ABOUT OUR CAMPAIGN
We have officially launched our Kickstarter Campaign for our new film 'Blackburn' which will run until Friday August 23rd at midnight and we are hoping for your support. There are excellent rewards for individuals in the London, ON area like attending the red carpet CAST & CREW SCREENING and more. Our goal with this campaign is to raise at least $5,000.00 CDN on Kickstarter and hopefully, with your generous support, we will surpass that goal to get us that much closer to our $40,000.00 CDN budget the film requires and expedite the films completion and release. We have currently secured over 40% of the budget through private investors so there is still a ways to go and is why we are asking for your help! This is a short campaign so don't miss out and be a part of it!
ABOUT THE FILM
As an experiment in filmmaking this film is 60% scripted and 40% improv to allow our talented improv actors lead by Jim Kelly (FM96, Shut the Front Door Improv) to add realism and an air of fun comedy to the terrifying story. The entire story is structured from beginning to end with a solid storyline but with freedom to move with dialogue. This supernatural horror movie is a fully co-operative project with everyone on the cast and crew investing their time and talents to this film for a small fraction of standard day rates on a micro budget of $40,000.00. 80% of the film will employ many in camera, practical makeup and visual effects techniques to expedite the post process for a much quicker post process. We are anticipating to begin and complete the twelve days of principal photography in late August 2019 and moving directly into post production for a completion of the film no later than December 2019 to begin a festival run in early 2020 and generate buzz. During this time we will seek international distribution through our network of industry contacts developed over the years. Alternatively if you would rather become an private investor for the film which you can share in the film's revenues that information can be found HERE.
A team of paranormal investigators with their own tv show “Ghost Hunt” who have been faking and exaggerating their “paranormal experiences” for years find out that the network is planning on cancelling the show if ratings don’t improve. Time is running out to film their last episode of the season and try to save the show with desperation setting in. The team finds themselves en route to their final location to film the last episode when a set of mysterious circumstances leads them to the isolated BLACKBURN MANOR. With no other option, the group decides to film the last episode at BLACKBURN and fake what they need to for what could be their final show ever but soon realize that this house is actually very, very haunted.
The crew quickly discover that none of them are really up to the task when facing an actual haunting as strange and terrifying things begin to happen. Little do they know, one of the malevolent spirits inhabiting the house has sinister intentions for one in the group and will stop at nothing to get what it wants.
