CYBORG X is a movie dedicated to bringing the greasy grime and grit from the Action/Horror classics back to the screen. If you like non stop action, hard hitting explosions, machines that kill, and Danny Trejo, then you"ll love Cyborg X!!!
CYBORG X is independently produced and funded. Just like our last film we used our own money to get this far. The good news is we made it through production and have the whole movie shot. The hardest part is over!!!
CYBORG X takes place in a post apocalyptic world ran by X-Corp, an extreme weapons manufacturer that has been taken over by a deadly cyber virus. Now, armed with a piece of new intelligence, a group of survivors must fight to save what's left of humanity from the army of machines the Virus now controls.
We wanted to go big and reinvent the drone. Below you can see the X-Corp SD1 transform from flying sphere into a battle ready gatling gun.
The Cyborgs were created by CHRIS HANSON at the creature shop and were inspired by our favorite villains from the past. If you look closely you can see a little Darth Vader, a little Bane, and a little Predator.
For more in-depth info please check us out at:
DANNY TREJO (Captain Machine Gun) The legend himself. From stabbing Vampires to gunning down Cyborgs, Danny has done it all. In 2010 Danny became the face of Robert Rodriguez's Machete. Other works include Desperado, From Dusk Till Dawn, Con Air, and more!
JAKE STORMOEN (Wiz) Between slaying Dragons and dismembering orcs, Jake also likes to hack into enemy mainframes. You can catch Jake hosting some behind the scenes footage of Cyborg X below. His most recent works includes War Pigs, The Christmas Dragon, Kiss the Devil in the Dark.
How Kickstarter Works: People pledge an amount and choose a reward. At the end of our 30-day Kickstarter campaign, if the combined total of all pledges for our project meets our $50,000 goal, then the credit cards of those who pledge are charged and we receive the funds to finish our film. If we don't meet our goal, then the money is not withdrawn from your account and no rewards are provided :(. If we exceed our $50,000 goal then the extra funds will be used to make the movie even better - so keep pledging! All funds raised are used directly in the finishing of our film.
Every penny we raise will be used for finishing the movie and making it the best it can be. Making a movie is very expensive especially post production. We need your help to finish all the the cool stuff like VFX, CGI, and sound, and music.
With the extra funds we will be able to do just that. The film has already been shot now we just need to finish it and make it Xtra awesome!!!
Our Rewards: We're not looking for charity, we're looking for an alternate sales venue - that's why our rewards reflect fair market value. Don't think of it as a donation, think of it as a pre-purchase. If you want to see this film, buy it now through Kickstarter - you'll get a better deal from us than from whatever retailer ends up selling it in your country, and you'll help make our film better!!!
The Klimax is small group of filmmakers that love to make movies. Our backgrounds range from Commercials and Music videos to Feature Films.
We do pretty much everything ourselves, from conception and financing, to production and securing distribution. We love the creative freedom that comes with being independent and we love the kind of movies we've been given an opportunity to make.
We were lucky enough to have MoviePilot.com feature a behind the scenes series of Cyborg X starring Jake Stormoen. Below is a quick introduction by Jake himself and a link to the videos. Please check them out!!
Risks and challenges
Film is a complicated technical exercise, and often unforeseen difficulties arise, causing budget and scheduling overruns — particularly when complex visual effects are involved. That being said, this film is largely complete. A great deal of the risk in the project has already been mitigated, and we are too far along to turn back and give up. We are seeking funding to complete the final visual effects, post sound, and we have the personnel to pull it off, regardless of complications.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
