About this project
"Ghostings: The Web Series" is as much a revival as it is a re-imagining of the horror anthology series. Inspired largely by childhood folk tales and scary stories, Ghostings takes the same short form concept and kicks it up a notch, these are not your kid's scary stories. A series of at least 6 micro-short nightmares clocking in at 5 minutes or less, Ghostings will pack a visual punch so visceral and unnerving it's sure to stay with you into the night.
With a team assembled of the top talent Philadelphia has to offer, our major hurdle is funding. The series is headed up by the award winning team Daniel Brown and Kate McMeans of Wide Eyed Pictures. Horror photographer and artist extraordinaire Joseph Beaulieu brings his beautifully twisted vision to the table and effects guru Delia de Cock will be supplying most of the effects.
Ghostings is merely a starting point. The potential of the project is enormous and we hope to eventually have it serve as an open invitation to Philadelphia film makers, artists, writers and messed up minds as a platform to showcase their own fears through stunning visuals. Any generosity past $5,000 will simply go back into production and into making this web series a staple of the Philadelphia film and art world.
Risks and challenges
This project will push in areas we've never gone before. We designed it to. With such effects and visually dependent concept and scripts we knew we needed a top notch team to back us up, which we're proud to say we've secured. Additionally so many shorts require many actors, locations and complex scheduling. This is something we're no stranger to. Our first film "Emily in the A.M" starred no less than seven actors and took place in about ten different locations. That's a lot of ground of a 30 minute featurette. We're aware of the challenges this project will bring and so we've allowed for a year of production, and to release the shorts as they're made.
There is of course the risk of re-shoots, losing locations and corrupted files in post production. While these are all possibilities and issues we've indeed dealt with in the past, we've always made our way through the problems and come out in the end with a great product.
The great thing about a web series is that we are the be-all and end-all from development to films ready to watch online. We are a single pipeline, ready to present the films on our YouTube channel and website. Our home studio is equipped and ready to edit and press hard copy DVD's for those who contributed for those rewards and we're partnered with CreateSpace to print in bulk if needed. We've done this before on our previous short films and we can certainly do it again.
This will also be the first time working with a third party and their own reward; the custom soundtrack from our composer and we're committed to making sure each of the limited edition 66 soundtracks are shipped out safely and in a timely manner to the lucky investors.
Truly, our biggest hurdle now is funding to get the project started, and that's where you come in!
