As we get closer to the launch of Bxx: Haunted, our coverage here on Dread Central is ramping up, starting with an exclusive video interview with creator Daniel Knauf along with a second teaser for the project.
In this first interview with Knauf, he describes the process that led to the creation of the Bxx concept and gives us some insights into how the project developed into what we’ll see in Bxx: Haunted.
Bxx: Haunted is an entirely new form of cinematic storytelling, leveraging the technology of the Internet. Shot over 48 hours using dozens of cameras, Knauf has taken almost 800 hours of raw video and created a non-linear story that is meant to be viewed as one browses the Net: follow what interests you, browse deeper to learn more, back out and go somewhere else if you get bored.
The goal is to have viewers create the experience they want to see, to more or less become filmmakers creating their own experience on the fly.
For his first work in this new format, Knauf chose to tell the story of a paranormal investigation gone very, very wrong. Six people, one house, 48 hours. What will happen?
Thanks to Daniel and his Bxx cohorts for providing this exclusive look into the project! Bxx: Haunted is coming in just a few weeks so keep watching DC for more coverage as we come closer to the opening of the official Bxx: Haunted website. For access, be sure to follow @BxxWeb on Twitter, where Knauf and Co. will begin doling out access to the site soon.
