And who are you?


We are Big Damn Films. Since we are a 501(c)(3) organization, all pledges are tax-deductible, minus the value of the rewards you receive.

What is Z*Con?

Z*Con is a Horror/Comedy film about four teen podcasters who are trapped at a comic convention when the zombie apocalypse breaks out. They use social media to share what’s going on inside with the outside world. It’s kind of like “Goonies” meets “Shaun of the Dead” set in…well….a comic convention.




What do I get for backing this project?


We don’t believe you should have to pay for the movie twice…unless you want to. So every single backer of this project will receive, at the minimum, a digital copy of the film and their name in the film’s credits. Yep, you read that right. For $15, you will receive a digital copy of the film, your name in the credits, access to content on our website (where you’ll receive news a week earlier than anyone else), and an invitation to be an extra in our film when we begin production. The rewards are only going up from there.


What is our goal, and where will that money go?


Every penny will go directly towards completing our project which is our film’s production and contributor rewards. Our budget covers everything from production insurance, location fees, equipment rentals, cast and crew wages, props, costumes, and makeup to the VFX, sound design, and, well, everything we will need to make the film. While the budget may seem low to you, we learned how to maximize our funds during our first film. And, since we’re a non-profit organization, some aspects will be donated to the production, which also helps reduce costs.

What happens if we exceed our goal?

The pledges that come in, after we exceed our goal, will go towards expanding the production and marketing the film. We'll also include some awesome stretch goal rewards that we'll announce when we reach that point.
