We are seeking funding for our short film entitled "Sobrevivo," a post-apocalyptic zombie thriller about survival in its truest form.
Sobrevivo chronicles the struggles of a woman in a post-apocalyptic world in which she must overcome her fears in order to survive. Initially "holed up" in an abandoned prop house with her boyfriend Conrad, April is surrounded by items that used to be relevant to her previous life, but now serve as a museum of her past. When their safe-haven is compromised, the two must flee and search for a new place to call "home." The world that April had since become comfortable with is once again broken and she must start anew.
After nearly losing her fight for survival, April is saved and taken in by a trio of strangers whose intentions are questionable. While the world outside of her new home is perilous, she begins to recognize that the dangers existing inside may prove to be deadlier and even more sinister.
How Will the Money Be Used?
Funding for this film will be used to cast the film and pay professional actors. Additionally, to achieve the highest production quality possible, we will need to rent equipment including lighting, lenses, and props. Location fees will be required as well as food and transportation costs. There will also need to be several crew members hired:
Director of Photography
Digital Effects Supervisor
Make-up and SPFX Artist(s)
A Note from the Producers -
We sincerely hope that you will consider contributing to our film. It is our goal as independent filmmakers to produce the best possible adaptation of this fantastic story. Both of us will be creating this film without pay of any kind. All money raised will be used towards paying actors, crew, rentals, post production, and distribution. Our goal is to send this film to as many festivals as possible including Sundance, SXSW, Cannes, Berlin, and Toronto. Additional funding will be put forth by us, the producers. We really believe in this project and we are so excited to make this happen.
With your generous support, we can carry out our artistic vision and make a film that is smart, striking and pushes the envelope of the horror/thriller genre. So thank you in advance for taking the time to read this and for believing in our work!

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
There are many obstacles to overcome in the making of this film:
1) Shooting a low-budget film that looks high-budget
2) Casting great actors for the story's complex characters
3) Being able to achieve high quality make-up and special FX needs
4) Creating a believable world through the implementation of creative production design
5) Lighting the film in order to sell the fact that there is no electricity in the world where the story takes place
Without the Kickstarter funding, these feats may seem impossible. However, our experience on various short films and professional productions have provided us with creative measures for accomplishing high-end production value. We are innovative filmmakers who are excited by the filmmaking process. But without the proposed budget, it will be very difficult to make this film succinct to our vision.
