About this project

A YETI EXPLOITATION MOVIE WITH HEART?
You said it. But it's way more than just a shock-flick. YETI: A LOVE STORY 2: LIFE ON THE STREETS is a passion project that's been a decade in the making. Let us explain...

In 2004, Adam Deyoe and Eric Gosselin were seniors at Emerson College in Boston. In their final year of school, the two aspiring directors took it upon themselves to make a horror-comedy for around two hundred dollars. The resulting feature, YETI: A LOVE STORY has been one of the most successful DIY Troma flicks of the 21st century. (It's been viewed over 110K times on Youtube and sold out multiple times from Amazon!) You can find that on YOUTUBE (search it!)

Recently YETI: A LOVE STORY went viral after its synopsis from Xfinity appeared on Tumblr and received millions of hits. It then went on to Imgur, BuzzFeed, and most notably, the front page of Reddit. This generated huge amounts of buzz and interest all over the world.

 Now, 10 years later, Deyoe and Gosselin have teamed with Jim Martin (who wrote some of the first movie and also had a noticeable cameo) to continue the story.

YETI: A LOVE STORY 2: LIFE ON THE STREETS is a violent, sordid, sexy and outrageous feature film that explores the seedy underbelly of Los Angeles. Attacking the senses from the get-go with big laughs, Yeti love, cloning, a devil-pimp, the Cop Mafia, relationship troubles, kidnapping, murders, and lemon-party yeti sex and drugs, YETI 2 is a hilariously depraved gross-out horror comedy. With inspiration ranging from Harry & The Hendersons, Taxi Driver, Hardcore, Taken, Aliens, The Toxic Avenger, and Back to the Future, YETI: A LOVE STORY 2: LIFE ON THE STREETS will change the face of “WTF CINEMA” forever.

Along with the directors, the entire cast from the original will be reprising their roles (Even the ones who are famous now... like that one guy who is on PARKS AND RECREATION and the other who won a ton of awards for THE ARTIST) They will also be joined by a brand new yeti, a yeti baby, a whole gaggle of bad cameos, and porn stars. But maybe that doesn't entice you enough... Maybe you need a more indepth "what's this movie about?" Well how's this:

The three of us (Adam Deyoe, Eric Gosselin and Jim Martin) have come a long way in our careers, writing, directing and producing multiple projects in the past 10 years. We plan to use our combined connections, friends and accumulated experience and equipment to create a memorable and shocking film that will outrage AND entertain.

IS THERE A FINISHED SCRIPT?
Yes. Written by Jim Martin & Eric Gosselin, the feature film script is 95 pages long and it's full of awesome. We would post it here, but you don't want us to spoil it for you. Trust us... there are A LOT of twists and turns.

WHO SHOULD BACK THIS PROJECT?
Everyone!  If you've ever seen a movie that inspired you, watched a clip on you tube, downloaded a song, wrote a book, blogged your heart out or just sat around with your friends and told stories and jokes... This movie is for you. Or even if you hate everything I just described. Maybe you have some money that you're looking to get rid of for tax reasons or whatever. We'll take it!

WHY ARE WE USING KICKSTARTER?
YETI: A LOVE STORY 2: LIFE ON THE STREETS Is a movie that could never be made without your help. We aren't trying to make a studio film. We're trying to make the WILDEST WTF independent flick ever... and let's face it, 15K is a lot of money... but it's not a lot for a feature film that you'll be able to cherish, laugh at and punish your family members with for all time.

WHERE WILL YOUR MONEY GO?

We have to pay our cast, first off... And if we have a cast we have to have a set to shoot on (or locations)... and then the cast has to have wardrobe, look good (hair and makeup) and sometimes die violently (sfx & vfx)... And we have to feed people too... Come to think of it, the money's basically already spent. Please send more... oh, and don't worry, we're not getting paid. Any amount we raise on this Kickstarter is going up on the screen!

WHAT IF MORE THAN $15K?

That's not a sentence... but I think I get the drift. We would love to raise more than 15K! The more money we have, the better the final product will look. It's all going on the screen! And there will be stretch goals, too. We don't want to jinx it, but if we reach our goal, we'll tell you about our stretch goals! And yes, they're awesome too!

Risks and challenges

Making an independent movie is always a challenge. Making one for the budget we're planning on making it on, is even harder. The good news is we have done this before. Adam, Eric and Jim have made multiple movies for TROMA HOME VIDEO on budgets of $200, $1500 and $2000, so having a larger budget will immediately give us a leg up.

Scheduling a shoot is always hard as well, but with our relationships to our cast and crew, we have a very democratic and open schedule. The cast and crew all commit their availability to us and we will then schedule it.

Practical locations and sets are all going to be labors of love and acquired during nights, weekends and as favors. If we can't afford it, we're going to pull some strings. That's not always easy, but it's what we do.

Visual effects, special effects and make up are all taken care of by us, but you can never take those things for granted. The time, effort and sweat all take their toll.

Finally, post production... what you can't fix in post, you did wrong in prep or production... And let's just say that the time and hours that we're going to spend on post is through the roof.

Oh, and super finally - we have to get all the perks manufactured - not the hardest challenge there is, but if we spend to much on the film itself, we risk losing money... which wouldn't be the first time we've done that to make a film... but we don't want to do it again.

We're realistic. We know that this isn't going to be easy, but we're sure it's going to be fun and entertaining. We're friends that love working together and making movies that people love. We just want your help to make our favorite film yet.
