About this project

Thank You so much for visiting our Kickstarter page! We appreciate you watching our promo video! 

THE STORY

Bedtime Stories centers around young Mia, who's adjusting to her Mom remarrying. An evil presence is accidentally brought into the house in this psychological thriller that borders against paranormal and the supernatural. 

This short is about more than just a demonic haunting, it's about the rough relationship between Mia and her new step-dad, Steve. As the story goes on, Mia is mentally tortured by the evil presence that surrounds her, every night gets worse and worse for her until the evil-being gets what it wants. 

I fell in love with horror when I was a kid, the first movie I ever remember watching was Jaws. Since then,  I have that lingering thought in the back of my head of that movie every time I'm in water. A good horror movie isn't one that makes you jump with no build up or a gorror that isn't scary at all. A good horror flick is one that leaves you a little nervous to be home alone with the lights off when you get home, and that's what we are trying to make. We're not going to use a man with a knife or a ghost that jumps out with loud noises, we want to use your imagination against you, in this creepy story. 

WHY WE NEED YOU

Making this short exactly how we want isn't cheap. We have props, wardrobe, sound, SFX, VFX, transportation, and food to cover. We are putting everything we have in this project but we are coming up a little short. Pledging money means that you become part of the team and making this project hit the screen. We've offered some pretty great pledge rewards for you to enjoy and If we raise enough that means we can give a little something to the cast and crew who are devoting their time and sweat into this short.  Our goal budget of $3,500 is the bare minimum to get this film made, if we reach more, we can make this even better! We can't thank you enough for helping to get this project made, we can't do it with out your help. So, seriously, thank you. 

Risks and challenges

With creating any projects brings challenges in front of them. The crew we have surrounding this project are all as dedicated to this as the creators. The challenges we'll face will be over come through the passions we have in creating a project thats not just for the creators its for everyone who's involved. We need to get this done in a timely matter so we can send this off to as many film festivals as we can!
