Sanctuary, new innovative web series with a buffy-esque heroine. It is a new show produced outside of studio involvement for distribution online first, and will feature Dr. Helen Magnus(Amanda Tapping), "157-year old woman who seeks out all manner of terrifying and monstrous creatures" and her daughter Ashley Magnus (Emille Ullerup) "more kick-ass and Buffy-esque". Interesting aspects : mostly green screen, shot in HD, interactive gaming and social networking, direct contact between makers and fans.
I have to admit I have been following this closely not just because of the interesting story concept but also in the way it is being produced and released. If this works out with people paying per webisode or subscribing, then it means more genre work can be made without studio interference especally if there is a dedicated fanbase.
- 2 minute trailer(HD or lower resolutions) is released and can be seen at http://www.sanctuaryforall.com/
- The first 4 webisodes will be free after that there is charging.
- In built media player that allows people to take snapshots and store to computer.
- Writer/producer blogsite : http://sanctuaryforall.blogspot.com/
- Backgrounds used for the actual show will be used for the game.
- Shot in Vancouver, BC. Go Canada!
Sorry for the overload there, but I am really really excited!
