My dad came up with the idea for Carver several years ago, but it never progressed further than an outline. That is, until I found out I needed ankle surgery this past January, which caused me to be off my feet for 12 weeks. I was really down and my dad noticed and asked if I would help him write this script he had been thinking about for a while. Before I knew it, we were writing Carver together which made the 12 weeks fly by. After we finished the first draft, I remember the pride I felt at having helped write a pretty darn good screenplay. I asked my dad if we could make it and of course he said we could try, but it takes a lot of time and money to make a feature film correctly. That is why I am here on Kickstarter- to humbly ask you to help me make my dream of making a slasher film with my dad come true.The Kickstarter perks range from the normal (copy of the movie, etc...) to the outright awesome - if you donate $10 thousand, you get to write your own death scene in the movie, and judging from their video, the more bonkers the death, the better. As Evan Saathoff notes, "It's not a dinner and basketball game with Spike Lee, but it's better than a dinner and basketball game with Zack Braff, probably."
Kickstarter For a Future Weird Movie of the Week
Last time on Weird Movie of the Week, we featured a touching tale of butt demons. This time, we've got a movie that isn't even made yet. Carver is a throwback, 80's style slasher film, beginning with a tragic Halloween accident in the past, culminating in a masked killer dispatching those responsible with a scythe. Yeah, pretty standard slasher formula stuff here, so what's the big deal? I'll let the film's co-director explain:Yep, the movie is being made by 13-year-old Emily DiPrimio and her dad. From the looks of it, she's got a great sense of humor and her bona fides in the horror department are already pretty well established. Plus, she hates CGI gore. That's got to count for something!
