"Sue" is the story of a secluded family living in the countryside, attempting to heal their uncontrollable daughter without the risk of incident. Their simple lives are quickly thrown into chaos when Sue's obsession with the nearby woods turns dark, and from there, things quickly change. People change. Sue will do anything to keep her family with her...no matter the cost.
Hey friends, first things first; THANK YOU SO MUCH for taking the time to check out our campaign! My name's Jacob Byrd and I am the director of SUE. If you're reading this then I can assume you love movies as much as I do. And that is exactly why I'm here---to ask for your participation in our film! First, some background: I'm a first time Director with Assistant Director experience on multiple projects. Furthermore, I have a DEEP love of horror. I'm a huge fan of classics like Halloween, Friday the 13th, Nightmare on Elm St, and The Night of the Living Dead. However, 'modern' horror films have had an equally large influence on me too. Specifically James Wan's work on Saw and The Conjuring, among others. Simply put, I love great movies and want to turn my passion and experiences into something tangible for others to see. After months of pre-production we have finally started that journey and it is called SUE.
What We Want for SUE: we want to make a movie that succeeds in all it attempts and most importantly, ENTERTAINS. We want you to love watching our movie, not because anyone told you to, but because it is tightly written, simply and artfully executed, and absolutely soaked in our sweat (as well as our characters' blood!). My writer, Dariush, and I have spent months taking a simple, engaging idea and growing it into what we believe will be an enjoyable and unpretentious movie experience.
Where You Guys Come In: We are looking to raise $10,000 to help fund and propel our movie forward. We have already donated money out of our own pockets (and will continue to do so) but we will need a bit more for this movie to be made. The money you donate will be used for: Equipment, Payroll, Props, and much more. (Check out the 'What We Need' section for a detailed breakdown).
Lastly, all of us here working on SUE would like to thank you again for giving us a moment of your time here on Indiegogo. We know there are many other wonderful projects on this revolutionary site and we truly appreciate all your support. We will work endlessly to assure that a dollar given to SUE will not go to waste. We WILL make this movie and we WILL make it great. Please join us in this undertaking however you can.
Oh, and watch out for Sue. I hear something's wrong with her.
Although we have access to cameras and editing equipment, we still need funding to help cover pre and post production costs. Some of these cost include:
- Insurance for production
- Additional equipment rentals ( lights,sound equipment, etc.)
- Permits, location fees
- Props and set dressing
- Makeup, special effects
- Catering and craft service
In exchange for your contribution, we've come up with a selection of awesome goodies we think you will enjoy such as; a signed DVD from the cast, film props, a day on the set, and more!
This film cannot be made without your help, There are other ways you can contribute as well:
- Tell everyone you know about SUE through the use of social media outlets (fb, twitter, instagram, vine, snail mail, loud screaming, flash mobs, and anything else you can think of!)
- Like and share our facebook page (facebook.com/suehorrormovie)
- Tweet about us or to us @suethemovie
No matter how small every bit really does count. We appreciate your time and enthusiasm and cannot wait to thank you for making this movie a reality!
-Jake Byrd, Dariush Rahimi & the Sue Crew
