You may have been wondering where I've been...or maybe you didn't notice. Either way, my mind has not been focused on The Horror Effect because it's been occupied with thoughts of a killer deer. In other words, I'm working on a new film! And if you're interested, you can help me out by sharing my Kickstarter page: The Last Buck Hunt on Kickstarter.
My next feature film goes by the name of The Last Buck Hunt. Part mockumentary and part traditional cinematic experience, the movie follows the mismatched crew of a hunting TV show out to snag a legendary killer deer. It's not long before the hunt is endangered by mysterious behavior from the show's tracker, the host's unwarranted ego, and of course the local life. As you might be guessing from the premise, the film is a horror comedy with extra emphasis on the comedy.
Oddly enough, I haven't made a whole lot of horror comedies in a professional sense -- most of my mature efforts were either standalone horror, comedy, or suspense. The reason this is odd is because I've always been inclined toward horror-comedy; most of my early, amateur films were of this genre blend. I'm so excited to be returning to the wonderful world of horror and humor.
If you'd like to know a bit more about the film, check out this post on the Indiestructible (our film production moniker) site: What is The Last Buck Hunt? Now, I did mention this was my "next" feature film. If you'd like to check out my first real feature endeavor, then give the trailer a watch: Break Trailer.
In order to grow as a filmmaker and truly bring The Last Buck Hunt to life, I'm hoping to secure a budget that will allow me to cast the talent that the script calls for, create a cool "creature" design, and raise production value through art direction. To achieve this, we've started a Kickstarter project to help raise funds for The Last Buck Hunt. If you have a moment to watch our video and share the project with anyone that might be interested, I would be forever grateful. Go here to check out our project: The Last Buck Hunton Kickstarter.
My posts will probably continue to be sporadic as I delve even deeper into production on The Last Buck Hunt, but I'll do my best not to ignore The Horror Effect. Feel free to reach out if you'd like to know more about the project (I'm happy to talk your ear off).
