As of this writing, there are less than 44 hours between us and the deadline. We've come so very, very close, and we simply could not have gotten nearly this far without the humbling generosity of so many of you. Saying thanks doesn’t even begin to cover it, but hopefully a thank you by way of making a helluva movie will. And we think we can do just that.
We don’t have any new rewards to unveil today, but we do have a few cast and crew updates to announce. First, on the casting front, it’s our pleasure to announce that Byron Brown has joined the film. Those who follow the Old Murder House Theatre may recognize Byron from their stage productions, while Fantastic Fest-ers may recognize him from this year’s The Quiet Girl’s Guide to Violence. He’s a very talented, naturally funny man, and he’s perfect for his role.
We’re also thrilled to announce that we will once again be working with some of our favorite collaborators. Our Cinematographer is Gray Haddock, who has worked on every Arcanum Pictures project so far, great and small, and is one of our best secret weapons. You can check out a sample of his wide-ranging work at his official site. And on the editing front, we’ll be relying on the indispensable Luke Mullen and Shane Gibson (both of My Sucky Teen Romance) to turn our Halloween comedy dreams into an actual movie. No pressure, guys.
This will probably be our last update on the Kickstarter before it ends at 10am on Sunday, October 14th. We can’t thank everyone enough for pledging, following along, and helping spread the word. The support we’ve gotten, especially the closer we get to the finish line, has been incredibly invigorating. We’re full steam now, and it will probably get down to a photo finish, but we can do this.
