Over the course of my career in video games, comic books and animation I have had the pleasure of working with some amazing talent. Most notable are the writers and animators. Vaughn Ross, Storyboard artist at Lucas Arts once showed a werewolf transformation he animated for the cartoon Guardians of Luna. It was an amazingly detailed transition for a young adult cartoon. The flesh bubbled up before ripping apart to reveal the fur-covered skin underneath. It was brilliant stuff, to be sure.
The coming TV show Hemlock Grove, produced by Eli Roth has just shot out a bit of marketing magic that shows a scene from the show where a similar transformation takes place. Hemlock Grove doesn’t air until April 19th and will be a Netflix original series. It’s based on the novel by Brian McGreevy. The cast includes Famke Janssen, Dougray Scott, and some familiars from the highly acclaimed Battlestar Galactica series.
Hemlock Grove is an unusual TV series. All 13 episodes are completed and will be available on Netflix. So if you’re like us and like to binge-eat your favorite media, then get ready for a mighty supernatural marathon come this April 19th.
