iNK Films and We Are Indie Horror Launch Indiegogo For Inked: A Prologue
Los Angeles, CA - iNK Films and We Are Indie Horror are excited and proud to announce the launch of their first crowdfunding campaign for the upcoming horror film Inked. Produced by Neil King and Brian Sapir, the creators of the independent horror community We Are Indie Horror, Inked stars acclaimed actor Nick Eversman (The Duff, The Depraved, Missing) and will be directed by Neil King (The Magician, A Shadow Fell).
Inked: A Prologue is the story of James, a devout person of faith, who recently cause his fiance cheating on him. When reminiscing the situation while walking the streets, James comes across a tattoo parlor. Questioning his faith and having a deep discussion with the artist, he impulsively decides to get a tattoo. After the ink, he falls down a path of temptation which causes horrific consequences beyond anybody’s expectations.
Nick Eversman, who also appeared in the multi-award winning short film Pretty Boy by Cameron Thrower, stars in the prologue which acts as the introduction to the main characters for iNK Films’ first feature film. This is an intense and methodically written story that leads to a climax which no reader has yet to predict. Nick comments on the choice to pick this role. “Anytime you start with a young man on the verge of what seems to be a life altering decision, you immediately take notice. It’s fun to play a character who feels like he had nothing to lose, when that is possibly the furthest thing from the truth.”
Launching Monday February 22, iNK Films and We Are Indie Horror present Inked: A Prologue’s official crowd funding campaign via Indiegogo (www.igg.me/at/inkedaprologue). As independent artist they seek to make their vision a reality and create the short film correctly, so they seek the help of the horror community across the world. For over a year the producing duo has been supporting and showcasing artists from all around the world and they now turn to the community for support on their short film to lead into a bigger and stylized feature length film.
Director Neil King started in the industry 9 years ago with music videos for heavy metal bands. After the move to California, he began creating his own short films. The Magician placed in the top 100 of the ABCs of Death 2 competition and later picked up by Scotsworthy Productions for the World of Death. Later Neil and Brian teamed up to bring forth what has been called “High Horror Art” with the short film A Shadow Fell. This will be Neil’s fourth short film he has directed. This will be Neil’s second pairing with Christopher Sheffield who also was director of photography for A Shadow Fell. Neil has always been fond of the classic 70′s and 80′s horror films so in regards to Inked he states “we will use nothing but practical effects to insure the most gruesome and brutal scenes imagined.”
After the crowdfunding campaign, Inked plans to shoot in May of 2016 for an October 2016 release date.
