If we hit 6k everyone that backs the film will get their name in the credits!!
David has lost his girlfriend and his mind. Capps Crossing is his only refuge. When six hikers make the mistake of choosing Capps Crossing to spend the weekend, David will stop at nothing to make sure they never come back.
This film combines one of my favorite places to camp with an activity called Geocaching. Add some thrills, chills and some blood and you have Capps Crossing.
Geocaching is a real-world outdoor treasure hunting game. Players try to locate hidden containers, called geocaches, using GPS-enabled devices and then share their experiences online. Find out more at http://www.opencaching.us. Geocaching is a fun, family safe activity...usually.
While spending several three-day weekends with my friends at Capps Crossing in the Eldorado National forest, I slowly started to build the story for the film based around this very unique place to camp and explore.
I have personally supported 16 Kickstarter projects and love helping other people bring their ideas to life.

I'm excited about CAPPS CROSSING - aside from backing the film, how can I help?
Like our video at the top of the page and tweet it out to your friends; add us on Facebook and invite your friends to as well.
When do you plan to release the film?
We are planning our theatrical release in 2014 and will submit to film festivals as well. After that, we'll release online to iTunes, On Demand and more...
What is your Kickstarter goal? What will the money go to?
Our basic goal is to raise $5,000. Kickstarter takes 5% for providing the platform and making this all run smoothly, and Amazon Payments takes 3 to 5% to process all the pledges. Every penny beyond that goes towards the film budget. 5k is what it will take to make the film with cast and crew time being generously donated for the sake of making this happen. Your Kickstarter pledges will be used for the following:
- Location permits for the national forest runs about $400 a day for at least 6 days ($2400).
- Production insurance will run about $1200.
- Food and gas for the cast and crew. We've got to at least feed them!
- Rental equipment necessary to facilitate remote location shooting such as generators, back-up camera equipment and batteries.
- Tents, camping gear, wardrobe, make-up, special effects, props and every little thing that can and will crop up.
- Read on to learn about paying the cast and crew.
Damn straight! The more pledges we raise, the easier it will be for us to make the film, do post production, and market and distribute the film... but most of all, PAY THE CAST AND CREW! The first goal is to simply make the film, but I'd really like to pay every person that acts or works to make this film happen. In the long run paying people is simply better. Any pledges we raise over the initial 5k will increase the quality of the film in a number of ways including being able to:
- Pay the main crew to work on the film.
- Pay the cast to work on the film.
- Increase the number of days we shoot to get things exactly the way we want them.
- Improve the special effects.
If we hit $6,000, everyone that makes a pledge of $1 or more will get their name in the end credits of the film, and yes, you can increase your pledge to help us get there! See below.
What happens if your goal isn't reached in time? If we don’t reach our pledge goal, Capps Crossing receives no funding for production and your credit card will not be charged. You can help ensure we make our goal by getting your friends, family and even strangers to pledge.
Can backers increase their pledges?
Yes! If you have already pledged, and are signed in to your account, instead of a green “Back This Project” button on our page, there will be a blue “Manage Your Pledge” button. Enter a new amount or choose a new reward.
What do I get for pledging?
Our deepest thanks, and depending on the pledge amount, various Capps Crossing movie swag rewards which are listed in the right sidebar.
When will I receive my rewards?
Some rewards will be given immediately after the campaign is successful, such as thank yous and access to the members section of the movie website. Some rewards involve both tangible and intangible items which will be delivered at different times. We will distribute all rewards according to the dates shown below the reward category with the exception of scripts and movie copies which will be distributed after the theatrical release.
How much is shipping?
Shipping is included for rewards delivered to the U.S. Unfortunately, we have to charge a fee for international shipping.
How will you know where to send my rewards, or what t-shirt size I wear?
After the Kickstarter campaign has ended we will send you a Kickstarter message (which automatically forwards to the email address you gave Kickstarter) requesting all the necessary information. We'll send out a survey to get your info including t-shirt size if needed.
Can I give a reward as a gift?
Gifting a reward is awesome! After the campaign, when we message you for details on your rewards, you can then give us the information for the person you wish to gift.
How can I contact you? I want more information…

HERE'S HOW KICKSTARTER WORKS
Kickstarter is the world's largest funding platform for creative projects. Every month, tens of thousands of people pledge millions of dollars in money to creative projects in dozens of categories.
A person who supports a project is called a "backer." The process of giving money to the project is called a "pledge."
In return for your pledge, we (the creators of the campaign) are able to offer "rewards," depending on the amount you pledge.
Team member spotlight
We are pleased to announce that Aimee Carr has joined our team as production coordinator. She has a wealth of experience in features, tv and commercials. She recently won an Effie award in advertising for a campaign she worked on. IMDB Link.

That's it. Thanks so much for helping us make this film!
Risks and challenges
As with all film production there are risks to completing the film. Scheduling conflicts, loss of locations and equipment failures are all possibilities. A bigger risk is the loss of an actor key to the film before shooting is completed. All possibilities will be explored to fix the situation. The worst case scenario is we have to start shooting all over. On such a small budget we'd have to raise additional funds to complete the project. We'll still be able to provide most of the rewards even if the film isn't completed. The obvious one that won't be delivered is a copy of the film.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
