Hi everyone, wasnt really sure about posting this but I thought I would give it a try.  I am an avid reader here, and sometimes diarist.

I'm an indie filmmaker.  I've been dreaming of making movies for years. Finally after much hardship, I am working on my first full length movie.  

The movie is a supernatural horror movie shot "reality style" same sort of style that "Rec" or "Cloverfield" was filmed in, called, "The Stuart House Recordings"

What I am aiming for is the first fully Transmedia movie.  

A film told, not only via the movie itself, but over the internet, mobile phones, and other media.  

The movie is stand alone of course but the audience can dig deeper and deeper and immerse themselves in the rest of the story.  Think "Blair Witch" on steroids.

We also are the folks behind "the Louisana swamp monster" or "berwick monster" thats circulating across the internet recently.

Here is our post on our site about the monster here:

Louisana Swamp Monster
The movie is designed to look as real as possible.  

So we created We built it (and other supporting webistes) over the last year to create that "real" look.  That Stuart house is real.  All the footage you run across giving more background about Stuart house is ours.

However we are in need of help to finish the movie.  We are financing this completely out of pocket. We could use some help.

Please take a look here:

The Stuart House Recordings

If you could donate we would truly be grateful.  We want to change the dynamics of film distibution.  Allowing people like us to make things we have been dreaming of a reality.

If you can't donate, please go to the bottom of the indieagogo page we are on and just click the "Feature This"  that would help too.

Also, we are based in New Orleans.  Anything that could help us to promote the New Orleans economy, which has never really recovered, would be helpful.  We have alot of creative people out here, just champing at the bit to work on films.  Generally though never getting the chance as the major studios invariably bring their own crews with them.

Finally I was person who was homeless several times in his life.  There, even at my lowest point I never let go of my hope of better things.

I want to help those who can't help themselves. We are donating an ongoing 10% of what we make to the homeless employment programs of New Orleans.  

I will post more about the movie as it progresses if there is any interest.

Again, thanks for your time and patience.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
