What is it About?
Human cloning. The dream of modern science. Or a nightmare?
DAY OF THE CLONES is new British feature film set in Manchester, England. This ambitious sci-fi horror movie asks the question: what happens when human cloning gets out of hand?
This is the story of a government scientist who tries to defend a rag-tag bunch of survivors in a remote farmhouse after the clones he has created have taken over the world.
The film combines the claustrophobia of George A Romero's “Dawn of the Dead” with the intense paranoia of John Carpenter’s “The Thing”, set against a realistic backdrop of the industrial North of England. The film has action, stunts, special effects and military vehicles galore!
We will use the latest technology as well as old-school practical effects. We will also be using experienced TV actors, a professional crew made up of local talent, using Hollywood-grade equipment, and a script written by a Hollywood screenwriter.
And now you can be a part of the story!
Why Do You Need Funds?
We try to pay for as much of the film as we can. But we are a tiny outfit, and in order to pay for the actors we want, and to achieve the special effects and exciting stunts we want to film, we need extra funding. This funding will also help us pay for postproduction facilities like editing and sound mixing.
