IndieGoGo campaign a go for John Fallon's The Shelter

Today will be a day long remembered as Bruise Productions and Bigfoot Productions announce the launch of their IndieGoGo campaign to help fund our bro John Fallon’s feature-length directorial debut The Shelter.

You all know our boy John, he's The Arrow of Arrow in the Head, the star of Deaden and Dead Shadows and Billy Trigger himself. He's been on our show a couple of times too.

John wrote the screenplay for The Shelter and will produce alongside long-time producing partner Donny Broussard and executive producer/actor Michael Pare (The Lincoln Lawyer, Eddie and the Cruisers) who will also be the lead in the film. VFX wiz Thomas Wilson (James Wan’s The Conjuring, Insidious: Chapter 2) will handle the visual effects.

Here are Pare’s thoughts on the project: "The Shelter tells a great and painful tragedy. Not about global disaster or war or economic collapse but of the individual human heart. The human heart and soul is what all art seeks to unravel. Guilt, regret and shame kill the heart and soul. When our lower animal nature dominates our character our soul is lost."

And here's John’s thoughts on his feature debut: “The Shelter will present you with an eyeful in terms of striking imagery. It will scare the pants out of you as much as it will make you think and move you. This project is the most personal one that I’ve ever written, is unlike anything I’ve done in the past and I believe it is my best work thus far. It’s my passion project to say the least.”

Through IndieGogo, fans can contribute funds and help The Shelter reach principal photography. Contributors may receive an executive producer credit, be part of the actual production or partake in the wrap-party with cast and crew among other cool prizes! The IndieGoGo page and all that it has to offer can be found right here

Synopsis: On a star filled night, widower and homeless man Thomas (Michael Pare) finds shelter for the night when he falls upon a vast two story house with the lights on and an inviting open front door. He strolls on in thinking he just caught a lucky break and for a while, it would appear as though he did. But soon enough, he realizes that the house won’t let him leave, as its doors are all locked while its windows cannot be opened or broken. Destiny has brought Thomas to this place. What does it want from him? Will he survive the ordeal.
