About this project

Spirit in the Woods, by Anthony Daniel

This shocking unseen documentary footage of what really happened to the small group of college students that dared to enter Spiritual Woods, which in return they were never ever seen again or at least we thought……

The Path to Spiritual Woods...

... isn't going to be easy without you, but I’ll still do it because I truly believe in this project.  Just think about Paranormal Activity and The Blair Witch Project... both had small budgets and both did very well. I promise you, I’ll bring you the next greatest scariest story you'll ever see! My main plan will be to have a total of 6 short films that all play along with one another, but I like to call them chapters, because you'll be watching the untold stories of all the college students that went into Spiritual Woods.   We'll be filming this project with many different types of cameras and view points, so it'll be like your in the woods with them.  Spirit in the Woods will be something you'll kill to be a part of and have your name credited too!  I plan to make 6 short films that all play into one another, but this kickstarter is just for the first short and the trailer.  Josh Stolberg will be the first person to review the film once it's done!!

You doubt me?

Just because you haven't heard of me doesn't mean it won't be amazing.  I’ll give this project my all until the day I die. You may doubt me once, but never twice. The love I have for this project is unreal. This project keeps me up at night, because I have a feeling that it’ll be so much more once it’s started and done. You ever get a feeling like that? You know you have to do something no matter what it might be, so you go out and do it, well this is my feeling. I want to make this our feeling. So, please share this project with everyone. You’re the only one that can grant me powers; you can make me become a super hero for a day and know you’ll be changing my life forever, even if it’s just a dollar

The Budget $ Plan:

The budget is set to $750, which is the lowest amount I would need to get this project made better.  This project will be made with or without this, but I hope you’ll grant me this chance of making it better and giving me the power to take care of my cast and crew

Pre-productioncosts will include; locations, permits, costumes (clothes and mask), props (blood, tools, food, and etc.), gear (camping gear and cameras), and the official Website.  The total would be around $300 of the total budget.

Production costs will include; paying the actors/crew for their time, and food on set and etc. (Even if you donate a dollar it’ll go a long way.  I really want to get this budget, so I may pay the actors and crew.)

Post Production costs will include; editing (software and etc.), marketing (website, and adverting.), music, and lastly fees for entering this short film into the OHIO INDEPENDENT FILM FESTIVAL 2013, SUNDANCE 2014, and some other local festivals.

Help Support! 

I can't do it all alone but I’ll try my hardest too if I don’t make the budget.  This is why I need all of your support for my project, and who knows what you might invest in, because I believe where you invest your love, you invest your life and I’m ready too.  Everything I make will always have a meaning.  I live life to the fullest.  The 3 C’s in life: Choice, Chance, and Change.  You must make the CHOICE to take the CHANCE if you want anything in life to CHANGE.

Risks and challenges

As we all know there are many risks and challenges daily, but you'll have nothing to fear if this is fully funded because I am a work horse and whatever I start...I finish, I'll give you my word.

What if someone doesn't show or we can't use a location, never fear... I have backups and I am the writer of this, so if someone doesn't show, I will cast someone new!

You don't understand how important this project is to me... It's my first of many, so you should know how well I want this project to be!

If you give me your support, I won't dare to throw it away. We all have dreams, and this project/story is my dream. We all live life to the fullest never knowing what may come, well I'm coming and you better be ready for what I'm bringing to you.

Anymore questions you would like to ask me... e-mail me and I'll tell you what I'll do if that problem comes up in the making of this short film.

I can't thank you and Kickerstarter.com enough! I hope I can get your support and make something truly unbelievable.

Thank you!
