The more monsters the better, right? I certainly think so and if you share that same mentality you should probably check out the wealth of content being produced over at Crypt TV right now. Their team is striving to create “Marvel for Monsters,” and is already well into establishing that universe on their YouTube channel and on Facebook Watch where you can watch their hit show The Birch.
As someone who can’t get enough horror, it was a pleasure to sit down with the CCO of Crypt TV, Kate Krantz, to get a clearer picture of the brand’s accomplishments thus far and to hear about what they’re looking to achieve down the road. It’s an exciting time to be part of a team that aims to tell scary stories on a variety of platforms that speaks to the Gen Z audience because traditional storytelling forms are changing and expanding significantly. Krantz touched on that during our conversation and also highlighted how their creations have already made a great impact worldwide:
“Content is evolving so much. Like, what is a TV series anymore? How would you define that? We do TV. We have a couple of TV series that we’ll be announcing in the coming year. We’ve done long form expansions of our short form IP. I mean, if you look at The Birch, that was a couple minutes and from that source material where the monster showed her face for less than 10 seconds, people all over the world send us pictures of that character tattooed on their body. It means something to them!”
