Just in time for Halloween, Juliet Landau (Buffy The Vampire Slayer) has launched an Indiegogo campaign to fund her new vampire documentary, A Place Among The Undead. The documentary will feature interviews with a host of famous faces from past vampire-themed projects like the creator of Buffy, Joss Whedon, Tim Burton (Dark Shadows), Gary Oldman (Dracula), Willem Dafoe (Shadow Of The Vampire) and authors Anne Rice (Interview With The Vampire) and Charlaine Harris (the Sookie Stackhouse novels/True Blood) among many more. A Place Among The Undead promises to be the definitive vampire documentary and with a roster like that, it's entirely possible.
From the Ingiegogo page:
A PLACE AMONG THE UNDEAD is a first of its kind in many ways…
*It gathers the Who’s Who of the genre, never seen before together in one film.
* The movie transcends the idea of a traditional documentary. It’s a tapestry with interlinking narrative films inspired by the conversations.
* Every Interviewee shares stories that have never been seen before on film.
My husband Deverill and I were self-funding the project, but it has grown beyond our wildest expectations! Legions of the undead who want to be interviewed are multiplying daily. They are rising from the catacombs of Transylvania to the lovelorn halls of High School. No tombstone should remain unturned!
We need partners who GET it, partners who want to make a beautiful project. We met with a number of production companies who want to invest, but based on those meetings, we feel this can’t be made inside the system and be as truthful, authentic and special as it needs to be. We need YOU: producing partners that not only like what we are doing, but really LOVE and understand it!
As you will see from the perks, stretch goals and budget, the more money we raise, the more interviews we can do, and the more stories we can tell. And the more epic we can make those stories.
We are DYING for you to be a part of making the film that you want to see!
To quote Dracula, “We are strong, each in our purpose, and we are all more strong together!”
I hope that we get to work together! Let’s make one for the ages and take a bite out of film history! Please become Immortal with me!
Join the UNDEAD!!!
The fundraising goal is $300,000 and promises perks from posters and t-shirts to set pieces and even a "stake/steak dinner" with Juliet and her husband/producing partner, Deverill Weekes. You can find the full list of perks, the stars being interviewed and view her campaign video for the project on the Indiegogo page. So check it out and help support indie film!
