About

THE SHADOW HUNTERS: RISE OF LYLITH

The Shadow Hunters: The Rise of Lylith is based from the "Shadow Hunters" comic book series created by Jason Dube of Scattered Comics. The comic has 3 issues that have been released out and continues each year. The comic also has a cosplay contest each year in which it has fans submit pictures of themselves dressed as their favorite characters. First place winners get to be on the cover of the variant issue that is being released.

Film Synopsis: There's an infestation in our city. Three supernatural girls try to solve the mystery to what is causing the Feeder outbreak. During the discovery of their own club being infested they bump into Simon. The 00's loyal soldier who also discovers with Firewire there is a new monster in town. Can the Feeder outbreak be stopped? Only two enemies can come together to fight a new one. Lyltih the Queen of Hell has risen to take over the world of humans and monsters. The girls and the 00 battle to stop the evil Lylith before her wish comes true.

The Shadow Hunters movie is based off these comics and characters creation by Jason Dube. This is where I come in. After meeting Jason about 4 years ago he presented me with the idea of making a film out of the Shadow Hunters Comics. Now you know how hard it can be to translate the idea of a comic series into a visual version in film. I spent many hours, days, and nights thinking about the creation of the project. After all the hard work of story boarding, visual design, lighting, camera, and the production look I was happy to say I know exactly what could be done and how I wanted to do it. I decided that I could make this film with a indie budget with all the resources and great people I could gather to work with me.

 I was very close to shooting a big teaser trailer to use as a promotion to gain big money men, but then I thought why waste 10 grand on a trailer when we could use those resources and ask for help from the community to make a really awesome indie film and prove we could do it. I can make this film for 40 grand and that includes awesome action scenes, great make up effects, and a very high visual look. I wanted to shoot Super 16mm Anamorphic but it would be to tight on this budget, but if we pass the goal and hit 60 grand I'll be able to shoot it on film. Right now we are using Arri Alexia for the 40 grand budget.

Let's talk about the film. The film is about three girls who manage to fight the same evil which they are considered. Jessika(Werewolf), Jenna(Vampire), and Renea(Witch) are supernatural but are the best of friends fighting together.

Then we have the 00, a secret government that fights supernatural beings. In the 00 we have Madame Sushi the 00 leader. Simon the 00 soldier. Eileen the 00 monster tamer. Samuel the 00 main doctor.

Then we have the real evil of evil Lylith and her Feeder army lead by General Lust. To top it off we also have some special monsters that will make some appearances.

The film takes place in a more dystopian gritty city feeling. The plot of this film is about how a old evil has risen and needs to be stopped before it spreads and causes all to be enslaved by the evil of Lylith. Besides the main characters there is also a lot of other characters in the 00 and the secret supernatural world plotting and scheming. I don't want to ruin to much but we have some really awesome monster moments that will be very exciting. Action packed scenes with Girls kicking butt and monsters fighting.

We're asking for you help to make this a community project that can be made very well on a indie budget.

The film if the goal is reached will take us 3 months pre-production to get everything ready and we can shoot in 14 days with hope we can obtain 18 to 24 days if we pass our goal. It helps to have the extra few days. I would like to have the film shot early next year and edited for next Halloween 2016. The good news is we don't have to spend a cent on post production editing, just a sound edit investment which saves a lot of money for the project. I also want to let you know we have a lot of props that will be used in the film which helps cut down some cost.

Plus if you donate we want to keep you in the loop with our secret 00 videos which will be behind the scenes videos of interviews, set work, and many other unique ideas. You will be able to view those videos with a secret password during shooting so you can feel like your on set and more part of the production. This I feel is much more fun and it also makes it more interesting for people that donate. We're trying to be different. Selling poster's, t shirts, and the same stuff is boring, we want you to be part of the project.

Now some may ask who is going to act in this. Well this is what I have to say, I have a great cast lined up for this and I didn't want to list people who fans would love and then our shooting dates once lock conflict with their booking schedules. We have a good idea when we can shoot this and have the people we want. I just don't want to make a promise and that actor has to drop out cause of conflict of another job so we have secondary choice back ups. All the info will be posted during pre production so all who donated can see and also special videos will be made just like I spoke about above. Your with us from pre-production till release of the final product.

Now since I'm making the film it's going to be a little different from the comic. If your a fan of the comic then you might enjoy the surprise the film will have.

Here is some story board concepts we have so you can see this has been mapped out to perfection.  This is just a sample.

 Now about the donation perks. I have listed the items you will receive, but good news we will be adding more perks during the campaign and some of the actors or actresses that we announce during the campaign will be giving items for special donation. Stay tuned and keep watch for updates.

Risks and challenges

To make sure that we don't run into any problems if we get funded we have spent the last year planning this. That's why we didn't want to list some of the actors just in case they have a schedule conflict on locked dates.

If we get funded we move ahead in pre-production and shoot. No delays, no issues, no problems. We make the film for our fans and for our donors.
