The ORIGINAL BLOOD SHED VIDEO PITCH
BLOOD SHED TEASER
SHED is a feature-length horror script that we plan to direct & produce
into one of the creepiest, most-memorable horror films to ever hit the screen. 90%
of the story takes place in one location (a massive self-storage facility) and
is written with the potential for sequels (a horror must, right?). With the combination of cultures,
mythologies, and characters, BLOOD SHED has the potential to become a grass
roots, crossover sensation amongst American and Latin-American audiences. The script was recently chosen as a Quarterfinalist in the
prestigious 2010 Nicholl Fellowship in Screenwriting run by the Academy Awards.
SHED is a chilling, mind-bending, horror film that features a totally new creature, arena, and mythology. What 'Jaws'
did for people going into the water, 'Blood
Shed' will do for anyone having to visit that long-lost storage
shed. BLOOD SHED is an unconventional horror film, which is why our approach to the production, distribution, and interaction with our audience will be just as unconventional. We want to remain independent, cutting out the middle man and giving you (the audience), the best, most interactive horror experience possible!
investment will enable us to
complete the Production and Post-Production of BLOOD SHED, which will include casting
& location scouting during Pre-Production. Along with having secured
acclaimed actor Brandon Ratcliff ('Me And
You And Everyone We Know') for our cast, we will be actively pursuing to sign a few other names, including Danny Trejo ('Machete'). Our production team will be tapping into some of the most cutting-edge film pioneers of the 21st
century, helping us with crowd-funding, viral marketing, and alternative means of distribution.
the production, we’ll maintain a project blog about the film’s progress and
post plenty of photos and bonus videos as we want YOU to be as much a part
of the production as we are! The film is set to be released in 2012 and will be shipped out on a Special-Edition DVD set after our LA
Premiere (and following its festival run).
GABRIEL, an unemployed loner living in his car, gets an opportunity
to make some quick cash, he takes it. The only catch--he's now the
subject of an indie-documentary about homelessness in LA. After agreeing
with the film's DIRECTOR to go on camera, Gabriel receives a package at
his PO Box. It's a key to a storage
shed. They document as Gabriel goes to the storage shed and opens it.
Inside lay artifacts from his biological parents, with clues to their
mysterious disappearance. After Gabriel decides to
crash in the shed for the night, he agrees to take the Director's video
camera and document his nightly findings.
Gabriel soon discovers a small community of squatters living within
the claustrophobic shed spaces of the massive complex. A mother and her
teenage son (TRACE). An old man. A prostitute (DEVON), a meth-head
(LUCY), and several other bizarre characters. He also has a run-in with
the crass Armenian manager (ARSEN), who
is convinced that people are living in their sheds.
carefully placed visual teases, we soon discover that a shape-shifting,
she-creature lives amongst this dark maze of makeshift dwellings, a sinister
purpose arising as she senses the arrival of the
facility's newest resident, Gabriel.
Gabriel shacks up in the dingy storage shed, he rummages through its
contents, looking for clues to his biological history, finding only a
that seems to lead ultimately to his mother's (JEZEBEL) murder, and his
abandonment. His soul torn, Gabriel wanders the halls of the large
building, coming across the mute Old Man, who warns him to leave.
to Gabriel and the rest, Arsen has locked them in for the night to teach
them the ultimate lesson.
twisting hallways and the tunnels that run below provide a grim setting for the horrid events that will come to pass. A
supernatural creature with a thirst for blood and a demented desire to
procreate will turn this place into a labyrinth of death, connected in a
surprising and bizarre way to Gabriel, a mystery that unfolds as the blood
begins to fly.
find ourselves trapped in this story, laced with dark biblical
Mexican Santeria. The bloodshed and tension reach stomach-churning
heights as we
discover the origins of the creature and the horrific tie between
the she-beast that stalks him through the darkness. With an ending
certain to haunt your dreams for years to come, BLOOD SHED is a creative
tense romp into the horror genre, reminiscent of some of the greatest
horror films ever
made (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre,
Paranormal Activity, The Last Broadcast).
HOW DO YOU PLEDGE? IT'S EASY!
1) Just click the green “Back This Project”
button on any project page.
2) You will be asked to input your pledge
amount and select a reward.
3) From there, you will go through the Amazon
checkout process. Note that you must finish the Amazon checkout process
for your pledge to be recorded.
IF I MAKE A PLEDGE, WHEN IS MY CARD CHARGED?
If the project you’re backing is successfully funded, your card will
be charged when the project reaches its funding deadline.
If the project
does not reach its funding goal, your card is never charged. That's why
we call them pledges.
IF FUNDING DOES NOT SUCCEED, DO BACKERS PAY ANYTHING?
Nothing. If funding fails, all pledges are canceled and that's that.
HAVING PROBLEMS SIGNING INTO AMAZON PAYMENTS?
I've been informed that some people are having problems logging into
the amazon site to make a pledge...it could be because you're using a
wrong password or someone else in the family is using your account and
changed the password.
The easiest way to get around this is to use a different email
address and set up a new account. You can get a free email account
through Yahoo.com, gmail.com, and many other sites. This is also a good
idea because you can use that new email just for shopping and joining a
mailing list, and that way, your main email doesn't get a lot of junk
you have any questions, feel free to email me at
