"Jennifer Help Us" was a project that came out of necessity. Like many other aspiring filmmakers, we found ourselves in the situation where lack of resources was preventing us from doing what we love. So instead of letting another fruitless year pass, we buckled down, wrote a story, scrounged up some cash, and used the best camera we had at our disposal.
The story was "Jennifer Help Us", the budget less than $1,000, and the camera an iPhone 4s.
With "Jennifer Help Us", we embraced the limitations of shooting on a phone and emulated the style and technique of a late 70s independent horror movie. For the sequel, we wanted to do something entirely different not only in story, but presentation as well. That's why we're jumping forward into the 80s.
"Jennifer Help Us Too!" takes place eight years after the events of of JHU.
Jennifer Help Us Too!
The first thing we want to point out is our rewards turn around time. The majority of our rewards are ready to go, so unlike most kickstarters you get your reward within months instead of years. Also we have access to the means of producing most of the rewards ourselves and wont be dealing with third parties. This ensures personal care, quality, and accountability.
I'll elaborate on a few of the rewards here, but if you haven't put your peepers on all we have to offer, just take a gander over to the right. ------------------------------>
Its hard to find good music you can legally use for your projects. Well, we got one for you. For a pledge as little as a buck, you can legally use this song for any future project. A sample of the song is at the end of the video below.
Being a VHS fan and collector, the reward I'm personally most excited about is the "Jennifer Help Us" ExRental edition VHS.
As mentioned to the right, case, stickers, and sticker placement will vary from tape to tape. We don't want our VHS's to be uniform in an attempt to emulate an authentic thrift store find. Plus each tape will be individually numbered so you know just how many are floating around out there. Each tapes case will be special and unique, like a snowflake... or a millennial.
I bet you thought we were joking about the Chinese Bootleg thing, huh?
Each DVD has been tested for quality and playability on American players. We are in the process of creating and printing a new DVD case sleeve, but we might include the original Chinese one as well because it's just too damn funny.
For those of you looking for a Blu Ray edition of "Jennifer Help Us," you're not going to get one. Seriously, we shot the movie on an iPhone. A 4s to boot. DVD is just about as good of quality as you're going to get. If we tried to sell you on a Blu Ray option, we'd just be stealing your money.
I will be hand printing these bad boys myself. You pay for the shirt and ink, I throw in the Blood, Sweat, and Tears absolutely FREE! Bodily fluids aside, the shirt is a black gildan ultra cotton tee. The two color print will be screen printed using the traditional silk screen method.
We have several other great rewards. If you would like more details on any of them, please feel free to contact us.
For now, we better get onto...
If the kickstarter proves to be successful, (which we hope it does) completion of pre-production will immediately go into effect. Currently the script is in its second draft, and we love it. However, the final draft will be completed upon knowing our final budget. We do not foolheartedly anticipate greatly exceeding the $10,000 mark; however if we do, the script will reflect the increased budget (that means the content will be even more bat crap crazy).
We've begun storyboarding critical scenes and solving potential logistical problems. A lesson we learned form the first movie is that you can never have enough pre-production.
As far as casting and crew are concerned, we have various talent pools from previous projects at our disposal. However, we are big fans of starting our search at the core, then spreading outward as needed. So we will begin the process in Missouri before expanding out to seek assistance from either coast.
As of now the majority of the project will be shot in the town of Carrollton Missouri. "Where?" Carrollton was the primary location of the first movie. The town and its citizens were kind and helpful in the production, and we couldn't have made the first movie without them. We look forward to being a part of the community once again.
One compliment we often receive is on our movies score. Most of the music was created by friends and family. However, that is not the case for our kickstarter video above. We aquired those free beats from http://www.purple-planet.com .

Risks and challenges
As far as rewards are concerned, we aren't tied up with any third parties. The more common rewards should ship within months of this kickstarters completion.
"Jennifer Help Us Too!" is a movie, so literally anything could happen. Between us and our past, we have experienced just about every problem you can run into. We are projecting to complete principle photography by Fall of 2016.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
