Elise Bauman: I think the movie deals with a lot of scenes. And. You know looking back at your history and And taking responsibility for your actions and learning to grow from them. And. And. And how that shapes your future as well a lot of the characters are dealing with that.They’re they’re holding on to their past and that things may have happened to them and then how do you deal with that ? You can choose to retaliate and you can choose to hold on to anger and you can choose to try to seek revenge and feel entitled to shape your future into what you think it was or what you think you deserve it to be because you’ve had this bad thing happen or you can choose to forgive and you can choose to move on and you can choose to You know to lead a beautiful life despite what might have happened to your past.
The biggest thing that I took away from the film and I think it’s so relevant to a lot of things that are happening right now as well.But then of course it’s also still campy and fine.We have now we have a lot of the old characters back and you know the school going on an adventure and a mystery together again. And Carmilla starts to revamp, showing signs of revamping.We really were limited to a single frame (for web series) for almost the entire three seasons except for the last four episodes of the third season. So being able to put the characters in the situations first hand rather than jsut talking about it after the fact was a benefit. In a lot of the of the the Web series was you know Laura talking to her or her vlog audience about what’s happened in the past. But it really does give the characters of time in that situation to process things and to come up with a narrative for it.
This we get to see Laura behind the scenes a little bit we get to see these characters. Dealing with things in the moment which is always messy and not together. And and so that was such a wonderful thing. Also I had way less than monologues to camera which was my favorite thing to do you know to have more time to play with my co-stars. So it was it was a wonderful experience to see the film. And I think it gives the story what it deserves. For Sure. We do see things In the movie.
We really got to kind of dig into the vampire world a little bit more and to sort of like original gothic feel of that as well which was just it was fun to dress up the old clothes. So Yeah luckily I didn’t have to wear a corset when I was wearing the ball gown.
It has been five years since Laura (Bauman) and Carmilla (Negovanlis) vanquished the apocalypse and Carmilla became a bonafide mortal human. They have settled into a cozy apartment in downtown Toronto; Laura continues to hone her journalism skills while Carmilla adjusts to a non-vampire lifestyle. Their domestic bliss is suddenly ruptured when Carmilla begins to show signs of “re-vamping” – from a fondness for bloody treats to accidental biting – while Laura has started having bizarre, ghostly dreams. The couple must now enlist their old friends from Silas University to uncover the unknown supernatural threat and save humanity – including Carmilla’s.
