“Once Upon A Time in Jerusalem” Looking for Funding… All We Can Say is “SUPPORT”!

5/13/14 – Jerusalem

Taken from the fundraiser campaign via the producer, thanks for sharing!

“Once Upon A Time in Jerusalem” tells the adventures of Jesus and Judas in a world full of Zombies, Demons, post-apocalyptic Punks, Mutants, Cowboys, the Roman Army, Monsters, Mythological Creatures and Steampunk technology in the 80’s style that we love.

“Once Upon A Time in Jerusalem” began with the short film, “Fist of Jesus” which received more than 60 awards at fantasy film festivals. We released it online as soon as we finished, so everybody could see it for free. It received over a million and a half views and we were continuously getting emails asking us to do the film, so we’ve decided to launch a IndieGoGo campaign because the only way this film will be possible is with your help.

Synopsis: After wiping out an entire village whilst trying to raise Lazarus, Jesus decides to go to the Oracle of Delphos for advice. The witches reveal to him that he must go on a perilous journey. He recruits twelve ruthless mercenaries, and sets off, ready to burn his name into the pages of history.

We want to make our 90 minute Feature Film in the style of the 80’s B movies, avoiding computer FX at all costs – we do not want digital effects. We want our monsters to be entirely physical, and when a corpse bursts open it looks real and spatters the actors! This means that most of our budget will go towards the creation of physical FX – makeup, characterization, animatronics… The IngieGoGo Video has been specifically recorded for the campaign, the images do not form part of the film which will be MUCH more spectacular!

Our dream is to make a comedy that is a cross between the New Testament and “Mad Max”, with the humor of “The Life of Brian” and the style of Peter Jackson’s early works like “Bad Taste” or “Braindead”. Above all it is an epic movie – Jesus’ journey compared to that of Odysseus or Atreyu in “The Never Ending Story” or any of the “Conan” films, but crazier, in the style of Ash in “Army of Darkness”.
