Your Appraisal & Necessary Evils

£4,051

91

Hi, I’m Nicholas Vince and 30 years ago, I played the Chatterer in Clive Barker’s Hellraiser, it’s sequel Hellbound and Kinski (Moon faced guy) in Barker’s Nightbreed.

Recently, I’ve acted in indie-horror movies, written plays for the London Horror Festival, and become its patron; published two collections of my short horror stories, and written and directed the short film, The Night Whispered. I host the popular YouTube show, Chattering with Nicholas Vince - where I interview indie film makers, authors and artists. Last year, I won the London Horror Society Award for Outstanding Contribution to UK Independent Horror.

I need your help to shoot 2 short films I’ve written, and will direct. I'm working with the indie production company Celtic Badger Media. We plan to film in Limerick, Ireland at the beginning of June, using predominantly practical FX.

Your Appraisal is a nasty tale of a boss who, during their appraisal meeting tortures his employee—with office stationery. In Necessary Evils, a soldier discovers the army really does own him body and soul.

Necessary Evils will be included in the anthology feature film, For We Are Many, produced by Hex Media and scheduled for release in Spring 2018.

I’ll submit Your Appraisal to Horror Channel FrightFest and other international horror festivals.

ALL STRETCH GOALS ARE NOW COMPLETE!

  • £3,000 - Director’s commentary on The Night Whispered and 10 minute documentary. I’ll record a commentary for the film, plus create a documentary on what I learned during the making of my first short film.
  • £3,250 - Director’s commentary on Your Appraisal and Necessary Evils PLUS Postcards of the posters for Your Appraisal and Necessary Evils for those on physical rewards.
  • £3,500 - Access to streaming version of Retribution directed by Paddy Murphy, starring myself, 3 months before it’s released to YouTube PLUS A4 posters of Your Appraisal and Necessary Evils for those on physical rewards.

Rewards received depend whether or not you’ve chosen a digital or physical product to be delivered, from the £5 level upwards. 

E.g. if you’ve chosen anything from £5 and up which includes the supply of a download or a link to a film you’ll also receive the rewards shown above. For physical products, please note the A4 posters may need to be folded so as not to increase postage charges - though we’ll fit into small cardboard tubes where possible.

 Ben Lomax knew the appraisal meeting with his boss would be tough. He didn’t expect it to be torture. He slowly, and painfully, learns this isn’t about his performance at work.

 Your Appraisal is inspired by the many years I spent working in an office. I hated appraisals—both giving and receiving. It’s also inspired by the dull afternoon I spent speculating what injuries I could inflict using the stationery on my desk.

The style I’ve chosen for Your Appraisal is Film Noir, used in films such as The Big Combo, A Touch of Evil and recently, Nightcrawler. Although we'll film in colour; I love film noir for it's long takes, deep staging, defined shadows and use of silhouette. These sprang from the necessity of low budgets, where sets weren't always complete; but suited film noir tales of murder and vice. Just like indie-horror films really.

Approximate run time: 6 minutes.

 The Army needs psychics to identify terrorists before they strike. During his ‘special training’, Private Doyle learns failure can be fatal.

 As a teenager, I watched a documentary on The Milgram and Stanford Prison Experiments, which showed that ordinary people only need permission to become extraordinary beasts. In Necessary Evils I’m exploring how far the Military will go to win a war against terrorists, and why people quietly observe evil—and do nothing.

The style is more contemporary, and Gritty British Horror, seen in films like Lawrie Brewster’s The Unkindness of Ravens and Ben Wheatley’s Kill List.

Approximate run time: 5 minutes.

 The Cast - Necessary Evils

NIGEL MERCIER plays Gerwulf and DAWSON JAMES plays Sergeant Whinstone.

FIACH KUNZ plays Private Doyle

 Fiach is an Irish actor who trained at 'The Applied Art of Acting' and then more recently 'Bow Street Academy for Screen Acting'. His theatre work comprises of 'Such Sweet Things', 'In Arabia We'd All Be Kings' and 'Three Days of Rain'. Film work includes numerous short films, the lead roles in Irish independent feature films 'LIFT' (2016), 'Blue Dawn' (2017) and a minor role in Lance Daly's 'Black 47' (2018). Television credits include HBO's 'Game of Thrones'  S5E9 and season two of RTE drama 'Rebellion'. IMDB

 

 Apart from the credits I mentioned earlier, I star in the independent feature film, Hollower (dir. MJ Dixon), and numerous short films including the award winning Mindless (dir. Katie Bonham). My two collections of short stories are What Monsters Do (rated 5* on amazon) and Other People's Darkness. In the 1990's I wrote Hellraiser and Nightbreed comics for Marvel US. Some of the other comics I wrote are included in the Marvel Frontier Collection.

I learned a lot when I filmed The Night Whispered, particularly the importance of working with a great team. And not acting and directing in your movie. And not filming on location on the coldest night of the year in November. (The dog was remarkably well behaved and took direction like a pro.)

Formed in 2015, in Limerick, Ireland by Paddy Murphy, Barry Fahy, Aaron Walsh and Brian Clancy, Celtic Badger Media has released over a dozen shorts and is finishing it’s first feature film; The Three Don’ts. "CBM was built on the ethos of making cool stuff with cool people. In that respect, we are eager to work with Nicholas Vince on these two amazing short films."

 Paddy Murphy comes to film from a background in video-game development. From 2009 to 2012 he co-founded and ran Ireland’s top independent game studio, Open Emotion Studios. In 2014 he began making films beginning with his debut short, Ensnared, where he first worked with Aaron Walsh, Sean Mercier, Adam Moylan and Kevin Kiely Jnr who would become frequent collaborators. In 2015, through Aaron Walsh and Brian Clancy he met Barry Fahy and the rest as they say is history. Together they formed Celtic Badger Media and have made over a dozen short films, a slew of Youtube Content and a feature film; The Three Don’ts which releases later this year. Paddy is a writer, director, producer, gamer, cat wrangler, “keytar" enthusiast and lives on top of a mountain with his wife, children & Chihuahua.

 Aaron Walsh has a bachelors degree in Video and Sound from Limerick Institute of Technology. Since meeting the nefarious Paddy Murphy, Aaron has worked on multiple short films & one feature as an editor and producer. He also talks shite on Youtube in the hopes that people care about what he has to say. Deep down inside he knows they don’t. In 2016, Aaron’s directorial debut Rewind was shortlisted for the Best Action Film award in the My Rode Reel film competition. In his spare time he paints dead animals, using well organised fruit as references.

Barry has been shooting film for over half a decade and in that time has produced some truly exceptional art, including cinematography on Blue Dawn. Barry first met Paddy Murphy on the set of the short film, The Three Don’ts short film. They instantly realised they shared some sort of symbiotic hive mind and set about working on many short films and the feature version of The Three Don’ts. Barry has an incredible eye for detail and is one of the only people ever seen to do a push/pull handheld with no focus puller. He has also produced several Celtic Badger Media shorts including Retribution & The Sad Ones. In 2015 Barry directed his first short film for the My Rode Reel competition – a horror short entitled Please Forgive Me that was filmed in one continuous take. In his spare time, he is an avid Dungeons and Dragons fan, the only thing he dislikes about it are the Dungeons and also the Dragons.

 Patrick graduated from The University of West Scotland in 2002 with a BA Honours degree in Commercial Music.  Since then, Patrick has worked in many roles within the music industry from music management to event organisation and is now currently working as a music teacher.

After many years performing in various bands, Patrick decided to move into creating music specifically aimed at film, TV and Media including 20 film scores and the theme for Chattering With Nicholas Vince.

 All Postage & Package costs include tracked shipping, which makes some items expensive. But your rewards are valuable, and in some cases irreplaceable, so I want to make sure you get them. The range shown is for UK to US shipping. Europe is about half way between and Rest of World is slightly more. 

Photo signed by Skinned Frank and Cenobites

Together on set for the first time in 30 years, on 'The Offer', Barbie Wilde (Female Cenobite II), Simon Bamford (Butterball), Oliver Smith (Skinned Frank) and I took a quick break to sign this unique Hellbound: Hellraiser II photo reward. For the last 48 hours of the campaign, the cost has been slashed by 25% from £80 to £60.

 

 

 This is a labour of love for all involved, so cast and crew are giving their time, talent and expertise for gratis. We even have a location for both films, plus camera and lighting equipment. However, people need to be fed and travel expenses covered; there’s costume, properties, makeup supplies, accommodation, shipping for rewards, Kickstarter fees, insurance and at the end of the shoot, festival submissions fees. The chart below gives you an idea how the money will be spent.

 

Risks and challenges

Film making is hard.

Which is why I decided to team up with an experienced production company. The shoot itself, will no doubt present challenges, they always do. And we’re at risk of losing help as people may need to suddenly work. But, we’ve eliminated many of the hazards of film making by working with an experienced team, indoors and with small casts. So, as long as we get the funds, then I’m as confident as is sensible, we can deliver two chilling films.

    Caged Book

    This is a unique piece offered by Belgian blacksmith John von Peij - inspired by the short film I wrote 'Paper Cut'. (John plays the blacksmith and you can watch it at www.nicholasvince.com/kickstarter.)

    John will create a new cage and attach it to a solid, and heavy, piece of wood - caging your choice of either What Monsters Do or Other People's Darkness. I will also sign the wood of the finished caged book.

    I'll also send you signed and dedicated copies of the paperbacks of What Monsters Do and Other Peoples Darkness; and the rewards listed below.
