Now, nearly 36 years later, the Minerva Monster will be unveiled once again. Featuring in-depth interviews with law enforcement, media personnel and witnesses, Minerva Monster aims to retell the Cayton’s story as it never has been before. Against the backdrop of small-town America a myth will become reality.
The documentary film is directed by Seth Breedlove, and produced by Jesse Morgan and Alan Megargle. Minerva Monster is the first in a series of documentaries called Small Town Monsters. Setting aside all the drama, and preamble of previous “monster” documentaries, Minerva Monster will tell the story through witness interviews; the real story, in the words of those who lived it.
This particular Kickstarter campaign is designed to assist in the production of the DVD's and costs associated with making the film available in various streaming venues. We greatly appreciate your interest in helping us make this film available in as many places as possible. Thanks for taking part!
Risks and challenges
The risks and challenges associated with Minerva Monster are relatively low. From the start this project was funded out-of-pocket by the film makers. In truth, this movie was sort of the definition of "guerrilla film-making".
Having said that, there are challenges involved in any project. Currently, our chief obstacle is completion of the project as a whole by May. While we are confident this goal is attainable, we are also adamant about producing the greatest movie we can. Not just a good one that we manage to get in under deadline.
Our guarantee is that, in the end, Minerva Monster will be the best movie we can produce. We hope to meet our deadline but this particular goal will always come behind the overall quality of the film.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
