The October countdown is on for MWG’s supernatural thriller web series, Camera Obscura which is now just a week away. The new exclusive preview content out today includes the first continuous clip from the series, a minute’s worth of an episode, which gives another brief tease into this dark chiller from director Drew Daywalt.
Reagan Dale Neis stars as Clara who gets left an old book from her grandfather (Jack Klugman) that turns out to be filled with some nasty creatures from a parallel dimension. Opening the book lets them loose and that means Clara must take grandpa’s old camera with the help of an LA police detective (Donnie Jeffcoat) and recapture those bad boys, Ghostbusters style.
Also out is a short behind-the-scenes look at how the heck they pulled off those special makeup and creature effects. The show’s special effects EPK (below) is worth a look if that’s your thing and you want to try to reverse engineer that Splinter fellow (pictured right). Creature effects artist Jeffrey S. Farley of Obscure Artifacts handles the effects and Dirk Von Besser and Mikal Sky crafting the makeup and sculpting. The video could be longer, as this one is just a tease. But fans will probably have to wait for the DVD for the full version.
Camera Obscura premieres online in late October. See below for the trailer.
