Wow! We made our goal and raised over $10,000 on Indiegogo for our film “Dark Company.” We are so grateful and thankful for the support and love of our friends and family. 48 days - and innumerable status updates – later, we’re a little tired, but very, very excited to begin filming again.
We’ll be shooting two chapters of our anthology film this summer and then four more this fall. We’ve set aside the winter for post-production – editing, sound design, music, effects and color. If all goes well, “Dark Company” should be finished by late spring, early summer.
Although most of the perks won’t be ready to be sent out until after the film is completed, contributors can look forward to receiving personalized postcards in their mail over the next few weeks.
This has been an incredible experience for us at Ostrich Colony Films. We’re very humbled by the generosity of our supporters.
Thank you so much,
Christopher Kyle Kelley
In just 6 days (Thursday, May 2), we will be launching our Indiegogo campaign to complete our anthology film “Dark Company”!
For those of you unfamiliar with Indiegogo: Indiegogo is a crowdfunding platform where people who want to raise money can create fundraising campaigns to tell their story and get the word out.
Our goal is to raise $10,000 over 45 days. This $10,000 will help us cover the production costs of completing our film.
We will be giving out great “perks” – rewards for those who donate – like postcards, the score, DVDs of the film, and Josh might even sing you a song.
We’re super excited about our project and this fundraising campaign. Thanks for the support!
Exciting news: Ostrich Colony Films is in the process of making a feature length neo-noir movie called “Dark Company.” It’s an anthology film (that’s a fancy term for a collection of short movies) that will include our previous short films “Through The Red Door” and “I Still Adore You” as individual chapters in the longer piece.
With this full-length movie, we are expanding on the dark, mysterious world of our two award-winning short films and watching the characters from both stories collide. There will be new characters (a professional hitwoman! a violent serial killer!), stunning locations, beautiful costumes, thrilling music, plot twists, and the return of our brilliant cast and the rockin’ & rollin’ blues band Rumble King.
We’ve already shot a new chapter for the film that features Ben from “Through The Red Door” (Adam Epstein) and Adored from “I Still Adore You” (Sina J. Henrie).
To finish our movie, we will be raising money through the fundraising website Indiegogo. So, keep your eyes peeled for our fundraising video in the very near future. Thanks for your friendship and your support – we’re going need it when we’re knee-deep in this crazy film world.
