“Brew House” is a found-footage film (The Blair Witch Project, Paranormal Activity) that follows five urban explorers to their webshow’s next destination: an abandoned distillery. Primarily drawn by chronic decay and vandalization, the friends relay their love of local history to the camera but secretly harbor their own lust for internet fame.
The audience will live this story exclusively through our characters eyes, as the first shot opens at the “click record” of the action-cams on the characters’ headlamps. Released in Fall of 2014, GoPro brand evolved from the previous 1080p standard to 3840x2160 resolution. This will make “Brew House” the very first found-footage film to ever by shot in 4K.
It’s not long before the characters gather the exciting and seemingly dark history of the distillery-turned-art-studio. Slight bumps and shadows become too deliberate to ignore until the group finally comes upon someone still residing there… but not exactly living there.
$4000 is the minimum amount we need to fund the movie from pre-production through principal photography. $4,000 will cover the cost of five GoPro Hero 4 Blacks, batteries, and memory cards.
$6000 - We will be able to afford complete, professional urban exploration costumes for all 5 characters (respirators, head lamps, climbing harnesses, backpacks, etc).
$8000 - We will be able to afford better makeup & prosthetics, and we won't have to cut some of the special effects and art direction currently required by the script.
$10,000 - We will be able to afford better audio equipment, better off-camera lighting, and we can pay for our crew's transportation to and from set.
$10,000+ Any funds raised above this amount will go directly to our talented cast and crew, who are working very hard to make this film happen without compensation for their time.

Risks and challenges
We believe that the risks of making an independent film are clear to most people: production costs can be high, schedules can be difficult to shoot around, weather is unpredictable, and every movie encounters hurdles and overhead costs. The fact that we are aware of these issues and are prepared to deal with them is the first step toward overcoming them.
We are confident that you can see through the examples of our past work (presented in the video) that we are fully capable of bringing this project to fruition. Thank you in advance for helping us build our careers as filmmakers and for supporting independent film.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
