About

Here's your chance to pre-order your own copy of Zombie Cats from Mars!

WHAT IS ZOMBIE CATS FROM MARS?

Zombie Cats from Mars is a campy spin on classic sci-fi horror. The story involves three households, each facing their own problems, who become the victims of a Zombie Cat invasion.  The central character, Billy, plays the film's hero. He aims to save his family, and the neighborhood from the Zombie Cats. Filming involved the use of live-action cats, as well as realistic puppet cats.

ZCFM stars cats provided by Furry Friends, a no-kill cat shelter and rehoming organization in Vancouver, WA. Let's meet the cats!

The great news is that Big Boy has been adopted. Nico has also been adopted, in fact, by our Makeup Artist Samantha Nylen. That's great news for the cats! In addition to helping find the amazing cats their furever homes, we are donating 50% of the first 3 screenings in the Southwest Washington area to Furry Friends. That's a lot of cat food!

WHO ARE WE?

We are movie-makers. We make movies because we love the art-form, and we love seeing stories come to life, but mostly because we love the collaboration. Let's meet some of the people involved in Zombie Cats from Mars:

MEET THE CREW.

MEET THE CAST.

WHY YOU SHOULD PRE-ORDER A DVD or BLU-RAY...

Making feature films is expensive. Luckily we are a resourceful bunch. We are not, however, wealthy. The producers have raised funds through their own financial input and a successful Kickstarter campaign in order to complete this movie. The crew was paid through the success of the last campaign, but we need more money... and here's where the money will be spent:

It's pretty simple really. The Producers are currently raising their own money to pay the cast. The success of this campaign will ensure that the cast is paid and the Producers are reimbursed for these payments. The rest of the money goes toward paying for screen time, primarily at the Hollywood Theater in Portland and various screens around Vancouver, WA as a fundraiser for Furry Friends and pressing DVDs and Blu-Rays. Additional money raised past the goal goes toward paying the Writer, Director/Editor, and Visual Effects Artist. They've been working for free this whole time, and would love to be reimbursed for their work. And, if things really catch fire, additional money will go towards supporting our next feature film Glare.

BUT... the real reason you should support this campaign is that YOU get a DVD or Blu-Ray of an insanely fun, campy, terrifying feature horror film that you and your family will enjoy over and over.

We hope you enjoy the video above. We know you'll enjoy the film, and please pre-order your very own copy of Zombie Cats from Mars. Oh, and tell your cat-loving friends! They'll love it too.

Lobster the Mouse is one of the animal actors in Zombie Cats from Mars, and she thinks she's the star of the movie. No one told her the movie is about cats, and not mice. Maybe the sequel?

Risks and challenges

Since the movie has been filmed, there's no worry that it won't get finished. Certain details are still being finished, but all of the hurdles of filmmaking have been crossed. As this campaign continues, we are finishing up with post-production visual effects, color correction, music, and foley.

A risk might be having to fulfill thousands and thousands of pre-sale orders. That would be a dream-come-true, really. But in case that happens, we have the capacity to fulfill as many orders come our way.

Cats might kill the producers. It's possible...
