Hi everyone! My name is Sunshine.  Well, it’s not, but that’s what I go by on my YouTube channel.  On my channel I have some pretty crazy ongoing adventures with the paranormal.  Check it out! www.YouTube.com/Hauntedushinegirl

The purpose of this Kickstarter is to raise funds for a film about an all new adventure!  My absolute favorite paranormal legend is about Black Eyed Kids or BEK’s. They’re super creepy and I’ve wanted to know more about them for a really long time and I think doing a film about them is perfect.

So I live near Portland, Oregon and it coincidentally seems to be a hot spot for Black Eyed kids sightings!  I also recently received a letter from a man asking me to come talk to him about BEK’s because he had some really interesting information about them as well as a friend who went missing after he had an encounter. He has lots of information so I thought it would be a good idea to kick off our film by visiting him in Portland and try to catch a BEK on film!

So all that lead me to the idea of this KickStarter! It’s not only an opportunity to make a really cool film but also share some really neat rewards with my supporters. I’ve decided to try and raise some money to travel to Portland, Oregon for a few days, rent some real movie equipment, hire a small crew, hire someone to edit all the footage we get and even have the movie show in theaters! It might seem like a lot of money but it’s really only a fraction of what most movies are made for.  I’m setting the goal low so we can hopefully reach it but if we can raise more, that will make for an even better film!  And since it’s me, you know the movie is going to be crazy awesome!  You wanna pledge your support don’t you?

Let’s talk about the awesomely cool rewards!  Kickstarter is a pretty cool service that lets you pledge whatever amount you want and you get the reward that matches up with your pledge amount.  But if we don’t reach our goal, you won’t be charged. It's all or nothing so help make sure we reach our goal! 

Just look at all the cool stuff you can get from me and support me at the same time!  Cool, exclusive DVDs signed by me that you can only get if you support my kickstarter and tons of other stuff, even opportunities to hang out with me while we film the movie or to see the movie before almost anyone else sees it!  I can’t stress enough how cool all this is and how these rewards you can get will never be offered anywhere again so they’re super exclusive and this is your only chance to get in on the action.  Perfect for christmas presents! If you think you might buy the movie when it comes out anyway why not pre-order here and have the satisfaction knowing you helped me make the movie in the first places!

So check out the rewards section, pick out your level of support, make your pledge and let’s make this awesome movie together! 

Check out some clips from my channel! 

Oh, here's something kind of cool.  I've had a YouTube channel for a little under a year at this point and I've been working really hard at it to make it successful. And one of the goals was to get permission from YouTube to be one of the very FEW actual YouTube shows!  There are millions of members on YouTube, about 25,000 partners but only about 400 YouTube shows.  And of all the shows in all of YouTube we are currently ranked as the #1 show in Science Fiction.  Pretty awesome right?  Here's my show page...http://www.youtube.com/show/thehauntingofsunshinegirl  And here's a link to all the Sci-Fi shows and you'll see we're #1... for good reason, it's an awesome channel. Click here to see!

My very first video!

My biggest viral video.  Pretty creepy. 

A fan trailer! Edited all by a fan from my footage.  Super cool. 

Thanks for scrolling all the way down and seeing all the cool rewards.  Just for that, here's what some people are saying about my work and channel.

    Let's be honest. This movie is going to blow you away. And it'd be cool to have an exclusive DVD at the $50 donation level but it would be even better if you got your hands on some real collectors items like a signed, Special Edition DVD and a signed collectors edition T-shirt. Now we're talking! And you're helping me make my movie which means you get my endless gratitude.

    I get it. Having everything at the $150 level is cool and all but actually getting credit for the movie? Now that's an incentive! So that's what you get at this level, everything at the $150 and an associate producer credit. "How do you like them apples?" That's what you can say to your friends when you show them the movie. And they can be jealous and you can continue your reign as coolest friend in the group, just the way you like it.

    It's pretty epic when you get an invitation to an exclusive, super secret advanced screening and party. It pretty much sucks when you don't. So don't make your life suck and donate $500 to our film and that's exactly what you'll get! At this level you will get an invitation to an exclusive, super secret advanced screening and party with Sunshine and cast in Portland Oregon where you will get to see the film in advance, you will get a signed copy of the DVD and plenty of time to hang out with Sunshine and crew throughout the evening. Unfortunately only 50 people can take advantage of this and get their invitation and increase the odds of their lives not sucking. Do it now!

    This is a lot of money! What could possibly be worth this much money? Oh I know, how about a walk on role in the coolest film ever? And no I'm not talking about Pride and Prejudice, that's already been filmed. At this level you get everything at the $500 level and a speaking role in our movie! I don't even need to break down how awesome this is but it is important to know there's only three available so jump on it before that guy you hate gets it and he gets to be in the movie and you don't!
