CBS Films has launched a pretty lame Halloween viral for The Woman in Black that uses motion capture technology as part of the experience. It’s very “one note”.
WhatDidTheySee.com invites users to take a look inside Eel Marsh House and discover the answer to “What did they see?” Visitors have only a partially obscured view, just enough to see through the doorway and into this young girl’s room. By using motion recognition with the computer’s webcam, visitors to the site can shift their perspective within the room by simply moving right & left in front of their own computer to see what lurks behind the door and in the shadows. No matter how scared you get (and you totally won’t), expect to receive your own customized photo, compliments of The Woman in Black.
You can see my honest reaction above. In theaters February 3, “the story follows a young lawyer, Arthur Kipps (Radcliffe), who is ordered to travel to a remote village and sort out a recently deceased client’s papers. As he works alone in the client’s isolated house, Kipps begins to uncover tragic secrets, his unease growing when he glimpses a mysterious woman dressed only in black. Receiving only silence from the locals, Kipps is forced to uncover the true identity of the Woman in Black on his own, leading to a desperate race against time when he discovers her true intent.“
