About this project

Remember movie serials? No?!?!

Ok, so it's been 60 years since we've had them - back then, they would play before the movie's main feature.  Flash Gordon. Buck Rogers. Radar Men from the Moon. Over-the-top action, men in plastic sci-fi suits, low budget cheesy effects, questionable writing, helpless heroines, and a lot of popcorn.

I want to bring it it back.

The $1,675 goes to shooting the first episode, in glorious B&W!  Most of the logistical costs have been paid for, but the extra will cover food for the cast/crew, costumes, and other incidentals during the "run & gun" 4 day shoot. (Pointless trivia, most serial episodes were shot in 1-3 days)

This 12 minute masterpiece will air at the local theater, and we'll transfer it to a DVD. 

Can't donate but want to help? Supercool, just shoot an email for more info.

Oh what's it about? Rubber monster suit, women in 1950's bikini's, and the mother of all cliff-hangers.  I think you've been told all you need to know. ;)
