Forever Hollywood is a short horror film about a group of young actors. Sent to participate in a team-building camping retreat at the request of their producer, the group sets out to capture behind the scenes footage to promote their upcoming TV series. The retreat takes a dark turn as one by one, the actors fall prey to the spread of a Zombie virus and even the living begin to turn on one another. A hero arises, and a mad dash for survival ensues.

What We Need
Our total budgetary need is $5,000 for the production, editing, and distribution of our film.
The majority of this budget will be used towards:
- Craft Services (feeding our cast and crew for three days during principle filming)
- Props, Make-up, and Set Dressing (blood and BRAAAINZ and stuff)
- Special FX (Hello, Zombie Raven!)
- Sound Recording and Design
- Packaging and Distribution to Film Festivals
EVERY DOLLAR goes to production, post-production and distribution. We are not looking to make any profit from your contributions; we're just filmmakers who want to make a good (and really fun!) movie.
Another Zombie film? Why? What makes THIS one different? The reality is that there is a huge void for women producers, directors, and writers, especially in the genre of horror. That HAS to change. Bonus: Spoiler alert, this film features a strong female protagonist.
