EXCLUSIVE: Ben Templesmith’s ‘Black Sky’ Teaser Trailer

Earlier this year, we gave you the first look at a set of images from “Black Sky,” the upcoming illustrated film by “Welcome To Hoxford” and “Choker” creator (and “30 Days of Night” co-creator) Ben Templesmith. Described as a post-apocalyptic mix of “Band Of Brothers” and an H.P. Lovecraft horror tale, “Black Sky” is directed by Matt Pizzolo (“Godkiller”) and produced by Halo-8 Entertainment, distributors of the “Grant Morrison: Talking With Gods” documentary.

And we have your first, exclusive look at the “Black Sky” teaser…

Planned as both an illustrated film and a comic book, “Black Sky” will debut in early 2011 in both formats. The story is also an original tale by Templesmith, and not an existing comic given the illustrated film treatment.

According to Pizzolo, the difference between an “illustrated film” and a “motion comic” can be compared to “the difference between a movie that was shot in 3-D versus a movie that was shot in 2-D but got a 3-D post-conversion.”

If you’ve been following along at home, you know that “Black Sky” isn’t Pizzolo’s first go-around with the illustrated film medium, either. Pizzolo previously created the well-received illustrated film “Godkiller” for Halo-8 — which you can currently view free on Hulu.

“Black Sky” is scheduled to debut in 2011 from Halo-8 Entertainment.
