Luke Kondor is creating Keith - A Glitchy Horror Film (& Other Stories)

Hi.

I’m Luke Kondor.

I write stories and make films and comics and podcasts and stuff. I started writing nonsense on my computer in my early teens and never looked back… and now I’ve got really sore eyes.

I'm here to make my glitchy horror/thriller film, KEITH, tell short stories, and occasionally try out things that wouldn't really fit anywhere else 

Me in a jiffy:

1.) A couple of years ago, I made a short film in 7 days with no money, no camera, and no ideas. It was called Keith. It did well. Now I want to turn it into a feature film.

2.) I started an indie publishing company with my friends called, Hawk & Cleaver. Together we make chart-topping podcasts, genre-busting fiction novels, and kickstarted a comic book about a luchador wrestler in a post-apocalyptic future.

3.) I live in Manchester with my soon-to-be-wife, Cat, our Samoyed dog, Alaska, and our smaller, angrier dog (who is actually a cat), Oscar.

4.) My work has bagged me 2x Vimeo Staff Picks, several awards, has been featured on iO9, Digg, Raindance, Londonist, and C41 Magazine, and played at festivals all over the world... including the London Short Film Festival, the Reading and Leeds Music Festivals, and even the festivals I have in my own bedroom. They run daily and include a Q&A session with myself and my cat.

So why Patreon?

I believe we’re in a scary, weird, and amazing time in publishing. The models are melting, up is down, right is wrong, and creators and fans are now so close they can smell each other (*sniff up*).

It’s time to embrace the scary, do the weird, be amazing.

And that’s where you come in. With your help, I’m going to be able to spend a little more time, a little more money, and a little more soul on making some cool stuff happen.

HERE'S WHAT I'M WORKING ON NOW
KEITH
A glitchy horror film told completely through a computer screen. I’ve made the short, now I want to make it into a feature film.

PROJECT12
A new short story every month. Just for you Patrons. Here’s a free one to get you started.

POST-APOC & HORROR NOVELS
They Rot, Lazarus, & the upcoming Trollpocalypse series. Books I co-write with my good friend, Dan Willcocks.

SMALL PRESS COMICS & GRAPHIC NOVELS
El Marvo was just the start. Let's make comics!

THE OTHER STORIES PODCAST NETWORK
The Other Stories, Horror Hangout, The Story Studio.

VARIOUS OTHER BITS AND PIECES
Music, illustration, games, and the odd vlog.


***

I believe now is the time for innovative storytelling told in interesting and new ways and I think I’m the man for the job.

This is scary, for a man (an Englishmen, no less) to hold his hand out and ask for help, but here we are, so let me ask you...


Can you help me?
Tiers
HELP A HUMAN OUT!
$1 or more per month
By throwing a dollar my way each month, you'll be keeping the fires of Kondor alight.
UNLOCKED
$2 or more per month
Access to all of the locked bits. Short stories. Essays. Some behind-the-scenes bits and pieces, Q&A's, maybe a screenplay or script here and there.
BEHIND THE SCENES KEITH VLOGS
$5 or more per month
Think of this as the equivalent of taking me out for a coffee. As well as access to any locked posts, you get a monthly exclusive vlog/podcast all about how I do my work, making KEITH, and other creative nonsense.
FREE BOOKS
$10 or more per month
  • As well as all the above, you'll get every book I publish in print, delivered to your door.
Handmade Zine
$25 or more per month
Wow... 

Now this is serious money. At the end of the year, as well as everything else you get a handmade zine of all my favourite things I’ve written, full of annotations and notes.
NO WAY! REALLY?
$50 or more per month
Seriously? You want to pledge this much money!?

This sort of funding is going to make a huge difference to my work. Thank you. Along with the zine and the locked posts, I’ll send you a signed copy of any of my books you fancy (UK only).

Also get your name in the credits of Keith.
SIGNED BOOKS GALORE
$100 or more per month
Well this is the kind of money that I didn't believe existed until my tenth birthday. For this, you'll get all of the above, plus a signed print copy of every new book I produce.

WE NEED TO TALK
$250 or more per month
You have a problem. Maybe. I hope not, but if you're willing to pledge this much money then we should have a quick talk about what kind of thing you'd like to see -- books, short films, comics, etc, maybe a producer credit?

Goals
67% complete
KEITH GREENLIGHT

This is the minimum amount of money I need to get the Keith feature film moving forward.
