Kickstarter and Indiegogo are changing the face of how films are getting paid for and yet another “Hollywood” heavy hitter is turning to the service to try and get their project financed. Thing is, this might just be one that horror fans want to get behind.
The FX crew behind the remake of THE THING were a little ticked off that so much of their practical FX work got axed or altered from the final film they’ve decided it’s time to make a movie their way. They’ve built a website and posted up a nice little five minute teaser and explanation of what they want to do. Watch below and see if you want to jump on board:[youtube]http://youtu.be/HPbolNt-Vmg[/youtube]
A quick click over to their KICKSTARTER PAGE shows they’ve already met their goal but as the video said, more is welcome and they’ll put it all towards production value and better FX.
The project is gaining steam and attracting some major league talent both in front of and behind the camera. Get on board while you can.
