PRLog - Feb. 3, 2014 - MERRIMACK, N.H. -- He’s an average guy who works for a living managing the social networking for a museum. She’s an 800-year old vampire longing to be human again. Together can they break the curse and bring her back?

That’s the plot behind “My DreamGirl Was A Vampire,” a short sci-fi movie shot by Merrimack resident Tim Morgan. “My DreamGirl Was A Vampire” is part romantic comedy, part “Amazing Stories” or “Twilight Zone” science fiction story.

“I’ve wanted to do a vampire story for years,” Morgan explained.  “Audiences love a good vampire flick – and I think we’ve got a good vampire flick. We’ve got the vampire set up as a sympathetic character, which you really don’t see that often in the genre. I set out to do something different, and I feel we deliver on that.”

Morgan is planning on producing the short through a campaign on Kickstarter, a crowdfunding site that helps writers, filmmakers and inventors raise money to bring their projects to life. This is Morgan’s second time attempting a Kickstarter project. Though his first attempt wasn’t successful, Morgan is back with a vengeance and a strong hook.

“Contributions start at $1. Most crowdfunding sites give you a thank you for being an awesome human being at the $1 level. We’re going to do better. If our campaign succeeds, contributors can download an MP4 file of the short – the full short, not a preview – at the $1 funding level. This means everyone who contributes gets to see the movie. I’m not aware of any other Kickstarter campaign giving the completed short away at such a low contribution level.”

Morgan plans to submit the completed film to film festivals for a while before offering it for sale through Amazon Video on Demand. “Contributors will get to see the finished short about a year before anyone outside film festivals does.”

Both the principal actors in “My DreamGirl Was A Vampire” are New Hampshire residents. Billy Pomerleau, who plays museum employee Grant, lives in Milford. Kimberley Miller, cast as vampire Stefanie, hails from Manchester.

Morgan is the author of a self-published novel, “The Trip”, which follows a trio of teenagers who set out on a cross-country bicycle trip as a zombie virus outbreak consumes the world. He also filmed “The Fourth Teaspoon”, a send-up of spy movies and foodie culture.
