About this project

Hi!

Tired of watching found-footage horror films with minimal plot?  Us too.  Love gore but wish that more attention was paid to character?  We're in the same boat.  That is why we want to make a film focusing on the psychological aspect of horror while refusing to skimp on the blood and guts.  We have a script, we've scouted locations here in Boise, Idaho, and we've begun talking to local actors about making our dream happen, but something is missing, and that's where you come in.  

We need funding.  Not much--what we are setting out to make isn't a big-budget horror film, but rather a calling card to show what it is we have to offer.  We need a new camera, lighting equipment, a few extra costumes and prosthesis, and cash on hand to cover emergencies and make sure our volunteer actors are well fed.  

With your help, my partner and I can add our voices to the world of horror, and help ensure that PG-13 remains something respectable horror fans snicker at. 

Thank you,

John Barrie

Risks and challenges

My partner and I are first time film makers. I believe strongly in our ability to complete this project. As I have mentioned, we already have a completed script and some local actors in mind, as well as the location for the shoot. However, the step after filming--getting the movie shown locally, and into the hands of the type of people who will support us for longer films--will be a difficult one. The main risk we face is that this will end up being nothing more than a pet project that goes nowhere. But we believe in our material, and we hope you do too.

  3. Select this reward

    Pledge $15 or more About $15

    The chances of making it in the film industry are slim, but I'd like to think our band of misfits has something to contribute, and one day we'll be the people who you heard of way back when. In addition to a poster and a mention in the credits, you will receive a copy of the script signed by the directors and the entire cast. Hopefully that will mean something someday.

  4. Select this reward

    Pledge $25 or more About $25

    We love all our sponsors, but I have a soft spot for $25 donors because this is where I mathematically begin to believe our film is possible (25 x 100 = 2,500, or "totally do-able."). In addition to the above rewards, a $25 donation will get you a DVD copy of the film.

    Sure, it's great to get a film like this off of the ground, and all the prizes at the 5, 10, 15 and 25 dollar level are cool. But wouldn't you enjoy them more at a party? For $50, you will receive everything mentioned above, as well as a special invitation to join the cast and crew for the release party.

    Pledge $100 or more About $100

    Are you jealous of that person who has a real Stormtrooper helmet their uncle snagged off set? While our film is no "Star Wars," it may well be a precursor to bigger and better things. For a $100 contribution, in addition to everything listed above we'll set aside a prop or piece of wardrobe from the film for you to keep. We can't guarantee if it will be a bloody head, a bloody arm, or a bloody...something else. But it will be bloody, yours, and one of a kind.

    This is it. The big one. Our sugar daddy, if you will. In addition to a rad movie poster, a signed script, a DVD of the film, an invitation to the release party, and a bloody prop to call your own, the first donor to pledge a whopping 1/10th of our production cost will get a special thanks in our opening credits, and what's more you will be invited to send us your own pictures to adorn the victim's house. Yes, you or your friend's face will be sharing picture frame space with our dead girl. Our most unique offering.
