The first 10 days of the CARVER Kickstarter campaign are in the books and we are almost at $5,000.  I am blown away by all the support.  We have 167 backers and the majority of the backers are people who were not previously connected to us or the project in any matter.  When we look over the backer list we know maybe 10 percent of the backers.  That is very rare for a campaign of our size.  Now the bigger projects like Veronica Mars, Zach Braff, and Spike Lee of course are going to have a large percentage of people who don’t know them personally.  I’m not a celebrity, I’m just a girl from South Jersey trying to make a slasher film with her dad and a lot of people have responded to this positively.

There has been some negative response but with anything you are going to have people who aren’t going to agree with or like what you are doing.  I respect everyone’s opinion that doesn’t mean I am going to respond or agree with you.  I will not be baited by people who are trying to upset or anger me.  I will not waste my energy and when you engage with people who are trying to troll you give them the power.  You are giving them exactly what they wanted, attention.  Not everyone is going to like what I am doing and I am fine with that but when you attack me or my dad personally without even knowing us that is just foolish and not worthy of response.

The gang at The Living Corpse Comic have provided us with the first concept sketch of how we envision CARVER.  Carver’s mask is designed to look as if the killer fashioned the mask out of an actual pumpkin and then secured it with twine.  I am loving what they have come up with so far.  If you are into comics we have a great perk on the Kickstarter campaign where The Living Corpse guys will draw your image comic book style getting killed by CARVER!  How cool is that?  Check out the Kickstarter by clicking HERE!

I would just like to thank everyone who has supported the campaign so far.  It truly is humbling.  If you haven’t pledged to the campaign I hope you will consider doing so in the next 20 days.  We have a long way to go but with you help we can do it!

Carver Kickstarter is LIVE!

The Kickstarter campaign for CARVER went live yesterday and in the first 13 hours we have raised close to $500.  Not too shabby considering we aren’t Veronica Mars.  I am so proud of what my daughter put together.  She is truly talented and regardless of the outcome of this Kickstarter I know she has a bright future ahead of her.  If we don’t achieve our goal I hope she isn’t crestfallen.  Knowing my daughter like I do I know that no matter what happens she will keep moving forward.

Check out her KICKSTARTER!  If you can please donate or share the campaign on social media.  For as little as $5 you can own the movie.  Thanks again!


It’s getting closer.

We are only a few days away from the start of the CARVER Kickstarter campaign and we are full of nerves and excitement.  My daughter Emily has been working so hard on the pre-production for CARVER.  She has been blogging regularly, writing a weekly column for Moviepilot.com, and assisting me on the Kickstarter preparation.  I have never seen a 13 year old work so hard or be this dedicated.  Hell, I don’t think I have ever worked with an adult that has worked as hard as Emily.  I am doing everything I possibly can to make this campaign successful.  I have always taught Emily that if you work hard you will achieve.  I know all of her hard work pay off.  When the campaign succeeds I think it will embolden Emily even more and make her work even harder which in the long run is what matters.

Emily hasn’t always had things easy.  She has seen from a very early age what it is like to struggle and I think that has really helped her build character.  I am constantly amazed by her wisdom, determination, and thoughtfulness.  I am so proud of the person she is turning in to.  While most kids her age are playing video games and spending countless hours online, Emily is putting together spreadsheets, prop lists, character breakdowns…the list goes on and on.  Don’t worry, I find plenty of things for us to do that remind her that she still needs to be 13.  The last thing I want is for her to look back someday and think she missed out on being a kid.  That is why it is important to find that balance.  I want to stoke her creative passion and encourage her to work hard to achieve her goals but also make sure she knows that sometimes no matter how hard you work things may not always go your way, and that it is okay when that happens.

I know once the Kickstarter campaign begins everyone will see what I see.  That Emily is worth banking on and that she is going to make one amazing horror film.  I hope everyone will help her once the campaign launches.


Busy, busy, busy…

Thank goodness my daughter has picked up the slack when it comes to blogging over at www.carvermovie.com.  If you haven’t read her blog you should, she is very articulate and a lot of fun to read.  She has been doing an amazing job keeping everyone posted on CARVER’s status.  We have filmed the Kickstarter video and are currently hard at work editing it.  We will probably launch the video in September.  In the meantime we have been hard at work scouting locations, going over concepts for our slasher’s look, putting together cast and crew wish lists.  We have even gone over craft service ideas, music, prop lists, anything that goes into making a production successful.  Yesterday we visited an amazing cornfield.  It will work perfectly for the film and perhaps a teaser trailer we have been dreaming up.  We would like to have a teaser trailer ready for the NJ HORRORFEST.  We have a couple of concepts in mind, right now we are just seeing what will work the best and at the same time not break the bank.

I have never seen a 13 year old work so hard.  She is driven, talented, and tenacious.  One thing for sure, I am going to do everything I can to help her make this movie a reality.  I will try and blog more but as I said previously, Emily has been blogging frequently and honestly she’s better at it so go over and check her out.  www.carvermovie.com

My dad has been asking, or should I say hounding me to blog about what we have going on so in the interest of my sanity I am going to begin blogging on a regular basis.

I should start by introducing myself.  My name is Emily DiPrimio and I am 13 years old.  Last October, we began production on a web series titled Violet, where I was playing the lead character.  During filming I noticed that if I was on my feet for any length of time my ankle would become swollen and bruised.  My dad took me to an orthopedist and it was found that I needed ankle surgery to repair my ankle.  A spacer needed to be inserted between the bones in my ankle and this would require me to be in a boot for 8-12 weeks.  This put Violet on hold and it made me depressed.  I was really into Violet and thought it had great potential.  My dad, noticing how down I was told me about a slasher script he had been working on and he asked me to read it over and help him with the dialogue for the younger characters.  Before I knew it we were writing a screenplay together.  I never knew how much fun it would be to write a screenplay!  Creating a character, watching it come to life, and in the case of a slasher film killing them in the goriest manner possible was amazing.  Writing the screenplay with my dad made my recovery time fly by.  Soon after the boot came off my dad asked if I would like to direct this film with him.  I can’t describe how excited that made me.

Since then we have been working hard on pre-production.  I’ve worked on my dad’s movies in the past but I never realized how much went into getting ready to film.  Right now we are concentrating on raising the funds necessary to make my dream a reality.  We worked hard on creating a Kickstarter concept we hope will appeal to both horror and non-horror fans.  We film the bulk of the kickstarter next weekend, I’m getting a little nervous but in a good way.

We have a bunch of talented people helping us with the Kickstarter and I know that it’s going to look and sound great!

That’s about all for right now…happy dad? :)

It is going to be a busy week.  Getting everything in order for the Zombie Bikini Car Wash and Carver production kick off party.  We have put together what we hope to be a memorable day for all who come out and support us.  Emily has been working hard getting everything together that we will need.  She may only be 13 but she works hard, my girl is relentless and I am so proud of her.  She is busting her butt to make her dream of co-directing a slasher movie a reality and I am doing everything I can as well.

We are a couple of weeks away from filming the bulk of our Kickstarter video.  Emily and I have written what we feel is an engaging and entertaining script that will appeal to both horror and non horror fans.  She is constantly trying to come up with unique ways to raise the necessary budget.  She will not be denied.  I love her spirit and I know she is going to succeed.

So come on out to the Zombie Bikini Car Wash/Carver production kick off party and help Emily achieve her dream.
