I'm Alex Meyers. I'm working on a feature-length psychological horror film called Wear that I wrote with my friend Danny. We're filmmakers living in New York. Over the past five years we’ve worked on several projects together, mostly comedies. We decided to switch genres this time because there's so much cool and exciting stuff you can do with horror movies. They can take you on a roller coaster ride, make you scream, give you nightmares...
Why we're making Wear...
Plain and simple, we couldn’t resist the challenge of making a unique and exciting horror movie.
Wear plays on psychological themes, kind of like The Shining or Session 9. We constructed the plot to favor unsettling tension and mystery over extreme gore so you never really know when something frightening is going to happen. That's our favorite kind of scary movie!
The story is cool, the characters feel real, plus there's a beautiful fashion element to the visuals. We love the whole concept and we think you will too. Please watch our teaser trailer (above) to get a better sense of the vibe we're going for.
Also, check out our theatrical poster. It features a gorgeous image created by Portland artist Misha Ashton (http://mishaashton.com/) and really reflects the mood of Wear – beautiful and scary.
A short overview of our movie:
In brief, Wear is about an actress named Madison who takes part in a fashion shoot about a model that was murdered in the 1970s.
At the beginning of the movie, Madison is in New York City struggling through one bad audition after another. Her dreams of success are all but dashed until a bizarre out of body experience changes her life forever. The paranormal event leads her into the dark world of eccentric fashion photographer, Dieder. Dieder is instantly enamored with Madison based on her striking resemblance to Olivia, a model who was killed by her photographer during a photo shoot in 1974. Convinced that the two were destined to meet, he asks her to portray this model in a project he's been planning for years.
At first, Madison is hesitant to accept the role. But her intense fascination with the story ultimately shrouds her better judgment and she agrees to play the part. Gradually, Madison begins to feel less and less like herself. When she discovers that the shoot will take place in the woods where the model died, Madison experiences inexplicably happiness instead of fear.
Dieder and Madison travel to the isolated shoot location with Dieder’s editor Claude and his moody makeup artist, Justine. After their arrival, Madison and Dieder become progressively disturbed by the sense that someone else is inhabiting their bodies. Unsure whether they are in the presence of spirits or merely obsessed with reliving a dark tale, the four soon find themselves absorbed by the murderous echos of the past.

We are paying for some stuff out of pocket, but we can't afford to make it on our own. So the money you give goes directly to production.
- $4000 goes to our director of photography and camera equipment.
- $2000 goes towards hiring a sound recording artist.
- $1500 goes to renting a location in the Poconos where we can film. We have an INCREDIBLE location picked out.
