    Please guys, how many of you can tell about a Latvian film. I was impressed about all the work this guys are doing to make true a film in a very difficult location to get funded, Latvia. Hybrid Vigor is an amazing effort with an incredible story behind it. Stolen film and audio many years ago but the idea intact since then and now trying to build a completely independent film. That's courage!
    Personally, I don't like horror movies, but I'm backing this project, Why?
    Because it has power, it has talent and it has a real team working giving a lot, a director trusting so much in his story that his building again was he lost. It's not a corporation and they are doing all the best to make a good movie and show us something different.

    Sorry must to say instead "his building" he is building! (sorry auto-completion)

    Hybrid Vigor Films has executed a beautifully run Kickstarter. There is a drive to get this film produced that deserves to be realized. Their dedication, hard work and focus are sure to lead them to success with this independent film.

    If you haven't felt compelled to support an indie film in the making yet this year, then you truly are missing out on brilliance. Don't wait until the film festival to say "I wish I could have helped them out back then". Help them out now and be a part of the entire process! Watch as it literally unfolds right in front of you... why not?!

    You should vote for Hybrid Vigor because, in a land of blockbusters, crappy special effects, and pompous actors/actresses, there are those who remember that the medium of film is about storytelling, heart, and human emotion. Hybrid Vigor seems to be one of those once in a while gems that really speaks to the human condition of living and surviving in today's world.

    Very well said, Tim!

    If Hybrid Vigor's masterful slow-reveal marketing campaign during its crowdfunding phase is any indication - and I firmly believe that it is - the film itself is going to blow people's minds in the same way that Kubrick's films did in another era. Hybrid Vigor is forcing the mainstream to look at independent film with seriousness and purpose. I'm stunned already. Bring on the completed film!

    a very well marketed KICKSTARTER campaign, that leaves enough mystery to excite, even the un-excitable... show your support, back them & spread the word... INDEPENDENT film matters...

    Hybrid Vigor for the win ;-)

    Absolutely no contest. Hybrid Vigor is the clear winner.
