“We are very excited to see our passion and hard work turn into a full-service business with unlimited potential to expand,” said Jessica Barnthouse, Co-Founder and Director of Video Production at Wicked Bird Media. “Our combined marketing and project management experience, creative support, filmmaking skills and resources turn Wicked Bird Media into a digital content and video production powerhouse that can take on jobs of all sizes.”
Wicked Bird Media is also committed to helping increase independent development and production in the area, and has future plans to expand into a hub for filmmakers that will offer affordable services, equipment rentals and resources. Additionally, the company is in pre-production on the documentary “Something Wicked This Way Comes” about the New England horror community. The film will feature genre luminaries, local directors, actors, horror fans, and natives discussing the history and influence of the area in contemporary horror, and will help determine if its community is strong enough to support an independent film industry.
“It’s our goal to bring more productions to New England so that we can support a solid and sustainable industry that is capable of creating jobs,” said Stacy Buchanan, Co-Owner and Director of Operations at Wicked Bird Media. “And Something Wicked This Way Comes will not only dissect the popular conventions of the horror genre and identify how they're driven by the eerie settings, history, and social issues of the area, it will also help us discover if the its history and passion are strong enough to help grow an independent film industry.”
Wicked Bird Media will be setting up a 30-day crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter to secure the capital needed to produce and locally staff the micro-budget film, and has designed backer-exclusive packages that include access to a digital production diary, behind the scenes footage, VIP tickets to the film’s premiere and Producer credits.
