Strange Aeons: An Oz adaptation of Shadow Over Innsmouth seeks $2K in 19 days.

Writer and director James Latter and producer Yuri Higashino have taken to Kickstarter to raise funds for their indie film adaptation of the H.P. Lovecraft classic short story, "The Shadow Over Innsmouth," out in Australia.

Latter has "spent the last few years honing his film making skills in freelance music videos, commercials, corporate videos, short films and documentaries. He has recently shot a documentary in rural Queensland and directed a punk/hardcore music video shot in Melbourne." Yuri Higashino "is a content producer based in Brisbane, Australia. She has produced a wide range of creative projects including short films and music videos. Her interest expands to the new media platform and transmedia storytelling."

Timothy Nguyen has been providing storyboards for the production.

They've already made it past the 50% mark, which is good news. As with any of these projects, the more money they raise, the more they can improve production values. 

They don't have enough to rival the budget of Dagon, but I think the prospect of an adaptation of "Shadow Over Innsmouth" through an Oz lens is intriguing enough that I encourage you to consider supporting it.
