UPDATE: 6 DAYS LEFT TO MAKE THIS DREAM A REALITY! HEAD ON OVER TO THE INDIEGOGO PAGE AND CHECK IT OUT!
Source: Vince Collura & The Official Z*Con IndieGoGo Campaign:
Z*CON is feature length film about four teen podcasters who are trapped at a comic convention when the zombie apocalypse breaks out. They use social media to share what’s going on inside with the outside world. It’s kind of like “Goonies” meets “Shaun of the Dead” set in…well….a comic convention.
Oh…and 100% of the net proceeds from this film will go to charities such as The American Red Cross & Kids Need To Read! Pretty cool idea, huh? The IndieGoGo Campaign will be running from October 1st (hey, that’s today, so why aren’t you already donating?!) until November 9th, so while you have 40 days to contribute, you never know when the zombie apocalypse will hit, so head on over and start helping with the funding now!
I, for one, am incredibly excited about this project. If there’s any place for a zombie outbreak to occur, it’s going to be at a Con. Of course you’ll have your cowards and pants-pissers, but if I know anything, I know Con people, and I can guarantee that at least half (and this is a conservative number) have a zombie outbreak plan all ready to go. Weapons, however, will definitely prove an issue when all you have to work with is fake props and “boffer” swords. Regardless, we geeks are a hardy crowd and a zombie outbreak inside of a Con, while a nightmare to some, is a dream come true for horror fans!
Just in case WELL MADE, FUNNY, YET GRAPHICALLY HORRIFIC ZOMBIE FILM FOR CHARITY didn’t grab your attention right away, the filmmakers have already created a proof-of-concept short to give you an idea of what the film will be like. Check it out:
So where does the money go?
- Approximately 10% goes to Indiegogo for running this campaign.
- Approximately 10% will go to reward fulfillment and shipping.
- The remaining 80% will go towards securing our warehouse to build the set of our film in, securing insurance and permits for the entire production, paying our cast and crew, building sets, and everything we need to start filming and we want you there every step of the way.
For another tasty little morsel, here’s a bit more video to show a bit of the behind-the-scenes work and effort going into making Z*CON the best it can possibly be!
