You've probably seen hundreds of Star Wars, Star Trek, & Lord of the Rings amateur productions in your time, haven't you?
Every other franchise has been done to death hasn't it?
I'm certain you, like us, think it's about time someone did a Fan Film of Hitman?
So - as far as we know - you now have an opportunity to contribute to the first ever Web Series dedicated to the exploits of good old Mr 47.
We love the Hitman games, but are also fans of the movie. If you're reading this, then you must also be a fan of one or the other, or hopefully both too.
Our crew is a mixture of varying ages, differing life experiences, & diverse skill-sets.
Our FX Guy is so f***ing talented, we should kill him for not already earning thousands of pounds a day, but lucky for us; he isn't! His secret recipe for theatrical blood is probably the best I've ever seen.
I'll just massage his ego a little more by saying, he is probably the most talented member of the team (don't let it go to your head Darrol). This said, the rest of the team have managed to get their talents recognised on some level in their respective fields!
We're making it whatever happens, but you must agree surely, it deserves to be done well?
This is purely a fan film, we're not out to make any money, we just want to have some fun & give the Hitman fans something to grin at. If you help us, we're obviously going to have to reward you for making it all possible aren't we?
There are perks available to suit every budget. So, whatever amount you feel like contributing today; it will be greatly appreciated.
Convinced already? Then, check out the list of available perks on the right hand side of the screen & pick the one which appeals to you most.
If you're still undecided, then please read on.
What We Need & What You Get
We have most of the basic essentials to get started: camera, lights, sound equipment, etc. We have a small selection of props & as you will see from our trailer; access to many weapons! This is why we're reasonably confident we can make this project whatever happens.
However, the script is quite ambitious, the cast reasonably large, & is set in numerous locations. So here's a breakdown of where some of the money will be spent:
- Costumes for the main cast.
- Hiring out sets/locations.
- Lots of Special Effects paraphernalia for Darrol!
- Cost of logistics.
- Light refreshments for cast/crew on long shooting days.
Every penny we receive will be spent on making this project more appealing to the fans.
If we reach our target; Agent 47 will be wearing a Tailor Made Suit (as he should) rather than the off-the-peg one in the trailer if we don't.
If we receive the full budget we have some fantastic locations in mind for the action, if we don't it will be a case of using what we already have access to; friends & families properties.
If we can kit out Darrol properly, we can really go to town on the special effects, making the action extremely realistic, but if we don't it's down to "CGI".
So you see now, why your contribution could make all the difference between a "Good" & an "Amazing" homage to the Hitman franchise.
Although as a Production Team we are newbies, we do hope to make totally original works one day. Our talents as individuals could not make this project possible, but now we've come together as a team, we truly believe we can create a memorable piece of movie art.
The youngest member of our Team, Allan has written, directed & starred in many "Fan Inspired Projects" & is just about to release his first original web series "Waterside".
If you help us make this thing possible; not only will you have a couple more hours of seeing Agent 47 doing what he does best, not only will you have aided in entertaining a group of under-represented fans, not only will you have helped to restore balance between the games & the movie, but you may also have helped a small team with big ambitions to get their foot on the first rung of the ladder to making "Movies, real fans want to see".
We plan to begin shooting in the first quarter of 2014 & have the whole thing filmed by mid to late Summer. Then it should only take a couple of months to edit the whole thing together.
Realistically speaking, you can expect to see the first episode of "Hitman: Vengeance" in 10 -12 months time, but if you help us; it will be well worth the wait!
Terms & Conditions Of The Perks
Obviously, some of the physical perks will not be available until shooting has started at the earliest, whilst others will not be available until everything is wrapped up. But be assured we will dispatch your goodies at the earliest opportunity. Integrity means a lot to us, so we want to assure you, we will honour our commitment to you for making it all possible.
