A few months ago, my friend, writing partner, and all around awesome person, Tara, told me that we were just going to go ahead and make a movie. We had written 3 versions of a screenplay about the Lost Dutchman Mine in the Superstition Mountains and all of them were big budget action movies that while one day we would probably be able to sell, ultimately knew we wanted to do something with the story ourselves.
So we started doing it. We flew ourselves to Arizona, we interviewed people, we scouted locations, Tara finished the script and we formed a company and now we just have to come up with a little bit of a budget shortfall to get our vision on the screen.
There are lots of ways to do this, but the way we decided to do it, so that we could maintain the most independence and stay the leanest, was to put up a project on Indiegogo. Much like Kickstarter it’s a funding website that helps independent filmmakers reach their goals.
I’m excited about making a movie. I have been making television and documentaries ever since I left film school and this is my chance to apply all of that experience into a kick ass scary movie.
I hope you’ll check out the our project on the IndieGogo site. (If you donate there are perks!) Like us on Facebook (now with a link that works?). Check out our new twitter feed (@_darkmountain_) which is just getting its sea legs. And spread the word.
I’m doing this because I love telling stories and this is a damn good one.
