If you're like me and my friends, you've become tired of the film industry spewing out the same old films over an over again with nothing more than a cast change.....or remaking films not because the story's great, but to squeeze as many dimes as they can out of it...or basing a film on an old tv show and messing it up terribly...
How many times have you heard the book was better than the film?
What we plan to create is the exact opposite of all of those things! The Witchworks trilogy is such a different and amazing tale that we believe you'll absolutely love it! - not just from reading it (if you do, the first book we're basing this film on is on Kindle), but seeing it as well. Just about all films made have a script and screenplay written for them, but for us, the book is the script and our guide! If you're into Indiana Jones, Dark Shadows and well-written myseries, then this is really something up your alley!
That's right! From what is said by characters to locations to any given scene - we want you to experience it all! With your help, we'll be able to obtain much better film and audio equipment, expand location possibilities, hire more crew members to help with everything from sound, wardrobe, special effects, legal matters and more!
And the sountrack? What can we say short of "It's going to be incredibly beautiful" and we'd really like to get other music in the movie from bands like Avenged Sevenfold, Ra, Big Wreck, Marillion, House of Lords, September Sky and more!
It's our hope that we can reach our goal and bring you something truely entertaining, but at the same time, inspire other indie filmmakers to do the same - something different and memorable!
It's time for the film world to change and with your help, we can be a part of making that happen.
Thank you so much for your time and consideration. Your contribution will help make something amazing (and sorely needed) come to light! And if we raise more than our goal, all of the extra will go toward production of the second part of the trilogy - which would indeed be awesome!
Synopsis from the actual book:
Judy Lee Roy was looking forward to a nice, relaxing summer. One more year of college and she would have to get a career and live in a totally adult world. The simple request put to her by a close friend was supposed to give her something to occupy her time, just for the summer.
Little did she know that she was about to become immersed in a world of fear, a world populated with demons and tragedies, and an entity so relentlessly evil and vindictive that it would affect her life for years to come. The adventure starts in her hometown and reaches out to the four corners of the world.
Risks and challenges
With making two full-length films before this one came A LOT of experience in resolving issues such as rescheduling, re-casting, dealing with permits, clearing legal matters with musicians and individuals, scouting for locations, correcting technical problems, wardrobe malfunctions...the list goes on and on!
But in taking on those difficulties also came a much better sense of how to deal with them, long before they become issues the next time around. That is why, with your help, we can broaden our team even more to help prevent most of those things from happening this time around - if at all - and bring you a film that is both truely unique and incredible.....and on time!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
