chloe and Phillip Carroll discuss the cause and effect of deteriorating trust in your film’s central characters.

About this Event

On the heels of their latest feature, The Honeymoon Phase, wife-and-husband filmmakers Chloe and Phillip G. Carroll join Chicago Screenwriters Network to discuss what happens when a horror flick puts the core relationship between its lead characters under a heat lamp. Whether maniacs or monsters, psychics or psychos, we’ll examine how the fear factor tracks upward as the trust level between partners goes down.


CHLOE CARROLL is a U.K. trained actress, director, and producer. She has been featured in multiple award-winning films, both domestically and abroad. Chloe was chosen as a 2017 Shudder Labs fellow when her pitch for The Honeymoon Phase feature film was a selected as a top five finalist in Project Greenlight and Shudder TV’s REEL FEAR HORROR CONTEST. In 2018, following the script’s development at Shudder Labs, Chloe starred as Eve in The Honeymoon Phase – released by Dark Sky Films in 2020. Chloe runs her own production company, Fear Crypt, which specializes in short horror films. Escapism drives Chloe’s love of film. Her mission is to take you into an alternate reality, to escape your everyday life. But beware… if it’s a Fear Crypt Production, that may become your worst nightmare.

PHILLIP G. CARROLL JR. is a filmmaker from Southampton, Pennsylvania and founding partner of Aspire Motion Pictures. Phillip studied Film & Media Arts at Temple University where his short film, WORDS OF ATONEMENT, won Best Undergraduate Film during his freshman year. His Senior Thesis film, THE ROAD TO JERICHO, won the Audience Award for its premiere at The National Film Festival for Talented Youth in Seattle, Washington. He graduated summa cum laude in 2014. In 2017, the pitch for his first feature film, sci-fi psychological thriller THE HONEYMOON PHASE, was a top five finalist in Project Greenlight and Shudder’s REEL FEAR HORROR CONTEST. As a result, Phillip was chosen to be a fellow in the 2017 Shudder Labs, hosted by AMC Networks. THE HONEYMOON PHASE was released by Dark Sky Films on August 21st, 2020. Phillip’s professional goal is to tell meaningful stories that challenge society’s beliefs and capture the human condition. His mission is to make you feel an emotional connection to the rest of the audience, because whether your life is like a drama, comedy, or horror film, you are never alone.
