About this project

Natalie, who's having major boyfriend issues, Jamie, three months single, and Brittany, always down to party, sign up for the latest trend STABCHAT. It's a social website that allows you to meet and chat with new people by sending and receiving auto-deleting media. This is a decision they quickly regret when they are bombarded and tormented with gruesome violent clips. With stabchat's auto-erase feature, who will believe them with no evidence? Will they get through the night or become the next victims of the media dubbed Stabchat Killer? With over 100 million fake profiles on the internet to date, who are they really talking to?

"Dear Editor, I am the killer of the 2 teenagers last Christmass at Lake Herman and the Girl last 4th of July. To Prove this I shall state some facts which only I & the police know" Zodiac Killer (Identity Still Unknown)

Stabchat is a low budget horror thriller shot completely in the iconic Los Angeles, CA. Although there are A LOT of benefits that come with shooting in LA, from eerie back alleyways to endless traffic, it would have been next to impossible to complete principal photography with our extremely limited budget. This is where kickstarter comes in.

We are looking to raise $17,000 for Stabchat with all the money going to four main categories.

#1 Completing Production: $9,000 The majority of the funds raised will go into completing principal photography. We have 1/3 of the film left to shoot plus a few re-shoots.

#2 Color Correction: $3,000 The camera doesn't always record with complete color accuracy. A colorist will enhance and stylize the image while addressing problematic sequences. This is VERY IMPORTANT for all horror movies.

#3 VFX/SFX: $3,000 Although Stabchat isn't effects heavy we will be using this portion to strengthen, intensify, and perfect all the kill scenes.

#4 Music Composition: $2,000 A great score will profoundly enhance the emotions portrayed, as well as, amplify the impact of our film.

EVERY EXTRA DOLLAR will not only add financial security to the project but help add awareness of Stabchat through various marketing campaigns. Also our production team believes stabchat has the potential to expand into multiple sequels.

Writer, Director, Producer: Nick Taylor

Cast: Chelsea Gilson, Meghan Smith, Delila  Outlaw, Ciara Trujillo, Joshua Buchanan, Louis Hernandez, Malin Steffen, Jessica R., Sarah Hernandez, Adrian Wolford, Jennifer Gram

Crew: Michael Hernandez, Christian Bedoya, Daniel Goodman, Kelsey Fiscus, Natalie Hare, Mike F., Mark B. Edited By: Anna Peters

Risks and challenges

Stabchat will be completed with your help! There's a great story here and we will use every dollar raised to make Stabchat the best film it could possibly be. The timetable is uncertain and heavily reliant on this campaign.

After we finish Stabchat, we will apply to film festivals across the globe as well as a few other alleyways with one goal in mind: securing distribution. Thank you for taking the time out of your day to check out our Stabchat Kickstarter Project! Have an awesome rest of your day and Happy 2014!
