STORY SUMMARY: CASE #21

Case #21: The Slender Man is a short film centered on the mythical Slender Man. The story follows a Private Investigator who is hired to unravel a mystery that has been plaguing a small mid-western town. Every twenty years or so a group of children mysteriously vanish, a few adults end up dead, and no clues are left behind to explain the tragic occurrences. Our Private Investigator is lead through a web of intrigue, horror, and supernatural mysteries that will shake him to his very core. Will he solve the case or become just another victim?

WHO WE ARE

This production is being spearheaded by an upstart Chicago based production company, SQUARED MEDIA. Led by Christopher Cowley (Director & Editor) and Randall Cropp (Lead Writer & Actor) they each bring years of experience in their particular field to the project. The film will be shot utilizing indie film standard equipment (Canon T2I for most scenes) and will be casting actors out of the Chicago/Northern Illinois area.

All donations received through this kickstarter campaign will be applied directly to the project. Keep in mind we do have a lot of what we need already however your donations will allow us luxuiries to complete the film the way it deserves. With that stated here is a breakdown of where you can expect your donations to apply:

  • Equipment - Extra dollys, jibs, mounts, makeup, and costumes.
  • Actor Reimbursement - A great film with terrible acting is good for nobody. Your pledges will allow us to bring in great local talent at a rate everyone can be comfortable with.
  • Viral Campaign/Web Hosting - Case 21 will have a viral campaign backing its entire production to drum up anticipation as well as raise awareness and deepen the story. Your donations will keep our websites online.
  • Festival Entry - If this film ends up as good as we believe we will seek entry into numerous festivals all over the world. Entering these festivals is not cheap, but the exposure is worth it!

FAQ

  • In any adaptation there are going to be things you keep and change. For our short film we are keeping all of the characteristics and traits that make the monster iconic, while adding our own to make him unique as well.

  • This is a dramatic thriller with horror elements. So if you hate blood/gore/jump scares... Don't worry, you'll like our film. But it will be dark and there will be scary moments.

  • No. Randall played our stand in Slender Man for the viral trailer. He WILL be re-cast and his appearance will be very different.
