MONSTER KITTEN On Air: Puppet Infused Female Led Horror Comedy DEAD AIR Hits Goal Following Successful IndieGOGO Campaign
Dead Air is an independent comedy horror film full of blood, fun and mysterious gremlin creatures
The Fan Carpet are delighted to announce that our friends over at Fraught Productions have reached their goal to bring Geoff Harmer’s DEAD AIR to life!
Dead Air is a puppet infused comedy horror short film that strives to create a fun ride with its own unique look and feel. We love practical fx, so as much as possible will be done in camera to give our film that hand crafted feel. Using Henson influenced hand and rod puppets to bring our gremlins to life, everything, from our plane to full sized creatures will be created by use of miniatures and live effects respectively as opposed to doing the work digitally in post production.
Set on a plane travelling to a final gig, Dead Air tells the story of Monster Kitten, an all female punk rock band who end up on a flight with some nasty little creatures who like to bite and infect their victims to the point of all hell breaking loose at 30,000 feet. With the help of their instruments, a tape recorder, a dodgy crew member and a bottle of piss, the girls try to fend off the evil to get to play their final gig.
Starring Stacy Hart, Charlie Bond, Kate Marie Davies, Johanna Stanton as Monster Kitten.
Stacy Hart - The Drummer
Stacy was the star of our award winning short film 'Selfie' (see below), previous to which she also appeared in a number of feature films, including the Universal Picture's film 'Get Real', 'Things to do before you're 30' and the Danny Boyle film 'The Beach'.
Kate Marie Davis - The Bassist
Kate had a great start to the year with her #ShowreelShareDay Twitter frenzy causing a storm in January this year. She also stars in the feature film 'Escape from Cannibal Farm' which hits screens next month, with other features currently in post-production.
Charlie Bond - The Singer
Charlie has had some great roles over the last couple of years in films like 'Vendetta', 'The Fall of the Essex Boys' and 'Strippers Vs Werewolves'. She has also had success with her stage performance as Lucy Westenra in 'Dracula' at the Leicester Square Theatre, London.
Johanna Stanton - The Guitarist
Johanna is an award winning actress, having starred in a number of films including 'Nightmare Box', 'Grave Tales' and the TV Movie 'Compulsion' alongside Ray Winstone. Johanna will be seen later this year in the Geoff Harmer directed short film 'Smile' as well as the feature film 'Injustice'.
Now that DEAD AIR can go in front of the cameras following an incredible £10,194 GBP raised a further £6K+ is needed for the post production on the film.
Do all the SPFX mould castings and practical fx on set
Complete the puppet builds
Bring the actors, crew and equipment to set
Pay for the set - our fabulous plane at Black Hangar Studios
Pay for our miniatures for exteriors
Our post production budget would allow us to bring our Hollywood Star on board, pay for post production edit/sound/soundtrack/festivals etc. The more we get, the more we can do with the film.
Ultimately, our goal remains the same. To produce a kick ass concept short to show investors that a feature film of Dead Air SHOULD and WILL be made!
