About this project
What are we using the funds for?
We're using the funds raised through Kickstarter for production. Principle photography is scheduled for 10 days beginning in November. We're shooting on the RED EPIC and are utilizing a huge rural junkyard and bunker-like underground sets. Not to mention zombie hordes!
This will be our team's fourth feature together, and that means a few things to you as our investor:
We've been here and successfully done it before.
Made movies that is. This will be our first Kickstarter. In this industry, there is an appreciation for one's craft that comes with experience. This can be one of the most powerful tools in a filmmaker's arsenal. Beyond that, film-making can be an overwhelming experience, and one that rarely goes according to plan. Rest assured that we've overcome all obstacles before and will use that experience to bring EAT to full fruition.

"Trap" - 2010

It's a Labor of Love
One thing that we can honestly say about this project, we are doing it because we love it, and that is a very powerful thing. It means rather then following an equation that earns the most money, we will make the movie that the fans want to see. How do we know what fans want to see? We are those fans.
The cast and crew are already hard at work.

So... Why Kickstarter?
We’ve been lucky enough to be funded via traditional means several times in the past, and are very grateful to those investors without whom we would have nothing. Having said that, it comes at a heavy price: compromise. We want to make the movie we set out to make. We want to make the movie you want to see.

EATING UP THE PRESS
Absolutely, if you think someone else would appreciate the incentive more than we welcome it. Just give us the necessary information and we will get the rewards to the right people. Double kudos for being awesome by not only helping us out, but also getting a nice gift for a friend!
It pays for more awesomeness. Effects and locations aren’t cheap and we would love to offer up some more truly wicked gore and epic locations.
Sadly no, and we wish that wasn't the case. The incentive covers wardrobe, effects, food and a once in a life time experience. That being said, the production will do everything in its power to help accommodate you in any way we can.
Simply put, nothing. You pay nothing if the goal is not met, and we go back to the drawing board and see if there’s something we can do to make you want this movie more.
We think it’s really important to interact with you. While there will be backer exclusive content, we’ll also be offering some rewards just for following our progress and staying involved. Some of those freebies are as follows: Live tweeting with the producer, director and stars; Filmmaker tips/tutorials on building everything from zombies to blood cannons; Weekly updates from the set.
