What is "Until It Breaks"?

"Until It Breaks" is the story of Stephen Crahan, who is a low-middle class citizen in Ohio is barely able to support himself. His family has long since abandoned him and he has no friends, so he lives as a recluse. All he wanted was to feel like he had power. He receives that power, but he forgets that power corrupts.

About the Director

My name is Matt Bird. I'm a high school graduate from Northwestern Ohio. Since about 2009, I've been making YouTube videos and I got a little burned out on making short comedy videos and wanted to tackle something a little larger than your average YouTube video: I wanted to make a short film. Not a comedy, but a horror film. I grew up watching horror films and I've always wanted to make a movie of my own. I just never had the money or the proper equipment to do something on a large scale. 

This film is an adaptation of a short story I wrote in high school called "Stephen Crahan's Journal." The story was told in journal form. This character writes down, in detail, who, why, and how he murders people, going from one person to the next until his sanity breaks. I've submitted it to more than a few magazines but it was rejected because there was so much gore. So I figured, "Why not adapt it into a film that focuses on atmosphere and suspense rather than a hundred gallons of blood?" The film will differ from the story, but not too much.

I'm sure this film will satisfy horror fans, especially those who are in love with the classics such as "Halloween" and "Friday the 13th."

How We Will Use the Money

  • Transportation: So the Cast & Crew can arrive on set.
  • Equipment: Lighting, props, tripods, etc.
  • Makeup: To make Stephen Crahan look dead/insane.

Other Ways You Can Help

If you can't contribute to the project, you can always help promote it by talking about it to your friends! Promote the film on Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook, YouTube, any form you see fit. It'll really help out!

I look forward to seeing this dream come true. 

I'll post updates along the way :)
