Australian film-maker Andrew Traucki is running a crowd-funding campaign to complete his latest horror film.
The Jungle is the third film, in what the director has called Traucki’s Trilogy of Terror, following on from previous survival thrillers Black Water and The Reef.
The Indiegogo campaign aims to raise funds for the post-production of new film which follows a big cat conservationist and his brother as they aim to document the endangered Javan Leopard in the Indonesian jungle but realise they are being stalked by a deadly predator.
US-based sales production and distribution company Lightning Entertainment has already picked up the worldwide sales rights to the film with international distribution secured for Australia’s IFM/Filmways, France’s Wild Side, Metrodome in the UK, Acontracorrientes in Spain, Eagle Films in the Middle East and IPA in Thailand.
Traucki said: “The great thing about crowd funding apart from helping raise a film’s budget is the dialogue that occurs between fans and yourself – the maker of the work. It’s wonderful to actually connect with your audience and supporters in this way.”
The campaign has just started, with a goal of $16,500. Contributions begin at $5 rewarding contributors with their name converted to a latin species name and announced on the film’s Facebook page. For contributors of above $3000, EP credits are rewarded.
