Hello, my name is Anthony Corso, I am a college student, and I am an Independent film director. I have done many stints of work on several independent film sets that have made me to what I am today.
I am launching this campaign in order to raise money for a film called Urge. This film is really important to us, we are taking every step necessary in order to become successful. Urge is my passion project, I and many others have spent countless hours working on this. If you contribute to this film, you will be helping us make an awesome movie. We will be able to create extremely detailed practical special effects, we will be able to get this film done in a shorter time frame plus at a greater quality, and our crew won’t be so hungry on long extended shoot days! In addition we will be able to promote and share our film with many people! That’s the magnitude, you the contributor will help us get finished with 5,000 dollars! We plan on taking this film to many film festivals across the country as well!
If we don’t reach our entire goal, it is true we will still get some money but Indiegogo will take out 9% of our earnings instead of 4% if we do reach our goal!
I understand if you don’t have any money to contribute, I’m broke just like you. But you can help us and our dream, in other ways. You can share the link to our campaign to your friends and family members, get them to watch our trailer (and this video) so that maybe someone else can contribute in their own way. Getting the word out on our campaign is extremely valuable and we appreciate your help!

Thank you for taking your precious time out to watch this video!
Some of our expenses include but are not limited to:
Location permits- While most of of the film takes place inside a couple houses, we do have to get permits to shoot in downtown Wilmington, and a few other places in the area.
Special Effects Make up- The special effects makeup will make this film a visual masterpiece. We aren't using any CGI, we want to use all practical effects for what we are trying to achieve. Matt Barrett is a highly skilled Special Effects Make-up artist, and he will definitely put each contribution to good use.
Wardrobe- Getting the right clothes for our actors is essential to our film, while we do have a small library of clothes to choose from, there is a lot of things we do not have. Our wardrobe coordinator, Nicole Hernandez has a very good run of doing wardrobe for film and very handy at what she does.
Meals- Everybody hears this from Independent Filmmakers but it's true that a well fed cast and crew is a happy cast and crew. Most of our filming days are going to run 11-13 hours a piece, in this case people need to be fed on set in order to boost productivity and overall morale!
An Independent film, Written by Anthony Octavius Corso and Kewa "KC" Campbelloff, 2 senior students at Cape Fear Community College in the Film and Video Production program.
The Burton's seems like the perfect family. So perfect in fact, that they catch the sinister gaze of a serial killer named Diana; A psychotic and even sometimes ruthless family slaughterer, who has a warped sense of reality and family love. The Burton's are Diana's target, and she will never stop until her Urge is satisfied.
