New Videos Posted Daily in the, "Update," secton!

Check out the teaser video in the "Update," section!

-Laeta Kalogridis (Producer/ Writer - Avatar, Shutter Island, Night Watch)



Hi, I'm Glenn Ferrara. You don't know me, but you know the films I've worked on (Shutter Island, Inception, Burn After Reading, Revolutionary Road, etc.).

After six years working on other people's films, it's time I start making my own.

I made my first short film last year and now I ready for a big leap forward for short number 2.

With your help I can make a darn cool short film (more about the plot, in the "About the Film," section).

The ultimate goal is to make a feature film from this material. This short will be the first 20 pages of the Killer Vacation full movie script. Today the short, tomorrow the whole darn movie!

Please check out my teaser vid (More on that later) and the daily content I will be posting on this page.

Yes, daily content. Each weekday during this 45 day fundraising period, I will be posting a new (Hopefully) fun video on this page!

No, it won't be me asking for money, though they'll be some of that. It will be fun quick videos that are ripe for, "Sharing," "Liking" and Tweeting about.

Here's the schedule. (Check the, "Gallery," and, "Update," section for all the videos.)

Monday - Man on the Street Interview. I talk to real live people about my movie project. "What's your favorite Glenn Ferrara movie." That one got some fun responese.

Tueday - Animated Stories from my Career in Showbiz. I took my best on-set stories and animated the crap out of them. Warning, the are seriously funny.

Wednesday - Celebrity Endorsements - Real life celebs endorse me and my project. You'll never guess which mega stars love me.

Thursday - A Word from the Executive Producer of Glenn Ferrara.  That's my Mom. She's old and funny. Don't miss these vids.

Friday - Exclusive Behind the Scene Pre-Production Diary. We take a look at all the different departments preparing for the film. Stunt car rehearsals, Soundtrack album recording, animal training. What could go wrong? SPOILER: Everything goes wrong.

So stop by every weekday. You won't be disapointed.

What We Need & What You Get


To make a super fine, polished, professional looking short film, I'm going to need $20,000.

That sure does sound like a lot, but it really isn't.

Cameras, permits, costumes, sound equipment, lights, crew, food, special effects...all the stuff that you need, costs waaay more that it should. And you really do need it.

Folks expect a certain professional look that you just can't get for free, I know, I've tried it (see the 1st short).

So that's where help comes in.

And it's not like you're getting nothing for your $. Check out our awesome perks, there's some really cool stuff there.

About the Film

Killer Vacation is a 20 min short film about the Turner family, just your average, everyday American family.

But instead of a vacation at Disney or Yellowstone, the Turner family piles into a RV and drives cross country murdering anyone they can pluck off the highway.

This couldn't be more normal for them. Heck, Turners have been taking, "Vacations," for generations. It's what they do.

So what happens when the run into a psychotic escaped murderer.

Whoa boy, this is going to get awkward, and bloody.

Please check our teaser video (In the, "Updates," section) to get a great feel for the movie.
It's a quick 3 min video that really sets up the tone (Funny. Scary. Creepy)

Other Ways You Can Help

We'll take anything. Lint, Turkish money anything you have lying around.

If you can't make a donation, please help spread the word. You can "Like," the daily videos I post here on facebook or Tweet or Friendster (Is that still around?)

Alternative ways to get the word out: Smoke signals, pony express, morse code, a demonic shout out on a heavy metal album that you can only hear by playing the record backwards.


You can also kidnap any one of the many powerful producer, agents or studio execs that live in LA. Feel free to hold them for ransom (the ransom being they gotta give me a job directing a movie). Of course, I'm joking (Wink Wink) and would never condone this type of behavior (Wink Wink)

Oh, and there's something called the Indiegogo share tools.

I don't know what the hell that is either.

-Any questions, comments, suggestions, receipes, please email me at Glenn.Ferrara@gmail.com

Thanks for reading all this crap.
