About

First of all, thanks for taking the time to read this. We're all passionate about film making and couldn't be more excited about this project.

Taking a bite out of life...

   This project is the culmination of 3 people who having been working in Hollywood for over a decade making money for big film companies, not themselves. After years of trying to get ahead in Los Angeles, Justin Jones, Dante, and Rebekah Kochan wanted to venture off on their own and start making films THEY would be creating. In the past 6 months, both Dante's parents tragically passed away from cancer.

   This enormous life change prompted Dante and Rebekah to realize all you have is this moment, and there's no time like the present to follow your dreams. However, dreams take a lot of blood, sweat, and tears. 

New Beginnings 

  A few months ago Dante and Rebekah started the company GOLDEN ARTISTS ENTERTAINMENT LLC. They then talked to their good friend, producer Justin Jones about partnering up. Having worked on over 50 feature films between the 3 of them, they knew they could come up with a kick ass movie millions of people would love watching, as well as produce it with ease...they just need money to film it. This is where you come in. 

  Your Help

  When you donate, you're not just helping us make NUCLEAR ZOMBIES FROM AREA 51. The profits made off of this film are going to be used to make the next film and the next and so on. Your donation will be making this movie, future movies, and helping a small business get off the ground. You're also making our dreams come true and employing lots and lots of talented hard working people for years to come. 

Speaking the Truth

   Justin, Dante, and Rebekah are NOT novice film fans looking to make a quick buck making a movie. These are 3 highly experienced people in the entertainment industry who have been making successful films for other people's companies for many years. 

  We aren't going into this blindly. Before even beginning this endeavor we first went to our friend who is a film distributor and asked him what he needed. Luck was on our side when he told us "a zombie film would be great" and after reading the script Rebekah and Dante had written, he green-lit our project. This basically means, this film won't end up sitting on a shelf somewhere or only traveling the "film festival circuit". We know up front, this movie will be sold. It's the best possible position to be in going into production. 

The Plot Thickens...

  Personally, we want to make this the most entertaining zombie film of all time; not just for us, but for all the fans. 

   Our movie starts out on Halloween night in Area 51. Three robbers who are down on their luck decide to hold up a small diner in town, but things don't go according to plan. A military experiment on the Area 51 base goes horribly wrong killing most of the town and leaving the rest as zombies. At the exact same time, a group from the diner were being held at gun point in the walk in freezer, which saves them (luckily) from the light ray that turned the town dead. Now, this misfit group of strangers must survive the night fighting for their lives under the zombie attack. 

  This movie has every element a horror fan wants in a zombie film: beautiful people, terrifying effects, gratuitous gore, sex, guns, celebrities (including porn legend Ron Jeremy), laughs and of course, MOBS OF KILLER BRAIN EATING ZOMBIES!

 Stretch Goals

We need $80,000 to make this movie. But don't stop there! If we raise more money...

$100K - Epic Massive Zombie Finale. A horde of zombies and soldiers fighting them. Eat your heart out Walking Dead.

$120K - Explosions! You want explosions we'll give you explosions and a car crash to boot!

$140K - Helicopters. We'll get super sweet aerial helicopter shots and have a helicopter land in the movie when the military arrives to battle the zombies. Oh, and did we mention that Lorenzo Lamas is a friend and star of Bro, What Happened? Or that he is a real life helicopter pilot? Yep, he's a super badass. Maybe we can get him to be our stunt pilot!

$160K - Military vehicles and even more soldiers. We'll have an even more epic final battle at the end with Humvees and shoot at an actual military base. Plus with this kind of money we can hire even more great special effects make up artists!

$180K - Surprise Celebrity Guest Stars. When we meet this stretch goal we will be able to get some amazing horror icons to appear in the movie in major supporting roles.

$200K - Amazingly Cool VFX Shots and Songs you'll know in the movie. This stretch goal will allow us to augment the already dope ass zombie make up effects with visual effect enhancements and we can license some music tracks that everyone will recognize.

Over $250k.... the sky is pretty much the limit. Believe it or not, today with all of our technology, you can make a $250k film look like a multi-million dollar movie.

Risks and challenges

Luckily, these three producers (Justin Jones, Dante, and Rebekah Kochan) have been working on films successfully together for years. They have a great working relationship not only with each other, but crew and actors who request to work with them time and time again.
Film making isn't easy, neither is starting your own business. We know this. However, we also each know from over a decade's experience of working in Hollywood that this is something we not only can do, but make amazing. I look forward to you enjoying NUCLEAR ZOMBIES FROM AREA 51!!
