McCoy's Monster Murder Movie is layered with a stylized look, cast, and creatures.

I need your help to make McCoy's Monster Murder Movie a reality. The goal is set for $50,000.00. This goal must be met or go higher, or the project will not fund. So it's an all or nothing deal!

So I am asking you to take a chance with me a be a part of something special. I have worked in the movie industry for over a decade helping to make other peoples movies, yet in many ways I still feel like an outsider in the movie industry.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

1. BIGGEST CHALLENGE - My primary challenge for this feature film is getting the entire film finished for this budget. While fifty thousand dollars sounds like a lot, for a feature film budget it is a drop in the bucket.

By utilizing a stage theater and stage lights for my primary location this cuts down on costs considerably. Also, relying on an actual built set and practical creature effects rather than green screen and digital creatures will save tremendously on cost, and it will look cooler! This film is character driven playing to each actors strengths, so sit back and enjoy the show!

FAQ

  • The story struck me like a lightning bolt one night late in March 2013. I often crave a good monster movie, and I had recently signed up for some online San Winston studio classes on how to make monsters. Also, over the last few years I have developed a passion for puppets because of some wonderful classes I had taken out at Puppet School in Burbank... so there I was thinking about puppets, and people, and creatures OH MY! The Ah Ha moment hit me, I can meld them all together into a crazy campy creature feature! To write the entire script it took me about three months, and at the same time I was setting up video and photo shoots with the actors I had in mind for many of the roles to build up the promotional material.
