Space Explorers find themselves trapped inside of a low-budget movie.  They must find a way to rebuild their spaceship and escape before the credits roll or they'll be trapped in the film forever.

Alien City
Alien City

It's a silly comedy that pokes fun at movie making. While trying to escape, the Space Explorers travel through many different genres, including Western, Spy Thriller, Musical, Action, War, Film Noir, Monster Movie, and of course Science Fiction (complete with old fashion spaceship models, like the alien city above).

REWARDS CHANGE THE MOVIE

Your donations not only make this movie possible, they help shape the movie. The rewards allow you to name characters, write dialogue that will be said in the movie, and even describe a character who will be in it.

* NOTE: character names and dialogue must be family-friendly.

The Space Explorers start up a KickStarter campaign to raise the budget to rebuild their ship, so backers will be mentioned by name during the film. Plus, you can get your picture on a cardboard cutout during a crowd scene.

There's also a few more normal rewards, like a DVD of Daniel Appelt's short films. Below is a trailer that highlights some of his earlier films.

FUNDING A COMMUNITY PROJECT

The movie involves spaceships, aliens, knights, castles, cowboys, horses, choreography for a musical number, city crushing giant monsters, a war scene ... it's a pretty ambitious movie to shoot for only $2,500.

But we're able to keep the budget so low because this is largely a community project.  Local filmmakers and film enthusiasts will be volunteering their time and resources.  There's a lot of talent around the Brandon, Vermont area and we'll be tapping into it to create this movie.

For details on how the $2,500 will be spent, see the Frequently Asked Questions below.

THE MOVIEMAKER

Daniel Appelt is a graduate from the Academy of Art University film school in San Francisco.  He has also worked as a freelance videographer in New York City.  Below is his most recent short film "The Date Thief" which was shot in his hometown of Brandon, Vermont using local talent and crew.

Besides a moviemaker, Daniel is also a Christian.  He wants to create Christian films, but is often bored with serious drama.  This project is an attempt to create a fun and captivating story that presents the gospel in a fresh and creative way.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

The plan is to finish up shooting by the end of September with a few pickup scenes in October and November and then finish editing by summer 2014. However, special effects may require more time. We'll provide weekly updates until the movie is completed.
