When her overly-attentive high school boyfriend, Robert, dies in a gruesome accident, Fern’s life is thrown into turmoil. Senior year gets more complicated when Robert returns from the dead as a love-sick ghost and tries to rekindle their romance. But being dead only exacerbates Robert’s possessiveness, and things take a deadly turn when Fern tries to break up with him. Robert realizes that the only way to save his relationship is to kill his high school sweetheart so they can be together for eternity. Fern must fight for her life to escape her murderous first love.

The Team
Michael, Gabi, and Bubba became fast friends during their freshman year of high school in Houston where they collaborated on
short films and one-act plays. They went their separate ways to different universities, but decided to return to Houston upon graduation to make a feature together. After shooting CLINGER, they moved to Los Angeles to start Clinger Digital, a commercial & music video production company named after their first love.

Michael Steves (Director, Writer)
Michael Steves is a 24-year-old writer-director from Houston, Texas. He directs commercials and writes for independent horror films. He graduated from Wesleyan University in 2013, where he studied film and international relations. CLINGER is his directorial debut. Michael seldom sleeps and often consumes inhuman amounts of coffee to stay alive.

Gabi Chennisi Duncombe (Director of Photography, Writer)
Gabi Chennisi Duncombe is a director of photography and writer from Houston, Texas. She graduated from Rice University in 2012 with a degree in Visual & Dramatic Arts. Gabi currently lives in Los Angeles and shoots narrative features, documentaries, music videos, and commercials. Gabi plays the banjo and the accordion, but only well enough to impress people who don’t play them.

Bubba Fish (Producer, Writer)
Bubba Fish is a 23 year-old writer-director from Houston, Texas who graduated from the University of Southern California School of Cinematic Arts in 2013. Bubba primarily directs commercials and music videos. His work in the LGBT space has been covered in outlets like The Huffington Post, Upworthy, and LOGO. He lives in Los Angeles and wants to buy a pet snake, but nobody in his life will allow him to do that.

Shot entirely in Houston at their former St. John High School, the result of their recent collaboration is CLINGER, a blood-soaked coming of age film about the horrors of first love.
