About the project “Twighburg” and the film “The corset”:
The project and the web series “Twighburg” started on the base of the short-length movie “The corset” (directed by O. Twighlight, 2016, 30 min long). It became one of the famous and successful crowdfunding projects in the field of independent cinema as well as the first Russian steampunk project. “The Corset” gave birth to the universe called Twighburg where the film events take place. Soon the film took part in a series of prestigious international film festivals and screenings and then it grew to an interactive and crossmedia project. The audience and the fans started to make up new characters and take part in the filming process.
