For a long time I've wanted
to make an independent horror/comedy film involving zombies. I've had a
few rough scripts lying around, one of which I really want to do. The
thing is, it's going to take money. No, not big Hollywood budget type
money, but still shooting for a decent chunk o' change. Now I'd love to be able to say that I'm raking
in the cash with this web site, but the fact is I'm not. Even with all the
traffic and exposure that it gets, it doesn't cover my rent or anything. Admittedly,
that's mainly because of my own refusal to put an insane amount of ads on
my site or go "the porn route". I've had offers to do so from various
companies, but I'd have to change the entire layout of I-Mockery just to
support all those annoying ads and that's
not something I want to do. Nor do I want to subject you people to a ton
of intrusive ads on every page of the site. I've always tried to keep the
advertising unobtrusive as possible so you can enjoy reading the content
here on I-Mockery. And I'm definitely not putting porn on
the site. There's enough of that shit on the web as it is, and I'd
rather people come to this site because they're looking for some humorous
pieces to laugh at... not some girl with a nice rack. So, I'm currently working a
full-time job just to cover my personal expenses.
leaves very little cash left over for me to put towards the horror/comedy
zombie flick I want to do. That being said, I've decided to set up this
fundraiser page. What I'm hoping for is that everybody who visits the site
will at least donate something each month. It can be $5.00, $10.00,
$20.00, $100.00, etc... it doesn't matter how much, just whatever you can spare at
the time. Once enough money has been raised, production on the film will
begin. Anybody who donates will be listed in the credits of
the film (either your real name or an alias of your choice). People
who donate an exceptional amount of money to the film will have the
opportunity to appear in it, possibly as one of the zombies. Who knows,
we'll figure that out when the time comes.
Fact is, I've been
busting my arse on this site for over 6 years now and a lot of people have
asked me if there was a way they could donate to I-Mockery for all of the
free entertainment that is on here. I've never liked the idea of putting
up a "donate to our site" thing, cuz I always prefer to give something
back in exchange for your hard-earned cash. That's why I sell
Stickers. But this film project is something far bigger and
selling bumper stickers just won't cut it. While time will tell whether or
not I'll be able to raise all the cash through this site, whatever money I do raise will
go toward a zombie flick. So all I can offer right now
for your donations is
a hearty thanks and your name in the film credits when production is
completed. Hopefully when it's all said 'n done, you'll get to watch a
really fun zombie flick and know that you helped it become a reality. If you happen to know an investor who would be interested in
financing the film, by all means have them get in touch with me. It'd
definitely save a lot of time and make our lives easier.
CLICK BELOW TO DONATE TO THE I-MOCKERY HORROR/COMEDY
In addition to the movie
donations that you can make, I will also be holding some benefit auctions
for the film. You'll be able to buy a large stuffed Domo-Kun, original
autographed copies of Visionary Darkness (when it was a print zine before
the site was even created), random toys, a zombie sculpture, and who knows
what else. The prices on those auctions will probably go higher than the
items are actually worth, but keep in mind that all the proceeds will be going
to the production of the horror/comedy zombie flick. And this will be like
no other zombie film you've ever seen, that I can promise you. Just take a
look around this chaotic site we call I-Mockery and imagine all of that
madness stuffed into a zombie film. Good times, good times...
CURRENT FUNDRAISER AUCTIONS:
Keep in mind, while the prices in these auctions might eventually go
higher than the items are worth, these auctions are to raise money for the
movie. So just think of it as a way for you to donate to our zombie movie
and still walk away with some cool goodies on the side!
AUCTIONS COMING SOON!
Ok, I guess that about
does it. A huge thanks to all of you who donate towards this each month... I
can't even begin to tell you just how much I appreciate it.
p.s.: I created an

other details that might be on your mind.
