What is Kill Day?


If it was legal to kill, would you?


Kill Day is an off- beat Web Series which explores that question. It’s set in 2055 as an over-crowded Britain prepares for its fifth Kill Day; a government initiative, voted in by the people. The new law is simple; one day…one choice…one kill. It’s effective, it’s brutal and opinions are divided as both alliances and enemies are forged. But will Kill Day save us or destroy us?

 

Oooo that sounds epically geeky…tell me more -

We like to put our characters in extreme situations and see if their morals stand up…in the context of Kill Day it means we give them plenty of rope and see if they hang themselves or use it to strangle someone else...It’s dark and funny, it’s serious and bloody. It’s a story of faith and choices, morality and most importantly; survival.


The 8 part, first series, is ready to go into production this summer. The series spans one 24 hour event and follows the journeys of an eclectic bunch of ‘Kill Dayers’ –

Now for the really cool parts:


Our style is influenced by comic books, gaming, graphic novels and fairy tales and the way we tell our story reflects this. We will be doing most of our filming against a green screen so that we can use digital artistry to create our scene backdrops. This is exciting for two reasons;


Our locations are not restricted by budget constraints so our imaginations will take you to all sorts of weird and wonderful places.
We are essentially creating live action graphic novels (we’re pretty giddy even just writing that!).

Each of the eight episodes, will be watchable as a whole or in 5 minute chapters, allowing you to enjoy the whole Kill Day experience or pick and choose your favourite character/s to follow . We’ll also have regular video blogs on our site about the filming process as well as an all singing, all dancing forum so that you can interact with us as well as other Kill Day groupies.


Somebody wise once said;


‘Weapons! Weapons! Weapons!’


(Buffy the Vampire Slayer; to be specific)


And we couldn’t agree more! As if we could make a series called ‘Kill Day’ set in 2055 without having an array of fantastical bespoke weapons made especially for us?!

 

Why we need your support!


Although we are awesome (and obviously very modest), we have now reached the stage in our project where we need a little help from some fellow awesome people. Up until this point we have been completely self -funded but our idea is bigger than our budget. We have the scripts; we have an amazingly talented and committed cast and crew who are all giving us their time and expertise for free because they believe in this project as much as we do. We will be filming this July and August but in order to make Kill Day series one to the standard we want it, we need an extra boost…

 

The serious (but very necessary) budget bit -


If we are fortunate enough to reach our funding target, this is what it will be used for;

 

  • Filming locations and Green/blue Screens - £1,900
  • Costume and Makeup - £500
  • Weapons and props - £600
  • Travel expenses and food for our cast and crew - £800
  • Combat Choreography - £300
  • Upgraded filming equipment (more lights, shot gun mic etc) - £842
  • Legal requirements - £200
  • Contingency @ 15% - £771 

Total = £5913

Of course if we are lucky enough to exceed our target there are many other things that we would like to do to make Kill Day even better! For example; upgrade our camera and allow a bigger make- up budget to include injury prosthetics.

 

What do you get in return?


We really believe that we have the chance to build a great cult series and you get to enjoy its growth right from the beginning. If you are a fan of some great cult classics like we are, you’ll understand exactly how awesome that is!
We like to surround ourselves with like-minded people so that not only do we have a great time, we also make great work…the great thing about our incentives (on the right hand side) is that they give you the opportunity to be a part of that fun and jump on the Kill Day train with us.

 

Thanks very much for clicking on this page and also massive thanks for considering to help fund Kill Day…we really hope you’re as excited about seeing the series as we are about are about making it!
