About MALICE: Emergence

MALICE follows the adventures of Alice Turner and her family's supernatural encounters with the strange being that inhabits the landscape beneath her town. This season finds Alice in the summer before she heads off to college. But before she can escape into a normal academic life, she attracts the attention of a nefarious organization that is obsessed with "the girl who blows things up" and her strange relationship with "the thing in the earth." She and her family become persecuted by overwhelming forces. Alice is captured, drugged, and interrogated, inducing wild flights of fantasy that take her down the darkest "rabbit hole" where she grapples with her destiny. It's a journey that will change the course of her life forever.

MALICE has been in production off and on for the past five years. Originally produced as a YouTube based webseries, it has been featured on many platforms and currently can be seen Amazon Prime, ITunes and most recently HULU.

In our debut year, The Writers Guild of America, West, hot-listed MALICE on their Guide to the Web’s Most Cutting Edge New Media Content.


The Filmmakers:

We're a small group of independent filmmakers who love making movies and have been at it for over two decades. It's our full-time job, and every film we have made has received worldwide distribution. We do pretty much everything ourselves, from conception to financing to production to securing distribution.

What we need the money for:

Making films is always an expensive endeavor, especially when there are visual effects. We manage to produce through ingenuity, begging, borrowing, and good old guerrilla film production. But still we need help offsetting some of those costs so we can finish this show before our cast scatters to the four winds. All the money goes to basic necessities like props, costumes, and food for the cast and crew. As you can imagine $5,000 doesn't go very far but it really really helps immensely on this scale.

Alice's wild dream.
Alice's wild dream.

 

Why are we asking for so little?

Honestly, we're worried we won’t even make this goal. Building a fan base without a marketing budget is very difficult but we keep persevering. We are "the Little Engine that could" and just simply won't give up. We know MALICE is a great show. Just watch it; it outshines most web series with far greater budgets. But our audience is still small, so a larger goal (closer to more sensible budgets of $50,000 and up) is probably just unrealistic. We love this story too much to let it fade away half-told, but without at least some funding, we will not be able to produce MALICE: Emergence. Sadly, it’s that simple.

Don't leave Alice’s story untold. She needs your help. If we are successful in fundraising we plan to start shooting this August.

Thanks for your support!

Risks and challenges

Being David Against Goliath

Web series are an exciting new medium and a great opportunity to provide proof-of-concept for a story or show. They have blossomed in the past few years, but most storytellers are still searching for ways to make a living in the medium. However that conundrum is solved in the future, though, you can be sure that just as with all the old mediums, compelling storytelling will be the key.

If you’ve watched many web shows, you know that very few are as tightly-told, briskly-paced, and riveting as MALICE—even with our tiny budget. Frankly, MALICE sells itself. It’s finding its way and growing an audience in a media-saturated world where competition for attention is fierce and tangible profits continue to prove elusive.

Your faith in our “little engine” is appreciated, and will not be misplaced. You, and growing numbers of others, want to know what happens to Alice and her family. Alice’s journey is just beginning, and when we’re done, Alice from MALICE will be an iconic character for a generation. But only with your help.
