EXOPOLIS BRINGS 'THE BLACK DAHLIA' TO THE WEB
|September 5, 2006
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.
