Independent British Film Company Producing Next Blair Witch?

By: William Wood

An independent British Film Company based in London, UK, are producing a Feature Film on the paranormal activity at Crowley Hall. Walrus Films are a small film company that have produced short films and music videos up until now. This is their first venture into the World of Independent Feature Film Production.

The hauntings at Crowley Hall had been previously reported in the press, and brought to the attention of the company when ghost hunter Arron Kasady decided to make a documentary on the occurrences. Company director Daren Marc saw the opportunity the documentary presented, and seized the opportunity to produce and direct the film.

Scheduled for release around Halloween 2007, the film makers are going to use the internet to sell the 'The Ghosts of Crowley hall' to the World, and are taking intending on playing Hollywood at their own game. The internet presents new selling opportunities that have not yet been exploited in full by film makers.

Big Hollywood Companies possess budgets that Walrus Films cannot compete with. However, the internet levels the playing field to some degree, and gives more opportunities to the smaller independent film companies to compete with the big names.

It is now possible to reach a World-wide market through the internet, and reach an audience that had been previously inaccessible to the low-budget film maker. Websites are cheap to set-up and many are now free, and with advertising being accessible to anybody on a modest budget, it is now possible to reach a mass market.

Walrus Films are using popular video sharing websites such as YouTube and MySpace to promote their film, using video clips and trailers.

Sales through the internet and becoming the norm, particularly in entertainment such as DVD. Outlets such as and Amazon will be their shop to the World as these filmmakers sell 'The Ghosts of Crowley Hall' to anybody who wants to see it.

It will be interesting too see how the film market develops in this new arena, as focus shifts away from the costly methods of theatrical distribution, and into the realm of internet marketing and video-on-demand services. Will 'The Ghosts of Crowley Hall' be able to make its mark on the World through the internet? Or will it merely go un-noticed in the ever increasing stream of video internet traffic?
