The dashingly good looking team from Franky Films and Spectropia Pictures are making their first ever feature length movie, Woodland Grey. That's right, a full 90+ minutes of cinematic movie magic!

 

Without giving away all the surprises, Woodland Grey is a live action, stylized horror film about a hermit who saves the life of a woman in the forest only to have her discover something horrible behind his backwoods home. It’s dark and it’s creepy but more importantly it touches upon aspects of the human condition that we all struggle with in our lives.

We have never been more ready for anything than we are for this film but we just need your help to make it as big as we possibly can! Funds from Kickstarter will be used for:

Cast and crew. In addition to the familiar faces of Bill Moseley and Nicole Arbour, we will be casting talent from all over and recruiting some super talented people for our crew as well. The more money we have, the more talent we can get on board. It’s simple math.

Visual effects. Woodland Grey is a horror film with some pretty demanding special effects. We would much rather not actually do horrible things to our cast, instead leave it up to the talented special effects people to make it look like bad things are happening. So actually, your money here may actually save lives. How much is a life worth to you?

Location and set. With more money we can stay in the deep woods longer and survive the shoot instead of sleeping on the wet ground, get eaten by large animals or worse, each other when our food runs out. Again, your money will keep us alive. Also help the art department make cool sets!

Here's a breakdown of the budget and their relative portion in Woodland Grey:

 

Adam Reider – Director / Co-writer

 Adam is an award winning filmmaker from Montreal whose films have played internationally. Since his first short “Dog Sitter” Screened at Tromadance in 2011, Adam has been on a roll making short after short. His films have screened at Fantasia, JFL, AUFF and SLIFF to name a few. He is also the owner and operator of Spectropia pictures (Rail City Media).

Bill Moseley - Actor

 William "Bill" Moseley is an American film actor and musician who has starred in a number of cult classic horror films, including House of 1000 Corpses (2003), Repo! The Genetic Opera (2008) and The Devil's Rejects (2005). His first big role was in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 (1986) as Chop Top. On the HBO TV series Carnivàle (2003), Moseley had a recurring role as camp cook Possum. He has also released records with guitarist Buckethead in the band Cornbugs, as well as featuring on the guitarist's solo work.

Nicole Arbour – Actress

 

Nicole Arbour is an actress, known for The Rocker (2008), You Might as Well Live (2009) and Silent But Deadly (2011) She is well known for her YouTube channel and her comedic personality.

Francesco Giannini - Producer

Actor turned director/producer, Francesco Giannini has acted in films such as X-Men or 300 and produced/directed numerous award winning short films and documentaries. In 2013 he started up his own production company, Franky Films, to pursue his creative endeavors in producing genre films, directing, and acquiring new, out-of-the-box material.

Christina Saliba - Producer

 Christina Saliba started out as a rookie field biologist with a degree in Agricultural and Environmental Sciences from McGill University before venturing into the world of wildlife documentaries. She has worked as a production coordinator on a wide variety of shorts, features, and documentaries. She is currently helming the development and distribution branch of Franky Films.

Tamara Dupuis – Producer

 For the past six years, Tamara Dupuis has developed the business infrastructures of multiple Montreal-based media companies; taking care of all administration and legal affairs. Having always had a passion for cinema and after assisting on Hollywood productions such as Brothers & Sisters and Everwood, she has turned her attention to the film industry and is now thriving to make Franky Films a prominent production company.

Jesse Toufexis - Co-writer

Jesse just completed his Master’s degree and is beginning a Ph.D.  studying gothic horror and mysticism in Jewish literature. He has worked on a number of projects, including Zombie Apocalypse: A Musical for Montreal’s Fringe Festival and has been published in a number of magazines, including Urbania and Shtetl.

Woodland Grey is for those who enjoyed the following films as much as we have: Misery, The Babadook, Jacobs Ladder, It follows, Goodnight Mommy, Deliverance, Antichrist.

 

Risks and challenges

Backing a crowd-funded project has risks especially when it comes to producing movies. They are super expensive and take a lot of coordination and luck to make happen. So how do you know backing this project will actually yield a finished film?
Consider these: We have all been working in film for many years and we all bring our own strong talents to the table that make this team ready for success. With the Money you donate alongside money from other investors will all go towards bringing Woodland Grey to life. I can tell you that one way or another, Woodland Grey is getting made and I give you my word that I will work hard to make it the best film I can with the resources available to me.
