The Mothman of Point Pleasant is a documentary that unravels the legendary tales of a manlike, flying creature that stalked Point Pleasant during 1966 and 1967. The film sets out to clearly define the timeline of events that began in November of 1966 and culminated with the collapse of the Silver Bridge in 1967. It features multiple interviews with many original Mothman sighting witnesses, local citizens, and members of the media.

Invasion on Chestnut Ridge, the fifth Small Town Monsters film, will delve into the bizarre history of a 100-mile stretch of land where unusual activity has been taking place since the 1960's. Beginning with the Kecksburg UFO crash of 1965, the film will trace the history of a region full of reports of events that stretches the fabric of our reality...

This Kickstarter will be used to fund costs associated with post-production on The Mothman of Point Pleasant, and all production costs for Invasion on Chestnut Ridge. This means any money received will go to funding the rental of our camera equipment, travel costs, and purchasing of any special effects software or post-production software that we need. 

We fully intend on continuing to up the ante from film to film visually and in terms of our storytelling abilities. That's where your financial support comes in. We can rent better equipment, and afford to learn new techniques through this Kickstarter campaign. 

Risks and challenges

Honestly, at this point we've produced three, highly respected films about cryptids. There isn't much of a risk when it comes to backing Small Town Monsters. However, there are multiple challenges we'll face during production of both of these films. This is the first time ever we plan on fully producing two films in one year. There's no doubt we'll face numerous obstacles along the way, but with your support we'll be able to take both of these films to the finish line by October.

We can't thank you all enough for continuing to support each of our films. As long as you continue backing them, we'll continue making them!
