About

She screamed and jiggled her way through over 120 cult horror and comedy films of the 1980s, such as The Return of the Living Dead, Night of the Demons, Silent Night, Deadly Night, A Nightmare on Elm Street 4, Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers, Pumpkinhead II, Sorority Babes in the Slimeball Bowl-o-Rama, Nightmare Sisters, Savage Streets, Beach Babes from Beyond, Cheech & Chong's Still Smokin', and so...SO many more. Now, Queen of the B-movies, Linnea Quigley, steps BEHIND the camera with her directorial debut EXTRAS!

During her 30 years of attendance at film conventions around the world, Linnea has met thousands of fans who dream of getting their face imprinted on film... or these days, the digital medium. Their stories are many, their paths different and their personal lives varied - yet what connects them isn't the need for fame, but rather simply to say they've "been in a movie," often without wanting dialogue! What strikes Linnea more, though, is the lengths to which they'll go to make this dream come true. Typically on their own dime these passionate people will drive hundreds of miles with the hopes, but no guarantee, of getting seen somewhere in the feature, even among a crowd in the background. 

So what makes these people tick? Discovering the answer is the goal for the actress, who began her own career as, you guessed it, an extra. With your help, Linnea plans to follow some of these extras from conventions, home lives, and those much desired film sets. She'll also interview actors who also began their careers as extras. Helping her produce is 20 year B-movie veteran Jason Paul Collum (Screaming in High Heels: The Rise & Fall of the Scream Queen Era and Something to Scream About), whose documentaries and feature-length movies have sold to companies like NBCUniversal and aired on networks such as Showtime, SyFy, Chiller, and On Demand. 

The budget for this documentary will cover the production costs such as camera equipment, cinematographers, travel and hotel, office materials, plus post-production needs like editing, music, graphics, designers, and printing/posters. 

So come on! Help a former extra learn about the current generation of extras, and make her own giant leap into the director's chair!!

Risks and challenges

While we feel we have covered our bases in keeping the budget for this project low-but-affordable for all elements from pre-production through post-production and release, there is always the possibility additional funds will be needed to see us through to the end. Executive Producer Jason Paul Collum will at this time expect to pay for the remainder of any additional funds needed up to $4,000. Beyond that more crowd-funding would be attempted.
