The Bannen Way
The creator and star of one of my fav-o-rite web series ever has launched a Kickstarter campaign for his latest creative effort. The Bannen Way's Mark Gantt's next project, The Night Visitor, is sci-fi-meets-horror-meets-thriller.
Starring Hollywood Heights' Brianne Davis (also an executive producer), Tara Buck (True Blood) and Vedette Lim (True Blood, Hollywood Heights), The Nigfht Visitor is already in post production. Jennifer Blanc-Biehn (Dark Angel) directed a script from The Marcus Brothers.
The found footage-style digital feature is hoping to raise $12,500. Check out the trailer and additional video content for The Night Visitor after the jump!
Crackle.com's juggernaut web drama The Bannen Way is continuing to dominate the Internet content awards circuit.

Kudos to Zach Arnold, who took home an award at yesterday's Streamys Craft Awards for Best Editing in a Web Series.

Okay, it is so not fair to compare The Bannen Way to any of the other web series we cover, considering the sleek, sexy serial got a $1 million investment from Sony, but a hella hot story doesn't cost much, and The Bannen Way definitely has one! Series creators Jesse Warren and Mark Gantt (who also stars as Neal Bannen, the coolest thief since Danny Ocean) definitely have a winner on their hands with this soap for guys about a thief who finds himself between the Mob and a hard place. General Hospital sex bomb Vanessa Marcil as the cunning Madison, certainly doesn't hurt the situation!
