About this project

NO REWARD, ONLY SURVIVAL
Bounty Hunters encounter more than just a murderer on the run when they are confronted by a seemingly endless horde of the undead.
Thank you for taking the time to learn more about DEAD BOUNTY
While on the search for a fleeing felon, a group of bounty hunters lead by "Bosk" (Tony Moran) and "Henry" (Timothy Patrick Quill) head into a vast New England forest in hopes to capture this dangerous man. Closing in on their quarry, the group encounters more than just a murderer on the run when they are confronted with a seemingly endless horde of the undead. With no shelter, no help and no end to the carnage, survival seems hopeless.
Filming begins in October 2013 and will be shot on a RED EPIC.
On an independent level, DEAD BOUNTY, has one of the most recognizable horror icons, Michael Myers (Tony Moran), and Timothy Patrick Quill who was the 'Blacksmith' in the cult classic "Army of Darkness" plus many other great films including "Spider-Man 1-3", "My Name is Bruce" and recently "Oz the Great and Powerful"
These achievements, sets this film apart from others while still being able to be made at a modest budget. This is achieved in many ways. Strong writing, which attracts talented actors who may generally shy away from independent films. Dedicated crew, who are willing to work hard and believe in the project. Availability to equipment and utilizing the equipment with members of the film community.

What we Need
We are currently looking for additional funds for production and post-production. The goal has been set at a modest $4000.00 due to the fact that if we don't reach our goal, we don't get a cent. All money raised will be used for this film. The budget will go towards special effects, set design, props, wardrobe, and post production needs such as sound design. Thankfully, we have access to some gear so that will help keep the costs down, plus we have some other sources of financing that are being used for pre-production and production. One way or another, DEAD BOUNTY will be made
Risks and challenges
Some risks include delay in production caused by; weather, illness or other reasons out of our control.
What I've learned over the years is that things always come up during production. Getting past those challenges and continue to move forward is what makes a production team successful! With the experience combined within this project, we'll do our best to get it done no matter what obstacles may get in our way. Even if we get zero dollars with this additional funding project, DEAD BOUNTY will get completed, just how long it takes depends on funds.
While others may let some things get them down, that's when we, as a film family, become closer and move forward to our final goal.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
Dead Bounty is scheduled to shoot between October 10th - 24th 2013
