This is our spooky poster design for our 1930’s sci fi promotion trailer (click poster for video link). The film was shot over the course of a week using our staff and friends as cast with locations all over Beijing; from the hutongs of nan luo gu xiang to the abandoned factory spaces of 798. The death ray itself was constructed following the specifications of Dr. Grordborts original design. Post production took about a week to turn our crisp sound and film into what you see and hear today. Thanks to everyone! Now settle in, crank your sound and simply enjoy the terror.
As the title may suggest, we’re currently tracking down locations in Beijing to use for our promo video. We’re shooting a fake 1950’s style horror / sci fi movie trailer, so we’re running around town to find suitable sites for an alien invasion and then 1950-fying them. Here’s a selection of our before and after location tests.
