Denver, CO – Locally operating motion picture production company, Three River Filmworks is underway on production of the first season of The Unearthly, a web series based loosely upon stories of Pulp Horror writer, Howard Philips Lovecraft, in a contemporary interpretation of Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos.
The Unearthly Web Series, for the planned first season, will focus on Randy Carter, a dynamic 20-something. When Randy’s best friend, Chuck Ward disappears under mysterious circumstances, Randy assembles his remaining friends to search for Chuck. The search uncovers a Necromantic Cult, dedicated to the return of Yog-Sothoth, an Outer God, or an extraterrestrial of immense power. Yog-Sothoth co-exists within time and space, yet is locked away from our universe. The Chorazos Cult, dedicated to Yog-Sothoth seeks to free this entity. Randy and his friends go up against the Chorazos Cult and discover more than they were expecting.
The pilot, “Missing”, was successfully crowd funded through Kickstarter on March 28, 2013.
Production on Episode #2, “Cultists” , is underway on a 7 day production schedule, which will complete in February 2014. The projected release is early March 2014.

About Mark Fukae:
Mark Fukae hails from Flushing, Queens, New York, the forerunner of Hollywood. The son of Japanese and German parents, he found escape from the crushing sameness of mid-70′s America through the films of Stanley Kubrick and Terry Gilliam. Inspired to become a rule-breaking filmmaker, he dedicated himself to broadening his knowledge and skills in the unrelated fields of Political Science and Macroeconomics so that he might break them more fully and artistically. To this end, he earned a Bachelor’s degree in International Relations from SUNY New Paltz, and continued his education in film by attending Brooks Institute of Photography with a focus on Cinematography. He continued his education in Los Angeles, where he attended Columbia College of Film and Television to develop his directing skills where he made stylish and inscrutable films. After the Northridge quake in 1994, he moved to Colorado to form his own production company, Three River Filmworks in 1996. He developed his skills as an editor and created many adverts, television programs, short films, music videos and feature films. In 2002, he edited COLOUR BLIND, which won a Sacramento Gaffers award. 2006 his editing work also won the best short film at the Global Art Film Festival for SKELETAL DREAMS. He turned his attention to newer technology in HDSLRs in 2009 and spent the continuing years shooting, directing and writing new and technically innovative projects. Mark is 45 and lives in Denver.
