Higher Universe Pictures Needs Your Help!!!
If you know Brandon Rhiness and Adam Storoschuk, you may be familiar with Higher Universe Comics. They publish several on going comic book series such as Ghoul Squad, Stargirl, Misfits, and The Boy with a Balloon for a Head. They've decided to kick it up a notch and delve into making films.
Their first film project is a short film called "I'm in Love with a Dead Girl." The story is exactly what it sounds like. (But there's no zombies.) "I'm in Love with a Dead Girl" is a dark comedy about a strange, lonely man who can't find a girlfriend, so he turns to the graveyard to find the perfect date.
The script was written by Brandon Rhiness, who will also be directing. The film will star actor and professional fight choreographer Afton Rentz, and feature a great group of talented actors.
This past August they shot two episodes of a web series called "Mental Case." It was also written and directed by Brandon Rhiness, and stars Afton Rentz (who also co-produced). The first episode is scheduled to be launched December 1st. In the meantime, you can check out the trailer for it here:
"I'm in Love with a Dead Girl." is Higher Universe's first crowd funded project. They have produced and published all of their comics with their own money. Considering the fact that the costs are much higher when producing a film, additional help via crowdfunding is needed, to bring "I'm in Love with a Dead Girl." to life, (no pun intended). The guys at Higher Universe are firm believers in paying the talent that they employ. The cast and crew for this short film are all talented in the own right. and in order to provide the best possible product to the public, adequate capital needs to be acquired.
With that being said, the guys at Higher Universe urge everyone to help out the cause by donating, and/or sharing the link listed below with as many supporters as possible. Follow the link listed below for more details.
