About this project
What happens when a deranged young man living in a hipster-infested LA neighborhood is pushed too far? Spoiler/title alert: HIPSTER HOLOCAUST! Like an 80’s slasher flick starring the population of the Coachella parking lot, or an unholy marriage of 500 DAYS OF SUMMER and FALLING DOWN, HH is going to be a fake trailer for the grindhouse movie you only wish existed. Prepare for a two-and-a-half minute blast of gore, laughs, and wish-fulfillment.
This summer... the scene is dead.
WHO WE ARE
It’s simple: we are four young and passionate filmmakers trying to make a gruesome and hilarious short film that pays homage to the grindhouse movies of yesteryear while adding in a dose of 21st-century decadence (in short: hipsters gonna die in our movie, y’all!).
Each of us has worked on various film and web projects in and out of Hollywood, whether it’s writing, directing or producing.
We plan to take the film out to festivals once it's completed and eventually put it on the web so that everyone can enjoy it.
Feel free to stroke our egos by reading more about us in our bios! (Please, we need the attention).
WHAT WE'RE GONNA' DO WITH YOUR MONEY
We’re going to make this thing look good.
We’re planning to shoot on high-quality HD, but more importantly, we want to hire a crew of extremely talented art directors, production designers and practical/visual FX artists who we know can deliver top-notch work.
We’ve been through film school, we’ve had to scrap to make movies, and we want to do justice to this insanely outrageous and bloody affair of a flick. So we crunched the numbers and came up with a dollar amount we think will give us enough room to make the HIPSTER HOLOCAUST that you deserve to see.
But in order to do that we need money for film stuff like lighting kits (so you can see the actors!) and gore effects (so you can see those actors get slaughtered in new and disgustingly innovative ways! Our favorite of which involves a fixie bike chain)
WHAT YOU GET
You mean besides the opportunity to help create an awesome independent short film that you can tell all your friends you were a part of?
Well, if that’s not enough, we’ve got everything from swag (hand-drawn "hipsterized" portraits of you!) to DVD copies of the film (neat!) to a chance to actually be KILLED in the movie (OMG YOU GUYS!!).
Check out our rewards section to see the full list of sweet stuff you'll receive for your generosity.
HOW YOU'LL FEEL IF YOU DONATE
Like a million rainbows woke you up on a bed of pure sunshine and kitten kisses but with more blood.
