Top Vampire Movies: Ours Needs Your HelpPosted: October 6, 2012
Hello everybody. I’ve taken a break from blogging for oh…the past month and a half or so. A lot of that is due to the fact that I’ve been doing a lot of offline writing on various projects…and now, I’m actually going to deviate from my normal genre in this blog posting.
Normally I talk about health issues, but because of a new project I am working on…I want to talk to you about…vampires!
Yes indeed, the children of the night, the undead.
So, my fellow vampire fans!
For those who don’t know…not only am I a copywriter and health enthusiast, I am also an American/Israeli film producer and director. And now, I am working on a vampire movie.
Big deal! You say.
But, wait a second. Let me explain why this is significant!
There has never been an English language (or any language) vampire movie made in Israel. Moreover, there has never been one that was designed specifically for an international audience.
We aim to change that.
Now, you may or may not care about Israel… but I am pretty sure you care about vampires (and a vampire movie). And, one thing many people believe is that there are few, new twists to the vampire mythos. There’s not a lot of stuff that’s truly innovative. Seriously, you’ve got the basics covered in practically every novel or vampire movie since Bram Stoker’s Dracula.
Vampires all drink blood, can’t stand mirrors, garlic, crosses, holy water, and they can be killed by having their heads chopped off, having a wooden stake driven into their hearts or by chaining them outside as the sun rises.
Come on. There has to be more. Right? What if ALL the tales about vampires were simply… wrong? What if everything you thought you knew about them was just one way of looking at things? What if there were other tales? What if the true origins of vampires was really, and truly, more horrifying than you ever imagined?
We’re planning on creating something through “Requiem for the Night”, a brand new vampire movie that takes on the “What if” questions asked above and we plan on answering them.
Now, we’re raising some initial funds through Indiegogo.com, a great crowdfunding website.
I could go into a lot of depth on the wherefore and the why in this blog posting, but I won’t bore you. Instead, I’ll point you to our campaign home where you can learn more about this vampire movie and why we believe you should help us out… either through donating to the campaign… or simply by spreading its link around.
You can check out our efforts here:
And, you can check out a pitch video that we made specifically for this project:
Some basic stuff you should know:
We have letters of interest from some prominent actors such as Ami Weinberg (Steven Spielberg’s “Munich”), Alon Dahan (“A Matter of Size”, and “The Syrian Bride”), Shlomit Mandel (German director, Maria Schrader‘s “Liebesleben“) and Yinon Sapir (Adam Sandler’s “You Don’t Mess With the Zohan“ ).
In terms of myself and my credentials, I am currently directing another documentary feature film produced by one of Israel’s top producers: Mr. Ilan Moskovitch (worked with famous Israeli director, Amos Gitai on over 22 well-known films including Free-Zone with Natalie Portman and more).
Now, we’re in talks with some other, higher profile actors than even these fine actors listed above. And, we’re moving forward with product placement and a lot of other things that people who aren’t filmmakers probably don’t really care about but that are essential to getting fans the type of vampire movie they crave.
Bottom line is that we’re on the hunt for fans like you.
