Today, October 1st, 2014, starts our month long campaign with Kickstarter to raise funds in order to produce a movie based on Jack Heath’s #1 bestselling books Salem VI: Rebecca’s Rising and Salem VI: Chain of Souls! That’s right! The film rights have been obtained to start creating the first of a trilogy of movies called Chain of Souls!
We need your help to get the CHAIN OF SOULS movie to the big screen! Based on the bestselling paranormal book trilogy “Salem VI”.
Help make the CHAIN OF SOULS movie series a reality! Be a part of making a paranormal/horror/thriller film trilogy a reality! The first movie of the trilogy is on its way to the silver screen, but we’re not quite there yet. The film rights have been acquired, the screenplay has been written, distributors are interested. We need to help raise money to get it into production faster and to help promote what will be a new classic that will be talked about every Halloween for years to come! You can help make this happen! Michael Myers has nothing on the wrath of The Coven of witches that have been wreaking havoc on Salem, MA for centuries. Based on the #1 bestselling books Salem VI: Rebecca’s Rising and Salem VI: Chain of Souls the release of the first movie CHAIN OF SOULS won’t disappoint. Blood curdling in all the right places and our main character John Andrews staggers just enough after too much scotch to keep it interesting, but still has the wherewithal to find the clues to uncover his past.
What We’re Doing
Simply put, we’re raising money to market a feature film entitled CHAIN OF SOULS it is the first film in a trilogy, based on the Amazon #1 bestselling books Salem VI: Rebecca’s Rising and Chain of Souls. The cool thing about this modern day take on the Salem witch trials is that the author, Jack Heath is an actual descendant of Rebecca Nurse an accused witch hung at The Gallows AND he’s also got the accusers bloodline coursing through his veins, from the Putnam side of his family. The books have been so successful, that Wonderland Pictures, Inc. acquired the film rights within a year of the release of the first book. Now we need the cash to tell the world about this incredible story on the silver screen. The film has an anticipated Halloween 2015 release date only if we can reach our campaign goal here on Kickstarter.
Why We’re Doing It
The books have already been a proven success. The story is like no other Salem witch trials story…ever. The reviews speak for themselves and it would be a shame not take this film project all the way simply because we have fallen short on the remaining portion of the film’s development budget. As part of our financial commitments we have to be able to show that we have the resources to market the film pre and post-production properly, and we need to be able to guarantee the proper promotion to close the deals with some of the A-List actors. This is why we need your help.
What We Need
At this time we are asking for $150,000 for the first film in the trilogy CHAIN OF SOULS and we are trying our best to find this money wherever we can. We understand that without the support of people like you to get the project off the ground we wouldn’t be able to succeed. Any funds raised in excess of our initial goal will be directly allocated to the marketing and promotion of the film and we’ve got some cool things planned to promote this paranormal thriller and we want to take our backers with us! Help us tell the story of the true Salem witches.
We have confirmed:
- Two #1 Amazon bestselling books in the Salem VI trilogy
- Film contract with Wonderland Pictures, Inc.
- Completed screenplay
- International theater distribution letter of interest
- Paranormal research on witches that rock!
- A sample musical score written by a fan (and professional musician) who read the book and loved it! (Andrew Andron)
- A storyline with a proven success
- Book series inspired the launch of Paranormal Galaxy Magazine and radio program
We Need Your Help With:
- Funding for development, marketing and promotion
- Marketing resources to support local Salem, MA production and surrounding production in New England
- Closing the deal with A-List actors
- We have an established relationship with the city of Salem’s Office of Tourism & Cultural Affairs, as we’ve been working with them for two years on the book promotions, but we all know that going on location in the witch tourism capital of the world takes some doing. Again, we need the funds to do the proper promotion to get this film to the next level. We need to raise this money by midnight on Halloween to ensure the film goes into production, on time and for a 2015 Halloween release.
Please help Chain of Souls get off the ground! We want to attract great actors to this film, grant the multitude of Salem VI fans the wish of seeing this film, and make sure this modern day take on Salem, Massachusetts one that will be talked about for a long time. We need to raise this $150,000 by midnight on Halloween to ensure this movie is on track for a 2015 Halloween release. You could get exclusive Salem VI gear with your pledge! You may even get to have your name in the credits!
Thank you all very much in advance for anything you can pledge! No amount is too small!
