Last June, we here at LRM announced our partnership with the creators of the cult hit film Circle to bring the 8-episode DARK/WEB horror anthology digital series to the small screen. With that announcement, we launched a contest that would incorporate a short script from one of our readers into an episode of the series, and a couple weeks back, we announced that winner to be Christopher Webster with his killer script, “Hacked.”



Production has been underway for some time now, and we’re proud to announce that the filmmakers have finished shooting the serialized “wraparound” portion of the series, and the filmmakers will now commence production on six anthology segments that make up DARK/WEB’s unique hybrid narrative structure. 

Over the next two months, six different filmmakers will tackle six varied horror anthologies, each with a different point of view on the dangers of a totally connected world. These will touch on themes of isolation, cyberterror, the dangers of “insta-fame,” and many other terrifying real life occurrences happening on the deep, dark web. 

To celebrate the momentous milestone of finishing production of the serialized portion of the show, we thought we’d give youloyal LRM readers an extra peek inside the filmmaking process with these behind-the-scenes photos from Episodes 2 and 3 of the digital series.

Check them out below, along with the commentary of Michael Nardelli, who stars in the series and serves as one of its primary writer/producers!

Rest assured, this is only the tip of the iceberg. Every Wednesday, we here at LRM plan to bring you a new look at the behind-the-scenes action — from character profiles to creator interviews and set videos — we want to give you an unprecedented look at the entire filmmaking process. We hope you will join us in what will be a fun and insightful world of the DARK/WEB.

Below is the official synopsis for the DARK/WEB digital series:

“When Ethan (Elerding), Sam (McKissack) and James (Nardelli) find themselves the target of cryptic emails from someone posing as their childhood friend Molly (Gonzales), they assume she’s been the victim of an all-too-common hack. After they reach out to alert her, however, they discover that Molly’s been missing for months and no one has any idea what happened to her. As the emails keep coming, each containing a tale written by Molly, her friends realize that this may be more than just a sick joke. Someone has hidden information in the stories, details pulled from real life that point them to people and places from Molly’s past; clues that may lead them to their missing friend. DARK/WEB’s unique structure combines the classic, standalone stories traditionally found in an anthology with an overarching, season-long mystery.”

DARK/WEB will hit LRM exclusively in Early 2017.
