About this project
It was a time of magic and wonder, when the pure of heart would be tested, and unicorns and demons still roamed the earth...
A time... called 1989.
DUNGEONS & DRAGQUEENS was conceived and written as a retro-horror fantasy feature film in 2014. 20 mins of test footage was filmed with amateur equipment in the fall of 2016 with only three days, a crew of 20, and under $1000 USD... As a sample of what can be done with no budget.
We now have two full frame 35mm SONY A7RII cameras to shoot the feature with, as well as professional sound equipment! The film's micro budget will insure high quality sets and retro practical FX.
The soundtrack will be comprised of insane retro-punk bands and scored with a Moog and Italian synths of the 70's and 80's. See some of our test footage and full scenes with scoring below-

Risks and challenges
SHOOTING IN LOW LIGHTING
What you're unable to see is what will scare you. Low lighting in B-movies is usually accomplished with day to night filters and post production tricks. WE THINK THIS LOOKS DUMB. Our crew deals with this by combining Film Noir lighting and atmospheric foggers to give depth of field.
SETS AND PRACTICAL FX
Sets and FX are typically done poorly on B-movies due to their low budget. Our FX team's ability to create "Tiffany"(the rotted head) out of a couch cushion exemplifies what we can accomplish with very little money in our preview. A low budget will never stand in the way of a determined imagination.
Hollywood strays from realism due to its unappealing nature. Perhaps because their writers are attempting to target a mass audience. This causes the film to lack a defined identity. I write dialogue taken directly from friends and strangers, and scenarios from real-life experiences. I often jot down notes in public to capture this. Reality can be more exciting, magical and horrifying than any poorly scripted movie.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
