About

Prologue

23 years ago in a small city in the south of Mexico, strange disappearances were occurring, these victims were never found, those who were appeared dead in abandoned buildings in very gruesome ways. For some reason, the police avoided the situation and action was never taken, it was until 2 years later that the supposed group members responsible for these crimes were found dead by a river outside the city in an abandoned farm and the case was closed.

1 year ago, I was working for that same police department as Technical Support and, while giving maintenance to their computers, I found an archive of over 300 videos. Because of the quality of the videos they appeared to be really old (perhaps VHS or Super 8mm, I'm not sure) but they were digitized to keep them safely stored in one of the computers I was working on. I decided to take a look at a few of them and to my surprise… they were footage of those events from 23 years ago. Due to their nature it is obvious why the Police would never show them, however, if they had all this evidence in their possession the question is: Why the they never took action?

So I decided to make a copy in my external hard drive and take it home for a more in-depth analysis without the risk of getting caught, however, the more in look into these tapes, the more disturbing they get, the first videos seem rather… odd, they seem to be from the perspective of someone inside a house and other seemingly random places.

I'm gonna clean the videos up, remove the static, the noise and enhance the color as much as I can and upload a compilation on YouTube, perhaps with more people involved I might be able to solve this because, tbh... I can't do it myself and I don't know who to entrust with this information.

My only brother was one of the victims of this cult so there’s no way in I’m not doing anything for these people who fell victim to these heinous acts, they need closure and people need to know what happened, the police ignored it and forgot about it, I won’t.

About the Project

The project is quite simple, just a short film telling the story mentioned above, for years I've been a huge fan of horror and found footage and I've had this story in the back for my head for 3 years already and want to show it to you.

The film will be at most 1 hour and 30 minutes long but will be really immersive and engaging, I really want it to put you on edge and make you get as creeped and grossed out as possible.

The film will have both real life elements and places as well as a little CGI here and there to enhance the experience and make some things more effective since the funding won't be enough to use practical effects.

Goal

All of the funding will go towards the film, things like the video recording, going to locations, working on the few CGI bits, video editing as well as food and other expenses during the time of production.

I won't have full time actors either, most of the actors will be improvised from people I find on the spot and pay them to play along with my lines as well as a few willing-to-help friends.

The things I plan on getting are the following:

  • A small spy camera to record in HD more easily keeping my hands free as well as recording in places I shouldn't.
  • A powerbank to charge the camera and the old phone I will use to record the "old" footage.
  • A body bag to keep my stuff safe.
That's it lol.


Production TIme

The filming and production time will depend on many factors but my plan is to have the film out by January or February next year. It will definitely be faster if more funding is reached tho.


What You Get

You will have quite good benefits from this, not only will you have early access to the film and exclusive previews but also appear on the credits and have special mentions and cameos on film!

Risks and challenges

The risks are to take longer than expected to finish the film, there are many factors that might affect that, things like weather, my job as well as the potential risk with crimes in my city.

The challenge will be to keep everything on schedule and have the film ready by January or February as promised.
