Elmwood Productions is a film production group from Plainville, Connecticut that specializes in puppetry.
In the time leading up to HEAD, we have created series (Mr. Universe & Don, Steve the Vampire, G@mrz, Animal Behavior) and shorts (The Walking Path, Mommy, Where Does Candy Come From?, The First Kiss). We even produced a 15 minute live show that opened for The Wham City Comedy Tour this past February.
HEAD will be Elmwood’s second feature film; in 2008, we made Josh and Todd: The Story of A Man and His Puppet.
HEAD is a throwback to the 70's and 80's Grindhouse B-horror film. What could be better than a weekend camping retreat with your friends? What could be worse than finding out the woods where you’re setting up camp was the site of a brutal mass murder from the decade before? Four young men and women are about to find out more than they ever bargained for in HEAD. Instead of playing it with human actors, we are shooting with puppets (because we’re Elmwood). However, we are using puppets outside of the conventional “puppet” world. They are not “puppets” in this film – they are people. When is the last time you saw a puppet play it straight? Principal photography is underway, and we hope to have the film ready by the end of the year.
The money going towards this project will go towards our any extra production costs (paying ourselves back for equipment purchased), post production costs, marketing, and distribution for HEAD. Also, we will take the remaining money to purchase more supplies and new equipment to keep Elmwood Productions going. Video and filmmaking technology is ever evolving, getting even better every day, and we have been self-financing our projects for over a decade.
We’re not asking for much, just something to keep us going through our next few productions. The more you donate, the more we can do! And the more we can do, the happier we all will be! Because we will be doing what we love! And we want our work to be the best possible it can be! AND IT’S ALL FOR YOU, KICKSTARTER DONORS!
And for reading all the way to the end, here's a little treat to get you in the mood for HEAD!!!
Risks and challenges
Our biggest risk for the production of "HEAD" is weather! 95 Percent of the film is outdoors, since our heroes, villains, and victims are all camping! The only delays we can imaging popping up are weather related… But we already have a plan! We have dates set up now for rain dates, and this movie will be rolling along as smoothly as Mother Nature lets us!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
