Director Kyle Power released a new proof of concept trailer for a found footage mockumentary web series and is looking for the found footage fan community to weigh-in with their comments and interest in this exciting new project.
When we asked Power about the genesis of his latest venture, he told us “Blackout is a web series premiering later this year, which will be released on YouTube. It will share format and release elements with series’ like Marble Hornets, or lonelygirl15. We think that the mockumentary format is under-represented online, and so we believe we can bring something unique to the online found footage world.”
When we asked about the receptiveness of his new found footage web series, Power said “the communities that I’ve reached out to seem to have responded to it well so far [and] now I’m trying to see if there is any way to reach fans of found footage and films”.
Found footage web series where a documentary crew investigates Mani, a man experiencing problems with his memory for several months – during this period, he’s experienced large chunks of lost time that he cannot account for. Hoping to make sense of it all, Mani starts filming himself as often as possible. The videos Mani captures reveal that he’s been slipping into trances and leaving his home. Adding to the mystery, Mani discovers that he’s not the only person experiencing this strange phenomenon.
