We've had our eyes on Richard Rowntree's horror-thriller Dogged for a few months now, initially reviewing the conceptual short film that would eventually spawn the kickstarter campaign for it's feature-film. Today we are glad to announce that initial shooting of the production has finally begun, which means we are now that much closer to seeing this greatly anticipated project reach the finish line. Best part? We have some awesome media (along with a detailed press release) to share with you, guaranteed to get the salivary glands pumping full-time.
The short film on which “Dogged” is based is still doing the festival circuit, and will be
screening at Horrible Imaginings Film Festival in San Diego on September 11th
among others. At just four minutes long, it took almost a year to adapt into a feature
length film, and has many of the same cast & crew on board. It promises to expand
on the themes and style of the short, which finished joint fifth on the BBC 3 talent
show “The Fear” in late 2015, which was designed to unearth the most promising
new horror directors as judged by Eduardo Sanchez (The Blair Witch Project).
In praise of the short:
Filming locations include Osea Island in Essex (setting of “The Woman In Black”) and other Hammer favourites within a short distance of the world famous Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire.
