Victims is a feature film about a woman with memory loss who goes on a date with a man who may have a dangerous secret. To describe all of the narrative twists and turns beyond that would ruin the surprises, but rest assured that Victims will be a suspenseful, bloody ride.
Writer/Director/Editor Cameron Cook, who has specialized in micro-budget films for the last three years, is setting out to make his first feature film--a feminist horror film about power, memory, and identity. He is inspired by the films of Nicholas Roeg, John Carpenter, Ingmar Bergman, Richard Linklater, and David Lynch.
Victims will be the result of Upstate South Carolina's amazing arts scene and filmmaking community. We will exclusively hire local talent for the production, from the actors to the director of photography to the sound recordists and the craft services, each role will be filled by South Carolina natives.
With your help, we can give jobs to all of these amazing artists in the area, and we can create something scary and suspenseful.
Our funds will go toward pre-production (location scouting, logistics), production (equipment rental, paying our talented cast and crew, paying for our locations, feeding the cast and crew, and set design and props), and post-production (editing, color grading, sound design, original score, marketing, and the film festival circuit)
Though our goal states $8,000, that is the smallest amount of money we can possibly do this feature with. We have a realistic goal of $25,000 that we are pursuing for this feature. If we get $25,000, we would be making the movie that we have set out to make.
Risks and challenges
Once we are funded, the greatest challenge we will face is the festival circuit. Not only is it expensive to submit to festivals, but it's even more expensive to attend them. On top of that, films with no big name stars have a hard time hitting the circuit hard. For that reason, we are trying to raise as much money as possible in order to raise the production value.
While the director and the crew are used to making low-budget projects look expensive, the more we can get, the better the film will look and sound.
The festival circuit is where the film will find its distribution, and that will be the largest hurdle to jump.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
