The Rake is a creature that appears to look like some kind of man/dog hybrid, the name comes from the hands as bones appear to be extensions of its fingers. Giving a rake looking image to the hands. Furthermore, The Rake has been noted for its unnatural body position, which appears twisted and distorted, as if it had been mutilated after being hit by a car. When a person does encounter the Rake, the creature makes certain demands that must be met. If demands are not met, the Rake will continue to haunt and pester its victim for an unknown time period. Once that time period draws to an end, The Rake ends the life of its victim. The film is an exact interpretation of this creature and it's origin. We aim to please with this production to all of the fans and to all who have a fear of The Rake.
This is a very personal project to us. We need the support from our family, friends and like-minded film enthusiasts to make this project possible. We are putting all of our energy toward making this project as successful as possible but at the end of the day, your support is incredibly important to the success of this film.
Our philosophy is very simple, we aren't asking for your money just because we want to be wealthy individuals, we are asking for your money because we want to make the highest quality film possible. You have our word that we will not cut any corners or make any concessions during the entire process.
You are not paying our salaries or for our personal needs. Your money will go directly to:
EQUIPMENT RENTALS – Redefine give us a few pretty incredible equipment packages, but to make the story look, sound, and feel as great as we see it, we'll need some extra fire power.
LOCATIONS – Not everyone is willing to let a big movie crew into their homes or onto their property for free – help us shoot in the perfect spots.
FILM FESTIVAL SUBMISSION FEES – We want as many people to see The Rake as possible. Help us send this thriller to as many cities as we can.
TRANSPORTATION – Help send the cast and crew from California & Texas to the setting of the film in Reno, Nevada.
FOOD – The Rake is looking like a full 10-14 day shoot. Help keep the cast and crew alive and well during the days of this intensive shoot.
LODGING – With a bigger group of people than we've had before, there's a new space in the budget for hotels and the like. Help us stay comfy while we work to make some magic.
Facebook post, Twitter update, word of mouth, blog post, all of these things can help spread the word about our film. We understand times are rough and that some cannot donate. Reaching out to others about our film is just as important as reaching our funding goal.
