Exploring Entertainment in Florida's 850 & Beyond
Local film production seeks to raise funds through crowdfunding to help make Melany Rose a reality.
Pensacola based Zero House Productions has been working to bring the full-length Melany Rose film into reality. “We found a great cast and crew,” shares director/writer Javan Garza, “but as we headed into production we knew we would need additional financial support to make the movie we want to make.”
Melany Rose is a take on Project MKUltra, a government funded mind control program operated covertly through the CIA. “I wanted to take those concepts about human experimentation and twist them into a present-day atmospheric horror movie,” says Garza.
“We landed on a great location, have a cast I have the up most confidence in, and have a growing crew of dedicated professionals – but it gets expensive fast to make a full-length movie. From costumes, special effects, and dressing out the location space – everything that is shown on screen has a price tag,” states Garza of the filmmaking process. “Then logistic issues like generators, additional production gear, even down to having food and water on set – so many pieces come together behind the scenes too.”
With that, an Indiegogo campaign has been launched to support Melany Rose. Perks range from a $1 contribution which gets an official ‘thank you’ in the film’s credits to posters, scripts, t-shirts, and even an opportunity for an official producer credit.
“I am grateful to be surrounded by amazingly creative people. We want every of angle of Melany Rose, from the music to the lighting to be our best foot forward. I’d like to encourage everyone to take a moment and follow us across social media, invite your friends to do the same, and help us get the word of mouth moving.”
Garza remarks about how the film and entertainment community is continuously growing along the Emerald Coast – and how supporting current projects can make all the difference. “Most indie movies are true labors of love – we do this because we want to make a story that we believe is worth telling. And we hope you feel the same way about Melany Rose.”
