Dan Myrick, the co-director of the indie horror/thriller film The Blair Witch Project, has launched a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo to raise $25,000 for his latest project, Skyman.
“Is self-proclaimed alien ‘experiencer,’ Carl Merryweather, on the path to filming his own alien abduction? Or, is he just another crackpot looking for fame and fortune? Carl himself may not be completely sure, but he is determined to take us on a journey in search of the answer. And that journey ends at the very spot in the desert where it all began almost 30 years ago…a chance meeting with an alien he calls the ‘Skyman.’”
Sharing more details about the project, Myrick stated:
“Skyman is my latest feature film venture and one that I’m particularly excited about. It is a sci-fi/docu-drama that has been a labor of love for quite sometime, inspired by a fascination with UFO subculture. Having worked in the Hollywood system for many years, I know all too well how an original concept can get quickly watered down in an effort to appeal to the masses. This film is a way for me to re-connect with my filmmaking roots and retain a level of creative control that would otherwise be impossible in today’s filmmaking environment.”
Joseph Restaino of Character Brigade, along with Thomas B. Fore and Christopher J. Scott from Domicile Pictures, will be producing the film alongside Myrick. If the project is successfully funded, production is scheduled to begin this spring. Backer perks include HD downloads, wallpapers, soundtrack, DVD, and even artwork. The campaign is set to close next month.
