 KICKSTARTER IS ALL OR NOTHING!!!! WE NEED TO ACHIEVE OUR FULL FUNDING GOAL OF $55,000 OR THIS FILM WILL NOT RECEIVE ONE PENNY FROM THIS CAMPAIGN!!!

 Our story all takes place over one night on a farmhouse in a small town in the mountains. A mysterious, bright burst of light explodes from inside the barn, knocking out the power. The drunken gathering going on in the main house comes to an abrupt halt. There is a creature they will discover in the barn. Something they do not understand. And as always, when the beliefs of the weak and fearful are threatened, they turn on each other...

CHECK OUT THE OFFICIAL BEING TEASER!   

BEING is an edgy and one-of-a-kind film that transcends the typical horror genre. This truly unique story provokes an unnerving reflection of human behavior and the tragic violence of mankind that has, and continues to occur when someone, or something threatens their individual systems of belief. It thematically and metaphorically raises the difficult questions of our collective consciousness towards authority, tradition, and religion... rather than free thought and reason. BEING will leave you on the edge of your seat as it shakes the convictions of what you believe in.

BEING satisfies the insatiable and extremely loyal fans who just want to have some good old fashioned violent horror fun while also crossing over to reach a much wider audience with material that is as intelligent and complex as it is frightening. With a greater meaning in our underlying story than is typical in our genre and a compelling motivation behind the central characters, we knew we needed to include some of the most talented actors in the business. So we did just that!

FULL CAST AND CREW LISTED ON IMDB !!!!

Our team of exacting professionals has and continues to be passionately focused on every phase and element of production. Our script, locations, sets, cast, crew, and shooting schedule are all locked and ready to go. Preparation and complete attention to every detail is the key to a smooth and successful shoot!

Risks and challenges

As you can see from our development and promotional teaser we have already made great strides with this film. This is due to our extreme diligence in every stage of planning and surrounding ourselves with the absolute best talent, both in front of and behind the camera. Every single person involved in this project has brought their A-game expertise and are energized believers in both the project and the story. We have already faced some pretty daunting challenges (including a massive New England blizzard, backed up storm drains that threatened to shut down production during which one of our amazing leading actors provided a command performance while being sleep deprived for over 38 hours! etc, etc!). We overcame them all by focusing on the goal and utilizing the full talents and dedication of everyone involved. There will no doubt be additional challenges but we are confident that our team, backed with the support of our Kickstarter fans, will overcome them all.
