My name is Julie Geoghegan, I'm a military veteran and also a former student at the Art Institute of Dallas, where I studied Digital Filmmaking & Video Production.
I'm making a low budget independent film called Rent a Zombie, a comedy about zombies being rented to do tasks that none of us want to do: specifically meeting the parents. This film is very important to me and it's a dream of mine to be able to make it a reality.
You can help me raise the money for this movie and help bring laughter to everyone who watches it. I've spent a lot of hard thinking on this script and I think it has great potential to make a lot of people happy.
What We Need & What You Get
I need $6,000 although I could settle for $4,000 if I need to. However, $6,000 would make this film a lot easier to make. Here is the breakdown of the costs: $160 for zombie effects, $1,111 for camera and accessories, $600 to build sets, $200 compensation for each actor (although I could probably get by with $100), and $2,000 for total crew.
This movie will be hilarious and will leave you in stitches. I was extremely excited when I was writing the script (which is finished) and I'm even more excited to make this film.
If I don't reach my entire goal, I'll make do with what I have. I'll try my best to cut down on costs. This film will be made no matter how much money I'm able to raise...that's how badly I want this film to be made. I may have to make this film over a longer period of time until I can raise enough money later on, but this will be made.
Laughter is the best medicine. We all need to laugh and this film is a great way to do it. The film has a funny concept behind it and its script and execution will leave you laughing every time something reminds you of one of the scenes.
Your money will not be wasted. It will be put to great use and I will save money on as much as I can to help stretch your dollar. I'll do my best to make this movie the best it can possibly be. Nothing will be done halfway and I'll make sure your money is put to great use.
