Hope you are all well, been a busy week with making preparations for my travel to UK. So here is the thing: I found a very exciting project on Kickstarter that is a new take on the vampire film genre and is having a super combination of people working on it. Already it is has surpassed its goal and is now trying to reach its first stretch goal.
Children of the night…I give you: BLOOD KISS by Michael Reaves
Blood Kiss is a vampire noir film created by the legendary Michael Reaves, for those of you who haven’t heard of him, he is an award-winning writer who has worked on many prolific 80′s/90′s cartoons and TV shows such as Batman The Animated Series, Star Trek TNG, Twilight Zone, He-Man, Spiderman and his Amazing Friends, The Incredible Hulk, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and list goes on. He has been writing for well over 40 years and is still doing now despite that he is suffering from Parkinson’s Disease.
This film will feature collaborations from a number of prolific people in the comic book and TV world such Neil Gaiman (creator of The Sandman comic), Amber Benson (who acted in many TV series) and Tom Mandrake who has illustrated on a lot of Dark Horse, DC and Marvel comics.
So what is the story about? Blood Kiss offers a fresh take on the vampire lore, instead of them being supernatural beings, they are a result of DNA-altering symbiotic micro-organism that changes people into having traits that are common to traditional vampires such as super strength & speed, immortality and having allergy to sunlight/silver, the difference is that these vampires will retain reflection and won’t have an aversion to crosses.
The setting will be in Hollywood during the 1940′s and this vampire film will be mixed with a detective/film noir theme. Intrigued? You should be, I for one am bored with a lot of vampire films coming out lately and this is a fresh concept that I simply adore and I am looking forward to seeing this film.
Blood Kiss is having a goal of $50K which was reached in around two weeks and is ending in 16 days (June 14th), it has a stretch goal of $100K which will provide them with higher quality of film production, so please help them raise another $50K
The rewards are numerous, they include artworks, shirts, digital downloads, mentions on their social media networks, Associate Producer and Producer credits, role in the film, invitation to premiere and many more.
Support, Pledge and Spread the word about Blood Kiss…A vampire film that will land a sexy but deadly bite of awesomeness on you!
