Co-director Leigh Thorne sent us a line to announce that the filming of his next fan short Silent Hill: Path of Guilt it’s “in the can” after seven months. The team’s next goal? To prepare the film for Silent Hill 220th anniversary in September.
Leigh and company hope to have the film cut at that point to present the short film as a “special treat” to fans who have been patiently waiting (and more) for Konami to finally revisit the series after PT back in 2015.
“We are working closely together to provide the best cut for this short film,” says Leigh. “After reviewing all the different takes etc, we think we have a product in the works that would be a big contender at future ‘Fan Film Festivals,’ so check out this space.”
The film will premiere on YouTube on Dax79 Channel, with co-directors Leigh Thorne and Ruben Abreu to answer any questions from fans. A release date has not been officially announced, but again, Thorne is targeting September.
Adapted from parts of a full script called Silent Hill: Waking Hours, Blame trail sees James Sunderland (played by Matt perkins) recovering an old set of therapy sessions between him and Dr. Pinzón. James then heads to a light line hotspot where a breach has potentially been made between our realm and the realm of Silent Hill to take care of some “unfinished business.”
