The Ocean Black
A thumping, character driven piece set within a zombie riddled world, that strives to prop up the once entertaining-now middling genre.

It’s been a week since Amber, Don and their young son Aaron barricaded themselves into their apartment. Seven days of family meals and board games while outside an epidemic has turned humanity against itself. Just the dead, roaming with their violent hunger, remain.
Now, as the family’s food goes scarce, they must venture outside to survive. The new dangers strike quick. A pack of undead nearly overwhelm them, killing Aaron in the attack. Destroyed without their son, and with no home to return to, the couple begin a journey towards a distant coastal town. It’s while traveling through these graveyard cities that a new nightmare emerges.
A perverse sense of survival turns Don into a monster, and Amber must find the strength to be truly alone.
What is Kickstarter?
Kickstarter is an online fundraising tool focused on creative projects. The goal of this campaign is to raise $100,000 to begin production on our feature film. We hope to start shooting in North Carolina this summer.
- If you decide to help, you pledge whatever you want in exchange for rewards (for example, a DVD of the film when it's done, your name in the credits, appear as an extra...the list goes on!)
- The more you pledge, the better the rewards. Take a look at the column on the right to see what's available.
- If we make the goal by the deadline, your credit card is charged what you pledged (but not until then).
- If we don't make the goal by the deadline your credit card is not charged and we don't get to make the movie.
Where Does the Money Go?
Every penny goes directly towards production and contributor rewards. Our budget covers everything from production insurance to location fees, from cast and crew wages to equipment rentals, from the props and costumes and makeup to sound design and post—everything.
Spreading the Word
You can also help us by letting anyone who might like our film know that we’re out here. Tweet us, share us, like us on Facebook—any extra exposure we get helps us find people who can contribute to our project.
