It's 1967 - in Arksville, Pennsylvania an ancient demonic evil is about to surface, and it's up to the local police to stop it.

For those big on machinima, the paranormal and horror, this original roller coaster ride into a demonic hell set against the backdrop of small-town America, will have you leaving the lights on.

I am making the world's first CG Horror web-series, called 'The Arksville Homicides', the story of a small-town dealing with a demonic presence in 1967. Unlike most horror stories, it's not up to a couple of brothers or some specialized ghost squad to deal with the problem, it's up to the local police department and a crime family, two unlikely allies, but both parties wanting to protect their town.

SOME CAST

Chriss Anglin brings a lot of experience to the table. He's starred alongside Kelsey Grammar in 'An American Carol' and voiced President Kennedy in 'Call of Duty: Black Ops'

Dallas Barnett has most recently starred as Bill Ferny Snr in The Hobbit - The Desolation of Smaug. As well as being directed by Sir Peter Jackson, Dallas has also been directed by Andrew Adamson (Shrek) and James Cameron (Titanic, Aliens) in Cirque du Soliel: Worlds Away.

If you've seen Spartacus: War of the Damned, you'll know Barry Duffield as the powerhouse known as Lugo. Barry has done a huge amount of work on TV and Movies.

THE MUSIC - Sven Faulconer

Sven Faulconer works with James Newton Howard at his studio, and has assisted in the music on many big films, such as The Hunger Games, The Bourne Legacy, After Earth and others.

THE PRODUCTION
So far I have made 2 Episodes, and keep trying to use Kickstarter as a means of raising funds to make the production work.

With my first campaign, I didn't raise my goal, but was able to gather enough money to purchase sound equipment such as a mic for voice recording, a third computer to help get the rendering time down, and motion scanning devices for doing motion capture. 

The money I use from Patreon will go paying voice actors, getting a fourth and possibly fifth computer in order to get the rendering time down even further.

My goal is to be able to release a 5-8 minute episode each month, at the moment this is not achievable due to massive amount of render times, the first episode which was 3:30 minutes took 11 months to complete with 2 computers sharing the load, the 2nd episode which was 5:30 took 3 months with 3 computers and better and smarter methods of rendering on my part.

Of course after the voice actors are paid for their time and work, the money also helps me pay bills, rent, food, so that I can actually devote a lot more of my time to the project and not be out searching for part time jobs.

So it's getting there, but still a long way to go.

This is where Patreon and YOU can help!

PS. This isn't a pay to see series, it will keep getting made whether you contribute or not, so don't panic folks!

PPS. I don't mind if you only contribute for one month then stop, I understand that money is tight in most places of the world! (believe me, I know this from experience! lol)

So every-time I'm working on The Arksville Homicides (which is most of every day), I'll be streaming live to you, you get to see me looking annoyed at problems, cursing at the computers, laughing when something goes right, and basically talking to myself and thinking out loud (I'm one of those people that does that). ALSO - there'll be special events where the voice actors show up to record their lines, so that'll be streamed too! Exciting huh?

Goals
$27 of $5,000 per Episode
So this may be a stretch, but it's very very expensive to licence existing songs to play on things, my cheapest quote was $2,000 for 30 seconds, these are authentic songs that would be playing on the top 10 in 1967, so they're well known and popular tracks!
