We're raising funds to open our comedy film, “Halloween Party”, for one week in September, in Los Angeles for academy consideration.
The film is done! You’re not putting a penny of your money into that endeavor. The real challenge is getting it out for academy consideration and even to be seen by the masses.
Our first year goal is to meet the requirements of the academy by opening the film in Los Angeles for one week and advertising it to the public. If we raise more money than what is required to obtain that goal, then we will open in cities across America, voted on by our KICKSTARTER BACKERS. The cost for this venture is $20,000. For every additional $25,000--we can add another city!
Check out our trailer here:
You're watching some very funny comedic actors, but equally important, you're drawn into the party with some of the best original music created from primarily Nashville based artists!
The music in the film is a huge part of this experience, and the area we believe could be nominated for an Oscar. Remember the indie film, "Once?" It was the story of a musician who wanted to buy his girlfriend a piano. Not much more than that, however, it was filled with original music and it ended up winning "Best Original Song" and taking home the statue.
Our film has 29 original songs, with 6 written specifically for the movie. Those six are the potential award winning tunes. The soundtrack feels like a combination of George Thorogood, ZZ Top, Lady Gaga, Janis Joplin, Adele, and Warren Zevon. Like the soundtrack says, “If you can’t dance to this, you’re dead!"
We think you're going to be so impressed with the songs written by CJ Watson, Donna Britton, Bryan Steele, Mark Conklin, Bruce Michael Miller, David Norris, and Al DeTroliio, that you'll HEAR why you want to be involved!
We believe in this project and its potential so much, we have already produced the original motion picture soundtrack, volume 1. Unlike most movie soundtracks that don’t have songs from the movie, ours is filled with nothing but great original music from the film! It is currently available on CD Baby, iTunes, Amazon, and more. Two of our artists, CJ Watson and Donna Britton, are on a radio tour promoting it right now!
This is your chance to help a little indie film find some notoriety it deserves. Awards should not only be for big studios who can plaster their movies across the country and advertise to the hilt.
That's where YOU come in! All of you will become our DISTRIBUTOR of this film by funding our campaign. It will get out there, be advertised, reviewed, and move forward to the next stage of the film...becoming a potential award winning cult classic!
For every Publicist, Groupie, Filmmaker, and Distributor backer, your photo will be used in a collage logo for the film's unique "Distribution" company. It will show before every premiere indefinitely. You, or the person of your choice, will become a part of the film forever!
Visit our website, www.HalloweenPartyMovie.com, and learn more about the making of the project, the creative team and actors, the charities we've chosen to sponsor with our soundtrack sales, and special pre-release screenings in Long Beach and Nashville! Find out more about us and see how you, too, can become part of a very experimental, collaborative effort. We hope to be considered for awards and seen across America soon, thanks to you!
We'll be posting a good portion of each of our songs daily on KickStarter for our fans to enjoy. We can't let the whole song out there in order to protect our artists, but if you like what you hear, you can always buy it at:
Stay tuned for more fun from "Halloween Party"! We'll be posting the following:
1. Music (a partial song every day, including the score)
3. Photos from the film
4. Interviews with cast, creators and musicians in the film
5. Update you on how the project is progressing
HOW TO VOTE
Every one of our Kickstarter backers will get the opportunity to vote on which original song written for the movie will be the one we promote for an Oscar.
The way we will do that is by posting a video of the six songs, on the last day of the campaign. You will have already heard each song previously in the 29 days. This RECAP will let you hear all the songs again and make it clear which ones are available to vote for.
Simply send me a message with your "Song" vote via our Kickstarter page, and I will tally them up and announce the winner...right here at Kickstarter! The message area is right below the title of our project at the top of the page.
We will only follow through on promoting the "Winning" song, IF we meet our Kickstarter goal.
Thanks for stopping by and checking us out!
