Raising money to shoot the feature full length project "Thicker Than Water"
Last year we filmed a hilarious story that is one part Hope & Crosby road trip movie, one part vampire love story gore-fest. It was a great experience with a lot of promise. The film was shot on a Canon XH-A1 over the course of two years in the great Pacific Northwest, as a first attempt at movie making with a bunch of friends. After viewing the film and allowing others to see it we realized this thing has got major commercial appeal. Problem is we have ran out of funding, We spent over seven thousand making this film with no want of return, but now we would like to see this done on a bigger scale for market release.
What we need now is the help of people like yourself, to get us to that next step. We have set down over the last six months and worked out an extremely fixed and tight budget.It will be shot on a Red so it absolutely has the potential of theatrical release. We are looking to raise ninety five thousand dollars for the feature length film. Some of the items used will be of course for equipment rentals, actors and transportation, If you donate you will be able to see the entire breakdown of the budget, we want to keep our supporters completely in the loop.
The crew we have assembled is great, several key players are active in the film industry with several years under their belts and several great films to their names. Now with the right equipment and a good chunk of change to get the right actors and sets, we know this can be a smash. Our ultimate goal is to take the film to market festivals to get it distributed in the US and Asian Market with the hopes of seeing it released in Europe as well.We are not opposed to direct to video release but would like to see it on the big screen. And that is where you all come in. Every little dollar helps.
We are setting this up for 50 days, with the plan to begin shooting mid July wrapping Mid September. We look to be in full swing and edited up in time for the festival season 2013.
So you want to know a little bit about the story? Well here it is:
Frank is a vampire who just doesn't seem to know how to let go of his humanity. Simply put, he is a hopeless romantic. For 400 years he has had his heart crushed time and time again, but hey, you cant give up on love the first couple of hundred years. His last heartache has left him devastated. That's where Vasillie comes in. Fellow vampire and Franks best friend, he sets out to help Frank get over his woes by taking him on a cross country kill fest. There is only one problem, Vasillie is just as big of a screw up as Frank. Between being wanted for the murder, their car breaking down in the middle of nowhere and being lost in Utah, how could things get worse. Enter Miriam, the one thing that could change Franks life forever. Trust us this isn't your run of the mill vampire story.
We promise to bring cool back to the vampire, no one sparkles in our movie unless they are on fire.
