About this project
WE'VE ADDED A REWARD CATEGORY! We created a new category at the $40 level called "The Watcher" which will allow people to get a physical copy of "Kiss the Devil in the Dark" at a less expensive pledge rate. The current $100 pledge rate to get the double feature for "Comatose Mother" and "Kiss the Devil" will now be a signed copy of the film from the filmmakers and Doug Jones.
KISS THE DEVIL IN THE DARK is a dark fantasy film set in a mythical Victorian-era world. This is a story of magic, demons, love, lust, friendship, betrayal and hell.
TAGLINE: Betrayal is the darkest magic.
Desperate to save his dying wife, the powerful sorcerer Marcus makes a deal with the demon Dagon to save her soul. Dagon, however, has more in mind for Marcus than just a simple exchanging of souls. With seemingly no other choice, Marcus accepts, thus catapulting him into a series of events that will reveal to all involved the very meaning of betrayal.
Kickstarter allows for us as filmmakers to not only involve many other potential fans and interested parties into the creation and filmmaking process, it also allows us to give back to those same people. We are able to expand our reach, which allows every single person who becomes involved to put their name onto a product that they can be proud of and that has a chance at being seen by a larger, and more appreciative, audience.
Also, Kickstarter allows us to give away some amazing, highly exclusive rewards that you simply won't be able to find anywhere else. Not only will you get bragging rights from having your name in the credits, but you'll also have the opportunity to own your own little piece (or big piece!) of cinematic history.
It is our hope that we not only hit our goal, but far exceed it, which will allow us to create even more awesome and amazing effects, a more dynamic score, and more. We need your help, and we look forward to rewarding you greatly for it!
The money that we raise will go entirely to post-production. As mentioned in the video, we are already done with production and the edit of the film. The money will allow us to make the most out of all the tasks remaining to complete the film. These jobs left remaining are: Visual FX, Sound Design and Mixing, Score, Additional Dialogue Recording (ADR), and Color Processing and Grading.
The more money we get, the more amazing and spectacular the magic fx will be in the film. Same goes for the score, which will allow us to record with a full orchestra instead of resorting to cheesier sounding synthetic recordings.
In short, we're working hard to make this film as polished and high-quality as possible, so everyone involved from filmmaker to donor can be proud of their name being attached to the project.
We want to give you the best rewards that we can think of that are unique to "Kiss the Devil in the Dark." In fact, we're offering OVER 45 reward categories, from the affordable to crazy cool, one of a kind items!
These rewards consists from the usual (digital posters, scripts, etc.) to one of a kind items like the costumes and props used in the film. We're even offering the one-of-a-kind Dagon costume, that was worn by Doug Jones himself, in the film. Speaking of costumes, we're also giving away a few of the FULL costumes some of the characters wore in the film. Please explore ALL of the many cool options we have on the right hand side, as they are not few in number.
Thank you so very much for your help and support. We can't do this without you, and we absolutely can't wait to get this film finished and out to you! "Kiss the Devil in the Dark" is truly a collaborative effort from start to finish, and we can't wait to reward you for your generosity. Now let's get all of you rewarded and all of your names onto the film's credits so that we can show the world what WE did!
Remember, there are over 45 rewards available on the right, so be sure to read through them all to pick the one that's right for you!
Risks and challenges
Our biggest risk is that it may take our artists longer to get the film finished in post and miss our end of February deadline to finish the film. This sometimes happens, but we feel it will most likely not.
As every Film Festival is different in how they make their selections, we may not be able to get into as many festivals as we hope or even play in a festival near you. That remains to be seen. But the film will eventually be released in a way that everyone can have access to it around the globe, and we look forward to getting it to you and screening it for you in any way we can.
Lastly, some of the rewards may take longer to get ready to send you, such as the final promotional poster for the film. That being said, we feel highly confident to have this film finished by March 2014 at the latest and ready for a festival run this Spring, and that will include all the rewards and awesome stuff we want to give you. Fortunately, we already have almost every reward we plan on giving you, so you can feel confident in being rewarded properly.
Ultimately, the creative team behind this project has completed many great films and plan on completing many more great films in the future and we are dedicated to you to get this film finished at the highest quality possible. We don't want our names going onto something less than awesome, and we want to assure you that you should feel confident in lending your name to that final vision of amazing.
