If you're looking for an extra dimension in your enjoyment of comic books then creator Freematik has put together an impressive new truly immersive comic experience. 'Dark Moon' is the latest creation from the artist/producer who has a personal passion for combining his love of music and comics. Both the print and the digital versions of 'Dark Moon' will feature a downloadable soundtrack which you listen to whilst you read. Whilst an online version will also be made available where the music is sequenced to the scenes much like watching a movie. 'Dark Moon' has a dark sci-fi/horror atmosphere and the uniquely composed music and sound FX have managed to add to that atmosphere and give it an extra audible energy that has to be experienced. Check out the teaser below!
Freematik, hopes to "go much further down the rabbit hole" in the future with this unique combination of medias and its obvious how much work has gone in to honing his creation, "we've spent as much time on sound design and soundtrack for this comic than most people do for feature length movies" he states ,"this really helps to put our fans in a completely different universe".
"I've always been somewhat obsessed with the combination of sound and images to create a powerful visceral sensation, and while movies are a prime example of this, for example John Carpenter's film music, or David Lynch's use of sound FX to add to the emotional impact of the scene, I wanted to bring this into the comic world, which to me offers a more unrestrictive approach to storytelling, and so far our initial results have been exactly what I was hoping for!"
The first pilot episode, available in digital and print all of which will incorporate the new immersive experience, is due for release this coming Halloween. There will also be a version available for free viewing, which will have a sequenced "movie feel" for fans to enjoy. After the initial pilot launch, 'Dark Moon' will be seeking a publisher to take their unique ideas to the next level.
