Everything has a price. The Collectors make sure you pay. The Collectors is a supernatural suspense drama. The short you see here is being developed into a pilot-- think "Ghost" meets "Dexter" meets "The Adjustment Bureau".
The Collectors is a currently 7-minute short film. This Kickstarter campaign is to pay for music licenses, shoot pickups, satisfy SAG agreements and otherwise get the film ready to enter into festivals.
The funds raised in this campaign will go to cover music licenses so we can enter festivals, cover any debts (we have a few, but not many), DVD duplication and pay our actors. All funds beyond that will go toward future production.
Risks and challenges
Every project worth doing faces challenges. What are we trying to overcome?
Aside from a few pickups and effects (both visual and sound), the short version of the film is complete. Paying for licenses and agreements will allow entry into fests, but of course it is no guarantee than it will win. Winning festivals is the first challenge.
But as worthwhile as a winning a fest is, the marketability of short film is limited. We hope to turn collectors into a bigger project. The Collectors is conceived as a TV or web-series pilot. A 30-page script is already written. But this faces substantial hurdles. Production is much more expensive and intense. Locations have to be scouted. SAG agreements have to be negotiated.
These are all problems for the future, however. The first goal is to get the short film out there. I'd like to thank you in advance for your help and support.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
