We are thrilled today to be able to report that Harbinger Down, a feature film project and Kickstarter campaign led by Amalgamated Dynamics Inc. (ADI), has met its funding target and therefore will go into production!
The movie will showcase the increasingly-overlooked but enduringly effective craft of practical animatronic and makeup effects, and is billed as a sci-fi/horror film. ADI have quite the pedigree, having in the past provided such effects extensively for the Alien franchise and The X-Files: Fight the Future, plus many more besides. Added to all this, Millennium‘s very own Lance Henriksen is set to star in the film. Our congratulations to everyone involved in reaching this milestone. We can’t wait to see the finished movie, which is expected to be released in May 2014.
ADI co-founder Alec Gillis had this to say about reaching the goal over on the Kickstarter page:
“Tom (Woodruff) and I want to thank all of you for contributing your hard earned money to this crazy cause. In these tough times it’s especially significant that you gave so much. It underscores how important this mission is. We intend to uphold our part of the bargain with as much passion and zeal as you’ve shown in supporting this effort.
Monsters are important. They’ve been with humankind since we became human. We’re going to do everything we can to keep them with us, and most importantly, to keep them real.“
It is not quite too late to contribute to the project. Head on over to the Kickstarter funding page today to lend your further support to the project, see the trailer and videos of Lance speaking about it, some great poster artwork, and much, much more!
