Thank you everyone!!!  Between the two campaigns we raised over $4,200 from over 50 donors!  And while we didn't reach our ultimate goal, we did make enough to fulfill all the perks with just a little extra for production items we really needed to start making this movie!  So we're on our way!

Thank you all so much for your support every single donation made a HUGE difference!

If you want to continue supporting our film, you can visit our website ZombieElves.com where you can still donate and receive some of the same awesome perks!

Also, be sure to "like" our Facebook Page.

Project Overview

This is a low budget independent film project be released outside of the mainstream distribution system.  We will be raising the money ourselves, building our own fanbase and releasing the film ourselves.  And that's why we need your help and support.

The Story

The film is set almost entirely on The North Pole with Santa's Elves as the main characters.  For us it was vitally important to treat them like real characters while also providing enough blood and guts to satisfy even the most ardent horror fan.  It's a great combination of the Christmas and horror genres if we do say so ourselves.

What We Need

Our goal of $42,350 is for pre-production funds. The total budget for this film is $600,000 but that is outside the scope of what can be raised through crowdfunding. And we can't reach our ultimate goal of $600,000 without pre-production funds and your help.  Here is a breakdown of where your donations will go:

  • Pre-production (travel, location scouting, specialized casting)
  • Legal fees (contracts with cast, crew, investors)
  • Pay or Play Deals for Talent
  • Securing an experienced director
  • Visual Effects and Special Effects Design
  • Costume design
  • Key Art/Promotional Print Items
  • Manufacturing calendars and t-shirts for perks and promotional purposes
  • Indiegogo and Paypal processing fees (I have to allow for the full fee of 12.3% in case we miss our goal by even $1.00)

What You'll Get

All perks will be fulfilled regardless of how much money we end up raising and delivered BEFORE Christmas 2011, or even sooner if we reach our goal early.  Obviously DVD and VOD (Video on Demand) requests will be delivered upon the final release of the film.

The Bad Ass Santa t-shirt was designed by graphic artist David Rose.  Thanks to David, "Zombie Elves" is now aka "Santa With A Shotgun"!   Be sure to put your shirt size in the comments section of your donation screen and specify either a men's or women's style.
