After a long period of preproduction and planning, and an original successful Kickstarter campaign, Reunion's principal photography wrapped on October 25th, 2011.
Starring Brian Sutherland (soon appearing on an episode of NBC's Grimm), Jesse Lee Keeter, and Alison Monda, Reunion is now in post-production. You can learn more about Reunion at director Jeremy David Bell's blog: http://reuniondirectorsnotebook.blogspot.com/.
This campaign is to raise finishing funds that will be used toward sound design. Many people may not realize that all of those sounds in movies -- footsteps, creaky floorboards, wind in the trees -- are added after the movie has been edited. Matt Ralston is editing the picture now and making amazing progress. Our tentative plan is to finish the film in time to submit to the amazing genre film festival, Fantastic Fest (http://fantasticfest.com/), in Austin, Texas. The submission dates for that festival are May 9th (regular deadline) or June 6th (late deadline).
That's our timeline and it's why we need your help. Being a micro-budget horror film, we need help putting in all those creepy sounds that will help build an atmosphere of dread.
Enjoy our teaser trailer (embedded above) and take a look at the right side of this page. There you will see the rewards we are offering for this campaign -- everything from a video threat from our killer (what a gift!) or an original Razorback mask worn in the movie.
Thanks for looking!
