"American Exorcist" is the second horror film from directors Tony Trov & Johnny Zito. It's about a paranormal investigator, trapped in a haunted skyscraper on Christmas Eve. The skeptical young woman, Georgette Dubois, is horrified once confronted with the reality of the supernatural. She risks life and limb to escape her ghoulish prison, stranded on the 11th floor.
We've already raised the production budget of $30,000. The film will begin shooting in February at an office building in Philadelphia, PA.
However, we DO NOT have the funds to get through Post-Production.
These expenses include (but are not limited to):
-A professional editing computer
-Tons of hard drive space
-Export fees-Distribution costs
Of course this is a bare bones list. Should we raise more money for "American Exorcist" our stretch goals include:
-Post visual effects
-Drone Camera Shots
-Professional box cover design
This is a huge professional leap for a lot of the people involved. With this money we'll be able to afford the audio and visual professionalism the story demands.
"American Exorcist" is the second film we are attempting to fund through Kickstarter. With your help, we're proving this is a viable way for artists to support their dreams.
Risks and challenges
The risk, for us, is that we'll produce this money but won't have the budget to complete post production.
We already have the funds to complete principal photography. "American Exorcist" will be shot in February, 2015. The actors are cast, the crew is in place, and the equipment is reserved.
What happens after that is entirely up to you; our friends and family and supporters. We need your help to get through post production and usher our film onto screens around the world.
We've raised this money, the cast and crew are coming together to work really hard on the shoot, and if we don't make our Kickstarter goal, no one will ever see the fruits of that labor.
Three years ago we launched a kickstarter campaign for our first film "Alpha Girls" - we exceeded our goals and now the film can be seen on DVD and VOD. In the midst of our second film, we're confident that we know what to expect moving forward. We are intimately familiar with the trials of post production and the numbers we've crunched are realistic.
We are Do-It-Yourself filmmakers from Philadelphia, many of whom have worked on award winning hollywood movies. "American Exorcist" is a chance for us to make for ourselves what we are so often hired to do for others. In our sophomore effort we hope to grow as artists and creators, learning from our previous endeavour and building on that experience.
Our budget includes production and shipping costs of the Rewards. So, there are no concerns about fulfilling our obligations to the Kickstarter contributors. We did our best to keep the community involved in our last project. Now we have all new ideas on how to do an even better job this time.
We're looking forward to bringing this project to you, and getting everyone involved.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
