David Sandberg joins the team of BLOOD MACHINES!

Dear BLOOD MACHINES backers,

We have a EXCITING news to share with you all before Christmas!!

David Sandberg, the Swedish director behind the acclaimed short film KUNG FURY, has decided to come aboard as an executive producer on Seth Ickerman's BLOOD MACHINES!

Seduced by the world of BLOOD MACHINES, David reached out to Seth Ickerman in the early days of the campaign. As we all share the same do it yourself approach and passion for the 80's movies, a collaboration soon appears to be a logical move for all of us.

To announce this news, David recently shared this wonderful quote with our team: “Seth Ickerman are hands down some of the most talented and exciting visual artists I’ve come across. Each of their frames are gorgeous, show a painstaking attention to detail, and most of all, an undeniable love for movies. I can’t wait to see these guys get their shot to tell this story ”.

As you know synthwave music and retro films are labelled as fringe movements, which limit the traditional sources of financing, that's why David and Seth decided to “cross the streams” to make such an ambitious project happen.

A few words of Seth Ickerman about David's attachment: “Bringing David on board is a natural association for us after ten years in our garage. He went through the same process and what he did on Kickstarter with Kung Fury and later on with the distribution is a true reference for us in terms of maintaining the creative control of his film, while reaching out to a world audience and bridging the garage and professional mindsets. We are really happy that he's joining our team in this exciting adventure!”.

After raising $630,000 on Kickstarter with Kung Fury, which premiered in Cannes Film Festival and was later released on Netflix, Sandberg will be bringing his experience to our production team composed of Frederic Fiore and Alexis Perrin.

Their company Logical Pictures is currently co-producing An Incident in A Ghost Land by Pascal Laugier (Martyrs, The Tall Man), and has several promising films lined up for the coming years – including ICKERMAN, the first feature film of Seth Ickerman.

We hope you like this exciting news. Wishing you all a MERRY CHRISTMAS & HAPPY HOLIDAYS! And please don't hesitate to spread the word on social media.

Kind regards,

The BLOOD MACHINES Team

      Pretty Epic news there guys.

      It was actually David's post that pointed me in your direction. I really do hope you get to hit your big target as I honestly believe that your movie could blow some of the mainstream stuff out of the water!. 2017 is going to be a crazy year for movies and seeing yours pop out with Sci-Fi's such as BladeRunner2049 and Prometheus:Covenant would just make my year complete!

      Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas to you guys.

      Anything really interesting is labelled a fringe movement.

      That's awesome news, this is going to be one of the best, if not the best 80's films ever.
