HELP KILL SANTA! YOU KNOW YOU WANT TOO! :) Join us in bringing to life a haunting vision that is destined to become a cult classic for the holiday season. With your generous pledges you will be rewarded with amazing PRESENTS from the ultimate scrooge himself, Writer/Director Dick Jane. All presents come equipped with a distinct bragging right, which you can proudly tell all your friends, family, and enemies about. I Killed Santa! :)
Timmy is obsessed with Christmas and dresses up as Santa 24/7 – 365. When Timmy finds out he's not being rehired as the local mall Santa because of the color of his (white) skin he is devastated. With his late mother’s impending foreclosure, he recruits his only friend Bobby, the town’s resident player to help set up a North Pole attraction in the mother's garage to save the house. All goes well until Bobby’s girlfriend Jade, a naive prom queen, ushers in domestic horror as a downward spiral sinks its teeth into their worlds. Skeletons come screaming out of the closet, as tragedy strikes on Christmas morning. Merry F@cking Christmas!
WHERE YOUR PLEDGES ARE GOING:
The pledge goal of $1,000 for this short film is set modestly low to help feed the crew and to create the elaborate sets for the film. Key scenes of the film will be shot in L.A., San Francisco and Sacramento. Tons of hours have already been invested in the North Pole set alone, which you can catch an early glimpse of in the preview (which was specifically created for this kickstarter campaign) above. So let's shoot for the stars together. Thank you once again for your support. This will be one hell of a ride.
