Welcome to the Kick Starter page for our film!

       The Hollow Oak is a Sci-Fi, horror, action-drama film we plan to premiere in October of 2012 . Therefore we need your help! Please support us to execute this ambitious project!

We are currently working on a short simulation trailer for you. To help explain the seriousness of our production! Keep in touch!

100% of the raised money will go to the pre-production and production of the future length film. If we exceed our budget goal, the exceeding money will go to paying the cast and crew, as well as paying for your pledges.

THE HOLLOW OAK (SYNOPSIS)

THE HOLLOW OAK is a suspenseful event telling the torn haunted memory of a great grandmother, her long lost friendship, and the curse she cast upon her life. Once the key to the memory has been open, the haunting is then unleashed! It's up to Kate's granddaughter Kayla to contain and destroy the evil that was once a childhood friendship.

OUR MISSION

Located here in Richlands, North Carolina, there are many young, talented people who deserve a chance to shine in the spot light! What I've created is a program where these people get to have fun while experiencing something they've always longed for: a chance to show their talents.  Motivating our community's youth to excel is such a great need not to mention a great feeling! I am young myself and scout for discovery as well. This project I'm creating just might help!  We really need the support of our community (your support) to create a viable venue for more cultural and artistic ventures like this production!

THE STORY

The film is set at a haunted Campsite; "Camp Hollow Oak" where numerous murders were committed in the 1920s. Darla Stewart, (Leah Fisher) the head of a cult reuniting with their dead mothers, performed grotesque spells and a gruesome plot to sacrifice her friends, killing them in the process to reunite with her prosecuted mother.

The town of HOLLOW OAK was conceived in 1983 not knowing the tragedy that once took place on the cursed land. Darla had rigged the campsite with numerous curses, activated by one individuals charm. The locket of Katelyn White; the great grandmother of Kayla Coleman (Samantha Rouse) who is forced by punishment to serve bonding time with her mother Joyce Coleman (Shannon Blackledge.)

As things begin to fall into place for Kayla and her mother; Kayla meets Spencer Humphrey (Cheyenne Mills) and Erin Young (Alaya Mitchell) who show her the beautiful features of the Campground eventually leading up to the meeting of her dream guy Mason carter (Dustin Rau.) One night before their big double date, with Erin and Devin Sparks (not yet casted.) Kayla is suddenly given her great grandmothers charm and the curse is released when Kayla accidentally cuts herself shaving; activating the curse when her blood is dropped on the charm.When they all meet up at Spencer's ghost story bon fire, the story of "Darla's Revenge" is told, introducing what's known as a big myth in the town of Hollow Oak to Kayla. The first killing happens that night! It starts by assimilating and corroding a couple, killing her own boyfriend while she watches in horror. Darla is a dark, shape-shifting creature composed of the evil spirits within her own spell; this force pursues and tries to kill the remaining guests.Finally Spencer comes across Darla's diary hidden in a Hollow Oak tree. It revealed that Darla's tortured soul is out for revenge. Or is that the case? The guest list specifically to include the descendants of five members of Darla's cult who didn't die in the long-ago meeting.

Finally coming across a picture of the five girls, Mason figures that the only way to get out is to go to to a near friends house; Mrs.Williams, who witnessed the killings that night. Erin runs ahead of them to find her missing boyfriend Devin Sparks while Kayla and Mason stay behind to find Spencer, who tries to put an end to the curse herself, but finds that all the passages in Darla's diary were lies! Who killed the five girls that night? The answer is HERE in the never told story of "THE HOLLOW OAK"
