‘Walkers’ promises to spread terror on Orange TV
In August 2019, five friends, two girls and three boys, disappear while doing the Camino de Santiago. His trail was lost in the Irati Forest, very close to the French border. Two weeks later, the police find their mobile phones buried in the bush, along with their backpacks and various personal items. Thanks to the videos that the boys recorded with their devices, 40 hours of nightmare can be reconstructed.
Created and written by José Antonio Pérez Ledo (‘Órbita Laika’, ‘Apolo Station’) and directed by Koldo Serra (‘La casa de papel’, ‘El Ministerio del tiempo’), ‘Caminantes’ is committed to horror genre with a suspense plot whose main narrative resource is the « found footage » technique where the captures made with the protagonists’ mobiles.
The story of the five disappeared has been shot in 4K quality with latest generation smartphones, with parameters configured manually through an application to use them as if they were professional cameras. Also, applications and filters have been used, very common among the youngest, who here are also placed at the service of history, transforming their friendly tone into a terrifying element.
