Richard Poche is well known for being one of the top horror film directors in the San Francisco area.
Online PR News – 02-June-2012 – Alameda, CA – Producing an independent horror film is no simple task. However, Richard Poche has his eyes on the prize and is currently seeking funding for five upcoming zombie tales. Through the use of the Kickstarter.com platform, Poche is hoping to raise enough money to get his plan off the ground and running.
With many years of behind the camera industry experience, Poche is hopeful that his plan will be funded in the near future so that he and his cast can begin filming.
"We are very excited about the five shorts that we have planned out and are ready to film," Poche said. "That being said, this is not something that happens overnight. We need the money to move forward with this project, ensuring that everything moves forward smoothly and that we get the distribution necessary for everybody to see the films."
Fortunately, Poche plans on moving forward with the project regardless of how much money is raised online. This is why he has set a very low milestone, simply hoping to get people involved while also raising awareness of the films.
Any amount that is raised through Kickstarter.com will be used to add the necessary VFX to certain shots. Along with this, some of the funding will go towards recouping the cost of production. The more funds that are raised the more special effects and sound design Poche and his team will be able to add to the shorts.
