Episode 6, “Fight the Bite”, by Laura Anderson, is currently being edited and we will let you know when the episode is going to be released!

We are in pre-production of our final Volume 1 episodes, which we hope to crowdfund early this year to shoot in the first half of 2017.

First up will be “Trapped”, a minisode that takes place immediately after “Fight the Bite”, and will see the return of Scottish actress Katrina Bryan as the kind, caring werewolf Jenny Connor.

And finally there will be episode 7, “Inhuman Nature” (title to be confirmed) where everything we’ve built up from our first episode will come to a head as Maya Hedges reaches Martin Carmichael and faces off against The Cult of Many Faces and powerful werewolf assassin Alexis.

Following this we hope to storyline a 2nd volume, bringing some new writers on board before we start the process of funding each new episode and filming them. We have no timescale for this but as we have news we’ll release it here.

And that’s our news so for January!

We’ve just submitted “The New Recruit” to be considered for selection for this year’s Webfest Berlin! Regardless of being selected or not, we will be entered into their digital catalogue for distributors and sales agents to see, which allows us to continue our exposure for the show.

Once we find out if we’ve been selected we’ll post the update! In the meantime, familiarise yourself with our official first episode below!

In Crimson Is Now Available To Watch – Support Our Indie Webseries

It’s finally here! After successfully hitting our crowdfunding target and shooting the 4th episode of our web-series, “In Crimson” is finally available to watch!

6 Months after Maya Hedges (Ellen Patterson) successfully passed her training, things have not been going well for the new recruit. Struggling to learn the ever-changing protocols for the Paranormal Investigation Team Scotland and balance the working relationship with her ex-boyfriend Martin Carmichael, Maya is feeling the strain. When troubled werewolf Alexis (Innes Anderson) aka Lycan A202 strikes again, it’s up to Maya and Martin to get to the bottom of it, but this is no ordinary crime scene. The Cult of Many Faces is ready to strike and he will take no prisoners…

Co-written by Iain Smith and Fraser Coull, “In Crimson” is the 3rd episode of our volume 1 arc, made up of “The New Recruit”, “Preparing the Weapon” and now “In Crimson”. 3 more episodes are currently being written and we hope to crowdfund the necessary funds to shoot these episodes ASAP.

This is our longest episode to date, clocking in at over 15 minutes! We shot the episode over 2 days in March with our brilliant crew and cast made up of Billy Kirkwood, Innes Anderson, Ellen Patterson, Kenny Boyle, Chris Bain and Karen Bartke.

A behind the scenes featurette on the making of the episode will be available in our future DVD with a shorter version coming to the site very soon.

Episode 4, “Revolution in a Teacup”, written by James T Harding, is in pre-production and we will be raising funds from Monday the 16th of May for 45 days with the intention on shooting for 2 full days in July. Our cast so far include Ellen Patterson, Billy Kirkwood, Innes Anderson, Kenny Boyle, Simon Weir, Mhairi Calvey, Rachel Teate and Sophie Aldred. To find out more about the episode click here.
