It’s time to introduce some of our key crew members! First up is Jan Roth, main partner in crime in the production of “Die Farbe”. He returned to “The Dreamlands” two months ago from his freelance work for the German animated feature film “The 7th Dwarf” that will be released next year in theaters.
We can’t show you what he is modelling, texturing and animating right now for “The Dreamlands”, but it ‘s going to be something really special! You will see it in March.
In the meantime you can read more about Jan here in the new crew section of our website. We will continue to introduce other crew members from time to time in the next two months.
Happy holidays to all!
Many thanks for the positive feedback we have received so far! We’re glad that so many enjoyed our first teaser trailer. Next up is Christmas time and so we thought we should show you the slightly revised video message we recorded for the H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival in Los Angeles at the end of September. Audience there could watch an early version of the teaser trailer. And since we had no website at that point, we thought we should explain a few things about this project and have some fun. Some of you have already asked us why we’re waiting so long, indicating they’re already convinced to support us. Here is the answer by co-producer Ephraim Wörner:
We won’t sit around daydreaming though: Work on the second and third teaser trailer has already begun. Our contributing illustrators (we call them ‘visionaries’) have started to sketch out design concepts. We are collecting ideas for interesting rewards that we can offer you in March. And we will shoot our campaign video in the next few weeks – which definitely will turn out better than this first experiment here.
Many thanks to Jody Lindke from California who gave us permission to use her lovely Cthulhu Claus in our video message. You can see her Cthulhu Claus Greeting Cards here on Kickstarter where her project was successfully funded a year ago. Be quick and follow this link if you would like to purchase some cards in time for this coming Christmas!
Here it is – our first teaser trailer for “The Dreamlands”!
We hope that you enjoy this glimpse that all but goes beyond the Wall of Sleep and will follow our further progress. Don’t forget to stay in touch via Facebook, Twitter, Google+ or by subscribing to our newsletter!
On the occassion of launching our new website at www.the-dreamlands.com director Huan Vu has given Weird Tales Magazine an exclusive interview and a first sneak peek at our first teaser trailer:
A great honour, since this is the very same magazine that launched the careers of great authors like Ray Bradbury, Robert E. Howard – and H.P. Lovecraft. Founded in 1923 and resurrected in 1988 its mission has remained till this day to publish brilliantly strange material that can’t be found elsewhere. See more at: weirdtalesmagazine.com
