We need your help to make our film DEAD SHACK the best that it can be!

The movie is fully financed, but could use extra funds to compliment our existing compositing and visual effects budgets. 

We're aiming to raise a minimum of 12 000$, but are hoping to raise as much as possible (the bigger the budget, the more special the effects!)

To give you an idea of what the final film will look like, please enjoy the development/proof of concept trailer we produced a few years ago to help finance the feature. Please note that the film has been recast since. Shooting begins on November 28th. 

---------    ABOUT DEAD SHACK   --------

"On a weekend getaway at a rundown cabin in the woods, Jason, a cautious teen, his crude best friend Colin and his fearless older sister Summer are forced to work together, grow up and save their hard partying parents from their predatory neighbour intent on feeding them all to her undead family".

DEAD SHACK is a Horror/Comedy feature film inspired by 80’s horror films. Our story centres around the following cast of characters:

JASON, an awkward but funny 14 year old who goes to a cabin in the woods one weekend with his best friend and his best friend's family. (ACTOR CAST OLDER THAN THE ONE FEATURED BELOW).

COLIN, a 14 year old crude motormouth and JASON's best friend. (ACTOR CAST OLDER THAN THE ONE FEATURED BELOW).

SUMMER, a 16 year old tom boy and smartest of the bunch who happens to be COLIN's older sister. (ACTOR CAST OLDER THAN THE ONE FEATURED BELOW).

ROGER, a laid-back dad who happens to have had two accidents in the past that he loves very much: COLIN and SUMMER. (ACTOR CAST NOT ACTUALLY A CARTOON).

THE NEIGHBOUR, a calculating and manipulative predator who uses her undead family as bloodhounds to stalk her victims. 

Filled with gory action, bad-ass weapons, and terrifying undead, DEAD SHACK is a dark comedy oozing with bloody horror. 

--------- GOALS --------

Below, we have goals that show what we can do with the money you'll help us raise. (Note that the added 2000$ is because the shipping cost is counted in the kickstarter pledge and cannot be used to fund the film)

12 000$ - Bare minimum VFX and compositing shots to make the movie look GOOD!

22 000$ - More VFX and compositing shots to make the movie look BETTER!

32 000$ - Even more VFX and compositing shots to make the movie look GREAT!

42 000$ - Almost every VFX and compositing shot we need to make the movie look AMAZING!

52 000$ - Every single VFX and compositing shot we need to make the movie look EVEN MORE AMAZING!

We have a bunch of prizes to offer for your support. We hope you find something you like and thank you for your time and consideration to help us  make DEAD SHACK the best movie it can be!
