"Just Killing" is a dark comedy slasher film that tells the story of several college students who hire a clown as a practical joke for their friend's birthday. Little do they know that the night's entertainment is a serial killing clown, who's responsible for a recent killing on their campus, and once they make a joke out of his performance, things take a deadly turn. Soon, the night of a a birthday celebration and a cat fight, turns into a night of bloodshed, twisted jokes and a fight for survival.
We’ve set our goal at the minimum it will take us to shoot this movie which is $10,000. We would like to reach $15,000 which would help cover the application fees for the film festivals we plan on sending the film too. The budget will be extremely tight. We’re filming on locations donated by friends, asking for favors and occasionally begging. We’ll do what it takes to get this film made.
When you make a pledge it raises the level of quality of our movie and lowers the number of times we need to rely on the kindness of others. It brings our goal of completing a high quality movie on a low budget that much more attainable.
If we exceed our goal, it will all go into making an even better movie.
How Indiegogo Works:
You choose how much you want to pledge and pick a perk. At the end of our campaign we pay Indiegogo a 4% fee from the money we’ve raised. If we don't reach our goal, we have to pay 9%. You can see how important it is that we reach our goal!
The biggest risk with any small movie like this is getting lost in the mass of other films hitting the market. That’s where our Executive Producers come in. They have been involved in releasing movies small and large and have the contacts we need to find the right distribution partner. With their guidance, we hope to premiere at a top tier film festival and build from the buzz we get from that.
Where Is The Money Going:
Locations, renting a camera that produce a theatrical picture (HD is much better than blurry video), and to send the film off to a plethora of film festivals and even to iTunes, Amazon, and Vimeo. Very important.
I’m putting money into the movie and everyone else is working at for free. We’re doing this because we love film and thought it would be a good opportunity to bring an original piece to life and show off our many talents. Our locations will all be donated by people we know. Our crew is going to be bare bones. Bare bones but highly skilled.
I’m an indie filmmaker and have a lot of experience getting a great result on a small budget.
