A Behind-the-Scenes Look at The Captured Bird
One of our most anticipated short films of this year is the directorial debut of former editor-in-chief of Rue Morgue magazine, Jovanka Vuckovic, "The Captured Bird", and today she posted several behind-the-scenes photos from the first day of shooting along with an update on the project.
Here's what Vockovic had to say on Twitter about her progress thus far: "Day one was a huge success! Two more to go."
"The Captured Bird" is a darkly poetic fable that begins with a little girl drawing figures of people with chalk on the cement of a playground. She takes notice of an unusual crack in the pavement that is seeping a mysterious black fluid, which she follows to an ominous building. Inside, she encounters several bizarre phenomena, including walls that bleed black and tentacles that emerge from the ceiling to touch her. She then witnesses the birth of five terrifying supernatural beings that threaten the existence of her world.
"The Captured Bird", starring Skyler Wexler, has already been accepted, even before being shot, to the prestigious Fantasia International Film Festival in Montreal, Mexico's Morbido Film Fest, the UK's Sheffield Horror Film Festival, LA's Viscera Film Festival, The Boston Underground Film Festival, Edmonton's DEDfest and Colorado's Telluride Horror Show. Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas and the Toronto After Dark Film Festival, among others, have also already shown interest. Given writer/director Vuckovic's and executive producer Guillermo del Toro's combined pedigree in the horror industry, the film will no doubt play the majority of international genre film festivals.
