story

'616' is set mainly in the present day, but there are storylines and characters which span the whole of human history.

The story grew from the biblical number of the beast, which we all know as 666 of course, but there are older scrolls which gave the number as 616.
They say it's a mistranslation of the name of the Roman emporer Nero... but what if it wasn't... What if that number refers to a more ancient legend of a terrible evil which could one day return to the world and a trinity of immortal warriors sworn to prevent it... In this way, '616' embeds itself into the various religions and mythologies of the world and grounds this fantastical story firmly in what we know as reality.

We are making a prologue, the first three episodes of the series, and an accompanying character vlog, twitter feed and website which will link the series back to the original short film. The plan is then to enter these pilot episodes into webseries festivals and use them to pitch for funding for a full series.

We'll let you know how that goes!

production

'616' began life as a gore-fest B movie feature script, which we made first as a short film and you can watch that here.

We have now developed the idea into a more mainstream fantasy/horror series, in the tradition of Buffy/Supernatural etc. However, at its heart the entirely original horror concept remains... and like all great ideas it's ridiculously simple!

Shooting for the pilot episodes is ongoing, but we are now beginning to finalise sections for sound and vfx. You can take a sneaky peek at one of the test vfx effect shots here.
