"NO REST FOR THE WICKED" will be a at least a 30 minute Horror Western short filmed in Oklahoma. Set In the old west, two desperadoes Wylie and Callie set out to find a little something for an old friend in exchange for a place to lay low. They target a big landowner and his daughter in hopes they would have lots of cash lying around. What they find is gold and two land deeds. While planning their future, things quickly go wrong for them and in the end, justice at the hands of their own evil deeds.
The witty writing styles of Brenda-Marie Whitehead & Alex Whitmer made the screenplay rich with complex characters and inventive storytelling. Our DP & Director is Jason Smolesky out of Phoenix, AZ. Jason has a great vision & we can't wait to show you his magic! You can seen a touch of his excellent work in the pitch video that was shot in Oklahoma recently. BrenRock Productions LLC., owners Rock Whitehead, is the #NRFTW Casting Director, Producer and his wife Actress and Writer Brenda-Marie Whitehead are no strangers to the film industry.
We'll also be shooting at Sipokni West in southern Oklahoma. Johnny Shakleford has created an entire movie set western town complete with a saloon, blacksmith, hotels and many other buildings that perfectly reflect the look of a true western town in the 1880's. Oh, did I mention the steaks there are the best!!
In "Phase 1" we raised $2506.00 from funders on Indiegogo. After you minus indiegogo's platform fee (9.0%) & their payment processing fee (3%), NRFTW still ended up with $2416 including ALL donations that came in for "Phase1". Still not too bad! That put us over 1/3 funded which is good. This is "Phase 2" of our "No Rest For The Wicked" fundraiser. Good news! This time there is no platform fee (9%), because we're using our own platform and website. That means more donations actually used for NRFTW instead of it going to an outside company. We're cutting every corner we can, but in order to achieve the film's full integrity, this project still needs a very minimum of $6500 to produce, so as you can see we're headed in the right direction with the funds that have already been raised. WE CAN'T DO THIS WITHOUT YOUR HELP! We have to pay everything from film insurance, locations, horses, cast, crew, flights & ground transportation, lodging, generators, grip truck, catering, wardrobe, make-up, wranglers, stunt coordinator & more. If we go over our goal, once production cost is covered, the cast will benefit which is well deserved.
The film will be shot in mid April of 2014 in Oklahoma. We need your help to raise the additional funds needed to begin paying for everything to make this film happen. Your aid will help us create a true horror western film! Many of you know that we've been very passionate about this project for a long time & we'd all love to see this finally come to life. YOU will be playing a huge part in making this dream become a reality and help us achieve what wouldn't be otherwise. YOU are the key no matter how big are small you can contribute. We can't do this without your help. LOOK AT THE COOL PERKS IN THE RIGHT HAND COLUMN THAT YOU WILL BE GETTING FOR YOUR CONTRIBUTIONS! ---->
PLEASE SUPPORT OUR FILM SPONSOR! A BIG SHOUT OUT to our friends and sponsor, Tucson's own Arbuckle Coffee! They will be supplying coffee for the cast & crew while in production. It's the coffee that won the west!
