A Documentary on The Blair Witch Project


A while back, a friend asked me to rework an old documentary he and some of his buds made back when The Blair Witch was released in theaters. They found the house -- which was somewhere in Howard County, Maryland -- as well as other locations in the movie such as the Burkettsville cemetery. They shot a lot of footage, even an interview with the Mayor of Burkettsville. The cinematographer put something together and it wasn't bad, but with the special 15th anniversary blue ray release of the movie planned, my friend wanted to see if we could make something the producers would want to include as an extra.

What you see above is the result. It came out pretty well, I think. We even showed it to Eduardo Sanchez, the director of the movie. He liked it and showed it to the powers that be, but it ultimately it wasn't included. At least it lives on Youtube.

Have a look, and "like" it if you like it.
