Showcase.ca gets animated for Lost Girl website

Showcase.ca joins forces with Bedlam Games and Prodigy Pictures to develop the ultimate fan site for the upcoming supernatural series Lost Girl.

In addition to exclusive video content, downloads, episode guide, games and fan forums, the website is anchored by the dynamic Lost Girl: The Interactive Motion Comic.

A first for showcase.ca, the premiere installment of the Lost Girl Interactive Motion Comic launched this week at showcase.ca/lostgirl.

Featuring gripping storylines and impressive animation, Lost Girl: The Interactive Motion Comic is a perfect complement to the television series, extending the Lost Girl world into the digital universe. The site puts the fan in the director’s chair, allowing them to choose their own adventure. The six installments of the comic are a prequel to the series.

Users are introduced to the heroine of Lost Girl, a succubus named Bo, and, in the first installment, are taken through a day-in-her-life where the fan gets to decide the outcomes of Bo’s dark impulses, among other situations featuring secondary characters. With six installments at roughly four minutes in length, this is the first online interactive motion comic created for a Showcase series.

“Bedlam Ink and Prodigy Pictures have done an outstanding job creating a website that complements the creativity and originality of the series,” said Chris Harris, Director, Online Content, Canwest Broadcasting. “The Lost Girl website marks a significant milestone for showcase.ca as we continue to push the boundaries to develop first-rate online extensions of our hit series.”

“We’ve worked tirelessly with Prodigy Pictures and showcase.ca to develop a site that will remain top of mind for Lost Girl fans and have created an addictive interactive component that will have users returning to each installment just as they would tune into Showcase to watch the series,” said Trevor Fencott, CEO, Bedlam Ink. Jay Firestone, Executive Producer, Prodigy Pictures adds, “it’s thrilling to see our initial vision of a Lost Girl motion comic finally being brought to life. The final product is dynamic, engaging and truly exceeds our expectations.”

The website acts to broaden the scope of the Lost Girl underworld, giving users an all-access pass to additional narrative and behind-the-scenes content. In addition to the interactive motion comic, Lost Girl cast biographies and character back-stories are available, and full episodes of the series will be available after broadcast. The site is also home to the online Lost Girl fan community where viewers can discuss favourite moments from the show.

The website was developed to complement the hotly anticipated debut of Lost Girl, produced by Prodigy Pictures. The television series premieres Sunday, September 12 at 9 p.m. ET/PT, exclusively on Showcase.
