The chevrons are gone because so much time has passed. Trust me, when you see the way the mask looks in the dark you're going to love it! And Jersey has plenty of backcountry! It's got a large section of the Appalachian Trail! 

I also like to think of Crystal Lake like Springfield from the Simpsons. It could be anywhere. Different locations also give you unique environments. I think about the Georgia location for Jason Lives. Or the Cali setting for Parts 3-5. It's certainly not NJ in those movies, but we still enjoy them! 

 

Thanks for the comments though! I am happy to answer any other questions in this forum as well! 

In other news, NHA has become the top horror project on Kickstarter!

Hey Everyone! After 1 week of campaigning, we have reached $11, 356! in funding. That's 28% of our total funding with 22 days left to go! Thank you to everyone at F13th Game Forum who has contributed to the campaign, no matter how big or small. 

So far, response to the trailer and campaign has been overwhelmingly positive. Trailer views alone have jumped by almost 1000 since we launched the campaign.  

Even more important, fans are getting excited for this! I have had so many great conversation with Friday the 13th fans this week. 

Tomorrow, I will be recording a podcast on geekandsundry.com. As soon as I have info about the episode, I'll post it up!

Nice lighting!


 Men called him Thu, and as a god*

in after days beneath his rod

bewildered bowed to him, and made

his ghastly temples in the shade.

Not yet by Men enthralled adored,

now was he Morgoth's mightiest lord,

Master of Wolves, whose shivering howl

for ever echoed in the hills, and foul

enchantments and dark sigaldry

did weave and wield. In glamoury

that necromancer held his hosts

of phantoms and of wandering ghosts,

of misbegotten or spell-wronged

monsters that about him thronged,

working his bidding dark and vile:

the werewolves of the Wizard's Isle.

Was really sorry to see it didn't hit the KS target (and that I couldn't chip in any contribution myself, either).

 

It looks like a really cool project and I have nothing but best wishes to you guys in getting something done!

Thanks guys! Yes, we were able to figure out some funding through some back channels. We were approached by a few private backers who said they'd cover the cost of principle as long as we matched their investment. We believe in this project so it was a no-brainer. 

 

We will be returning to KS for a post "Finishing Fund." This goal will be much lower than our original and allow us to offer rewards at a much more affordable level. 

 

Once everyone is up and ready we'll make the rounds!

Thanks for the replies.

 

Powell - No we did not go on hold. Instead we were contacted by a very big Friday fan who wanted to come in and pool resources to get more of it completed. This time around we created a brand new trailer based on scenes from the actual film rather than a "concept trailer" only built to sell the idea. We still have to film the ending which requires a lot of practical fx and equipment. Once filming is complete, the film will go through post-production - music, sfx, vfx, titles, color, di, and final output. 

 

Our original intention was to make the film 22 minutes - at the minimum - much like a 1/2 hour tv episode. However, after just tallying the footage we have to date, we could possibly be between 30-40 minutes.  

 

Dave - We have a lower goal this time around so I was able to make the tiers more simple and affordable.

This really isn't public info, but hell, we have 4 days to go and you both have been around the project for a while so....

1 minimum for a credit

5 for (5) piece sticker pack.

15 for custom enamel pin designed to look like our mask

25 for shirt (1 of 2 choices) Black NHA Logo shirt or a Yellow Original-Designed Camp Crystal Lake Councilor Shirt (See below) 

50 for 22x28 poster re-designed by Crash Cunningham himself

100 for a bundle back. Everything there, including both t-shirts, and the NHA duffle bag

 

First 25 who donates 100 or above is eligible to attend a secret screening of the film at the actual camp we filmed it at in the middle of the woods.

 

All who donate 150 or over are invited to the screen + receive a screen used prop. 

250+ get producer-level credits (Associate - EP) and a major props all based on separate tiers. 

 

This is kinda of what the shirt will look like. Don't mind the text, this is a teaser image our marketing campaign. Quality is also shit due to it being shared from facebook. 

Thanks for keeping up with us. I'll post the link in here when we go live Friday!

Rad! The pins are cool. I just got my first test prints. 

 

Goal is $13,000 this time around and we got to 27,500 last time. 13 isn't exactly all we need but it'd be enough to get us through principle for sure after KS and the Rewards. 

 

More importantly, we want our backers to walk away with something this time.

So what was the inspiration behind the look? Like where in the films would this take place or what incarnation of Jason is this meant to represent if any?

I get the idea of your marketing campaign but without knowing or caring who Kyle is- what incentive is there to actually be on #teamkyle?

Great questions! Thanks for asking. Here are our answers...

CrazyRalph - The inspiration came from blending my favorite costume elements from over the years with tweaks in places I thought could be an improvement. Take for example the jacket. In JX, FvJ, and 2009, I was not a fan of it, at all. Not the idea of it, but rather the execution never sat quite well with me. It was bulky, distracting, and such a departure from the classic look I just never really bought in. 

My theory was that if the jacket was less bulky and resembled more of a beefed up version of the classic dickies button up, it would have a better shape and feel when on the character. 

Pants and boots are straight forward. No utility belt, machete holder, or anything else that could potentially pull the viewers attention away from the upper body, and more specifically, the mask. 

The hock was custom created by CFX in Louisiana and it the biggest change.  Every replica hock I bought and tried did not feel right with the new look we were going for. Also, replicas tend to be thin and flimsy. This mask is thick, solid as a rock, with a texture and shape based off of some old, creepy ass photos of real masks. 

It has no damage because it is not the original mask from 1980's. That one is long gone and Jason simply rummaged through the old sports equipment bins at the camp for something new. We don't show that moment in the film, but we do show where the sports equipment was kept. 

The Hood and Arm appliances are also from CFX and can actually be purchased by anyone. They are silicone based, super comfy, flexible, and look great. I used to have a more accurate screen damaged latex hood, but it was stiff and continually popped out of my shirt every time I moved to fast. 

If I didn't get the custom hock made, I probably would have designed the hood with all the bells and whistles in terms of damage. Our FX artist Kelsey is actually going to work with me after this film on a custom hood and hands for future cosplay and film projects. It would like as if we got the Paramount Part 9 we always wanted to see. 

 

As far as where it takes place, simply 37 years after the original murders. The Night at Camp Blood is considered one of the most famous of the crimes and single day massacres in American History. Think Charles Manson, Ted Bundy, Jim Jones...Pamela Voorhees. However, the details on the events after that came after are hazy and considered simply legend in modern day society.

 

More than ever, we live in a world of fact checking and logic. In that world, there is no room for undead corpses to be walking the Earth, right? At least, that's what our main character thinks when he accidentally finds the camp. 

Speaking of which, in this story the camp has been untouched since 1980. Basically, however Steve Christy and the kids left it, that's how it stands today except weathered an worn. There are elements of the crime scene still around as well as personal items and belongings. I know it goes against part 6 canon, but being that all F13th fils often get leeway on continuity, that's where I am using my get out of jail free card. 

We also explore a new theory on where Jason and his mother would have lived while at the camp, but I'll stop there and let you figure that out when the film is release. What I will say is that this film scratches the surface of a much bigger story and hopefully we'll be able to continue this into future chapters. 

 

------

 

BewareofBears - Our actor Andrew Leigthy is an established model and up and coming actor. He already has a group of fans (mostly ladies) who follow his social media accounts and other things of that nature. More than anything it's for them and they do support him. He's also a charming, lovable guy who we think will win points over with the fans as well. 

Trust me, I didn't expect anyone from the Friday Fan sites to pick team Kyle and was surprised when I saw that tag popping up more often than Jason at one point. 

------

 

Thank you again for your interest in the project. If you have any more questions just let me know. I'll try to check in every so often.
