Hey everyone,

We came across an interesting horror movie pitch on indiegogo. If you are interested, you can fund this artistic endeavor at the following website: (https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/into-the-trees-indie-horror-film).

Here’s a message from the creators:

“Darkness, once gazed upon, can never be lost.

Our names are Jon Vulpine and Alex DeStefino, we love horror films and making movies. Jon is a music video director and Alex is a documentary filmmaker and camera assistant. We’re always around film and we have a passion for storytelling and the process that goes into telling a great story. We feel like the horror genre is missing its boogeyman, one figure that scares the life out of people and evokes nightmares like Freddy and Jason. We want to create the next great horror story.

We’re looking to raise $5000 for this horror film which will be around 30 minutes in length. The money will go towards locations, actors, special effects makeup, cameras and lighting. Every cent raised will go into pushing the limits of the story, production, and editing.

Horror filmmakers like Alfred Hitchcock broke new ground with every film they made. Directors like this made people look over their shoulders in once friendly neighborhoods. Film is an escape for many people, a chance to see and experience fear and terror and things they normally don’t experience in everyday life. A chance to be scared, but knowing it’s not real. Jon has worked on big budget music videos, and has 8 years experience in the industry and Alex has worked on award winning documentaries. Combined they have 15 years experience in the industry, handling cameras, running sets, telling stories.

There are always troubles that arise when filming anything, I can’t think of one set where everything goes perfect, it’s usually the opposite. But with extensive pre production and the right crew in place, we can be prepared for most any problems that arise, and our level of experience is a key factor when it comes to diffusing any problem that arises on set. We pride ourselves as seasoned filmmakers in being excellent problem solvers, able to diffuse and stay cool in any situation and always finding an outcome. I think what separates a good director from a great director is how well someone can work under pressure. When everything goes wrong, a great director can turn it all around.

We understand not everyone can help, but getting the word out there is just as important. Please, spread the word. If you’re a fan of films, the horror genre, or just great storytelling and want to see an original film brought to life, please spread the word!

Thank you,

Jon and Alex”
