Full length horror feature, filmed and edited, in the very last stages of post production, needs some of that Kickstarter magic.
Exciting times for us as we come within a whisker of finishing our feature film production "Crypt", but we're not over the finishing line yet, and we need your help as we put the last touches to the film.
WHAT WILL THE MONEY BE USED FOR?
For £35,000 we will have enough to cover the soundtrack, grade and sound mix, allowing us to deliver a film that is already drumming up exciting publicity. Additionally, as much as we love Facebook and it's promotional opportunities, we need to build our own bespoke kick ass "Crypt" website to promote the film and to thank all the wonderful supporters that came via Kickstarter. The website will include a Kickstarter wall of fame, where we'll include all those who kindly supported us.
The feature film Crypt was shot towards the end of 2012 in the same church used for Les Miserables. The concept was to take the found footage genre and marry it with the traditional film style and technique and have a fast paced fusion that told the story from two apposing sides in a hugely entertaining film.
Not wanting to give too much away, but as you'll see from the trailer the story revolves around the Church's investigation into the deaths of a young group in the Crypt of one it's churches. The church happen across a camera which had been used to film the events, and having seen the footage, decide to withhold if from the police and public, as the revelation of the footage would destroy all credibility in the church, their only alternative, to try and take on the problem themselves.
The film was shot on the Arri Alexa (Skyfall, Avengers) and the found footage on a high end consumer camera. The film is cut, and with this last amount raised, the film will be complete by the end of May, and ready for distribution around November.
The film is quickly gathering interest, with various magazines, newspapers and websites covering it.
We believe Kickstarter is the ideal place for Crypt to reach it's goal, given the freedom it allows in connecting directly with passionate and genuine film supporters, and in return we believe we can offer some unique and fantastic rewards.

Risks and challenges
The risks here are negligible. The film is nearly complete and will be once funds received. If Crypt has a succesful Kickstarter campaign, we are guaranteed distribution.
Crypt was conceived in the Summer of 2012 with principle photography commencing late September. Written and directed by Mark Murphy, who's credits include Casanova's Last Stand (starring Patrick Bergin and Armande Assante), Movie Kingdom, The Croatian Dream, etc. Produced by Yvette Hoyle who previously worked alongside Mark, producing Casanova. The cast is an eclectic group, starring Mark Harris (Anuvahood, Outside Bet, Brighton Rock), Lucy Drive (Hard Shoulder, The Borgias, Coulda, Woulda, Shoulda), Peter Woodward (The Patriot, National Treasure 2) and Jan Chappell (Basic Instinct 2, The Devils). With a blisteringly talented crew we've made a film that we're now extremely eager to get in front of an audience.
