WHAT IS THIS PROJECT ABOUT?

The Bunny Man rumored to be the Easter Bunny is an urban legend originating from two incidents in Fairfax County Virginia in 1970, but has been spread throughout the Washington D.C. area. There are many variations to the legend, but most involve a man wearing a rabbit costume who attacks people with an axe.

Easter Sunday Movie is only loosely based on this Urban Legend. Easter Sunday is a throwback horror film in the vein of the 80's slasher genre. The writer, creator and director of this film Jeremy Morehead is a die hard horror movie fanatic who is bringing fourth his vision of 80's gore fill to the film. Douglas Fisher is the bunny masked villain in the film. Douglas is as menacing as the likes of Freddy Krueger, and Jason Voorhees. This film will be fun, fast paced, and at times filled with edge of your seat tension. The Poster is original art by Marc Shoenbach

This film means an awful lot to us and Kickstarter is the perfect place for us to launch the project as it allows us to involve you, the audience, who we are ultimately making this film for. We love Independent cinema and we love horror so to be able to combine the two and bring you a film very close to the heart would be a dream come true! Your help by backing us can make this happen!

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

So, the question that is likely on your minds is: how will we overcome challenges?

We anticipate that there will be challenges and risks while the film is in production. From actors' schedules to permit mishaps, there will likely be several hiccups. However, with how the movie has been framed, production can last through all seasons if need be. We will be backing up the video files to several drives to safeguard against catastrophic failure.

We are the first to admit that our background in filmmaking is minimal. However, ever since Jeremy Morehead has had this idea we have been educating ourselves in the art of directing and production. In addition, we have been in contact with folks in the area who have a background and experience with filmmaking, so we will not be without any guidance or assistance. Our diverse backgrounds and skills will quickly alleviate any unforseen issues.

In any event, we will be keeping our patrons up-to-date on production, including any issues that pop up along the way. Our plan is to do as much preparation as possible to prevent any issues in the first place. Call it the "Organization and preperation" plan. About how "Easter Sunday Movie" came to be.

The idea came to Jeremy Morehead during a discussion with friends about what makes for a good 80's slasher film - suspense, a growing sense of dread, and black humor mixed with points of ruthless evil. From the very first scene to the last we envision a film going back to the roots of slasher films - To that effect, the film relies upon the imagery created by dialogue and shots, rather than rapid-fire editing and quick shocks.

We are huge fans of the 80's slasher genre and beyond. Many of the tropes associated with modern films simply don't fit our vision. The days of scream-queen scenes, moments where characters make stupid mistakes. The characters are well-developed and believable, which to me, adds to the emotional investment for the viewer. This movie is about story.
Our motto for this movie is "low budget can be great". We have seen a lot of independent movies that would be good except for some major flaws, mostly within the script and characters. As Independent filmmakers we have to focus on conjuring up fantastic stories and likeable, believable characters that serve more than just convenient targets. This script and its characters, does not break away from that stereotype slasher movie.

Jeremy Morehead has been writing the script over the course of this last year, and so far, the feedback on it from potential actors and crew members has been very positive. The script has been finished, though minor details and lines will be edited as the film progresses. The script is more than 70 pages, giving enough material for a full-length feature presentation. It is our intention to create a fully-fleshed out movie that all fans of the genre could enjoy. Jeremy Morehead first conceived this project in 2012. Jeremy was in the process of writing the script while working on The Madison Apart music video Showstopper.
Thanks to a variety of unexpected circumstances, the opportunity to produce the piece quickly turned from an idea to a reality as a chance moment presented itself and Jeremy decided to start production.We have been able to form an excellent artistic team, all dedicated to telling the story, an ideal performance space became available, and all of the schedules serendipitously aligned. Everything fell into place. Except the funding to pull it off.
Our primary motivation in creating this story was to challenge a group of artists and an audience to truly invest in an 80's style slasher film. After all, the most epic moments of our lives are in between life and death and they can change in a heartbeat.

With rehearsals underway, we are deep in the midst of the creative process. Meanwhile, we have secured all technical crew and designers and we currently have filmed a teaser trailer which you can see above.
The truly amazing part of this project, beyond our personal joy in being able to tell a story of our creation, is that all of the artists, designers and technical crew have signed on knowing payment might be an impossibility. That, simply put, is dedication to artistry.

I believe it is my personal responsibility to ensure that these artists be recognized and rewarded for that dedication. Additionally, your pledges will off-set expenses associated with the production of the movie. It is these things that will allow us to create a production of the highest caliber.

A full-length horror film based on the iconic slasher genre. This will be one of the most twisted films ever to be produced. is a revision of the old school slasher genre that terrified us for three decades. During the late 1970's to the early 1990's, films like Nightmare On Elm Street, Friday The 13th, and Halloween were the iconic films that made us look under our beds before we went to sleep at night. Sadly, those days have become a distant memory to us. "Easter Sunday" is a film about friends that are in a race against time to survive becoming a target for the Bunny Man. We at Northgate Pictures, are going to bring this film to life so the horror lovers of today can truly appreciate what a slasher film should and can be. The horror films of today are all about the gore factor, forgetting about the true essence of horror and the raw fear that their film should inflict on its viewers. Our original plan for this film was to fund it entirely on our own but as we started to draw up a budget, it soon became clear that wasn't possible. We need your help. The $2,000 we are trying to raise is the absolute minimum we need to make the film a reality. The entire cast and crew have been gracious enough to donate their time to the project free of charge. What this means is that all the money donated will end up on screen. Better lighting. Better props. A better experience for the viewer.

Jeremy Morehead (Writer/Creator/Director) and Zakk Farkas (Editor/advisor) are in the metal band "Madison Apart". They have toured and opened up for multiple national acts. Zakk directed their music video http://www.youtube.com/watch… After the directing/editing process, Zakk took on Editing of the Easter Sunday film with open arms. Jared Jamieson worked on the Special Fx for the Walking dead themed Music Video. The 2k will help greatly with post production. Jason Delgado will be starring as Ryan Tate and also Co- Executive Producing. Jason Delgado is a former Marine who has been dealing with extreme dangerous situations throughout his career in Loss Prevention and Asset Protection. The only risk in production of this film is how badass it will be... the answer to that is very badass.
