Please note, the Pull Over video above is not intended to be a reflection of the tone, look or sound of End of The Road. Rather, it is meant as an entertaining way to pitch the project. Your donations will help us provide better lighting, sound design and (most importantly) actors. End of The Road will be a tense, serious and vicious werewolf film that we feel the genre has been lacking for decades.

In the movie monster sub genres there is a well-known shortage of great werewolf movies. Every other monster, ghost and/or ghoul have had their fair share of iconic classics. You can count the great werewolf movies on one hand and that’s in over SEVENTY-FIVE YEARS of cinema! Take a second and make your own list. Go on, we can wait…. 

Pencils down. 

See what we’re talking about?

We are a team of professional filmmakers who've had a passion for great horror films our entire lives and now we want to create an iconic werewolf movie set in a harsh cinematic reality like it has never been done before. In order to get the ball rolling on our feature-length werewolf movie with the proper budget, carnivorous gore and(most importantly) true horror we must first produce a short werewolf film with your help. This short will be used to show to studios and potentially larger investors. Additionally we will be submitting End of The Road to film festivals in order to get our faces (or snouts) out there. Speaking of which...

We are very excited and pleased to announce that Through The Woods, J. Spencer's feature-length werewolf screenplay, is a finalist at the world famous Shriekfest International Horror, Sci-Fi and Fantasy Film Festival and Screenplay Competition!

End Of The Road is the catalyst for producing Through The Woods. That's what we're aiming to do here and that's why we need your help.

A small movie can be the impetus for creating a bigger movie. That's what we're aiming to do here and that's why we need your help.

END OF THE ROAD

Dana (small town waitress) offers a warm meal to an enigmatic drifter in a rundown diner at the edge of town. Little does she know she’s let a vicious and calculative werewolf loose on the diner’s colorful population, slashing everyone to ribbons and saving Dana for last unless she can find the strength to escape.

OUR BACKGROUND:

We've been making movies our entire lives and that’s not an exaggeration. Before we all found each other as filmmaking peers, we were all little kids making movies with Dad’s camera and the family pets. In middle school we began meeting and started making movie magic. By the end of college we had produced over fifty film and video shorts and two feature-length films. Now, after working for the better part of a decade in the film industry here in Los Angeles, we’re a group of professional filmmakers to be reckoned with. The idea of making an iconic werewolf movie has inspired us into taking the next step in our careers and that’s where your support comes in.

Risks and challenges

WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP/MONEY
Bear in mind we've been making movies with little-to-no budgets our entire lives and know how to make every penny count. Your donation would be covering everything ranging from stage and equipment rentals(cameras, grip and lighting teams) to professional actors, permits, props, wardrobe and(most importantly) the practical make-up and digital FX house to create the werewolf.

The werewolf itself will be a professional actor in a full body suit and head/face piece(s) with digital FX added to lengthen the lower-face and jaws to make it appear more inhuman (see our concept art above). It's important to us that the werewolf is a physical presence on set and not just a digital creation for the film. Seeing an actual human being's eyes in the monster will make the fear more real to the audience and strengthen their connection with our characters in peril.

It is essential to really show our werewolf in the short. One of the more crucial ways we are going to sell this new take on the werewolf is to physically SHOW it. Not a whole lot, but definitely enough to feel like the creature is playing "hide and seek" with our characters. We picture the wolf lurking just off camera, building the tension until it finally BREAKS- Terrifying the audience with its horrific visage.

Dates for reward events such as screenings and set visits may change based on production scheduling. We will do our very best to stick to the dates specified with the rewards.
