Hello horror fans, welcome to the official Kickstarter campaign for Retro Redux Entertainment's "Reviving Camp Blood"!
It's been 30 years since Camp Crystal Lake was indefinitely shut down. Now in 2018, Nancy Baker is determined to bring life back to the abandoned area. When her and a group of young counselors help rebuild the camp, it doesn't take long before they remember why it was shut down in the first place. These are Jason's woods, and anyone who enters must deal with the consequences.
Reviving Camp Blood is a Friday the 13th Fan Film, set in 2018, 30 years after Camp Crystal Lake was closed up for good. While this does take place in the present, we still pay homage to the 80’s horror franchise we all know, and love.
The script we have written includes extensive amounts of practical effects, as well as traditional filmmaking elements, which requires products that we as independent filmmakers just can't afford. Independent filmmaking is extremely difficult and expensive, and that’s where we need your help.
Here is a breakdown of how your funds will be utilized:
PRODUCTION: This will cover all of the equipment that we will use in the production of the film such as; cameras, sound, lighting, insurance, etc.
MAKEUP AND EFFECTS: We are heavily relying on practical effects, rather than VFX, to make our kills, and our killer, look as realistic as possible.
PROPS/WARDROBE/JASON COSTUME: This portion will help us dress our counselors and Jason, and buy all the props and weapons to make sure that every scene is memorable.
POST PRODUCTION: These expenses will help cover our editing and visual effects added after the film is shot, and will add any finishing touches to the project.
KICKSTARTER FEES AND REWARD FULFILLMENT: We will need this to help cover our expense in getting the rewards to our loyal fans. We cannot thank you enough for donating to our project!
Since we are asking for you to put your faith in us, we would like to show you what we are capable of. We produced a Friday the 13th Fan Film in 2016, with absolutely no budget, which has reached almost 190,000 views. While obtaining a large audience, it also maintained a like to dislike ratio of 2,100 likes to 60 dislikes. Hopefully, this past film shows you the product that we are capable of making.
Every backer will receive exclusive updates and production information! We also have plenty of "killer" rewards as a thank you for supporting our project! These include our Reviving Camp Blood T-Shirt, limited edition Camp Crystal Lake Counselor T-Shirt, Camp Crystal Lake Postcard, limited edition Camp Blood Postcard, as well as many digital items to choose from. We also have options to purchase props, used on screen in Reviving Camp Blood!
Retro Redux Entertainment is a small, low budget film and photo production company based just outside of Chicago, IL. We specialize in horror shorts; however, our work spans from podcast work to modernized trailers. While some of our videos are made for tutorial and teaching purposes, most are made for pure entertainment. Our crew is full of many energetic members with extremely hard-working and determined mindsets.
Riley Lorden has been making films since a very young age and continues to study film and media, while pursuing his dream of becoming a film director. He's also responsible for all of the editing and cinematography on all of the shoots, while also being involved in most of the writing.
Nic Christian is definitely the mastermind behind many projects. His charisma and determination has led to many successful projects, including the 2016 Friday the 13th Fan Film, and JACK, along with our podcast - Slash ‘N Cast. He manages to do all of this, while still finding a healthy balance with college, where he studies Aviation Administration.
Griffin Thatcher has been by Riley's side since the very beginning. He's a gifted writer with some very unique and creative ideas, in which he's extremely excited to present to the world in the future. He currently is working full time to monetarily support the podcast, while still making it back to help with on camera endeavors. He played Jason in the 2016 Friday the 13th fan film and can not wait to put the mask back on!

FAN FILM=NO RIGHTS
Retro Redux Entertainment / Slash ‘N Cast is in no way affiliated with Paramount Pictures, New Line Cinema, or anyone one else associated with the Friday the 13th Franchise. If anyone from those entities takes issue with what we are trying to accomplish, we will happily comply with whatever is asked of us by those parties.
The budget for this project is to cover expenses needed to complete the film. We are not trying to profit or compete with the existing franchise. This film is strictly for the fans, from the fans. The final product will be made available to everyone via various web outlets. Backers will receive an exclusive first look at the completed film and updates including behind the scenes over the course of production.
Any and all funds left over upon completion of the project will be donated to Bothin Burn Center, in San Francisco California. As the first burn center in California, the Bothin Burn Center continuously innovates and treats burns from critical care through rehabilitation.
You may know that the Bothin Burn Center was the place where the legendary Kane Hodder (Jason Voorhees in Friday the 13th Parts 7-10) recovered from life threatening burns across his whole body, as well as countless others since their opening in 1967.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
