Oct. 2, 2011 - PRLog -- Independent filmmaker Dawn Fields takes moviemaking to the next level with her leading-edge financing plan: now you don’t have to be a Hollywood mogul to be a movie producer. For her upcoming movie 'Zombie Elves' (sure to join the ranks of Christmas classics) anyone can garner a credit on the film—complete with their name in the listing on the Internet Movie Data Base ( and piles of undead swag—for budget contributions as low as $25. For $500 or more you can be credited as one of the film’s producers.

Flesh-eating zombie elves aren't what anyone asked for for Christmas—but that's what Santa's got this year when his workshop starts turning undead. A live-action horror film that’s got enough blood and gore for every good little girl and boy, 'Zombie Elves' boasts a creative team of Hollywood’s top talent: award-winning screenwriter/director Doug Mallette, and top artists and illustrators who helped create images of the vicious, bloodthirsty elves that Fields’s film will bring to life for its Christmas 2012 release.

Fields plans to do it all with a $600K microbudget—just under what George Romero spent on the 1978 zombie classic 'Dawn of the Dead'—and is raising a portion of that budget on the crowd-funding site Donors get a lot more than the usual promo perks—they get to be part of the production team, with a shout-out in the film’s credit roll and its imdb listing, along with regular updates from the production team, and even the chance for top donors to visit the set during filming or learn how to be a “PA for a day".

But Fields is also heaping movie memorabilia on her crowd-sourced production team: T-shirts featuring a kick-ass, shotgun-toting Santa blasting apart his flesh-hungry elven staff, with the tagline, “This Xmas Santa’s gotta grow a pair”; calendars featuring the watercolor art of top illustrator Nicki Rossignol, with plenty of voracious, insatiable undead elves splattering your White Christmas red; and DVDs of the finished film.
