About this project

"Jessica Forever" is a web-series about Jessica Huberman: a young, single mother who is dealing with the struggle of sobriety while she is drawn into an underworld of Vampires who know what her true purpose is.

EPISODE ONE:

 EPISODE TWO:

That was the first part of the story.

It's been 2 years since we released the first and second episodes of our series and the time has come to continue the story.

Over the months Creator Westley Cornwell has shaped the world of Jessica Forever into a universal story that follows Jessica as she becomes the baddest b*tch since Sarah Connor.

All she wants is to protect her daughter from the thing that she has become, but how does Dr. Jekyll stop Mr. Hyde?

We are passionate about this story and want to make it right. With influences ranging from Aliens to Vampire Hunter D, we have formed a 4-episode structure that completes the story we started. It begins with Jessica shedding her human skin and ends with a scene taken straight from your worst nightmare.

As it stands, this is something we cannot afford to do on our own and we need your help!

The costs of a kick-ass action-packed (Vampire!) web-series add up fast - from paying our incredibly talented actors to finalizing post-production, we have our hands full and our wallets empty. We funded the first two episodes out-of-pocket and now, with YOUR help, we can finish season one the right way!

We are currently working hard in pre-production. The scripts are written and production is scheduled to begin in September 2015, with a target release date of Halloween 2015. With your support, we can make this happen! Only your support and generosity can ensure that we're able to make these episodes, so we've come up with fun rewards to get you excited and to show our appreciation!

 We can't make these episodes without help from our wonderful actors...

The crew we have assembled will knock these new episodes out of the ballpark...

Westley Cornwell
Westley Cornwell

Writer/Director/Producer: Westley Cornwell returns to the helm for new episodes of Jessica Forever. Born in Portland, Oregon and raised on the Big Island of Hawaii, Westley has had an incredible passion for filmmaking since he was a little kid. It started with little skits and short films shot on Hi-8 Digital Camcorders and over the years has developed into a full-fledged love for the art.

Kristi Vanblaricum
Kristi Vanblaricum

Producer/Co-Writer/Marketing: New blood Kristi Vanblaricum brings her impeccable knack for organization to the crew and adds a woman's touch to the show that could otherwise be just another Vampire story.

Aaron Anderson

Co-Producer: AA brings his A game to the Jessica Forever team with his awesome organizational skills and infectious enthusiasm.

Nathan Coltrane

Director of Photography: Nathan Coltrane returns for more. His eye for great compositions is perfect for the dynamic story we have in store.

Daniel Smith

Production Sound: Daniel Smith also returns to run the boomstick for the new episodes. You can tell by the photo that he doesn't play games when it comes to capturing great sound.

Jerry Buxbaum
Jerry Buxbaum

Stunt Coordinator: Seasoned Stunt Coordinator Jerry Buxbaum brings the heat with him to the four new episodes. Blowing down doors and sending actors through walls is just a taste of what we wrote into the new episodes.

This is a just a few of the cast but we will be announcing more in the days to come!

Risks and challenges

Like any good project we will have many challenges from now until the final cut of each episode. It takes a special kind of person to deal with the issues that pop up but this isn't our first rodeo. The Portland film community is one that is very helpful when it comes to good projects, and since we have shot two episodes, we know where to go for help if the need arises.

Because we are aiming higher for these new episodes we are opening the door to new challenges, but when it comes to the cast and crew we do not let just anyone into our project. The cast and crew that are working on this project are all screened ahead of time to make sure that nothing goes wrong.

The biggest challenge we foresee is simply dealing with what life throws at us. Nobody can plan for the unpredictable events in life, but no matter what happens, we have a fantastic professional crew who can make the best out of any situation. We always strive to do the very best work we can and we will continue to hold ourselves to the highest quality of work as we did in the first and second episodes.

From the bottom of our hearts we would like to THANK YOU for your support!
