About this project

About Lunacy

Lunacy centers around two people and one mysterious night of full moon. Al, a very disturbed individual, lures Jamie in for an ambush. Unfortunately for Al, Jamie isn’t the only one who should be worried about surviving this heinous night.

"Does moon really trigger strange human behavior?" Lunacy takes this common notion, and adds a "supernatural" twist to it. 

WARNING: Lunacy may be inappropriate for some audiences.

As filmmakers, we always intend to stay true to the genre, especially when it comes to horror films.  No holds barred. No playing safe. Lunacy is a gruesome film, that will take you to the darkest and the most disturbing places of all. 

Why full moon?

“It must be a full moon”, the universally accepted phrase for crazy happenings. The moon holds a mystical place in the history of human culture. There have been numerous speculations, dozens of myths from werewolves to induced lunacy. Studies have been conducted to deduce a connection between the moon and it’s effects on human biology. Lunacy exploits these superstitions/speculations for one very simple reason. It makes for a great horror story. We don’t intend to take sides, or make speculations. Our motive is simple; to entertain our viewers with possibly the most twisted and unexpected take on this overly chewed up subject matter. You ought to see it to believe it!!!

What can you expect from Lunacy?

Production Team

We are the team that brought you Dark Room (2012). Dark Room premiered at Bryn Mawr Film Institute in early 2012, and is currently on it's festival run. Check out the teaser for it below.

Rony Patel (producer) has produced more then a few short horror films in his career so far including Dark Room. His unmatched production skills, and his experience in the horror genre makes him the right person for this job.

Exclusive 'behind the scenes' from Dark Room (2012)

With Low-Budget comes more creativity. Enter Prachi Patel, the co-owner of Fairwolf Films LLC. Prachi's responsibilities include doing anything/everything necessary to get Lunacy funded. Prachi is our associate producer. Her experience in films ranges from being a Lead actress in short films to being a Production Manager on shorts & features.

Joey Dicamillo III is the newest addition to the team. Joey is a graduate of Pennsylvania State University BFA program, and an independent producer/director based out of Philadelphia Pa. Joey will be assisting our team with managing/supervising the production.

Why do we need the money?

We need the money so that we can do justice to this great project. For starters, we need the money to meet our extravagant sfx needs, pay rental fees on all our high-end equipment, feed our cast & crew on the set and more.

About half of our budget has been recovered already from variety of different sources. We come to you for the other half. Your money will literally allow us to go that extra mile and turn this raw concept into a complete film.

FINAL WORDS

A notoriously twisted concept, a solid cast, dedicated crew, an aspiring director and a great location. We couldn't be more prepared. ALL WE NEED NOW IS YOUR SUPPORT.

We assume most of you know how Kick-starter works. If we don't recover the full amount pledged i.e $3000 then we don't get anything. So, please donate and make sure you let your friends and family know about our project as well. If not donate, then at least help us spread the word. Our team has worked really really hard to put this all together. A little bit of support from our audience will put us right where we deserve to be. CHEERS ALL & HAPPY LUNACY...

Risks and challenges

Our biggest challenge would be having to work with the steep budget and not compromise on the blood&gore aspect of the film. Above is an example of what we can do with almost no budget. Don't worry, this film is in the right hands. Pun intended :->
