It was a blast to make, and takes place in the world I began writing in several years ago when I still owned and ran Ravenhorde Studios. As we went into filming we planned to continue the story line with other short films, and web series releases. I had written the majority of the story that followed another HAVOC. However during filming we kept getting asked the same questions by our cast and crew, and the idea behind “Ghost Stories: The Package” was born.
Over the last 3 months I have written a new story arc and screenplay based on the same world. This time we have a personal story, no longer focused on a team, but a single highly trained man, and his trials and tribulations in the wasteland that America has become. The focus now is to reveal more of the setting of City 7, exposing bits of the world and getting into the uncomfortable questions of “who, when and why”.
With a finalized script, we are officially moving into pre-production. Gears shift and I become a Producer and organizer. Responsible for raising money, designing props, costumes, and figuring out make-up direction. Peter, our Director, and I are also looking at filming locations and contacting the community to raise awareness about our project. We have taken a different path this time, and will be making a 12 and 14 episodes web series. Be sure to follow our progress on our Facebook page, as well as visiting out Indiegogo Campaign to look over our awesome perks.
I also started a production blog via Tumblr, and will be updating Worldcrafter with the art/development side of the project.
