Crowdfunding Campaign: Stories from the Carnival - Are You Afraid of Clowns?

by Sam Qualiana
(Lockport, NY)

The Project
Stories from the Carnival is an Anthology Horror Film in the same vein as CREEPSHOW or TWILIGHT ZONE: THE MOVIE. We have already raised funds and filmed 2 segments for it including HIS NAME IS CLOWN FACE and STORY TIME. Now we need help raising the funds to film a wrap around story (which will take place at a carnival) and the final segments to the film to make it feature length.
We would love to showcase our hard work on these films as one whole feature, but we need the help to make it happen!

What We Need
We need money for camera equipment, costumes, props, transportation, expenses and food. Most of our crew and talent are working for free! We'd like to pay everyone for their hard work but realistically might not be able to do that unless we go over our goal.

The Impact
Every film I (Sam Qualiana) have ever crowd funded, short or feature film, has been completed and released to the public. SNOW SHARK and THE LEGEND OF SIX FINGERS were mostly crowd funded films and both received worldwide distribution deals. We intend on seeking distribution for this anthology as well upon completion.

This will by all means be completed with your help and we're close to ALREADY having it finished so what we need is an incredibly small amount.

The plan is to get everything done in MAY, but if we don't get the money it might have to be pushed back until we can raise the funds later on. We'd hate to postpone this adventure so help us out, even the smallest amount goes a long way.
