The character of Erich Zann is coming to life…

There are 4 phases that need to be completed to finish your product -  pre-production, production, post-production,  and distribution. I am proud to say that our pre-production and production phases have been completed successfully. We now need to keep working to complete the remaining tasks.

Your call is really Important for us…

It was 4.30 p.m, and our Head of Department Jessica (fearless and assertive  leader I [...]

Pawn the Replay…

The days are winding down and so is the money …yet, it feels like there is still so much to do. Our 3D guys are having difficulty with finalizing and committing to the green screen flooring. They have to create a floor, which will be time consuming. We have since decided that throwing a rug down would eliminate the tedious [...]

Who are those crazy people?
Looking good Matt! Wait.. What's that smell..?

Things for the Ritual
Old books predicting C'Thulhu coming back

After we had the “Ritual” (a.k.a Script) in our hands, we had to make a really detailed list of the things need it to call C’Thulhu. We started with the most important ones: The Location and the Servants (that would play Joseph and the Professor roles). We though those ones would be the hardest ones to get. How wrong we [...]

The Haggard Man

Here is our actor Matt Willems before he was turned into the ” Haggard Man”.
Notice that amazing beard, yes its real!

Spray Tan! We needed Matt to look like he was stranded out in the middle of the ocean for a week, and after a couple layers he looked nice and sun burnt.

Christa Monroe, our make-up artist did an [...]
