THE OFFICIAL CANDY CORN CROWDFUNDING CAMPAIGN
46% Funded With 4 Days Left!
CANDY CORN is the result of a passionate team of horror fans coming together to create the best homage to the genre as possible, using film as the vessel. Created by Butch Von Dreaux (Butchovision), Written and Directed by Josh Hasty (IN HELL EVERYBODY LOVES POPCORN), starring Pancho Moler (Rob Zombie's 31), and boasting a team of industry veterans including Justin Mabry (Trick or Treat Studios), Cody Varona (Forgotten Saints L.A.), Michelle More Gore, and Fright Rags, CANDY CORN brings a lot of promise to fans of the genre.
We currently have what would be considered a 'typical' indie budget. With this we could create a good film. But since Rue Morgue announced CANDY CORN in November, we've gained an overwhelming amount of interest from a lot of fans and very talented people. We've realized two things; a lot of horror professionals want to be a part of this project, and a lot of horror fans want to help make it happen. This is why we decided to crowd fund, to get our fellow fans involved while raising more funds to allow us to take the production value of CANDY CORN to the next level.
We believe in the story of CANDY CORN and we want to see the film come to life to its fullest potential. Fortunately we're not alone, and we've partnered with some AMAZING companies and people to bring our supporters the best perks package we could dream up. We need your help to take our project to the next level, and we want to make sure it's more than worth every dollar you help us raise.
WHAT WE NEED & WHAT YOU GET
We need to raise at least $50k to take CANDY CORN to the next level. With our current budget we'll be able to produce a decent indie film, but with your help we can put the extra funds toward more iconic horror actors, more authentic locations and set design, and an overall higher production value, giving the story of CANDY CORN the film adaptation it truly deserves.
We don't expect anyone to just shell out cash without getting something in return, and we definitely don't expect you to do it for just a cheesy t shirt and bumper sticker. So we've worked for months putting together what could be the greatest crowdfunding perks package any horror film has ever seen. When you help us fund this project you'll not only be helping the film get made at the highest level we can, but you'll be buying one of a kind merchandise and memorabilia from our partners like Fright Rags, who made a limited edition crowd fund only CANDY CORN t shirt, Trick or Treat Studios, who designed and licensed the mask used in the film, Forgotten Saints L.A., who's own Cody Varona created the wardrobes for the film, and Butchovision, who has created every official piece of CANDY CORN swag and art imaginable.
Whether we fall short of our goal, or exceed it a hundred times over, every penny we raise will go on screen to make CANDY CORN that much better. Obviously the more money we raise, the better our film will look, sound and feel. Which means a bigger release and even more exciting stuff for fans down the road.
The main reason we decided to make CANDY CORN is because we are first and foremost fans of the horror genre. As much as we appreciate and respect the new wave of horror that has emerged in last few years, we feel that classic horror icons have fallen to the wayside. We aim to help reignite that flame with the characters in CANDY CORN.
We are confident in our team of filmmakers to execute this due to a successful track record stretching across the board. Starting with the story of CANDY CORN, Butch Von Dreaux is no stranger to creating products that move people and sell. With nearly 80k fans following his every move on Instagram, Butch is a curator of all things spooky, with an army of followers that support his ideas. The story of CANDY CORN could've easily been handed off to any up and coming filmmaker to take the helm, and for this role Butch chose Josh Hasty. Josh is no stranger to creating indie films on a budget, he single handedly directed, shot and edited the highly acclaimed documentary on the making of Rob Zombie's 31. A portion of the documentary screened in theaters nation wide with 31, and was released in its entirety on Bluray and DVD from Lionsgate in December, 2016. Josh spent about a year documenting over 500 hours of Rob Zombie creating his newest film, ultimately proving that he had the skills and knowledge of how to create a powerful and effective film with very little resources. This was soon confirmed as the documentary received rave reviews from many publications, including Forbes and Daily Dead, not to mentioned the thousands of fans that discovered Josh Hasty's work after falling in love with his documentary. But that's just the beginning! The entire team of filmmakers on board with CANDY CORN are truly in the top tier of their trade in the film and horror industries. The film stars Pancho Moler, who is forever immortalized as Sick-Head in Rob Zombie's 31. And the talent doesn't stop behind the camera either. From legendary mask designer, Justin Mabry of Trick or Treat Studios, to lead makeup artist, Michelle More Gore, who his known for her elaborate makeup design at some of the country's most famous haunted attractions as well as her massive online presence. To the crew itself, who are all seasoned, top notch filmmakers who are eager to help shake up the indie horror scene with CANDY CORN.
OTHER WAYS YOU CAN HELP
We appreciate every single dollar that is put toward this campaign! As indie filmmakers, each dollar is like a hundred dollars to us because we're conditioned to make it last. But we also understand that not everyone can afford to throw money at the project for one reason or another. So whether you're able to or not, the biggest thing we ask EVERYONE to do is SHARE, SHARE, SHARE this campaign! The horror industry is the biggest industry when it comes to film. There are conventions and gatherings all year around all over the world where freaks like us go to find out the next big thing, or celebrate our favorite existing things. But we only have 31 days to raise funds for this project, so we need an army! Fortunately sharing this is super easy. We've put together the best perks package we could possibly think of, and shot the most amazing scene we could (without giving too much away), and all we need you to do is share it to anyone and everyone, because someone you know IS interested in being a part of this, not just for us, but for themselves as well. Please click the share tools on this campaign or just tell everyone to go to candycornmovie.com! On behalf of all of us here, THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!!!!!!
