Yesterday we gathered in a studio in Stuttgart-Neugereut to shoot the final scene for our preview. It’s a scene we initially planned to create as full CG animation, but we decided to opt for a greenscreen shoot with an actor in full costume instead, since the result could be much better in terms of quality and believability. And it turned out to be true: It’s just a small scene, but it was worth all the effort! Behind the scenes pictures will follow soon!
We made it back to reality – just in time! Today was the deadline for the H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival Los Angeles that will take place this weekend. Among many Lovecraftian short films and movies, that will be screened there, attendees will be able to watch a very first look on our project in form of an excerpt of the full preview that we’re currently working on. Most VFX shots are still unfinished so it’s a rather refrained but also very moody sequence that will have its premiere in San Pedro in a few days.
The same teaser will also be screened in Stockholm in October at the third H.P. Lovecraft Festival and in Portland, Oregon at Best of the H.P. Lovecraft Film Fest. We’re very curious about the feedback by Lovecraft fans and hope they will support us on this journey!
