Hello world!

Have you been checking our promo videos out? Mr. Vice has been up to a lot of naughty tricks and visits. He even made an appearance on the set of one of our tie-in youtube series Knight Vision.

The Kickstarter Campaign is doing pretty well but we still need a lot of support/ We are just over $3,400 right now and have two weeks left so there's still plenty of time.

In other news...We go on the news (and Radio)! The Greg and Dan Show 1470 WMBD interviewed our very own Dakota Kuhlman a few days ago and on Sunday WEEK Ch. 25 news is going to film us on location!
We're very excited about this development and exposure!

Also on Sunday we're having a Crew meeting to discuss the designs we've been working on and how to start building some costumes and cool technical props!

As you can see we've been busy so keep checking for updates and share our kickstarter page to make sure we get funded! http://kck.st/1RLCCi4
Greetings friends and followers!
Some exciting news, we just secured a contract with a local band to produce an original sound track for Remote!

Phantom Noise is a local Rock, Industrial, Metal, and Punk band founded on November 5, 2005.
It's members are:
Brandon Ousley- vocals/bass/samples

Brandon Jones-vocals/guitar/keys/samples

Marc Redshaw-drums/percussion/keys/samples
Phantom Noise fuses dirty guitar rock with eerie electronics, pounding drums and a touch of sardonic pop. Achieving notoriety for explosive, moody, and highly visual live performances, the band has earned a reputation as a promising and innovative act in the Midwestern underground.

Born in early 2006 in the town of Morton, IL, Phantom Noise self-released the single “Wires” and after a few months of rehearsal and experimenting, the trio found themselves performing to ecstatic audiences.

“Diastolic”, the band’s debut album, released in 2010, lays down a surreal wall of sample-heavy rock mutating quirky lyrics and sedated audio nightmares into a thunderous musical assault.

After a 2 year hiatus, Phantom Noise is back with a fury, gearing up and rehearsing ambitious sets for regional live shows, committed to the spread of their infectious electro rock virus. The Midwestern shows are set to begin in May 2016 followed by a brand new EP in the summer.

We are very excited to be working with these talented and inventive artists.

Peoria-based startup Exit Reality Entertainment announced a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign for their upcoming independent film, Remote, on Tuesday, April 5th. The film will produced primarily in the Peoria area. Remote is a psychological thriller and the first chapter of a larger universe, named The Red String Theory.

Exit Reality Entertainment (Facebook) is a new media production startup company operating out of Peoria, Illinois. In addition to independent film production, the company also produces videos on YouTube, and offers media production services. Members include Peoria natives and Bradley University Entrepreneurship and Theater graduates.

Remote, a psychological thriller, follows the story of Daniel Grey in his search for his brother and friends. The movie chronicles the story of their disappearance. This film maintains a true-to-life sense of humor even among dire circumstances, and covers important issues such as missing persons, the dangers of social media, addiction, obsession, and the profound, crippling impact of loss.

The team is attempting to raise a $25,000 production budget for the film, and will begin filming in early June. As of April 13th, they group had already raised $2,711 from 24 backers, in just 8 days. The Director, Jason Snydacker, along with the Producers, Dakota R. Kuhlman and Matthew Pleasant, are pleased to announce they've reached 10% of their total goal.

Crowdfunding is a new platform that allows people from anywhere in the world to contribute small amounts of money, often as small as $5 or $10, to fund a much larger project. Kickstarter.com uses an all-or-nothing funding model, which means that project "Creators" such as Exit Reality, will not receive any amount pledged unless their full goal is met. Individuals - dubbed "Backers" - can select a tier of rewards for backing the project. Funding is not finalized unless or until the full goal is reached.

Exit Reality announced that the film had been casted on April 2nd. The cast includes Peoria and Chicago area actors and actresses, including Ryan Wayne, who recently started in the film Out of the Heart (IMDB, Facebook), another movie recently filmed in Peoria, Illinois.

Backers can pre-order a number of rewards for supporting the project, including: the movie and soundtrack in digital or CD/DVD format, exclusive access to the behind-the-scenes production journal and live stream of production, t-shirts and other memorabilia, concept art, or even thier name and face as a missing persons flyer featured in the movie. To acknowledge the support of the local community, Backers also receive their name listed in the movie credits for only a $5 contribution.

Local industrial rock group, Phantom Noise (Facebook, SoundCloud), has been contracted to produce the full original soundtrack for the movie. Phantom Noise members Brandon Ousley, Brandon Jones, and Marc Redshaw have been performing music in the Peoria area since 2006. They are holding an upcoming show in connection with the film Remote at Peoria Pizza Works on May 6th. (RSVP/Reminder on Facebook).

This film offers a unique opportunity to residents of the Peoria. This is an opportunity to get involved and follow an independent film production from start to finish, and support the arts and a very small local film industry. By supporting this Kickstarter campaign and pre-ordering one of their rewards, you are helping support independent film in the Central Illinois area. View the Kickstarter campaign here.
