synopsis
Paul experiences the awkward minutia of a late night Tinder encounter.

director
Ethan Nelson is a writer, director, and cinematographer from Minneapolis, Minnesota. He is currently based in New York City where he attends New York University. His work spans short film, commercial projects, music videos, and other forms of visual media. He has directed two music videos for the critically-acclaimed band Hippo Campus; his video for “Souls” was featured on A.V. Club and NME.


filmmaker's note
With Ridden, I aimed to explore the emptiness of a one night stand from the perspective of someone who enables the emptiness themselves. By doing so, I hope I allowed the audience to ridicule, but also empathize with this character in a way that I haven’t seen before in other films. Through outstanding performances by John Higgins and Melissa Denize, Ridden is a comedic and authentic representation of the emotionally murky world of random hookups in the internet age.
