NO ONE CALL PETA!!!
Successful first stretch!
No one call PETA, because the birds were from a university research project. Our first stretch goal killed a starling (virtually). And we hope we do it again. We went back to the drawing board and made some cool updates to our stretch goals moving forward. Here they are:
It’s amazing to continue to see donations come in! As you know we couldn't have done it without you!! And every bit helps us make Lullaby even better! We believe collaboration is key to a successful independent film, so we're excited to share our collaborators for our next stretch goal of $325k.
What's next? Director's concept art book illustrated by The Pander Brothers.
Our next stretch goal of $325k will give all backers a bonus reward of a digital book download from the brilliant minds that worked on the original Dark Knight comic book series. The Pander Brothers' mad illustrating skills can also be seen previously in GirlFiend, published by DarkHorse Comics.
Our director Andy Mingo will be intimately working with The Pander Brothers to illustrate and develop conceptual art for Lullaby. Check out their work. You won't regret it! They are amazing.
Why give to our project?
We, as filmmakers, are dedicated to giving you the best film possible. In the end, a bigger budget will mean a higher quality production. This is where you come in! Here's what a larger budget would mean for the film:
Upgraded visual effects! When it comes to talking cows, it can be a dangerous thing to underfund the VFX! We project an indie VFX budget of at least $200,000, but the bigger our budget, the better the effects, especially for scenes like the Judas Cow and the Seattle Ivy Inferno.
As Oyster would say, “When you think about it, Johnny Appleseed was a fucking ecological terrorist.” We agree with Oyster. Being that Lullaby takes place at various locations throughout the country, a realistic representation of the environment is important to portray contemporary America and the impact that we've had on our landscape. The bigger the budget, the better the locations.
World class actors!
A-list actors are expensive. When Chuck and Andy wrote the screenplay, they had some very notable actors in mind (take a guess at who we're thinking), and are currently in correspondence with these actors. Many of them have read the script and are interested in being a part of the film! That is, so long as we can pay them the salary that their talent demands. With every dollar our budget increases, the closer we move to securing one or more A-list actors.
A kickass crew!
Team Lullaby is committed to recruiting and hiring professional crew members, many of which are from right here in Portland, Oregon, but this also includes talented and diverse women and men from around the country. There’s no doubt about it, a great film requires a great crew.
