Synopsis: An ancient prophesy comes true and the pre-apocalypse begins. This opens up giant portals to hell . Only one man has the knowhowedness to take on the demons coming through these portals. 

Ron Germain demon hunter is about a redneck who battles the forces of evil from outer space , inner space , cyberspace and throughout time. 

Ron Germain demon hunter is a visually spectacular action, horror, comedy that has it's foundation in 80's fun movies. 

When I started this project months ago I was driven by a singular vision and love for 80s style action, horror, comedy movies. My goal was to create a unique movie that the world has never seen. I pulled a few friends together and shot this trailer on a very limited budget. The plan is to do a feature but if we don't raise enough we will settle with a 30 minute short but even that is beyond my ability to finance hence the need for help through crowdfunding. 

Ron Germain Demon Hunter takes place in a variety of exotic locations; space, space shuttle, space station, New York , destroyed New York, inside cyberspace (tron like) , Vietnam 70's , Wild West , Atlantis, to name a few. With no money to work with, we had to solve this by shooting most of the scenes against a green screen backdrop. Shooting on green screen means that we have to recreate these environments digitally instead. 

The advantage of shooting on green screen is that it doesn't require expensive sets or locations to shoot, it is very simple and only requires a small crew, which helped a lot in keeping the costs down. However, once you're done shooting a movie like this, there's a massive post-production phase that requires a lot of time and effort by talented visual effects artists.

When I started this project I knew that I had access to the skillset required to make a movie like this. My awesome CG mastermind friend Gerald Crum can make anything possible but the level and scope of this project is beyond his singular abilities. I need more manpower to finish it. 

With the Kickstarter funding we'll hire a team of 7 visual effects artists who will work closely with Gerald Crum on the post-production for a period of 6 months to complete the film. Pretty much every shot in this film requires some form of visual effects treatment so there's a lot of work to be done. Apart from creating all the environments digitally, there's a lot of CG animated characters such as monsters and giants and godzilla like creatures that requires talented people and lots of time. 

To hire these artists we need to be able to pay them a decent salary. Money will also go to hire an exceptional artist to create the artwork for the movie poster. It will have that classic, illustrated 80s style that you rarely see anymore. Funds will also go to the rewards, such as printing costs for posters and stickers, t-shirts, blu-rays etc. 

We're open to all the help we can get, so if you're are a 3D artist, 3D animator, visual effects artist, compositor, or if you feel like contribute to this movie in any way not mentioned here, please contact us at: alienwolfmgi@gmail.com 

No man should be left empty handed, so we've put together packages of exclusive rewards for each contributor, we have posters, Blu-Rays, roles in action scenes, and more. Find more about the rewards on the panel to the right. 

I'll leave you with this incentive: Right now we are planning on a 30 minute short. If we exceed our goal and get enough to do a feature it would be a dream come true. Think of the adventures we could bring to life together!

RON'S EQUIPMENT- We are using the BLACK MAGIC 4k Camera to shoot this project and we do own our own movie production company MGI PRODUCTIONS. So we have all the sets, lighting, jibs, cranes, audio equipment, etc. to produce this EPIC ADVENTURE

WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP - We need your help to make the film cause we don't have the ability to make the movie without you. We need the funds to make a 4k feature film, the service fee of just making the film is insane. 

WHOSE MAKING THE FILM? The creators of the Project are the TWINS- MICHAEL AND GERALD CRUM  - Co founders of MGI PRODUCTIONS LLC

Risks and challenges

Movies are our passion. This Kickstarter is to bridge the gap between what we can do ourselves and our vision for the project. We are completely committed to completing this film and getting the rewards out to our contributors.
We find that when setbacks arise that we can over come them because we have developed quite a team with so many talents and amazing problem solving experience. We are not just trying to make a movie but more of an interactive experience when it comes to movie making.
