I had the pleasure of meeting Guillermo del Toro on multiple occasions through my journies in Los Angeles. He is by far one of the most down to earth film directors I’ve ever met. He is a certified cinematic genius. From the magical Pan’s Labyrinth to the Oscar-winning Shape of Water Guillermo has proven again and again he is a master storyteller.
That’s why it is fascinating to see how it all started. Guillermo del Toro’s first film Geometria is a 1987 short fantasy horror comedy film written and directed by the master. It is based loosely on Fredric Brown’s short story, Naturally, which was originally published in Beyond Fantasy Fiction and later reprinted in the short story collection Honeymoon in Hell. His micro-budget was under $2000. Enjoy!
