We made an award-winning horror movie called "The Case of Evil". Help us travel to the festivals where it's been picked as an Official Selection so that we can network with potential commercial distributors for the film.

We made an award-winning movie. Help us make the connections we need to take it to the next level. 

In September of last year, our mom and pop production company completed its first ever narrative short, "The Case of Evil." Produced on a shoestring budget, shot in three days, and featuring an Internet-connected orchestra scattered over the globe, it's been very well received at festivals both in the U.S. and abroad. Just a month after premiering, it swept the horror / sci fi / action category at the San Diego Fall Film Festival and picked up 1st Place Awards from both the judges and the attending audience. Our lead Merrick McCartha won a "Best Actor" award at a Hollywood festival in August. In total, we've been named an Official Selection for 28 different film festivals, which is an astronomical number for a first-time film.  

As great as these awards and selections have been, our ultimate goal is to get the film on to a commercial platform where it can create revenue for our fledgling company, and where it can be seen by a large audience. To achieve that, we need to be able to meet with the potential commercial distributors and investors who attend film festival screenings. These events are also important because they put all our hard work in front of casting directors, big-name studio producers, and others who are in a position to provide paying opportunities for our cast and our crew.


There are, of course, no guarantees that anyone will choose to distribute us even after seeing the film or meeting with us, but chances are greatly increased in face-to-face meetings. Further, personal appearances of producers or directors at a festival helps heighten the public's general interest in both the film being shown, and also the festival at which it is being shown. It's a win for all parties involved.  

Where The Funds Will Go

Providing that we can reach our target, funds will be used to pay for transportation and lodging to as many festivals as possible where "The Case of Evil" is an official selection. Festivals where we've been nominated for awards will naturally get priority. 

In the event that we fail to reach our target, then funds will be applied towards fees required to self-distribute "The Case of Evil" via iTunes & Amazon, along with associated advertising and promotional costs.
