It’s a pretty common occurrence for actors to go from in front of the camera to being behind it in the director’s chair, but a movie poster artist? That’s exactly what Thomas ‘The Dude Designs’ Hodge, the man behind the most iconic one sheets of the last decade, has decided to do with his directorial debut Teddy Bears Picnic. With a World Premiere at Horror Channel
With a World Premiere at Horror Channel FrightFest this weekend take a look at the poster below and eerie teaser series. As well as appearing in the short film showcase there will be the chance to experience another layer to the story with a 360 VR experience that combines analog VHS techniques. Serving as a proof of concept keep an eye out for the project on the film festival circuit and other spaces as the tale takes root with the intention of expanding to a feature.
Inspired by the 1907 melody of the same name, Teddy Bears Picnic re-envisions the childhood song as a nightmarish fable that twists the concept of childhood innocence.
Starring Abby Miller (Justified, Aquarius & The Sinner TV series), Laurence R Harvey (Human Centipede 2+3, ABCs of Death 2 & The Editor) and Lorelei Winterfrost.
