About

t for the sake of cinema.  We've all spent many, MANY 15 to 18 hour days on films that WEREN'T ours.  Went without meals.  Got lost in abandoned amusement parks after hour 16, curled into the fetal position, fought off wildlife, and then got back up, found the (since moved) location, and went back to work.  We've gone temporarily blind but powered through (that's actually not recommended). Cannibalized weaker members of the production to both feed ourselves, but more importantly... Make sure it's a better product.  We're prepared to do so again, if that's what it takes.  We're real good at getting a lot out of a little, and you won't be able to tell the difference.  "Did The Cage and The Avengers have the same budget, Damian?"  "Hmm... They might have, sport."

Quite a lineup. Are you bastardizing the Keene book? That's a thing you people do.

No, no, we're not "you people". That's some other group. I've been a fan of Brian Keene's for a long, long time. Long before I met him or started harassing him. Since I picked The Conqueror Worms off the shelf at Barnes & Noble and said "whoa mama!" (I did say that, if the girl in the Westbury B&N, who was shelving books at the time still works there, ask her. She thought we were having a "moment".).  We're trying to make a great movie, first and foremost. Mind bogglingly, it would appear that there are people out there who DO aim to make a bad film. Or people that will half-ass it, that it will be "good enough." That's not happening here. I have too much respect for the genre (genres, yeah?), and really want to drop a title in there that makes people want to siphon Halloween costumes out of.  Imagine going as... "The Cage" next Halloween?  Either way, I say do it.  We have oodles of respect for Brian's work, as fans, and as filmmakers.  We've worked very closely with him on expanding this sucker a bit to get it to a place where the audience sits down, thinks they know what's going on (You smarties!) and it will just unravel on them. Justice to the Keene work! Keene fans will not be disappointed. I'm putting it all on the line there. I'm a fan. It's a team of fans. And we're not disappointed. That makes sense, tell me it doesn't.

Why do we need your money?

Fine question. Glad we asked it. We have the best equipment out there and the people to operate it and point things in the right direction. People that can hit their marks! But, since we're so boldly choosing to do things our way, with the people we want, we also needed to find a way to pay them the piddling amount they'll get, feed them (or else they'll die and cause delays, and then we'll need more money), secure the location, and get our F/X team the materials they need to make wonderful practical goodness.

Every cent raised from a successful campaign will be seen on screen. Even if a small amount of it is crumbs from lunch on Sam Ingraffia's mustache. If we don't raise the money here, the movie isn't happening. Don't be sad, buck up ($1 up?). This isn't "tack on" money. It's what we need to get this thing done.


WILDFIRES clip

Here's a teaser/clip from WILDFIRES, a Sci-Fi/Thriller that tells the tale of Ben, a man chosen to travel back in time to save mankind from a plague.  Even if it means wiping out 90% of the population.

Featuring 6 members of The Cage team:

  • Directed by Jon D. Wagner
  • Starring Damian Maffei, Sam Ingraffia, Brian James Fitzpatrick
  • Cinematography by Chad Courtney
  • Edited by Brody Gusar

Did you say creatures?

Shh... Come on, now.  We did, we did say creatures.  It's something that we didn't want to go into detail with, because it's sort of a ::spoiler::, and the internet people hate spoilers.  They're always coming home from work and logging on to Facebook to see what LOL thing their friend Rudolpho said about global warming, and instead they see what happened on Breaking Bad.  So, much of us wants to keep all the juicy secrets of The Cage hidden until you're plopped in a seat watching.  But other parts think that if we're asking for your money, you should see what's going on, and where it's going.  So without further adieu, here's a peek-a-boo at sketches by artist Noeland Collins for a look at some potential creature action in The Cage.

Behold... The Cephalite!  A conduit of the Dark Lord!  And if you'll have a look to the right, somewhere in there is an available Cephalite reward.  Beat that with a stick!  (Seriously, get it and you can beat it with a stick.)
Behold... The Cephalite! A conduit of the Dark Lord! And if you'll have a look to the right, somewhere in there is an available Cephalite reward. Beat that with a stick! (Seriously, get it and you can beat it with a stick.)
Behold... Well, I'm not going to tell you what that is.  If you really want to know, contact me and I'll tell  you.  Just know that it's obviously something you're going to ask to not touch you.
Behold... Well, I'm not going to tell you what that is. If you really want to know, contact me and I'll tell you. Just know that it's obviously something you're going to ask to not touch you.

We would like to reward ourselves.

Sure, and you should.  Like I always say, Every day, once a day, give yourself a present. Don’t plan it, don’t wait for it, just let it happen. It could be a new shirt at the men's store, a catnap in your office chair or two cups of good hot black coffee.  Or a The Cage Kickstarter campaign reward.

The Cage's thrilling T-shirt

We worked tirelessly (If we told you how long it took to input these rewards and try to make sense of them, you'd first feel bad... And then leave the page because it would be like... "It took them this long to PUT IN REWARDS?") to offer up the best rewards we could, with the most realistic values we could.  I'm not looking to anyone for a ride.  I worked closely with Brian Keene on the rewards he was offering up, and when he exclaimed "I've given you all I can, Captain", I said "First of all, don't call me Captain again, it's weird, and second... Fork em over writer guy!"  Own the film, own a part of the film, be a part of the film, meet with Brian, or us, or us and Brian in private settings.  I think they're exceptionally badass, and that was the intention.  To help us get this thing done, and have a reward... Actually be a reward.  Goodies for all ranges, a chance to for everyone to be a part of something special.  The Cage (in case you were wondering...). 


Oh yeah?  Hmm... When are you going to film this?

Hi, and thanks for the enthusiasm.  Great question.  We will begin Pre-production (although we're doing adorable things along the way to ensure good times) this January, and begin filming February of 2014 in Los Angeles, California.  Where they make a lot of movies.


I would like to know more about this... Whole thing.

Super, that's our hope.  Please visit:

Is my pledge amount publicly displayed?

No, no one will know your pledge, and never let an amount stop you from donating (Did you like that?).  Seriously, every little bit will count on this sucker, and we tried to make the $1 rewards as much fun as we could to encourage people who can only swing that.

What if I don’t want the incentive, I just want to support?

You want to give us money, but you don't want to get stuff back?  What are you playing at?  Bucking for some kind of Saint action?  Yes please, that's all cool.  You can certainly do that.  We understand some people may not want to be bogged down with stuff, and that there are minimalists out there who have apartments with only but a chair, TV, and Brian Keene books.

Can you exceed your goal?

Ah, now you're talking about the daydream a campaign team has when they're sitting there putting these things together.  Setting what they think is an attainable goal... And blowing by it.  Watching the $$$ counter go past the target and everyone jumping up and hugging and high fiving like the fake end of every disaster film until something else goes wrong. 
Here's the thing with that: The goal set is the minimum we can do this glorious thing for, but you may not have heard this before... But every donation counts.  Exceeding the goal here is likely never going to get to the point where it's just greedy.  Party money.  There are parts that have not yet been cast.  We've already scheduled in times where we were going to pretend like the food was stolen.  One week where the paycheck truck (paycheck truck?) was under siege by a band of thieves.  Necessary things in place to pull this off.  Every buck past the goal moves us away from that territory.

Can I increase my pledge once it’s been made?

Oh yes!  If you donated, and then had a conversation with me and thought "I like this project.", or "I like this dude." or "I wish this guy would shut his yap.", then by all means upgrade.  And we can combine your rewards for you with the upgrade.  Just contact me and let me know what you'd like to add on.  It's all good, and you can trust me ::shiny tooth smile::

Can I give a reward as a gift?

Yer a sweet kid.  Yes,  yes you can.  When you go to claim your reward, simply tell us where it's headed.  We'll take care of the rest.  I can even wrap it in old newspaper with unidentifiable stains and a bow.  If ya like!

What happens if the money isn’t raised in time?

I had to walk away from the screen there. I'm okay now. If we don't raise the funds set, then no one is charged for the money they attempted to donate, people go back to what they were doing. Maybe a pat on the back from friends, a "You did your best!" from some, a "Dude, that suckssss" from this one guy I know. And then I head off into the mountains never to be heard from again.


If you can't find it within yourself to do it for us... Do it for this guy.

He's never wronged you.

    THE CONDUIT - Own a piece of history with THE CAGE's very own Cephalite's. Little alien beasts used for... Things in the movie. These creatures have been designed by Emmy nominated F/X wizard Jeremy Selenfriend and Monster in My Closet F/X. Perfect for those living in an apartment whose landlord won't let them have pets. Roughly the size of a Chihuahua, or a Chihuahua sized cat. Attach wheels to them and take them for a walk around the block. Sure to grab the attention and interest of all your neighbors! Score digits from someone you've been trying to get to notice you. The possibilities are endless, and that's what we're here for. We're here for you. See the Noeland Collins Cephalite sketch to the left for a look at those suckers.
    With this we'll also throw in a set visit for yourself and 2 tickets to the Los Angeles premiere of THE CAGE (Filmed in Los Angeles, *Travel and Lodging not included for either), a Thank You in our end credits, as well as a signed script by the cast, and a DVD or Blu-ray (Please specify which you prefer).
    Also includes THE DOLLAR STORE and VALUED CUSTOMER rewards. Much worship.
