Count the Clock launches a new indiegogo campaign for THE BALL
The Ball is the next installment in Count the Clock’s “Middleton High” series – an internet series with content on YouTube, Tumblr, Instagram, and more (read our reviews of The Cheerleader Trials and I Love Lucy) – about the surreal goings-on at a fictional high school, where strange things constantly seem to happen.
In The Ball, Count the Clock is going to explore Middleton’s past through the eyes of one of its recurring character’s Victorian ancestor. The background will be in a high Victoriana style, complete with a baroque, flowery room design and elegant costumery. The dialogue of this short will be read in old-fashioned iambic pentameter with a pronounced rhyme scheme in homage to classical drama. In addition to the Victorian look, The Ball will also be merging together aesthetics ranging from pop-punk to gothic, to create a unique and distinct vision.
Additionally, director Zach Lorkiewicz is inspired by filmmakers like Dario Argento and Mario Bava, who merge together unusual lighting patterns and set designs to create a surreal but familiar aesthetic.
