How To Befriend The Monster Under Your Bed

 written & directed by Aaron Jackson

When a little girl comes across a set of tips & tricks to help her make friends, she starts following them to form a bond with the monster that lives under her bed; ranging from reading your monster bedtime stories to being sure to leave the room when it becomes aggressive, all the tips are helpful and drive her towards a new friend! 

Join us in creating a film that will be translated into multiple languages such as English, Spanish, French and Chinese, making it so many children all across the world will be able to start befriending the monster under their bed. 

What We'll Be Doing With Your Donations

Budget Pie Chart
Budget Pie Chart

We will be putting your generous donations towards 4 main sources: 

  •  LOCATIONS We have been lucky enough to find a fantastic home that is being rented out to us for filming in. Of course, renting this space costs money.
  •  PRODUCTION DESIGN To bring the story to life, our fantastic production designer Aya Khablawi will be creating not only a child's bedroom within our location, but inventing monsters based off of our concept artist's Timothy Xia's original designs. The monsters will be unlike any monsters you've seen before, and will be operated by our crew members Katri Hamina and Timothy Kandra. 
  •  DISTRIBUTION & EMERGENCIES We plan on taking this short film the festival route and making sure that lots of people see it so they know the tips & tricks that we do for befriending monsters - and festivals have submission fees. We also want to have some money set aside in case we run into any unexpected purchases while on set. 
  •  CRAFTY We gotta feed our cast & crew while on set!

This short is one that everyone on the cast & crew is really excited to bring to you all, and we hope you'll help us get there by supporting our Kickstarter. Thank you so much for your time!

Risks and challenges

We feel secure in our cast & crews ability to adhere to their responsibilities and create this film in a timely manner, but of course filming in a rented space comes with the risk of needing to pay more money than initially planned in case we need to do reshoots.
