About this project

Tentatively-titled after her debut album, Age of Destruction is the inspiring story of a bad-ass grandmother who became the lead singer in her son's grindcore band.

After accidentally stumbling into the rock n roll lifestyle in 2015, she's captivated the world with her bad-ass vocals, and incredible story.  Fans will get to experience the story as it unfolds, learning about Grindmother's life and why she is so passionate about singing in a metal band. The film will also outline stories from fans who have been personally inspired by Grindmother.

Grindmother and her son plan to raise the equivalent of $8222 USD in order to bring a film crew on upcoming tours. The funds will also go toward equipment and the hiring of an editor who will assemble the film. However, the project will only proceed if funding reaches 100% of its goal by Mon, June 26 2017.

We will use the funds for:  

  • Purchase of ultra hd camera ($1850)  
  • Hiring of film crew & travel costs ($2420)  
  • Hiring an editor to make the final cut ($2590)  
  • DVD and reward manufacturing ($2000)

When will the film be released?  

Although the Kickstarter deadline is October 2019, the film will likely be released MUCH sooner.  We gave such a long deadline just in case the story is still unfolding and we want to keep filming. 

When do we get our rewards?

DVDs will ship no later than Oct 2019 (but likely much sooner). Some items (for example the etched 12" or autoographed CDs) will be delivered much sooner. Please contact us or feel free to leave questions about any of the items and we will reply asap.

Risks and challenges

We understand making a film is no easy task and our work certainly won't stop once we've raised the funds. We've been researching and preparing for months, even pestering experienced filmmakers for advice. Despite the fun nature of the band, we take it very seriously, and always honor our commitments. We love a challenge and will be working hard every step of the way.
