Yeah, I know I said I was blanking Kickstarter, but that’s after chipping in here – and anyway, there’s no reason you have to. So here’s a quick plug for a worthwhile film project being put together by a citizen of my acquaintance. It’s called Eggs, and here’s the synopsis: a lonely, abandoned woman in a small town has fallen through the cracks and begins hearing voices. This is a woman whose family has all either left or died and she simply hasn’t felt loved or needed in a very long time. It doesn’t take long before she begins to believe that her dead son is speaking to her. This motivates her to take action for the first time in years. Unfortunately, without any real support network, she eventually snaps and things go very, very badly.
He has managed to get some impressive talent together for the film including Lynn Lowry (The Crazies, Shivers, Cat People) and Irwin Keyes (Intolerable Cruelty, House of 1000 Corpses) so there is some genuine horror cred involved. Plus the DP was the FX cinematographer for the Lord of the Rings Trilogy, and did camera work on Return of the Jedi and a million other things. The promo vid is above, and you can also check out the production blog: to support the film, head straight to the Kickstarter page and wave your credit-card like I did. You can contribute as little as a buck, and let’s face it, how often do you get the chance to finance a film with this kind of talent associated?
End of sales pitch. 🙂
