The Wheel In The Sky

Yup, it keeps turnin. Right off the bat, gotta say, we need your pledges.

Working to put things together for the first round of festival submissions and we could use your support. Make a pledge, get a credit in episodes, on IMDB, get T-shirts, DVD's, and possibly more. This is a great way to make sure you get your DVD copy of Monster Cops Series 1.

Currently doing re-writes on the next few episodes. Getting things ready to start shooting, hopefully soon. But how soon we get started really depends on our funding situation. So we shall see what transpires in the next few weeks. In the meantime, there is plenty to prepare for. As I said, doing re-writes, our make up artist is prepping, I'm trying to schedule some second unit shoots.

Stay tuned for a Video Blog, as many of you seem to like it when we do those. Glad you're having fun with those. Please, please, please, help spread the word about our fundraising, click on the IndieGoGo widget and pass it around. While your at it, click on our links to the right and subscribe, follow, like us on Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, etc.

The more followers, subscribers, and YouTube views we can get in, the better.

And if you haven't yet, make some time to watch our latest episode, Monsters Vs. Cops.

Time's Up

The post I made over at Kickstarter.

And so we reach the end of our time here on Kickstarter without reaching our target goal. But the upside is we did get some backers, and we were able to get the word out to maybe a few more people that may have not known about Monster Cops before. Also I had fun making the Vlogs.

Thank you all so, so, so much for showing your support. Thank you to those that have messaged with kudos and positive comments, and especially to our wonderful and amazing backers. It means alot to me to know you guys would put money up to help this project.

Rest assured, this does not mean the end of Monster Cops. As I've stated in previous Vlogs and Blogs, we'll continue to produce this the way we've always done it, with our creativity, our ingenuity, and our passion and love for this series. I get messages every week from different people who find our little series and love it. So we'll do what we can to make em, and get em out to it's intended audience.

As much as we can do with no money, we will still try to scrounge up what we can to help with the marketing, pay for festival fees, and cover a few production costs (mainly food for the cast and crew). In order to really get the job done we will need more than just a few bucks from our day job checks. So if you would like to continue to support us and want to see more of this series, you can make your pledge over at IndieGOGO. It's yet another fundraising platform where you get rewards for your pledge, but there we actually get the money regardless of reaching our goal and you definitely get your reward.

We've restructured the rewards we are giving so we can actually guarantee you those specific rewards for your pledge. So if you want to reserve your copy of Monster Cops Series 1, then you can do so at IndieGOGO.

And if you don't want to transfer your pledge over to our IndieGOGO, that's perfectly understandable, let me at least make a few suggestions on causes and projects you should support.

First off, we're all about donating a portion of DVD and merchandise sales to Cancer Charities, and in the future to other causes, so if you can donate to or Or head on over to and find something worthwhile to donate to.

Also this guy is amazing, and totally deserves his own show:

And other projects on Kickstarter that deserve pledges:
Theater Town: A Documentary about a High School Reunion Show 60 years in the Making.
HENRI 2.0 -- A Science Fiction Short Film
Good Luck, and Godspeed
The Good News "Because good things still happen."
Planet X - A short film, a feature film.

Again thank you soooo much to all of our backers, all of you are awesome, and I truly appreciate you and your support for this series. And thank you so much to Kickstarter for allowing us the opportunity to get the ball rolling on fund raising. So what if we were unsuccessful here, in my opinion it was still a win, we got to spread the word a little further, and we had fun doing it, so thank you to Kickstarter.

Please keep checking back at or over at
Thank you all so much.

Ooh a Blurb!

The countdown closes in on Kickstarter. And now we've got our first review for Monsters Vs. Cops.  You can check out Night Of The Living Podcasts episode where they review Monster Cops in general and specifically the episode Monsters Vs. Cops.

Click here to go to the page where you can download and listen to the episode.

Or look them up on iTunes and while your at it, subscribe and give them a high rating.

The review is around the 1:05:00 mark. And please enjoy some of their great silliness as they talk about it., especially Chiseck's Sheriff Impression. Special thanks to Kelley Kombrinck for saying some really great things. As a matter of fact here's a blurb we'll include on any covers, ads, pages etc.

Lighthearted and Brutal. It's real, hardcore supernatural horror with humor.
The writing is so subtly good.
- Kelley Kombrinck "Night Of The Living Podcast"
I actually kind of leaned on what he said in an email to me. ;)  Talking to him and hearing what he had to say, I got that he really got the episode, and I'm happy that he was able to connect with it. It's always great to find that people get exactly what it is your trying to convey in your work.

We'll be getting more reviews as we reach more press. Especially when we start doing screenings and fests with that episode. Which of course depends on what kind of money we can get in.

Our Kickstarter effort is not looking all that great, but we're not quite done yet. Even if we don't make it, we still have some other opportunities for current backers and anyone else who wants to contribute to actually contribute directly to us. We need whatever cash we can get to help us get those screenings going as well as to help supplement some production costs for these next few episodes.  More on that after Kickstarter is all said and done.

But if you still want to take a shot at helping us get our Kickstarter up there in the next 3 days, then by all means, click and give it a shot.

The horror community is truly one big family and Nathan and his family could use our help to pay for his sister's funeral expenses - obviously, her being so young, no money was set aside for such a horrible thing. If you would like to help one of our own in the horror family, there's a few ways you can go about it.

If you're a bit low on cash, nobody's gonna fault you. You can still help out by spreading the word on this and by reposting this information on your own blog or website, if you have one.
