Kickstarter Campaign Launches for ‘Washed in the Blood’

July 15, 2011

TORONTO/REGINA

The kickstarter ‘all or nothing’ campaign to raise $30,000 in 40 days kicks off today to fund Washed In The Blood – director Maurey Loeffler’s most recent project; a western set in Saskatchewan circa 1961.

The funding campaign is being launched through Kickstarter (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/maurey/washed-in-the-blood/) – an online initiative designed to allow a global audience to contribute an investment in the film in return for unique rewards. Washed in the Blood offers incentives ranging from a movie poster signed by cast and crew to exclusive tickets to a private premiere screening with cast and crew. As the contribution increases, so does the size of the reward. Loeffler is very excited about the project and the fundraising campaign, “It’s great to have a way to give back to your investors and involve the community in a project that is very close to my heart… and home!”

Washed in the Blood, a co-production with Regina’s Trilight Entertainment, is set to shoot in Loeffler’s hometown of Leroy Saskatchewan, just another communal aspect of this grassroots production. “We’re really jumping off the deep end with Kickstarter, but I have every faith that the wide community of film supporters paired with social media to spread the word will allow us to reach our fiscal goal!”

Check out Loeffler’s film at http://washedintheblood.com/ and donate at http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/maurey/washed-in-the-blood/

The Kickstarter campaign behind the film runs from July 15th to August 22nd.
