Update: Stretch Goals! Additional funds will go to upping the production value and post-production.
Doll House is a 30 minute horror/slasher film that will be submitted to film festivals, and to act as a proof of a concept of a full length feature film.
Doll House came together when Sheri Collins came to Alan Dillingham with an idea for a film. He did not find it hard to write a screenplay as he was itching to do another slasher film after doing Cat and Mouse.
Check out the promo video which was made before we brought on a professional Director of Photography or Gaffer.
Synopsis: A woman seeks a family to call her own after losing hers to a brutal murder, one that will love her and never leave her. While out looking for a new family, she stumbles upon the perfect household having a game night. As she makes her intentions known, the family quickly realizes that she is there to capture their hearts and love them to death.

WE NEED YOUR HELP!
Our biggest obstacle is having the proper amount of capital to get the supplies that we need to tell the story
Please check out the incentives and awards. Consider donating even if a little. Liking and Sharing the campaign will go a long ways as social networking as a vital part of raising funds in the independent film world.
Where will the money go to?
Our financial needs come down to three parts.
$700, Will go to the Art Dept for basic needs such as props, makeup, and basic effects. Ideally we want $3,500 for the most gruesome effects. We will need lot's of custom made special effects so that we do not need to use CGI. Some examples of needs: Carpets, Bed, Door with glass, dual costumes. These will be bought so that we can safely use a mass amount of blood. Headed by the very talented Lincoln Millet
$1,000 Will go to the Camera/Electrical dept to ensure that we have the proper equipment that we need to make this film's vision come to life. Which will be headed up by our DP Mark Hensley.
$600 Will go towards feeding our cast and crew, three meals for the four days of filming.
Ideally we are looking to raise at least $8,000 for the best possible short film, for all of it's bloody and gruesome wants.
We want to raise over $20,000 for the full length film.
What do you get?
Check out the incentives and awards. We have some cool stuff.
