About this project

Hello. I am Jill Sixx Gevargizian and I am asking for your help in making my first short film...a HORROR film, of course!

CALL GIRL is about a lonely man who plans to share his first experience with a 'lady of the night' via webcam. It is a sickening tale that reminds us that there is no refuge behind the computer screen. It will frighten. It will shock. Some people like to watch...Do you?

How did I get here?

I have been a fan of film and all things scary since I was a child. In junior high, I remade my favorite slasher films with my dad's VHS camera. When Scream came out in 1996, I formally decided that I was going to be a horror "expert" when I grew up. I obsessively visited the video store every weekend to dig through the rarest horror movies I could find. A decade-and-a-half later, I my infatuation with horror has only grown

In May 2012, after attending my first big horror convention, I was inspired by the amazing filmmakers creating horror films independently. I wanted to create a platform for these filmmakers, so I started an independent horror film showcase, Slaughter Movie House, which screens new independent horror flicks every month. The more time I spent with the films, the more I became inspired to create my own film...something a little more than my junior high VHS remakes.

How can you help?

I have spent many, many hours developing this film. We have a script (by Eric Havens); we have a crew; we have an amazing cast, including Lawrence Harvey (Human Centipede 2) and Tristan Risk (American Mary). What we don't have is the funding for the next steps. Creating a film -- even a short one such as Call Girl -- is an expensive endeavor. Effects and makeup, locations, additional crew expenses, equipment, post-production, and DVD creation costs add up very quickly. Your pledges will be directly applied to these costs so that I can complete the filming of Call Girl. After the completion of the film, I will be submitting it to film festivals all over the world. I would love it if you are part of this!

What if I don't reach my goal?

If I don't reach the goal amount $$$, I get NOTHING. NADA. ZIP. ZILCH!!!

I really need your help in reaching my goal. YOU quite literally can help my childhood dream of making a horror film come true!!!

Thank YOU!!!

The special part about Kickstarter is that YOU get to be part of this project with me. It is really exciting that I get to share this experience with my friends, family, and other people as in love with horror as I am! CALL GIRL is now in your hands. So jump on in. It's going to be a wild ride!

Risks and challenges

A film is many different talents in one piece of art. It is a challenge in itself to find each talent, and to be able to rely on them. I am incredibly fortunate to have a very serious, experienced, and enthusiastic cast and crew to see this project through to the end. My goal is to enter this film into as many festivals as I can afford, to show the world what I am capable of, and to continue making movies.
