A faithful and cinematic telling of H.P Lovecraft's short story, Pickman's Model.
OUR REWARDS CATEGORIES HAVE BEEN UPDATED!!! CHECK EM OUT!
Hello from Of Doom! Productions! We're the silly people up in that video asking for your help. As you can see in the video, we can put together a decent production. That's with absolutely no money, just our resources and our time. Now that we've got a solid script for Pickman's Model, we wanna put out something a little special and we need your help. What will we do with this money? Well, first of all, we're aiming for a decent camera so we can capture all of the fantastic-ness that is H.P. Lovecraft's world and the handcrafted paintings by our amazing artist, Khoury Humphries (http://www.facebook.com/khoury.multimedia) who creates things. Things like this:
To capture images like the piece of concept art above we'll need about 1, 500 of our budget to go to renting said camera with the right lenses and attachments. Now, we definitely know how to stretch a budget (we do it every day!) so another 1,000 will go towards make-up, lighting, costumes and food so we can feed those starving actors that will be donating their time and talent to make our script come to life. The next 1,000 will go towards props and sets, painting materials for the hand-painted paintings that will be shown during the second half of the film, and sound. The final 500 will go towards post-production, reward fulfillment, and small miscellaneous expenses such as transportation. Also building a gnarly well, like this one:
Now, all of the talent minus sound and animation will be donating their time and talent to our production so we know we can definitely deliver. Using a combination of in camera effects, lighting, and miniatures, we believe we can achieve something many have tried and very few have succeeded in: a faithful and GOOD adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft's stories. By going directly to the fans and others out there looking for this elusive creature, we're cutting out the middle man. The people who say "no, that won't work" that seem to ruin previous attempts to re-create Lovecraft's fantastic and horrifying universe are not welcome here! So keep in mind, the more we make over our budget, the better our production will look and feel. If we can hit 10,000 we'll even offer you something VERY special so stay tuned and help us reach our goal!
Also: we love cake. No, we really really do.
