Last year I posted about a Kickstarter campaign for filmmaker Kevin McTurk's Victorian Ghost Story Puppet Film. The Kickstarter was very successful (making double the original goal of $32,000) and from the looks of this new teaser what McTurk has put together here is absolutely stunning. I'm not sure when we'll get to see the completed film, but I cannot wait to see it.
The Mill At Calder's End - Official Teaser HD from Kevin McTurk on Vimeo.
"The Mill at Calder's End is a gothic ghost story in the spirit of Edgar Allan Poe and H.P. Lovecraft that will be told with 30 inch tall bunraku puppets and old fashioned in-camera special effects. Featuring the voices of Jason Flemyng (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,X-Men:First Class) and horror legend Barbara Steele (Black Sunday,The Pit and the Pendulum) , this film celebrates two of my great loves: the art of puppetry and gothic horror."
