Joseph O. Patton: Indie slasher film takes root in the Capital City

  Lights, camera… fundraiser!

  Lurking in the River Region’s shadows a group of locals is bringing a darker, fictional shade of Montgomery to the big screen.

  Indie filmmakers and cast members are counting down to the premier this year of Death to the World, a film described by Director Shane Gillis as a “classic slasher film with a modern psychological edge.”

  But mounting such an effort without the benefit of a studio and financial backers can be daunting.

  So before the on-screen magic can happen, Pudding Moment Productions, which is producing the film, is launching an online fundraising drive. Donations earn perks ranging from a donor’s name in the film’s credits to a walk-on role. Those who appreciate the arts and related local efforts – or who are simply down for an ego stroke - can contribute at 39 days remain in the campaign which seeks to raise $6,800 for the film. The release date for Death to the World will be in October of this year.

  At the site you can also view the five minute teaser, featuring Capital City Free Press Managing Editor Josh Carples. It also includes a personal message from Death to the World Producer and Pudding Moment Productions’ Founder Rick Gardner.
