All the pieces are falling into place for Rue Morgue Cinema’s first feature film. The Last Will and Testament of Rosalind Leigh, written and directed by RM founder Rodrigo Gudiño, has found its Visual Effects Supervisor in the form of Anthony Scott Burns, former Senior Designer at MTV Canada. Burns turned plenty of heads earlier this year with his Tron: Destiny fan film, which you can watch below.
“I had so many ideas for what we could do with the FX as soon as I read Rodrigo’s script, that I just had to be a part of this film,” says Burns, who is also the mind behind the Toronto-based electronic act Pilotpriest. He is slated to direct his first feature film later this year.
The Last Will and Testament of Rosalind Leigh tells the story of an antiques collector who inherits a house from his estranged mother only to discover that she had been living in a shrine devoted to a mysterious cult of angels. Soon, he comes to suspect that his mother’s oppressive spirit still lingers within her home and is using items in the house – especially statues of angels – to contact him with an urgent message. The film will be produced by Marco Pecota (Curious Stories, Crooked Symbols) for Rue Morgue Cinema.
