First off I want to personally thank you for checking out our page-I’m Jonathan Straiton writer/director of the award winning horror comedy Night of Something Strange. I’m super excited to launch our first crowdfunding campaign for our new horror action epic Johnny Z. We've partnered with Black Mandala (Inbred, What the Waters Left Behind) who will be overseeing worldwide distribution for the film. Together we have contributed 15k of our own money and now seek your help for the additional 15k for production costs in exchange for EXCLUSIVE perks you will NOT be able to get anywhere else, EVER again!
“Johnny Z” is a horror action genre feature film about a half human, half zombie named Johnny who, under the guidance of a martial arts master seeks vengeance on the evil corporation that created him.
It’s “Land of the Dead” meets “The Raid!”
Our Partners Black Mandala (What the Waters Left Behind and Inbred) will be handling worldwide distribution for Johnny Z.
I'm a firm believer in great success doesn't come easy. I often say that a filmmakers job is solving problems 99% of the time and that 1% is actually making films. I think that's what makes or breaks you- you've have to be ready to quickly troubleshoot any and every problem that comes your way. My team and I have seen our share of risk and challenges, and while they don't always pay off we still come back to fight the good fight! I can proudly say we have always finished what we started.
ALL or NOTHING! We budgeted exactly what would be needed to make this film. So if we don't reach our goal of 15k, then there's no reason to keep any less. We strive for quality production and quality rewards and we know exactly what that takes.
We understand not everyone can support Johnny Z with money, but there are plenty of other ways you can help!
Thank you for taking the time to check out the campaign!
Don't forget to spread the word on social media! We cannot do it without your support!
