My name is Michael Subjack and I'm a graduate film student at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA. I've been a filmmaker since I was 14. I've worked on numerous projects and now I need your help for my biggest one yet, a feature-film adaptation of the TV series, Eerie Indiana.
Eerie Indiana was a show that ran for one season on NBC during the 1991-92 season. Although it had a clever premise and Hollywood pedigree behind it, it was unable to find an audience during its initial run. However, the show has built a considerable cult following since then and it's a concept that will translate well in today's climate.
My campaign is for the opening scene of my feature-length script, which takes place after the events of the show. This scene is going to be huge. The success of this campaign will allow me to shoot it at the scale it deserves and will show Hollywood and the world that everyone is definitely ready for Eerie Indiana.
I should note that while this is an opening scene to a feature-length film, it's in essence a condensed episode of the TV show. It introduces (or re-introduces) us to the characters, the enviornment and the current weird occurence in Eerie; a witch robbing the town of its youth. By the end of the scene, they will have defeated her, so it's something that has it's own beginning and ending and will play very well on its own.
What We Need & What You Get:
I'm asking for a sum of $90,000, which will go to every level of this project to ensure it's done right. This requires a large crew, talented cast, elaborate sets, make-up, special effects and extensive post-production. Eerie Indiana has a sharp premise that will fit in the Hollywood system very well. This opening scene needs that "Hollywood" polish and production value to properly show that.
There is a risk of not making our goal but we're prepared for that. Being film students actually does have its advantages at times and one of those is the ability to cut corners and find a way to make your vision a reality with limited funds. This is not the most ideal situation but if you make a donation and we don't make our goal, rest assured the shoot will still happen at a reduced scale. It will be a quality product regardless.
To thank you for your generosity, we're offering a number of perks, including the sign featured in the video, which is a spot-on replica from the one seen in the TV show.
Your help is genuinely appreciated. Let's make Eerie Indiana a reality! Thank you everyone!
