About

First off I'd like to thank you for checking out this campaign. My name is Mark Smith, I'm the creator and writer of Days End. I have started this campaign in hopes of raising funds to produce this feature film. What I have is a killer story, but I need your help to bring this story to life. In 2014, I wrote the first draft of Days End. Since then my dream has been to see this story come to life. With your help I hope to create a film unlike any other. Making films are extremely expensive. The money from this campaign will be used for the following things below.

Equipment rental costs - Film & processing - Production insurance - Location fees - Casting - Production design and costume costs - Food for cast and crew - Post-production costs (Edit, Color/Finishing, Sound)

The Story

Days End is a story about an ordinary family from New Jersey. After being captured by a unknown military force and locked in a concentration camp. They escape from the camp with the help of an unknown third party. This leads to a deadly game of cat and mouse of sinister proportion.

Questions:

What will we do if we don't reach our goal ?

If we don't reach our goal, then all funds raised will be returned to the campaign contributors.

When will the rewards become available / be shipped ?

Each Perk has an Estimated Delivery month listed in description. You will be notified of any delays.The script will be sent out on, or shortly after, the day the movie is released. Digital deliveries will be sent out as an email after the end of the campaign as downloadable links.

What name will be used for the credits ?

We hope to use your real name, and we will ask you for your real name as part of the post­-campaign survey. We may ask for a copy of proof of your identity and name. We may consider the option of using your Kickstarter username or an alternate name. If you want to put someone else’s name in the credits (a friend or family member), you will be able to submit their name in the survey

How do I give you my details and preferences (like shirt size) ?

Once the project has ended, we will email you a survey to ask for all the info we need to make sure you get your perk. That’s when you can give us details like shipping address, and your preferences. We expect to get the survey out to you immediately following the end of the campaign, and we need all of your details by December 1st.

What if my address changes ?

If you move before the perks are shipped out, get in touch with us via your Kickstarter account as soon as you can and we'll do our best to accommodate the change.

Can I claim more than one perk ?

Each contribution made is recorded as a separate contribution with a separate perk. So, if one awesome perk is not enough for you, all you have to do is make separate transactions for as many separate perks as you want!

Can I change my perk ?

If you decide you’d like to change or upgrade your perk to another one, get in touch with us via the campaign and we’ll see if we can help you out.

What if I want to pledge/make a contribution for a friend or family member ?

You make your pledge or contribution out to anyone you want! At the end of the campaign we will send out a survey to collect the information we need to fulfill your perks. In that survey you will be able to specify a name and address for the perks to be made out to.

How do I know if my contribution has been successful ?

If your contribution is successful, an automatic confirmation email will be sent to the email address you provided during the contribution process.

Risks and challenges

All sorts of risks and challenges arise as you create a film. During the pre-production stages of the short film many thing went wrong, but I handled it all with grace and was still able to film the short. My biggest challenges for the feature will be finding the cast and crew. while working out the scheduling to make sure everything works cohesively.
