Last March, I introduced a number of you to Austin-based filmmaker Chris McInroy, who was in the process of Kickstarting a short film by the name of Bad Guy #2. McInroy was determined to get his short funded, shot, edited and submitted in time for Fantastic Fest 2014, and to that end he'd done something interesting: he brought in his adorably badass 6-year-old daughter, Chloe, to campaign on behalf of the film. It was awesome.
This strategy proved a success: the campaign hit its funding goal, McInroy got the short completed in time for Fantastic Fest, and Bad Guy #2 screened there (to a wildly positive reaction, I might add) this past September. For those of you who didn't make it to Fantastic Fest last year, here's what your Kickstarter dollars accomplished:
Pretty awesome, right? We thought so, which is why we're considering it good news that McInroy's back with another project: Death Metal. A Kickstarter campaign has been launched in support of the short, and (once again) pint-sized badass Chloe McInroy has been brought in to do the heavy lifting. Check this out:
It'd be great to see McInroy back at Fantastic Fest with another grisly/hilarious short (I love this dude's commitment to hilariously gory practical effects), so I have zero problem stumping on his behalf here: head on over to Death Metal's Kickstarter page for more story details, to see some cool concept art, and to find out what sort of cool prizes are available to those who contribute. If you like what you see, maybe kick a few bucks his way. That'd be the metal thing to do.
