KICKSTARTER PROJECT: THE UNDERTAKERS: RESURRECTION
The Story: There are certain places throughout the world that possess supernatural properties, where the dead inexplicably rise from the grave to hunt human flesh.
Charged with defending this dangerous secret are a group of highly skilled agents in a private organization referred to as "The Undertakers". Their mission: to identify, segregate, and stand vigil in these dangerous areas preventing the possibility of a catastrophic outbreak.
The Players: The web series is proud to have the support of J. Larose (Insidious, Saw 3, The Barrens) who will portray Talon Black...an agent in the war against the undead. The feature film entitled The Undertakers: Road's End will also boast Richard Hatch (Battlestar Galactica), Edwin Neal (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre) and Lindsey Haun (True Blood).
Our Current Mission: Our goal, this November, is to produce a web series that takes place in the secretive world of the Undertakers. They will feature supporting characters in a series of events leading up to the feature film The Undertakers: Road's End. The purpose of these videos is to give production companies and potential investors a glimpse into the gothic world of the Undertakers in an attempt to raise funding for the feature film. Plus, they will look pretty damn cool on our website: theundertakers.info (Join us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/TheUndertakersinfo)
It is also important for us to have something more than our current storyboard/trailer to represent our vision. Since it was produced, there have been major screenplay charges and character alterations... We have some fixin' to do.
Our Overall Mission: If we are successful in meeting our goals, The Undertakers will flourish into a flurry of stories that will be told in several different formats, including the feature film, comics and even a television show. These stories will involve multiple characters, scattered all over the world, who have dedicated their lives as agents in the oldest most secretive organization on earth.
The Crew: The web series and feature film were created by writer/director Kevin Head, whose bio you can read on this page. He will be supported by DOP Alex Mitchell who will shoot the project entirely using the RED ONE and Breakiron Animation and Design who will focus on the FX aspects of the project. The rest of the crew will be rounded out by an incredibly talented group of professionals, mostly volunteering their time to bring this vision to life.
RISKS AND CHALLENGES
One possible risk is that we will need a bit more time than we planned to finish the movie. Most of the people working on this project are volunteering time and do it mostly for the love of movie-making. Therefore, paying gigs sometimes trump projects that are a labor of love. That being said, there will be every effort made during scheduling to best meet the needs of those volunteering time.
