Tom Savini Web Series Gets a Teaser!
The style of a silent film meets a modern web format in Flicker.
By Chris Morse
As we previously reported, Tom Savini is co-directing an upcoming web series called Flicker. Yesterday evening, the special effects master shared a first look at the silent film-inspired web series in the form of a teaser trailer. In case you missed it, Flicker is a collaboration between Tom Savini's special effects program and George A. Romero's filmmaking program at the Douglas Education Center. Joining Savini in the directors' chairs are Robert Tinnell and Tina Romero, who you may remember is directing her own feature-length film called Queens of the Dead. These three have come together in bringing this silent film-style web series to life, and I've got to say it looks pretty cool. Check out the teaser below.
