The Twisted Tales for Demented Children World
After raging fires consume much of the city, residents seek shelter wherever they can find it – many fleeing to underground sanctuary. The world is introduced to a new weapon of terror and destruction so horrific it cracks open a rift between what is real and what is imagined. Children are separated from their parents, surviving in the voids that have been created. The Twisted Tales for Demented Children series takes place within this world, one not confined by standard rules. Scattered to the winds, seven children, once bound together, must forge their way in a universe where one’s actions can have devastating consequences.
Skeleton Girl, the first film in the series, opened to wide acclaim, winning Best First 3D Film at its premiere in New York in 2012 at Be Film the Underground Film Festival. Canada’s first film shot in native 3D and stop motion, it went on to tour film festivals around the world and was chosen as one of Canada’s top short films in 2013 by CBC’s Short Film Face Off. On our new Twisted Tales for Demented Children website, you can find out more about the making and telling of Skeleton Girl. Scroll across the screen of the Skeleton Girl home page and click on the red glowing skulls to learn more about the characters and the background of the story. You will also find a selection of Skeleton Girl wallpaper for your phone, computer or tablet and lots of other goodies.
We have started preliminary work on the next film Mary and The Looking Glass, and will post updates here on the blog, as well as the website as we move forward.
In the meantime, we hope you enjoy the new website where all things Twisted Tales for Demented Children will live. The talented folks at Wild Forest designed and built it for us. The featured photo above is a behind the scenes shot of the crypts and the graveyard pieces that we still had remaining from Skeleton Girl so Wild Forest could take photos to use in the panorama you see on the Skeleton Girl home page. Let us know what you think of the site. If you like it, post comments and share the site. If you don’t like it, tell us why so we can improve it.
*For those of you who may be new to the world of Skeleton Girl, a special Collector’s Edition of the 2D film in both DVD and Blu-ray is now available by clicking the Visit the Store button on the main menu in the website or by clicking here.
