Indie Corner - Trailer for supernatural thriller Comforting Skin

23 August 2011 2:06 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The feature debut from writer-director-producer Derek Franson, Comforting Skin is a supernatural thriller about a lonely young woman whose desperate need for emotional and sexual companionship draws her into a surreal and ultimately destructive relationship with a shifting and whispering tattoo she has willed to life on her skin.

Having shot the film last spring on a budget of $250,000, producers Franson, Justin James and Andrew Webster are now in the final days of completing the film, with just a few effects shots left to complete. The slithering, shifting tattoo character was brought to life through the use of digital animation and compositing techniques, requiring custom code developed by VFX Supervisor Ollie Rankin (The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, The Matrix Revolutions, The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian, Watchmen, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Red Dawn, J. Edgar).

The film stars Victoria Bidewell (Avpr: Aliens vs Predator - Requiem »
