If you’ve read my about me, you know that I’m from Pittsburgh and that the Romero films have a special place in my heart. So you can imagine my excitement when I saw earlier this month that George’s son is working to make Origins, a prequel to Night of the Living Dead. It has already gotten support of several businesses. They are crowd sourcing the film through indiegogo.com, looking for $150,000 for pre-production. They’re still far from their goal, so any contribution helps. There are perks given for varying levels of donation. These include your typical swag and signed merchandise by Cameron Romero. For anyone with a few hundred dollars sitting around, you can get 2 tickets to the premier or a severed limb signed by Cameron and the cast. If you have $10,000 to spare, you can be a zombie in the film.
Crowd funding is becoming a bigger option in the movie industry as of late, especially for horror films. It can be a nice and easy way to get items to add to a collection. What are your thoughts on Origins, and crowdfunding in general?
