THE FILM

The Mill at Calder's End is a gothic ghost story in the spirit of Edgar Allan Poe and H.P. Lovecraft that will be told with 30 inch tall bunraku puppets and old fashioned in-camera special effects.Featuring the voices of Jason Flemyng (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,X-Men:First Class) and horror legend Barbara Steele (Black Sunday,The Pit and the Pendulum) , this film celebrates two of my great loves: the art of puppetry and gothic horror.

From my experience working as a special effects artist in Hollywood for over twenty years and now collaborating with some of the most talented creature effects artists,concept artists, and puppeteers in the industry, The Mill at Calder's End will be unlike any puppet film you have ever seen before.

A FEW EARLY REVIEWS

"BREATHTAKING...AN INNOVATIVE AND ENGAGING USE OF PUPPETRY..." -Richard Taylor, Weta Workshop (The Hobbit, Lord of the Rings)

"CREEPY...FILLED WITH SOME REALLY COOL HORROR IMAGES... I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE THIS..." -Rick Baker, Special Make-Up Effects Artist, Winner of Seven Academy Awards

"HAUNTING AND ATMOSPHERIC...IT IS VERY RARE THESE DAYS THAT YOU SEE AN ORIGINAL STORYTELLING FORMAT, ESPECIALLY ONE THAT SUITS THE SUBJECT MATTER SO WELL..."  -Mike Mignola, Creator of HELLBOY, Contributing Artist for "The Mill at Calder's End"

THE TRAILER TO MY FIRST VICTORIAN GHOST STORY PUPPET FILM, THE AWARD-WINNING SHORT, "THE NARRATIVE OF VICTOR KARLOCH": 

BACKGROUND

The Mill at Calder's End is a passion project that is heavily influenced by the classic Hammer horror films of the 1960s and the films of Mario Bava (most notably, his gothic masterpiece Black Sunday). I have also always had a great love of puppetry and traditional in-camera special effects. The work of Jim Henson (The Dark Crystal, Labyrinth, and his Storyteller television series) is a great inspiration to me and I am hoping to bring his sense of wonderment and artistry to The Mill at Calder's End

In 2012, I was honored to work with Heather Henson (Jim's youngest daughter) on my first film. Heather produced The Narrative of Victor Karloch as one of the short films for her Handmade Puppet Dreams Film Series and was a guiding force in helping me create the haunted world of Victor Karloch. 

The Mill at Calder's End is a gothic tale that will be told with the traditional Japanese theater puppetry technique known as bunraku. Each puppet figure is controlled by three (or more) puppeteers dressed in black and hidden behind each character. It is my goal to make a film that celebrates practical effects and therefore there will be almost no computer generated imagery in the final film. In my first film, The Narrative of Victor Karloch, I utilized several silent film era camera techniques, such as a shot of a miniature ship on a stormswept ocean (which, in fact, was made up of painted flowing garbage bags). I plan to continue to use many more of these techniques to give a hand crafted look to The Mill at Calder's End.

INTERNATIONAL FUNDING/SHIPPING 

According to Kickstarter's help page (http://www.kickstarter.com/help/faq/backers#Pled),  "Anyone, anywhere (with a major credit card) can pledge to Kickstarter projects."

If you live in a country where you, for whatever reason, cannot donate directly to Kickstarter the current best option is to buy a prepaid amazon cash card and use that for your donation. You must apparently add $1 more than the prize amount to make sure the donation goes through. This thread (thanks to Double Fine), offers the most comprehensive guide on how to do this.

We will ship internationally. Please see the details on each level for additional payment for international shipping.

Will the DVDs and Blu-rays be Region Free?

Yes, the DVD will be region-free, and the Blu-ray will be all-region, so they'll play anywhere in the world; however, the DVD will be NTSC only.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

THE MILL AT CALDER'S END will definitely be a challenging filmmaking experience. Every frame of this film is essentially an effects shot. The "actors" of this film are the sculpted puppet characters that are controlled by three puppeteers dressed in black (or green screen) behind each puppet. Therefore, one of the single greatest challenges is how to film the puppets and hide the puppeteers from camera. There will definitely be a number of shots that will require "rotoscoping" ( digitally erasing puppeteers from the shot, frame by frame). In addition, every element of the puppet world - wardrobe, props, and sets - must be custom built for the film.

In terms of production scheduling, "Calder's End" should be completed within a 10 month time frame.The shooting schedule could possibly be delayed if puppeteers and/or technical crew members are unavailable on shoot days due to better paying jobs or out of town work and would therefore force us to reschedule. But the ultimate goal is to start shooting this summer and reach post production in the fall/early winter.

How will the Kickstarter money be spent?

Here is a short breakdown of the budget:
$8K to $10K - Puppet Construction,Costuming,Sets,and Props
$10K to $12K - Camera/Lighting/Stage Rental/ Crew
$10K - Post Production (Sound Mixing/Digital Compositing/Color Correction)

Once the Kickstarter goal of $32K is surpassed, a new "stretch goal" will be set. With additional funding, THE MILL AT CALDER'S END will become an even more extraordinary work of puppetry art. The new budget will allow for more intricate in-camera effects, higher quality cameras and lenses, and an enhanced sound mix.
