Check out the details for the up coming kickstarter for Scythe.
From the Press Release
Award winning writer/director Jim Rothman (I'm Not Matt Damon, Going Down There, Minutes) has created his fourth short film SCYTHE, which he plans to make into a feature film through a successful Kickstarter campaign, beginning on April 5th.
The feature film SCYTHE is a psychological slasher/thriller in the spirit of Halloween, Saw & films directed by the great Alfred Hitchcock.
Jim's film will modernize the slasher genre and have a human-interest, dramatic element that takes the time to focus on developing three dimensional characters that "actually have lives, that we actually care about." Painstaking research was utilized to avoid the annoying, eye-rolling horror film cliques the slasher genre is known for. The film is suspense-based, intensity-based, fear-based, not gore-based.
The feature budget is $100,000. Jim and his team have already raised the first $50,000. They are launching a Kickstarter campaign to raise another $50,000. The success of the campaign will allow them to shoot the film this year.
The short version of SCYTHE premiered at the Los Angeles International Short Film Festival. On April 8th, it will be screening at the 40th Cleveland International Film Festival.
