In October, couple film-makers Chaz Fulk and Jenn Stilley were featured in Part 5 of our Women In Horror Month Showcase with their short ‘A House in Walkertown. Now, the pair have completed their next film, ‘Pallbearers’.
Pallbearers is set in 1920’s North Carolina and follows a young sharecropper who agrees to help a stranger carry his recently deceased sister to a final resting place in the wilderness. The deeper the two travel, the more surreal and dangerous the journey becomes.
Jenn and Chaz have funded the entire film out of their own pockets. They make up the roles of director, writer, DP, sound mixer, costume designers and gaffers; creating a truly independent film.
Now that Jenn and Chaz have made a film they truly feel proud of, they want to send it off to as many film festivals as possible- and festival submissions cost money. With whatever money they raise they can put towards these costs and anything left over goes towards their travel costs. Their goal is to raise $1,500, you can view their indiegogo campaign HERE to read more about the project, the perks of being a backer and to give your money. You can also keep up to date on the progression of the film and it’s festival releases on their Facebook page.<p><a href=”https://vimeo.com/124829408″>Pallbearers Indiegogo Video</a> from <a href=”https://vimeo.com/jennstilley”>Jenn Stilley</a> on <a href=”https://vimeo.com”>Vimeo</a>.</p>
