Short Film Supports Women Behind the Camera in Horror and Broader Film Industry
STORAGE, a short horror film from producer and award-winning screenwriter Kelly Krause, launches its funding campaign on film-centric crowdfunding platform Seed&Spark. The campaign aims to support women behind the camera in the horror genre and broader film industry and will run for 30 days from March 31 – April 29, 2022.
Krause is the Co-founder of Nyx Horror Collective, a Co-producer for micro-short film festival 13 Minutes of Horror, which streams on Shudder, and a Co-Founder of the Stowe Story Labs/NYX Horror Collective Fellowship, which benefits a woman horror screenwriter aged 40 and above.
She is joined by cinematographer Elle Schneider (Woodlands Dark and Days Bewitched: A History of Folk Horror, 18 ½), VFX whiz Elaina Scott (Spider-Man: No Way Home, Grimm), Ashley Lynch of Gingerbreadgirl Post (13 Minutes of Horror, Ninjago), Bianca Beyrouti (Bring me an Avocado, The Singing Bones), and Berkeley Sound Artists (Marvel’s Runaways, 12 Hour Shift).
Additionally, closed captions and audio descriptions will be provided by Jean Li to ensure accessibility for all audiences.
With funding, STORAGE will cover crew wages, post-production costs, and marketing to ensure the film reaches as wide an audience as possible.
“The global pandemic has meant setbacks for women, including those in the film and horror industries,” says Krause. “The number of women filmmakers decreased by 25% between 2020 and 2021—STORAGE is our response to those challenges, addressing industry parity and transforming how we as a whole think about women filmmakers and genre.”
