ABYZOU: TAKER OF CHILDREN - PROOF A SMALL BUDGET DOESN'T MEAN COMPROMISED VISION

Crowd funding has been an amazing avenue for filmmakers to receive the support needed to bring an idea for a movie from concept, to finished product. Unfortunately, while there are new potentially awesome Kickstarter campaigns springing up left and right every day, the sad truth is, most of them aren't going to reach their funding goals. This is why it's important to not only know how to budget properly for production, but to also know where best to use that budget as well (and have the flexibility to scale your vision appropriately). 

Jordan Pacheco (American Poltergeist) understands this well, which is why his latest project, ABYZOU: TAKER OF CHILDREN, is only asking backers to make up the remaining $2000 in order to get production rolling. If the proof-of-concept trailer below (made on the tiniest of budgets) is any indication, they'll more than likely be adding stretch goals long before the campaign expiration date.

Hailee and her boyfriend, Dylan, return from a romantic trip to Israel to learn they are expecting a child. Their celebration quickly descends to terror when Hailee becomes a surrogate of the demon Abyzou. Unable to give birth to a child of her own, this ancient evil will stop at nothing to spawn her infernal offspring. The young mother-to-be must draw on the strength of her loved ones to protect her unborn child.
