EXOPOLIS BRINGS 'THE BLACK DAHLIA' TO THE WEB

The site (www.theblackdahliamovie.net) allows visitors to click on various locations from the film on a stylized map. The different locations each bring up short video clips from the film.

The "LA Then and Now" feature compares period and contemporary photographs to show how much - and how little - the City of Angels has changed over the years.

Users visiting "The Real Story" section are clued into the actual events surrounding Elizabeth Short's murder, with excerpts from FBI case files and a timeline of the victim's tragically brief life.

"Dark LA" recreates a newsreel from the late 1940's, and explores the dark side of LA's history - the infamous bombings, riots and murders - culminating in the Black Dahlia case.

The site went live on August 28th.

Darwin Tomlinson served as creative director, Tosh Kodama was creative lead and David Estis was lead developer.

Brian Gossett, Moe Dean and Juliet Park all provided design. Ken Macy handled animation. Kim Zaninovich served as executive producer and Ashley Cook was producer on the project.
