An abandoned, 97-year-old school will be the site of a new horror anthology featuring 13 female filmmakers — provided the producing team can fundraise just $10,000 for the project.
There are just two days left in the week-long Seed & Spark crowdsourcing campaign for “13 Chambers,” which will be shot in a Seattle building that will be demolished later this month.
“As soon as I saw the building, which is truly cavernous,” said producer Brad Wilke, “I said ‘we have to make a film here.’ From that point, just one week ago, it’s been a race to get things moving. The film and arts community so far has been totally on board: they see the potential and want to help us make this happen.”
Wilke is producing the film with his business partner Ryan Davis and nonprofit entrepreneur Julia Fryett. The films in the anthology will be devoted to “the uncanny, the supernatural, and the sublime.”
“13 Chambers” is slated for an early 2016 release, and the trio plan to expand the anthology idea to other site-specific locations in other cities around the world.
