If the call of Cthulhu beckons you, instead of making you ask, “What's a Cthulhu?” then do we have the right Kickstarter for you.
Local actor and screenwriter Michael Keene is trying to raise $15,000 to create a Lovecraftian web series pilot to option to distributors. Lovecraft, named after the author H.P. Lovecraft, is a special type of horror genre originating in the early 20th century that focuses on the unknowable and supernatural.
Keene’s series, The Dream Cycle of Randolph Carter
, follows an author trying to stave off insanity after discovering a mystical cult and a cosmic conspiracy. The pilot will be shot in Charleston and will premiere in spring of 2014. On Sept. 25 at 6 p.m., the cast and crew will host a meet-and-greet at Collective Coffee in Mt. Pleasant, where you can learn more about the project and chat with other Lovecraft enthusiasts.
The larger Kickstarter goal is to raise $150,000 to create the whole eight episode season. Currently, the project has over $1,000 and less than twenty days to go. You can donate till October 13 here
