As we have done at our Movie Magic news site for independent films, this month we continue our new 2012 focus covering independent, or “Indie” television entertainment productions with an exciting new web series product from My Destiny Productions of Canada; 13-Witches!
This fantastic new web series is described by the creators as:
“13 Witches is the story of 13 sisters who practiced the art of paganism during the 1700s.
The sisters were wrongfully accused of being witches, and in turn, they were tortured, punished, and ultimately burned alive at the stake by those that they loved.
Only one escaped. Her name was Nemesis Sekhmet. Nemesis struck a deal with the devil in order to have her 12 sisters reincarnated. Centuries later, the sisters have come back and seek revenge on all of those who stole their lives from them.”
In these days of tight television budgets due to the continuing fluctuations creating uncertainty in the economy, many studios and networks have turned to shorter pilot television seasons of between 10 to 13 episodes to reduce potential financial exposure in the event a series is not received favorably by the viewing audience.
Others have successfully employed the use of Internet web web series as a method to “seed” scripted television programs to determine if a series is viable as a network television property. The stakes are high and the results are varied, however many have learned a recipe for producing a quality product with believable story arcs..
13 Witches the web series leverages the creative talents Sabine Mondestin featuring a large talented ensemble cast starring many actors from television series and movies we know. The cast and creators endow 13 Witches with a television series look and feel as we learned after meeting and interviewing the gifted and lovely Lauren Watson shared when she guest hosted with WHR on heart health, 13 Witches is a quality production with much thoughtful planning having gone into the execution of the project.
One of the delightful aspects of web series development today as compared to the days of its infancy, is that the medium itself, digital video, via YouTube, Vimeo, Daily Motion, and easy to implement web video players have encouraged a rapid growth of this burgeoning Internet genre to the delight of the the fans who enjoy seeing new entertainment products.
Therefore, in order to thrive, web series must, based upon their own creative merits, produce a compelling product to attract viewers or face withering competition in today’s fast moving entertainment landscape.
Some series in specific have achieved stellar status such as Sanctuary which originally launched as a web series in late 2007 to become a hit television program for four seasons.
With the decline of science fiction scripted series, fantasy series like “13 Witches” series have enjoyed a resurgence on television, movie and critically, in the Internet web series arena as we discussed with Lauren Watson in her recent interview (above).
Launching in a few weeks from now in April 2012, 13 Witches is poised to repeat web series successes of the past with a compellingly dark sexy Internet adventure!
The 13 Witches team has done a good job of raising awareness for their product by releasing an ongoing series of fun and enjoyable behind the scenes (BTS) videos documenting the progress of the production attracting some 100,000 views of the recently released promotional trailer and behind the scenes videos included below.
We include the press release and the rest of the beautiful “13 Witches” for your enjoyment!
