Mike Pecci and Production Designer Travis Harrington travel to Philadelphia, PA to work with biochemist and micro-photographer Linden Gledhill on creating practical monster effects for Pecci's upcoming 12 Kilometers Prologue.
“12 Kilometers was originally an idea I had for a short four years ago,” says Pecci. I read about this drill team in Russia that had drilled the deepest hole known to man. A Christian media outlet got their hands on the news and claimed that the Russians were lowering microphones into the planet and heard the sounds of hell. Inspired by that, I wrote a short about a drill team that finds an organism at 12KM that can communicate physically and is triggered by sound. It scared the hell out of me as a short, but I wanted it to become something bigger, so I shelved it. The adventure I went on while recovering from my head injury gave me the connective tissue I needed to create a world under the influence of this creature. A world after 12 Kilometers!” Visit the kickstarter
