WE ASK YOUR HELP
IN MAKING A GREAT LITTLE MOVIE
THE WALL is written and directed by the team that brought you Zombie Dearest, one of the smartest low-budget horror/comedies of the last five years Two-time Best Feature Winner, Two-time Audience Favorite winner, Zombie Dearest was embraced by festivals, critics and filmmakers alike and is featured as one of the very few recommended picks in the soon-to-be released Zombie Movie Encyclopedia 2000-2010 by Peter Dendle.
Still, you might never have heard of Zombie Dearest. Thats because with little independent filmmakers like us, every penny goes directly into the production. We wont be saturating the airwaves with ads. Still, we think THE WALL is the real deal, a shot at success the old-fashioned way a great film, through festivals and word of mouth, finding its audience.
Come along for the ride.
Please consider supporting our production of THE WALL. For little more than it cost you to walk out on Epic Movie, you can be part of a completely original, completely independent filmmaking team.
And what promises to be one helluva ride.

The Wall is the story of a man who more and more of us are getting to know. Hes a man whos worked his entire life to create a home in this case a house, thats taken from him by an unscrupulous financier. When faced with the unthinkable prospect of homelessness, he moves into a long, narrow space between the walls and crosses into a reality written in the margins of his own life; where access to the life he knew is afforded by a peep-hole that looks out into his old living room. When the Man is forced into an impossible choice between saving a stranger and hanging onto his secret home, we discover the identity of this man and the gruesome secret hes been keeping.
The Wall lives and breathes between the walls and between the ears of a simple man who, more than anything, just wants his home. In this claustrophobic space, our film becomes the study of a face that comes in and out of our view in the flicker of an unreliable lamp. We accompany the man into a world between worlds, at once safe from the worries and complications of modern society and secluded from the comforts of human companionship. Light and dark, inside and out, The Wall is an exploration of how we view our life, how we process our death.
WE NEED YOUR HELP
$7000 will cover the hard costs of production and post-production, costs that we cannot cover in any way other than paying for them, such as camera and lighting equipment rental, designing, building and dressing a custom set that will meet our ambitious shooting scheme, purchasing hard-drives and memory cards or tape for digital media, renting a location for 2 days, feeding the cast and crew who are working for free, paying for editing, color correction, sound design and post-sound studio time, and final formatting for festivals and release. Seven thousand, that's what it will cost to make this little classic and we promise you a film that holds up against any production, especially in content, originality and impact.
Making a Better Horror Movie
Scream Clock Productions is a tight, four-person filmmaking team, forged in the making of Zombie Dearest, drawing even tighter to make The Wall. David Kemker will direct, his wife Wendy Jewell will produce, their daughter Slater will shoot and edit, and co-writer Mark Cavanagh will Exec Produce. We are teaming with film critic and writer Will Colby and graphic novelist Anastasia Vousikas, both of KillingBoxx.com - who will drive promotion of the film on their website and beyond. The partnership strikes a template for how to get an original, un-tampered-with movie made in a down economy when the bottom has fallen out of independent film production and distribution.
