Eps 2 – Crowd Funding – Director Christine Parker – Fix It In Post

Welcome to another episode of The Future of Horror, an interview podcast featuring new, upcoming talent in horror, The show is a sister podcast to Horror News Radio, the official HorrorNews.Net podcast. With each episode, the show’s host, Doc Rotten, spotlights a director, an actor, a screenwriter, an effects artists, a film maker conquering hurdles and barriers to get their films made, to follow their passion, to make horror films.

Christine Parker is an indy director out of North Carolina with numerous shorts and three feature films under her belt, including A Fist Full of Brains and A Few Brain More. Christine is both filming and editing her fourth full length movie, Fix It In Post, for her film company Adrenalin Productions. She is joining us today to not only talk about her films but to discuss how crowd funding is changing how film makers like herself can finance their next project. She reveals the preparation necessary to start a crowd funding project and the importance of having an established following, a keen eye on networking and a formulated plan for both the crowd funding endeavors and the film itself.

Fix It In Post is currently filming in and around Raleigh, NC. The film is an apocalyptic horror comedy with a dash of zombies, promising to be a hell of a lot of fun. While Christine has already completed her first round of crowd funding at Indigogo, she is continuing her efforts at Go Fund Me in order to raise the money for post production and completing her film score. Like many independent films, Christine is wrapping up the filming of the feature over the weekends through out a nearly year long schedule with the help of fellow NC actors, technicians and effects artists – whom she affectionately calls her extended family. Her partner at Adrenalin Films, Bill Mulligan, not only serves as the co-writer of Fix It In Post but also co-stars in the film, provides the special effects and supports the filming doing every odd job possible. Check out the progress of the film below.

    top 3? that’s tough…Black Sabbath, Lisa and The Devil , and Danger Diabolik…

    • Yeah, Black Sabbath has grown to be my favorite, especially the “Drop of Water” segment – the dead woman in the bed is soooo creeeeeeepy. Black Sunday and Planet of the Vampires are fun too. I still can’t believe he directed Dr. Goldfoot and the Girl Bombs.
