 St George vs The Dragon.....or was it THE PREDATOR!!!

Our Predator fan film is set in the Dark Ages, it is a period in history where mankind was plagued by disease and famine, as well as having to live and die by the sword.

Our film follows a group of war-torn Templar knights who have returned from the Eastern lands, back to England, only to find that the enemy is now a lot closer and a lot more deadly than before. 

Throughout time the Predator has always looked for the greatest warriors to fight in battle, and with this short film we will see him put to the test against the some of the best history has ever seen, the Templar Knights.

Their battle with the Predator is the thing Myths and Legends are made of.

                       WE ARE AIMING TO RAISE £10-20k

But £5000 is our back-up, to at least make one epic extended trailer or micro short film!

Our story begins in a dark prison cell, with a mysterious man chained to the wall, tired and hungry, he is the only living survivor from an attack on a group of soldiers. The only living witness to the atrocities a demon of the night performed in front of his very eyes.

Entrusted by the church to hunt down the beast that slaughtered their brothers in arms, a group of battle worn Templar Knight's must use this only witness to find and kill the demon that plagues the English countryside.

To lead this group is a knight who no longer believes in God or country, and has given up on humanity. But will this one last battle help him regain his lust for life and save his fellow brothers, as well as himself?

The soldiers are only too aware of the devastation that was brought to their lost comrades, and so must turn to others to assist in their quest. So a group of battle hardened, money driven mercenaries are called upon to join the hunt.

Having to not only drag with them a suspicious sole survivor who is an eye witness, but also a pack of un-trust worthy mercenaries, a difficult path full of twists and turns lies ahead for the Templar knight's, more so than they first believed.....

The production of our short will be taken on by Ki Films www.kifilms.co.uk who are an extremely experienced production company. Their work has ranged from Award winning short films to Music promo's with chart topping artists. They have also worked closely with the RX8 Fight team, some of whom featured in Batman Begins.           Production's Showreel

 

TARGET GOAL - £15-20,000

At this price bracket, we will be able to produce the full script in all its glory, at a length of 20-25 minutes.

We will be able to use a high-end cinema camera such as the Red Epic (used on the Hobbit), and the very best lenses to accompany it. As well as a full SFX crew, post production VFX, stunt work, horses, a remote camera helicopter and much more.

 MID RANGE GOAL - £10,000

At this price range we are looking at producing a short film of around 8-10 minutes. This would be a cut down version from the full script, with having to lose some fight sequences, even some scenes, as well as a lower end production kit and a smaller crew. Therefore not quite being able to reach the scripts full potential.

BASIC GOAL - £5000

We have set this price as our kickstarter minimum, so we will be able to at least produce a high concept trailer, giving you a glimpse of what could be a brilliant Dark Ages set Predator film.

We have some great rewards up for grabs, all named after the ranks and positions held within a medieval army! Starting with the small donations and digital downloads of artwork to limited edition t-shirts in the mid-range donations, to copies of the script and a Templar Knight’s helmet at the higher end.

Risks and challenges

To produce this short film at its full potential, we need as much help as possible from all of you Predator fans out there.

We will be doing lots of nods to the original film, whilst still maintaining a strong independent story of our own, with great characters and action scenes.

There are lots of costs involved, such as green screen VFX, transportation to remote destinations for filming, hire of remote helicopters for aerial shots, as well as sfx equipment such as rain, smoke and fire rigs.
Not forgetting the authentic costumes and armoury that our characters will be using!

SO PLEASE SUPPORT THE CAUSE, LET'S HUNT DOWN THE DEMON TOGETHER AND MAKE THIS MEDIEVAL PREDATOR FAN FILM COME TO LIFE!

LET THE HUNT BEGIN!!!!
