IN A FOREIGN TOWN Premieres Internationally and Drops a TRAILER!

We are  delighted to announce (or as we say in French, “Nous sommes ravis d’annoncer”)  that IN A FOREIGN TOWN, our short horror film based on the works Thomas Ligotti, will be having its International Premiere at the Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival (BIFFF).

Since not everyone we know can make it to Brussels… we’ve decided to release the trailer for the film to the world for the very first time. You can check it out below.

 

For those who are able to make it to Belgium, the screening will take place on Tuesday, April 16th at 8:00 PM at the Bozar Palace in Brussels.

TICKETS can be purchased on the BIFFF website.

Written and Directed by Michael Shlain, IN A FOREIGN TOWN stars Yuri Lowenthal (SPIDER-MAN PS4), Tony Amendola (ONCE UPON A TIME, ANNABELLE), David Rees Snell (S.W.A.T., THE SHIELD) and Jack McGraw (GODLESS).

The short is a proof-of-concept prequel for an anthology series that we are developing and will be presenting at the Canneseries In Development Forum next week.

In the meantime, to learn more about Thomas Ligotti and order his books, visit Penguin Random House.

Butcher Bird Studios Changes Media Landscape Forever with EARTH SHATTERING Interactive Cat Pee Video!!!1

Check out our newest interactive project for client Buzzfeed via innovative interactive platform Eko, “Pickles goes to Silverlake”.

In quite possibly the most important piece of creative we’ve ever taken on, Pickles the Cat needs to get to Silverlake to pee in his litterbox, and the viewer uses the interactive platform Eko to navigate Pickles through a harrowing incident with the police, a painful conversation with an eco-conscious hipster, and clogged LA freeways. 

Director Jason Milligan took 5 minutes off from saving the planet to say this about the video; “I fought through my cat allergies to complete this project because I knew that this is a video that the world NEEDED TO SEE. The lessons the audience learns while helping Pickles drive a car to pee in a nice place are so pivotal, primal, and profitable to the people whom inhabit this rock we call Earth that I was willing to risk my own life in order to make this happen.”

We built over 20 nodes for this interactive video so that each viewer will have a unique adventure with Pickles. This means that your decisions MATTER, and that this is not a task that you should take lightly, because if you cause Pickles to eat CBD infused cat-nip at the wrong time, the cat could end up in jail, living with an annoying hipster, or even worse, peeing all over the side of the road. Give it a whirl here to see if you are able to get Pickles to Silverlake before the cat’s bladder bursts!
