SUPPORTING THE PROJECT

Contribute

WHAT WILL MY contribution do?

Your contribution goes directly toward the production of episode 2 of 'The Love That Would Not Die'. Contributions go towards materials, paying artists, and distribution, all while laying the groundwork for future episodes.
You are supporting an ambitious and incredibly fun project that will long be remembered as a turning point in the history of grassroots low budget puppet rock cult filmmaking.
 

Why do you need my support?

Our first episode was a zero-budget grassroots creation, built on commitment to quality and the sheer joy of collaboration. Working with an absolutely minimal budget, the materials and time put into the project were primarily donated, borrowed, loaned or 'found'...

Technically, we could make another episode by begging and borrowing but you would have to wait until 2020 to see it. At the earliest. Also, we'd like to share this with as wide an audience as possible, which requires resources to help market, distribute and promote screenings at festivals, art house theaters, underground venues and more. We need your help to buy fake blood and tiny wigs, set up dangerous electronics and hire unemployed physicists to join in the effort.

Your support fuels creative inspiration, and create a genuinely grassroots, unique, unforgettable and highly entertaining series. It also helps keep artists off the streets. It's a win-win.

What is this show all about?

'The Love That Would Not Die' is a zombie puppet musical in two parts. It is inspired by a decades of experience in downtown NYC theatre, experimental puppetry, cult film, German expressionism, and more. At it's core, it's intended to be an example of what can be done when commitment to quality of execution is the primary motivational force behind a project. It is a 100 % independent, grassroots collaborative creation intended for all ages.

Picking up where the first episode left off, Part II (for which we are seeking funding) follows the hero, Stan, as he attempts to reunite with his true love and save the world. This second episode also lays the groundwork for a full-fledged episodic series.
