Timberwolf Announces Friday the 13th Web Series

Timberwolf Entertainment just revealed plans to this website that are going to produce a Friday the 13th web series based on an old idea for a fan film that was envisioned over a decade ago. This new web series is not affiliated with the news of a new project that was reported on few days ago. Timberwolf was previously responsible for two hugely successful fan films in the past, which lends credibility to this new series.

Friday the 13th: The Storm was the most recent fan film that was produced by Timberwolf Entertainment and was shot in beautiful High Definition. The film was released in July 2009 and was met with high praise from the Friday the 13th community of fans. This new Jason Voorhees endeavor should be pleasing to fans and give them something to look forward to on a weekly basis for a period of time.

The new web series, Friday the 13th: The Obsession, came from an idea for a fan film that Producer Tim Whitfield envisioned in the late 1990's. As the idea for the fan film never came to fruition, the thought was to create a web series on his idea that would be low in cost and time and still produce the story he so desperately wanted to get out to the fans. Below is part of the announcement made at Timberwolf's News Blog.

After producing two features and a web series in California, Tim began to realize Obsession could work as a web series. "It was two web series that gave me the idea actually" Tim explains, "First it was the interest and the success of releasing a old original 2004 feature 'Shadows Fall' as web series, then it was the (overall) ease and success shooting a new web series 'Diary of A Black Widow' with Y-Not Productions that made me realize it could be done for a reasonable budget." Tim knew they could not do a feature,  because of the time and upfront money such a project requires with no way to earn it back since it was a fan film. But as a web series it could be done 15 or so minutes at a time, for little cost without the cast and crew missing work and paid projects.
