On Sunday, October 12th, we will premiere a 4-minute teaser from the film and our Indiegogo campaign video (which is pretty awesome, if we do say so ourselves) at The Show! Austin. Two days later, our IGG campaign officially launches.
Attendees of The Show! will have access to perks not available at any other time during the campaign.
Even better, we're giving away 10 free tickets to The Show!, and offering a discount on ticket prices.
Click here to enter the drawing. Deadline is EXTENDED UNTIL 11:59 PM SUNDAY (October 5th). Everyone who enters will also receive a promo code for 15% off the price of the tickets.
Some more thoughts on the reactions to the rough cut that we showed people a few weeks ago:
When producer Charles Mulford and I were discussing a much earlier draft of the script a few years ago, he expressed a little concern that it might not be scary enough. I asked him to trust me, because I knew that if we executed the movie properly, there were moments in the script that were going to play much scarier than they read on the page. That’s true for any horror script, honestly, but it’s especially true, I think, for found footage.
UPDATE: Sorry - the poll's already closed, so we've taken the videos down, too. Sign up on our email list to get a first look when the winner goes out to the public.
Next month we'll be launching an Indiegogo campaign, so we'll be publicly releasing the first clips of Found Footage 3D. But we want your help to figure out which of these three clips makes the best teaser for the film.
Last Wednesday night was our first screening of the movie for people who aren’t cast or crew. Someone asked me beforehand if I was nervous, and weirdly, I wasn’t. felt pretty confident in what we have right now and where the movie is at, and I was looking forward to hearing what people had to say about what was and wasn’t working at this stage in the editing process. This is the first of what I hope will be several blogs about what I took away from the screening.
My wife pointed out to me earlier this evening that there is a difference between being scared and being horrified. A lot of people enjoy being scared. You will be, if you watch FF3D. But I can’t promise that you won’t also be horrified a few times as well. Consider this a warning.
Normally it's a bit taboo to show actors footage of themselves during production, but these guys insisted. You'll be glad they did, because their reactions are priceless (and 100% genuine). This is the first time they've ever seen any of the footage in 3D. If you have a 3D capable set up, watch our 3D version for an even better viewing experience.
Horror-writers.net sat down with Steven for an interview to get his thoughts on the concepts behind Found Footage 3D and how 3D and comedy will play an important role in the film. Also, find out what films inspired Steven to start directing in the first place.
