The Story

Grandma Werewolf is the Riverside Studios team's first feature film! It's about a family that goes to their recently widowed grandmother's cabin for Thanksgiving, where they find out their grandmother is actually a werewolf. Without Grandpa around to stop her, the family must put aside their problems, learn magic, and steal a silver sword to subdue the Grandma Werewolf!

The Cost

The financial need this Kickstarter campaign aims to meet ranges from budget elements such as food/lodging for our outstanding cast and crew to the fees we will need to submit the final project to film festivals!

Our passionate crew and cast members, all of whom have made incredible time and/or financial investments to this project, aren't receiving any compensation up-front. We have been blessed to find such amazing talent, who have committed to bringing this project to life. We would like to increase our funding to ensure we are able to take excellent care of them!

 

Risks and challenges

There are many risks and challenges that face us in creating an original feature-length film, but some of the biggest are...
- Working with our cast and crew's schedules
- Securing locations
- Olivia being hangry
- Getting our project seen
...So you better go share it!
