The "A Murky Path Down Archer Avenue" short doc will be online before Christmas but after Thanksgiving.
I realized that there's this one scene that we'll be shooting--a scary moment!--that I don't know how to create the monster's practical makeup effects properly yet. It's not terribly expensive or anything like that but the inspiration for the scene that I want to do is technically tricky and I have to be able to figure out how they did it.
The visual inspiration for the scene that I'm aiming for is kind of in the realm of the Lucio Fulci zombie movies. Google some images and you'll see what I mean. Deeply unpleasant but effective stuff (you'll agree, I'm 100% sure of it).
I'm not sure that I can pull off something to the extent of super-duperness that the Fulci team (Gianetto De Rossi, specifically) created but we're aiming for something along those lines. We're going to do the best that we can! I have a couple of weeks to make that happen. Thankfully the actor who will be playing the ghouls (undead monks, not the kind that you want to bump into) is very calm and agreeable.
In the meantime, here are a few additional images from "A Murky Path" so far:
