Last year Alex Slevin of FoG Films tried to crowdfund his fan film, From the Lost Days – Silent Hill 15th Anniversary Film, a live action feature film that adapted both the Silent Hill & Silent Hill 3 video games through Kickstarter. Unfortunately the project wasn’t funded back then but thankfully the team is trying again on Indieogogo!
Fans may remember FoG Film’s first foray in the Silent Hill fan film territory with their adaption of Silent Hill 2, Broken Notes, back in 2008. Like Broken Notes, From the Lost Days will be shot in Spanish but will be subtitled in English with more language subtitles options hopefully in the future.
The campaign has 20 days left to reach their goal of €2,500 EUR. If the project reaches its crowdfunding goal filming will begin next month in various locations in the Alicante province of Spain, with a tentative release sometime in the first quarter of 2016.
From interview with Alex last year and seeing the cast, location photos and pre production artwork on the Facebook and Indiegogo page I am really excited to see Lost Days happen! The first game is my favorite in the series so it will be a real treat to see a more faithful film adaptation.
Full Press Release
for his next film “FROM THE LOST DAYS,” a new adaptation of the cult Silent Hill video game series.
The first attempt to adapt the Silent Hill series came with “BROKEN NOTES” which was done with a very low budget but nevertheless It had a significant impact on the internet thanks to fans of the popular franchise created by Konami in 1999. This group of filmmakers has decided to launch a more solid and ambitious project for which they seek funds and other support through the crowdfunding platform Indiegogo.
The aim is to create a faithfully adaptation of the Sillent Hill plot and characters trying to move away from the typical clichés and commercial film conventions in this type of productions.
“FROM THE LOST DAYS” is an adaptation of the first and third Silent Hill games. It has the enigmatic plot, the strange places and the even stranger characters taken from the games, but arranged to create a coherent single feature film.
If the project reaches the crowdfunding goal it will be filmed in various locations in the province of Alicante in Spain during August 2015.
The objective is to deliver the film in the first quarter of 2016.
