About this project
What Have We Done?
- Death of Love (coming soon to a festival near you!)
- "Infested Ship"
- Brotherhood TV
- Hitting the Wall
- "Cheers: an Ode to John Woo"
- And much more!
We wrote, directed, and produced Hitting the Wall which won numerous awards in festivals 2011 including: A Silver REMI, Best New Director, & Best Director, and it was nominated for Best Actor, Best Writer, & Best Feature!
Last Fall, we wrote directed and produced the short horror "Infested Ship" which shot aboard the U.S.S. Salem. It was premiered aboard the Salem for thousands of viewers and then aired on cable TV!
What Are We Doing?
This fall we’re returning for the feature film Night aboard the Salem.
Why Are We So Excited about Night aboard the Salem?
We’re filming on the U.S.S. Salem, the world’s largest all-gun heavy cruiser!
Better yet, we’re filming a horror on the U.S.S. Salem one of Massachusetts most popular haunted locations! The Salem has already been shown on TV shows such as: Ghost Hunters and A&E’s Ghost Story.
What Exactly Is It About?
Six paranormal investigators are trapped in a bizarre alternate existence inside the U.S.S. Salem, and we see their experience through the footage retrieved from their cameras... They are not in the U.S.S. Salem at least not in our world year in 2012. The group is seeing their own ghosts; and they're not even dead, yet...
What Would We Compare It To?
- Sixth Sense
When I was writing this script, I wanted a twist that would top Sixth Sense, and I wanted to put it in a mind-bending world like Inception, then give it that intensity/danger like Saw. It was a tall order, but we had a big ship and a bigger ocean to put it in.
Why Are We Here on Kickstarter?
We're here on Kickstarter because we feel so strongly about this project! I've already put in my own $5,000.00; and now we're looking for to get people like you involved in the project via Kickstarter!
So Why should You Get Involved?
Because we want to make you a part of the film! In our rewards we have everything from voice over parts you can do from your home to acting parts you can come out to the U.S.S. Salem and do on the world's largest all-gun heavy cruiser! We'll even get you an IMDb page / IMDb credit in Night aboard the Salem. And if acting isn't your thing, you can become a producer! Or come spend the night aboard the Salem with the cast and crew, the real "Night aboard the Salem" experience! Check out the rewards for that!
Another reason for contributing to this project: You won't be just making a film; you'll be helping preserve U.S. History. The U.S.S. Salem is a World War II era heavy cruiser, actually the world's largest all-gun heavy-cruiser; and they get most of their tourism and funding because of their haunted mystique. Night aboard the Salem will help generate a buzz for the U.S.S. Salem; and by contributing to this film, you'll be helping bring more tourism and more funding to the U.S.S. Salem; and you'll be helping preserve U.S. History!
Can You Really Make a Difference?
Hollywood puts millions of dollars into films, so can we make a worthwhile film with just a few thousand? Yes! Because we’re not lining our pockets with this money! We’re all putting in our own money!
For almost no money: The Blaire Witch Project did it; Paranormal Activity did it; and because of all the people who believe in us we can do it too!
Joe Charbanic, the director of The Watcher, flew in to Massachusetts to see the U.S.S. Salem, and he immediately agreed to help out as our supervising producer!
Even the U.S.S. Salem itself is giving us the filming location! We're even staying aboard the ship in the officer’s quarters while we’re filming! That’s an adventure in itself, and we hope you’ll join us for a night (check out the incentives)!
With the U.S.S. Salem, the creative team, and our story, we've already had 3 different offers for worldwide distribution before even rolling cameras!
But before we can distribute we need to make a film! That's why we need your help! We just need an additional $9,000.00 for the essentials like food and special effects!
So check out the rewards and get involved in this project! With your help, we will make a film that will be seen worldwide…
