I'll be honest, I thoroughly enjoyed the quirkiness of Cataclysmo, so I'm a bit wary as to the coming darkness. I will watch it with care and respect and an open mind. But I'll be honest... as exciting and interesting and dramatic as this new show seems to look I fear it will not live up to Cataclysmo standards in my mind.
"The Black Dawn" will certainly have a darker, more dramatic edge to it. I'm sure that will excite some long-time viewers, who may have preferred the drama of "Project X" to the quirkiness of "Cataclysmo," but I sympathize with all of you who will miss the zaniness and craziness.
While Kevin and Anthony are taking a much needed break, rest assured that the team behind "The Black Dawn" is first-rate. The series is directed by William Hellmuth, who guest directed several episodes of "Cataclysmo," and co-written by Johnny Zanzibar himself, Brian Walton (who also wrote our fun mini-serial "Trunk"). New faces to our team include co-creator and lead writer Abraham Sherman and cinematographer Jon Lavey. Not to mention Curtis Schweitzer is back, composing new music for us.
Needless to say, I think all of you WebSerials fans are going to enjoy this exciting new show! Tell your friends, "The Black Dawn" begins January 31, 2009!
