Eggs is the new horror short by Ryan Stockstad and Crowned Prince Productions, starring horror icons Lynn Lowry and Duane Whitaker!

A lonely woman in a small town is hearing voices. With her family all either dead or gone, it isn't long before she begins to believe that her dead son is speaking to her. This motivates her to take action for the first time in years, but without the support of people who care for her, things go very, very badly. 

Lynn Lowry - Shivers (1975), The Crazies (1973), Cat People (1982), I Drink Your Blood (1970), The Theatre Bizarre (2011), The Haunting of Whaley House (2012), etc.

Duane Whitaker - Pulp Fiction (1994), From Dusk Till Dawn 2: Texas Blood Money (1999), The Devil's Rejects (2005), Halloween II (2009), Tales From the Hood (1995), Feast (2005), etc.

Julia Lehman - Cheerleader Massacre 2 (2011), Dark Reel (2008), Volcano Zombies (2014), etc.

G. Larry Butler - Frankenstein vs. the Creature from Blood Cove (2005), Panman (2011), The Janitor (2003), etc.

Maetrix Fitten - Hancock (2008), Necessary Measures (2012), Windsor Drive (2014), etc.

Marc Fajardo - Little Paradise (2013), Sleepy Hollow (2013), Sam & Cat (2013), etc.

Tina Molina - Panman (2011), The Perfect Husband: The Laci Peterson Story (2004), etc.

Carl Solomon - The Video Dead (1987), Panman (2011), The Friggin' Mafia Movie (2001), etc.

Aaron Lee Harvey - Party Foul (2011), Francis the Brave (2012), etc.

Ryan Stockstad (Director/Producer) - Ryan studied film and screenwriting at Minneapolis Community College and made his first movies over 20 years ago. He is the creative force behind Crowned Prince Productions, often writing and producing films for award-winning filmmaker Andrew Kadikian. Their recent collaboration Press COOK (2014) won the audience award for its screening group at the 2014 Los Angeles 48 Hour Film Project, and they recently completed the Kickstarter-funded movie Walk-Ons. Ryan has given student lectures on topics as diverse as low budget filmmaking, short story screenplay structure and the influence of the Spanish Civil War on surrealist cinema. Eggs will be his 7th project as writer or producer in the last two years, and his 6th project as director since 2010.

Gui Pereira (Producer) - Gui is a graduate of two collegiate film programs: Art Institute California - Hollywood in 2012, and The Los Angeles Film School in 2010. His recent films include The Adventures of Sheriff Kid McLain (2013) - starring noted character actor Joe Stevens (True Grit, Lone Star, etc.), and Pizza Me, Mafia (2014) - starring comic, Brazilian television and screen star Tom Cavalcante. Both films have garnered festival nominations and awards.

Andrew Kadikian (Producer) - Andrew graduated from the film program at Art Institute California - Hollywood in 2014 after successfully completing his thesis film Walk-Ons (2014). His student portfolio film, In the Way (2013), won best picture in the 2013 Rising Star Awards. Press COOK (2014), his recent collaboration with Ryan Stockstad, took home the audience award for its screening group at the 2014 Los Angeles 48 Hour Film Project.

Jon Rosenberg (Screenwriter) - Jon Graduated from NYU's Tisch School of the Arts with a BFA in Film and Television Production. His collaborations with Adam Sandler resulted in material featured on Sandler's platinum-selling comedy albums What's Your Name? and What the Hell Happened to Me? He developed and wrote two unproduced screenplays for actor Anthony Quinn. He wrote the cult horror movie Bit Parts, available on DVD from Cinema Epoch.

Garon Cockrell (Original Story Writer) - Garon is the founder and editor of the media site Pop Culture Beast and a host of the podcast Pop Culture Beast Show. His horror screenplay In a Crooked Little House won Best Screenplay at the 2013 Motor City Nightmares Film Festival. His original short story Eggs can be found in the collection Demonic and Other Tales: The Short Fiction of Garon Cockrell.

Ryan Orvis (Composer) - Ryan is a co-founder of independent record label Stow House Records. He has released music under the name Mathesar, and collaborated with the rock bands Pirate Planet and Sky Parade. He composed the synth-heavy score for A Tale of Two Zombies as an intentional homage to the sound of classic Romero and John Carpenter films. His score for Eggs, utilizing dissonant and backwards guitar sounds, is sure to please fans of minimalist music and horror movie soundtracks.  

Damon Packard (Editor) - Damon's cult favorite Reflections of Evil is a satirical, underground classic that has played in art houses, galleries and film retrospectives almost monthly since its release in 2002. He played L. Ron Hubbard in Craig Baldwin's 2008 experimental montage movie Mock Up on Mu and has a brief role in David Gregory's horror anthology The Theatre Bizarre. His 2012 comic fantasy film Foxfur expands upon his unique, nightmarish vision of the world we inhabit. He previously edited Ryan Stockstad's A Tale of Two Zombies and Party Foul. His latest project is part of a larger horror anthology to be released by Severin Films.

We've crunched the numbers and line produced the project, and $30,000 is the minimum budget we'll need to make this movie, without sacrificing talented cast and crew, practical effects, necessary locations, etc. This will cover the realistic expenses involved in making a movie of this scale: Equipment rentals, Cast, Crew, Permits, Locations, Stunts, Practical Effects, etc.

We've created a pie chart to illustrate the expected budget breakdown.

Here's what people are on the web are saying about us!

We're currently about 35% funded! Keep it up!

Kickstarter enables artists to raise both money and interest for their projects, making it an immensely powerful tool for filmmakers. It is especially beneficial to independent filmmakers who don't have the luxuries of big-budget Hollywood productions and who can't afford to give away creative freedoms in exchange for funding.

Short films have some inherent benefits over feature films in that they allow for smaller budgets, shorter productions and unique story structures, making them ideal for independent filmmakers. Unfortunately they also suffer from significantly smaller markets, reduced investment opportunities, and uncertain profit potentials. For that reason, Kickstarter can be a savior to independent filmmakers, both for enabling them to connect with their audience and for providing a platform with which to raise funds that might otherwise be unavailable to them.

Kickstarter enables us to find the most passionate support for our project. This is why we've come to you, fans of horror and indie cinema, to create a shared vision that we can all be proud of. We hope to connect with an audience who will be as excited about seeing this project through to fruition as we are.

Risks and challenges

Certain challenges exist in all independent film productions, including budgetary challenges, scheduling challenges, technical challenges, etc. Such is the nature of low budget filmmaking. However, with Ryan and Gui's combined skill and experience driving the project, we feel the risks and challenges are few.

That said, our commitment to practical effects and stunts requires a heightened level of planning and attention. The safety of our cast and crew will be our primary concern. The comfort and happiness of our cast and crew, especially while working on location, is also important. Transportation to and from locations, lodging if necessary, set security, and other concerns require special attention. We'll need to work out the legal and logistical solutions to these challenges and more before going into production.

Crowned Prince Productions and Nine Entertainment have over 20 years of combined filmmaking experience. We've encountered all manner of problems in the past and we've successfully risen to the challenge. We're hardened, independent filmmakers who know how to make a movie on schedule and under budget.

Furthermore, we've taken steps to ensure that each aspect of our Kickstarter campaign runs smoothly and that all rewards are fulfilled. We want all of our backers to feel proud and excited to be a part of this project!
