Silent Hill: Prelude fan film hits IndieGoGo for funding

The Silent Hill series has a number of fan projects in the work lately. Awhile back I reported on Silent Hill: Anniversary and Lost Days, and since then there’s been a handful of other fan projects in the works, one such being Silent Hill: Prelude. Planned as a 60 minute film set before the events of the first game, Prelude comes to IndieGoGo seeking $52,325 to cover production expenses. The film is being produced by Neil London and written and directed by Edward DeBOY, former Silent Hill Experienced fansite owner (whom you may remember me podcasting with a few years ago).

IndieGoGo reward tiers for backers include the general fare, such as your name in the credits, digital and physical copies, and props.

Shot on a RED Scarlet camera, a teaser/test trailer can be found below showing professional-grade shots.The acting is a little wonky at times, but being test footage, things are subject to change. Full details on the plot and production can be found on the film’s IndieGoGo page.

    Not much time will pass till Konami sue them. They already did it with a British play based on SH2 some years ago, wich had lot less exposure than this.

    I’m rating this as the test footage it is intended to be:

    Looks awful. Acting is awful. Cybil is blonde, not brunette. The only time she has been brunette is in SH:SM which is also the only time we’ve heard anything of her father being a police officer, which makes me concerned of what source material they will pull from. Test footage gives the general viewer no proper clues that it’s even related to Silent Hill.

    1/10 – Do not want

      Maybe they are trying to retcon it so that she dyed her hair 😛

      Not that it matters, this film isn’t gonna happen. No way, no how.

  • EvilResident

    Wow… This is painfully bad.

    I wouldn’t put a single dime into anything that qualifies as a fan film, considering fan films are always hilariously bad. Wasn’t Anniversary that shitty GTA machinima? Yeah, thats not quality.

    A big thing i have with fan film makers wanting money is that money doesn’t assure quality. Money doesn’t make people act better, it doesn’t make better music, etc.

    I’ve just been done with anything from the fans, save for the few Yamaoka inspired albums or that Rebirth game.

    Why do people even bother? This is gonna get put down faster than you can say Old Yeller. You can barely get away making a fan film for free, let alone asking to get money for it.

  • Silent Hill Prelude

    I’m all for free speech but this film is happening and Konami is sparking some interest and might back it. Plus this IS a charity film, if you actually read the page, with ALL ticket sales going directly to Shriners Children’s Hospital. So if you don’t want to support a charity film, that’s totally fine, no one is asking you to help out. I just wanted to make it clear this IS happening. As for the “Test Footage” if you read it, it does say “Test Footage” and it will not be in the final film. So let freedom of speech prevail until North Korea shuts us down. That’s the only way this will stop it from happening.

      This is really funny and, if this is the people behind the movie, a super amateur response to criticism.

      Saying “This is gonna happen” over and over is more likely to make people think that you have to convince yourself it will happen more than that the film will actually happen.

      • Silent Hill Prelude

        I sincerely apologies if this came across negatively and we really appreciate your response. What you have seen is only test footage with a little to no budget. It was meant to show the style we wish to obtain with this film. The opening sequence will be re shot with experienced talent when we make the final product. Any and ALL ticket sales are going to Shriners Children’s Hospital and that is one of our biggest driving forces when creating this picture.

    Cybil was a child in the 1960s. This family looks strangely modern.
