The Project

The Dreadful Mind is an approximately 34 page Horror themed paper back PhotoBook that features madness, demonology, and voodoo. For the past three months I've been planning the PhotoBook, and last month had the exciting opportunity to shoot it. I'm running this campaign to raise the funds necessary to take this PhotoBook to the printer. My objective for this PhotoBook is to share it with Horror fans and collectors. 

The project is mostly complete. The photography is over. The editing is finished. I just need the money to get it into the hands of those who want it.

The Concepts

  • The Aristocrat

With the Aristocrat I wanted to embody madness. Wearing a black mask, the beautiful socialite hides herself away from the rest of the world. In the seclusion of her estate, she finds love with a lowly commoner. However, the Aristocrat is not someone who can simply love...

  •  The Demonologist

Reading forbidden texts, the Demonologist unlocks a hidden and dark presence within her soul. She is overtaken by it, seduced by it, and ultimately consumed by it. Succumbing to the darker side of herself, she welcomes this damned state of being.

  • Voodoo Priestess

Drawing upon the supernatural, the Voodoo Priestess attracts those who desire power. She becomes a guiding force in the darkest corners of humanity. Her enthralled followers do her bidding without question; yet she has contempt for those weak minded enough to follow. 

The Production

Production on The Dreadful Mind took place over several months as I developed the concept into a tangible project. In December, the PhotoBook was shot over several days involving: five models; a producer; two makeup artists; a production assistant; and photographer.

Since the shoot wrapped up, I've been busy processing the images and editing. As a Horror enthusiast, it is great to see a project like this come together. It is my hope that this book finds its way into many collectors hands.

Where the Money is Going

The money raised for this campaign will be used to print the initial run of the PhotoBook, cover the cost of the first showing of the PhotoBook at a Horror convention, and to cover the cost of the prints offered in this campaign. 

Next Horror PhotoBook...Psychotic Killers 

With a successful campaign for the first PhotoBook, I would love to work on a second volume based on psychotic killers. The following is a sample of my work that has inspired this theme. Without the support of Horror enthusiasts such as yourself, this will not be possible.  

Risks and challenges

The PhotoBook is already complete. I just need the money to produce printed copies for distribution and a launch party at a horror convention. Dealing with the printer could be a challenge considering proofs and shipping delays. I don't expect any delays, but one never knows.

The risks and challenges to get the PhotoBook ready for print have already been met. I didn't choose this project for financial gain, but out of passion for my love of Horror. For this reason, it is important for me to see this project come to fruition.
