Head over to Indiegogo and help fund our First Feature, Ragnarock’s Cabin!
What was to suppose to be a quiet honeymoon retreat suddenly goes south for Mel and Dan as they find their picture perfect cottage, well not so picture perfect after all. To make matters worse once they get the place cleaned up a group of friends return (return!?!) to find the newlywed couple in THEIR cottage. Apparently the cottage has been a double booked and with neither side willing to leave they tough it out for the night, but in the morning things go from bad to worse as people start disappearing and then bodies start piling up and everyone accuses everyone else of being responsible!
When will the madness end? Who is the killer? And what does that blue puppet have to do will all of this?
This is ‘Ragnarock’s Cabin’, a independent Dark Comedy Thriller filming in Canada this fall!
Who is HPFP? And why are you guys making a movie?
HayPhoto.ca Film Productions is a Ottawa Based independent film group who likes to make movies. We have produced/work-on/supported over a two dozen short films and assisted on several features.
So we decided, why not make our own?
Now you might be saying “Hey! $4000 isn’t a lot to make a movie!” And your right!
However, we already have a benefactor who is providing to us with a stat-of-the-are camera, a Sony NEX-FS700, and supporting lighting and sound gear; which is generally a major cost of a production. In addition cast & crew are volunteering their time to get this film done, we are all very passionate about our craft and dedicated in completing this feature.
Why Raise Money? What happens if you don’t reach your goal?
This funding campaign will allow us to spend more money on the movie such as a larger cottage and invite up more cast (yeah more victims!) and crew to the location.
What do I get?
We are basically pre-selling the movie, so as you can see in the perks, if you donate at least $10 (if you want to donate less we will take it!) you will get a copy of the film in one form or another.
For those who go for the DVD or Blu-Ray option we are going to work our hardest to fill it with bonus material from the film such as bloopers, deleted scenes, alternate endings, maybe even a campfire sing-along.
As a supporter you will also receive exclusive updates on the film’s progress (stills, clips, notes, etc) and we will be sending out surveys to supporters where you will collective help shape the movi, now how about that!
Where does the Money Go?
The money goes straight to covering the cost of filming and any extra funds will be put towards elements that add production value to the movie. Some costs this campaign covers are:
The Cottage Rental
Food For the Actor’s for the duration of the film shoot at the cottage
Pay for gas ($1.31L / $3.573Gal) for people to get out to the remote cottage location.
Additional Movie Props
Cost of Production Insurance
What if you raise more than your goal?
If we manage to raise significantly more funds beyond what we can reasonably spend on the actual Production then we will spend the additional money on Post-Production, Translations/Subtitles, DVD and Blu-Ray Extras (make them better/more) and help off-set the cost of submitting the finished film to film festivals, maybe even have a screening at an Ottawa Theater!
