What is Z*Con?
Z*Con is feature length 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.
Where's the money going?
While our crew has full time jobs, they will be donating their time to make this project happen up until filming begins. Excellent news is that we're off to a great start. St. Johns Properties is donating a warehouse space big enough for our sets, but we're going to run into costs we can't take on by ourselves. That's where you come in. We'll need to do auditions, FX tests, production art, storyboard, film a teaser trailer, and... the costs will add up.
We've set this Kickstarter campaign at $25,000 to get pre-production rolling. This will be everything we have to take care of to get us started. With the funds raised through Kickstarter, we'll be able to move forward with making this film with less of a funding hurdle and we want you to be a part of that process.
What do I get for backing this project?
As Neil Gaiman tweeted about us, 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.
Our first attempt at a kickstarter campaign taught us a valuable lesson. Because of the lessons learned from that, this will be the first of three fundraising campaigns for us. The pre-production campaign will provide us with seed money to get started prepping, casting, scouting, and film an amazing teaser trailer. Then there will be a production campaign to get us through the shoot and finally a post-production campaign to get us through editing/sound design and finishing costs. And by backing this project you'll be with us every step of the way.
What happens if we help you exceed your goal?
That would make you totally awesome and worth our praise and thanks. The pledges that come in, after we exceed our goal, will go towards expanding the pre-production and making the film. We'll also include some awesome stretch goal rewards that we'll announce when we reach that point.
