88 Films are running an Indiegogo campaign to raise funds to potentially get this film remastered in HD for a Blu-ray release from the original camera negatives.

I'm ready for the usual comments but if anyone fancies chipping in you can do so at the following link...

https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/remaster-zombi-holocaust-from-the-camera-negative

I've gone in for the Level 1 package as I think this at least deserves a shot...

Would it help the campaign if a 'splash' was put on the front page or something?

I'm sure there are a few people who'd love this one:

Everything in perk nine but with the addition of an Associate Producer credit on EATEN ALIVE: THE RISE AND FALL OF THE ITALIAN CANNIBAL FILM (with your own imdb listing)

 :-\

I'm probably going to go for the cheapest towards the end of the campaign as it's pay now and I'd rather have a decent release. I'm a bit wary about crowd funding for this type of thing though. Small company, yes but should they be looking at other means and accepting the risk as in the end, it's a business for profit. I'm skint but I've got to shell out £800 to manufacture my next release. I'm only one person and wouldn't make anywhere near the return they potentially may.

Indeed, they've already got enough Arrow style followers who buy whatever they put out, indegogo, kickstarter etc should be used for new companies to break into the market, not because they don't want to take the risk, all business is a risk, try it or don't try it, but don't expect others to send cash by the bucketload, like you said, it's a company for profit, just taking advantage of their brainwashed cult (and I don't mean that as in "cult films") follower fans.

Before I proceed I'd like to say I support ANY project to get these films out there - including this one.... but....

Why do we never see a 'detailed' list of the costs/profit involved in these projects? And I do mean detailed, from the cost of licensing, to disc replication, sleeve/booklet printing, manual work involved. We're only talking about a small paragraph (list, even) and then donators know where their hard-earned money is actually going. Funny, but I don't think I've ever seen anything remotely like a breakdown of costs on any fundraiser I've stumbled on. You?

I think fundraisers in general should be completely transparent - and they should also stop when they reach their goal. I was looking at one yesterday (boozestones, iirc) and the dude wanted $1000 ... it's currently at $16,000+ and there's no indication of where that extra money is going to end up.

Likewise, the recent Argento fundraiser (Sandman) Buried deep in the text was the disclaimer  (which went roughly along the lines of..." "It doesn't matter if we reach our goal, we'll take whatever money is there at the end." Which.... I could be wrong here.... kind of implies they've already got the money but they wouldn't mind someone else (that's you) chucking some more their way all the same. (or did I misread that part?)

Fundraisers are a wonderful idea - but things need to be a lot more transparent before I take the plunge. Case in point, the recent (actually ongoing) LLL fundraiser - at every step of the way I made it very clear the cash went/is going to the lab - there's nothing in it for me - in fact I'm down a fair chunk of cash if we want to start doing the accounts... There was/is one person to pay - and that's where it's all going. Now why can't we see the same elsewhere?

Remember, none of these companies are registered charities - they're business ventures designed to make someone/some people some sort of profit. (Unless of course they're doing it out of the kindness of their heart?)
Well said.

I'm all up for fledgling companies who wouldn't have been able to get off the ground for ventures like this but established companies doing it takes the fucking piss in my book.

I've not much money myself and if I feel like it's worthwhile I'll do it (like your ones so far).

LOL!

Faster than a bullet Inspector  ::)

Thought I'd 'water down' my original post but no worries, it is what I'm thinking.

My breakdown of costs (I'm just guessing here...)

£ 2 - 3000 for the HD transfer from the negative

£1000 Mastering

£1500 discs/boxes/sleeves

....already puts it up to around £5500 - but, in this case, it seems a large chunk is going into the documentary as well.

All added up this one actually makes a lot of sense - the target seems justified to me.

£1000 Mastering

I would actually expect and hope that these two weren't included. They would be paying that out whether they used a sub standard master or not. Bring those two into the equation and we may as well all start a company because there's no need to put up anything yourself other than a licence fee.

I guess the difference could be used on that small tiny detail like licensing  :P (I totally forgot about that...) Yeah, all told, even if the figures are generous it can't be far off the mark.

I suspect nobody at 84 films will be retiring to the Bahamas off the back of this release  ::)

...unless of course they sell each disc for £100! (it might get them a small shack, not sure about a deckchair, though)

Just under £500 to go before reaching the target and 16 days to do it in. Should easily smash it.

For those who don't know 88 Films have also found a new inter positive for Burial Ground, the extra funds will be put into creating a new HD master. Theres also a new perk on the indiegogo page - 1.5 for £20 you get Burial Ground in an exclusive slipcase and you obviously get to help in the restoration.

Just think we could have two Zombie trash masterpieces on Blu in 2015!
