What We Need & What You Get
We are looking to raise $1,000,000 to film this feature length movie. 100% of the money raised will go into the budget. Tom is an experienced Director and Producer and has a capable team surrounding him that are set to move into action once the budget is secured.
Should we raise more than what we have targeted then Tom will be able to enhance the already incredible FX shots we already have planned for the film and maybe we can even add some more names to the cast as well. This will all depend on you. If we don't raise enough to meet our goal then we will use the funds we do raise to entice private investors and or distributors to jump onboard and help us reach our goal so we can move into pre-production.
In the end our plan is to put together a film that could potentially have a theatrical release and we know it will do some major damage on the DVD front when it's released. We fully expect Tom Savini's Death Island to become a staple in the zombie genre for years to come.
We have many great perks for those of you that do get involved and help us realize this dream project of ours. Everything from cool film swag and props, having your name listed in the credits, a shot at a small role in the film and maybe even the chance to accompany Tom Savini and the cast of crew of the film at the red carpet premiere.
