Welcome to my retrofuture universe made up of intriguing architecture, beautiful humans, and exquisite aliens. For the last 3 years, I have been creating a highly thematic photo series called "Invasion," and I'm now in the home stretch. I have funded the first half of the series with my own resources, but I want these last few shots to be EPIC. That's where I need your help. 

There are about 10 photos needed to complete the series. Without giving everything away, here's a glimpse of what those final photos will include:

• Gorgeous women frozen in time as they are enveloped by mysterious lights from above

• A stylish mad scientist and his older female assistant overlooking a wicked creation in his laboratory

• A diner where the patrons have all been poisoned by a green ooze

Your money will help secure some high quality vintage costumes, props, masks, vintage cars, wigs, makeup, locations, extra lights and fans, makeup artists, models and also help with the cost associated with the gallery show!

Once everything is complete, I will be publishing a book of the photos, offering prints for sale, and having a full scale gallery show in Los Angeles, CA.  It's tentatively slated for summer 2014, and you're all invited! HIGH FIVE!!

Your help won't go unnoticed! I've come up with some really great incentives. A high quality book of the entire series, magnets, prints of all shapes and sizes, 1-on-1 photoshop time and more! All incentives include free shipping within the US. Check out the pictures below and detailed descriptions on the right!

Risks and challenges

I am so excited for this project to be so close to it's World Premiere! With your help it's going to be a Super Sci-fi Extravaganza! I've got the last ten shots planned out already and with my dedicated team… we'll knock these out of the park!
