Short Summary

Once revered as the greatest editor of all time, an editing accident reduced him to a ridiculed amputee.  When his co-workers are murdered one after another, the editor is the prime suspect!
Has he lost control of his psycho-sexual subconscious like a modern day Dr. Jekyll or Wolfman?  Not even he knows for sure!

Help us make the movies we've all been dying to see!
Hollywood ain't gonna do it.
Manborg was shot on standard-def video for almost nothing.  Father's Day was shot on DSLR for ten thousand dollars.  We want to take a swing at the big league on this absurdist giallo film and we need your help.

What We Need & What You Get

We need money for equipment, actors, stunts, and production/marketing materials in that order.  We shoot this AUGUST!

Giallo films are all about style and we want this film to look amazing.  It's time to graduate from DSLR, and work with the same gear "real movies" use, but that gear is expensive.
Actors are expensive too.  We always work for free, unpaid on our own movies, and so do most of our actors (God bless them) but name-actors need a reason to make themselves available to us.  We have huge respect for hundreds of genre greats that are often overlooked by the mainstream and we want to work with them.  We need money for airfare, food, hotels etc.
Stunts are incredibly expensive.  We will put our own lives on the line for our movies, no problem, but there are things we are phyically unable to do, no matter how little we care for ourselves.  We don't want to do any CGI bullshit.  Let's throw people off buildings on fire together!

If we don't reach our goal but we reach $1200 we will at least be guaranteed a cool poster in the tradition of cool Astron-6 posters by notable genre artists!

If we don't reach our goal but we reach $6000 we will have a cool poster and some really cool music, and hey that's pretty great!

The Impact

If we reach $15,000, we will officially be playing with the big boys, and shooting on RED EPIC or ALEXA (or if something better/equal comes out before we shoot, then that.)

If we reach $20,000, we can promise at least ONE name-actor will appear in THE EDITOR!  Getting anyone to watch a movie full of nobodies is hard, trust us!  Not to mention the hundreds of genre actors out there we're dying to collaborate with!

If we reach $30,000, we can promise some insane stunt-work.  We've set ourselves on fire, and jumped off moving cars in the past... now it's time to get serious.

Finally if we reach $130,000 we can make exactly the movie we've been wanting to make, no restrictions.  This will be an insane, mindfuck of comedy, sex/violence/stunts and name actors.
