Z*Con is feature length film about four teens trapped at a comic convention when the zombie apocalypse breaks out. It’s kind of like “Goonies” meets “Shaun of the Dead” set in a Comic Con.

If you're a fan of ours or a previous support, thank you so much for getting us this far. It's the home stretch! Let's make this awesome!

If this is the first time you've heard of Z*Con,  100% of the net proceeds from this film, once released, will go to charity!

             

Those charities being the American Red Cross, to help with their disaster relief programs, and Kids Need to Read to help their mission of providing inspiring books to underfunded schools, libraries, and literacy programs, especially those serving disadvantaged children, and a very small amount will go to Big Damn Films to help cover costs of production and distribution of the film.  Pretty cool, hunh? 

Check out our Proof of Concept (below) and our behind the scenes of how it was made on our YouTube Channel.


What are some of the perks?

And much much more over on the right hand side! 

So what's the deal...didn't you already do a campaign?

We did. Our first campaign in 2012 raised enough money to make our proof of concept. Our last campaign got us 95% of the way through pre-production costs such as:

And our amazing Production Photos:


Here are the four stages of zombification. 

Each stage will be a nod to past horror movies.


So where does the money go?

  • 10% goes to Indiegogo for running this campaign.
  • 15% will go to reward fulfillment and shipping.
  • 35% will go towards securing our location, insurance and permits for the production.
  • 40% will go towards paying cast and crew.
