Jamin Winans made a name for himself as a filmmaker with Ink — an impressive dark fantasy that found a balance between emotionally gripping storytelling and unique visuals. His short films haven’t hurt either. It’s fairly obvious that he’s passionate about fairy tales and genre filmmaking in equal measure, but so far there are almost no details about what his forthcoming movie, The Frame, will be about.
According to an email from Winans, the project has set up a Facebook page in order to make the production interactive. The above image was taken from the page with no comment beyond “Something you might see in The Frame.” Mystery abounds.
I’m currently hunting down a synopsis, but absent that, it’s a matter of climbing aboard the train bicycle of this new work based on Winan’s track record. Considering the true cult status of Ink, that won’t be hard to do for many fans (including this one).
