Years back I discovered a little-known zombie flick titled Graveyard Alive: A Zombie Nurse in Love from producer-director-team Elza Kephart and Patricia Gomez. The film earned the Kodak Vision Award for Best Cinematography at the 2004 Slamdance Film Festival, Best Crossover Genre Film at the 2004 Rhode Island Horror Film Festival, and was nominated for multiple awards at the 2005 Cinevegas Film Festival. Graveyard Alive showcased great potential in the female-horror filmmaking duo and now they are back with their second feature, Go In The Wilderness, a film based on the little-known myth of Lilith, Adam’s rebellious first mate.
The film has been shot and edited, with only the sound and music left to complete and they are looking for help via Indiegogo, an internet platform which enables projects to accept online financial contributions. Their goal is to finish the film by April 2013 in time to apply to the Toronto International Film Festival. With their crowd-funding campaign anyone can help bring this story to life and make a contribution to its success by visiting Indiegogo.com.
Go In The Wilderness was 100% independently financed, with generous support from friends, family, savings and credit cards. They still need to raise an additional 30,000$ for sound post-production, for which they have teamed up with Genie Award winning sound designer Martin Pinsonnault, and Gemini Award winning composer Robert Marcel Lepage. They are close to reaching their goal and with a little help from the film community, Canada might just have another kick-ass-genre film-busting team to add to their current roster.
Here is all the info you need to convince yourself to contribute as much as you can.
Go In The Wilderness tells the story of Lilith, Adam’s rebellious first mate, and her mysterious Guardian, as they forge an uneasy alliance on their journey back to Eden. Once in the Garden, they meet Adam and his new mate Eve, and realize that all is not as it seems in Paradise… Shot against the striking backdrop of Quebec’s remote North Coast, Go In The Wilderness presents a bold new version of the myth of creation.
