Remember your first high school relationship? The innocence? The new experiences? That time you tried to break up with him but he got his head chopped off before you could tell him so he came back as a ghost to kill you so you both could live together forever in the afterlife? Such a simpler time.
Clinger is your classic break-up comedy with a blast of B-movie horror.
FERN PETERSEN, an independently minded 17-year-old, tries to move on with her life after her overly affectionate boyfriend ROBERT KLINGHER dies in an embarrassing accident. But when Robert returns from the dead as a romantically frustrated ghost, he has other plans. As he plots to kill Fern so they can be together forever, Fern will have to fight to stay in the world of the living.
Risks and challenges
In any film, there is always the chance that unseen events, accidents, and catastrophes will stop or delay filming. If such a situation were to occur before production begins, many purchases can be returned or refunded so that losses can be kept to a minimum. If a similar problem occurred during production, we would have to decide whether to continue filming or cease production of the film. It is worth mentioning that over our years of filmmaking experience, we have all experienced extreme and unexpected difficulties in production, but none of us have ever failed to complete a film after starting it.
Failing to secure distribution is the greatest risk factor for independent films. The distributors we know could reject Clinger, and the costs of self-distribution could become prohibitively high. By planning carefully and intelligently in the script development and pre-production phase, we can lower these risks.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
