626 Evolution (scifi feature)

$25,325

Here at Arrowstorm, we've made a few scifi films in the past, ranging from the action-creature-spectacle SURVIVOR, to post-apocalyptic zombie films like OSOMBIE and WE ALL FALL DOWN, to the cerebral space odyssey MAGELLAN. Now we bring you something completely new - 626 EVOLUTION - a present-day, urban, found-footage, scifi paranoid-thriller.

Directed by John Lyde, the visionary behind some of Arrowstorm's most beloved films - OSOMBIE, THE SHADOW CABAL, SURVIVOR, THE CHRISTMAS DRAGON and the last two MYTHICA films, 626 EVOLUTION stars fan-favorite Danielle Chuchran, back at her butt-kicking best.

As with all our past Kickstarter efforts, this film has already been shot and edited, and we are well into post-production. The trailer is actual footage from the film, so you can get a good gauge of the quality, and how close we are to fulfilling our vision.

Hunted by government agents and constantly assaulted by a cartel of vengeful thugs, an amnesiac known only as “626” searches for her true identity while protecting a teenage girl who shares her superhuman combat skills; but when 626 uncovers the horrifying truth about her past, she must infiltrate enemy headquarters to expose a corporate conspiracy that threatens the free world, before she and her companion are silenced forever.

 

Danielle Chuchran - a rapidly rising action star, you've seen her decapitate zombies, massacre orcs, and cuddle puppies and ponies. Dani's back in fighting form, kicking butt and taking names.

Ruby Jones - if you're an Arrowstorm fan, you'll recognize this talented young actress from her roles in Survivor and Christmas Dragon. Now she'll do something unexpected...

Filmmaking is expensive business, and there’s no way we’d be able to make awesome indie fantasy and sci-fi films without the support of our community of fans and backers. Kickstarter is an invaluable resource which not only allows us to fund our films, but also lets us do it while connecting directly with fantasy and sci-fi fans like you! 

We’ve been able to make some really fun films, all because of your contributions. We want to do that again, and again, and again!

With Kickstarter it’s all or nothing. Backers pledge an amount and choose a reward. At the end of our 30-day Kickstarter campaign, if the total of all pledges for our project meets or exceeds our goal, then the credit cards of those who pledge are charged and we receive the funding. If not, we receive nothing, nobody gets charged, but everybody is sad :( 

We're not looking for charity, we're looking for an early sales venue - that's why our rewards reflect fair market value. Don't think of it as a donation, think of it as a pre-purchase. If you want to see this film, buy it now through Kickstarter - you'll probably get a better deal from us than from whatever retailer ends up selling it in your country. PLUS, our films release at all different times around the world. Our Kickstarter backers usually get to see the finished product months ahead of the general public. 

We're a small group of independent filmmakers who love making movies, and have been at it for about a decade. It's our full-time job, and every film we have made has received worldwide distribution. We do pretty much everything ourselves, from conception to financing to production to securing distribution. We love fantasy and science fiction and know there’s others out there like us, who we aim to please. 

We've done several films on Kickstarter in the past - including The Crown and the DragonOsombieThe Shadow CabalOrc WarsSurvivorThe Christmas Dragon and Mythica 1 - 5, and most of our supporters keep coming back, which means we're doing something right :)

Risks and challenges

Film is a complicated technical exercise, and often unforeseen difficulties arise, causing budget and scheduling overruns - particularly when complex visual effects are involved. That being said, we are an experienced group and have successfully completed and released every film we have started - over 20 of them now. We have produced several visual effects heavy projects in the past, and see no reason why we shouldn't continue to accomplish our goals.

On the plus side, this film is largely complete. A great deal of the risk in the project has already been mitigated, and we are too far along to turn back and give up. We are seeking funding to complete a visual effects sequence, and have the personnel to pull it off, regardless of complications.
