While Jennifer Blanc-Biehn’s directorial debut may have wrapped up filming, the fight to bring the movie to life is far from over. The Night Visitor is looking towards Kickstarter to help with the film’s post-production. If you haven’t been following our ongoing coverage of the Night Visitor, here’s a brief synopsis to catch you up:
When a suburban couple hires a new age spiritualist to help with their troubled marriage, her advice to video their lives 24/7 to help reunite the family, turns out to reveal their son is having conversations with an unseen entity, calling itself the Night Visitor.
Normally these Kickstarters are proposed long before the films begin production, hence the name “Kickstarter,” so to see one started after a project has finished filming is a unique tactic. It does make sense though. After all, just because they’re done filming doesn’t mean that they’re done spending money. In fact, the post-production process can often be the most expensive part of making a film.
Here’s what the Kickstarter is going to pay for:
- Final Editing of the project
- Visual Effects
- Color Correction
- Sound Design and Foley
- Sales Trailer
- Marketing Materials – poster, postcards, website design
- Film Festival Submissions
- Deliverable expenses
- Unexpected production overages
