Here is a short video regarding this project

The company set out to raise $6,000 on Indiegogo to help cover production costs such as payment for cast and crew, craft services, production insurance, applicable permits, music licensing and post-production costs like film festival submission fees.

The company’s last project, 2019’s award-winning short film Murder Creek, was an official selection of the Olympus, Buffalo Dreams, and New York Long Island (NYLIFF) film festivals, and won Best Horror Short, Best Actress, and Best Screenplay at NTLIFF. Kristen Skeet received the Filmmaker to Watch Dreamer Award at the Buffalo Dreams Fantastic Film Festival.

This campaign marks the official release of Murder Creek on DVD.

There are many exciting Knock items to choose from too, including a special thank you in the credits of the film, a digital download of the film, and a script signed by the cast and crew. Become an Associate or Executive Producer of the film and be credited as such in the credits of the film. Other perks include becoming part of the crew as a production assistant for a full day of shooting, and there is even one chance to snag an exclusive night out with the filmmakers, including Writer and Director Kristen Skeet, Cinematographer Ty Cheman, and Producers Sherry McCutcheon and Anita Harmon who are coming in from Atlanta and St. Louis for the shoot, respectively.

Director Kristen Skeet invites you to become part of their team bringing Knock to life: “We are so thankful for the incredible support we received from this community during and after the making of Murder Creek. There is that old adage that it takes a village to raise a child and the same can be said for producing a film. Especially an independent film. Knowing there are people out there who support us and who are excited to see what we’re doing gives us much-needed energy and confidence boosts. We do this because we love making films, but it sure is great when people show up and want to be involved in what we’re doing!

The majority of Murder Creek’s production team is returning for Knock, including:

  • Kristen Skeet, Director
  • Sherry McCutcheon, Producer
  • Anita Harmon, Producer
  • Ty Cheman, Cinematographer
  • Adam Bloch, Sound Production
  • Molly Farber, Script Supervisor

Returning from the cast of Murder Creek is the incredibly talented actor, Akron native, Kevin Gay. Kevin turned in an outstanding performance and William Montgomery in Murder Creek, and returns to us to portray Knock’s lead male character, Jack.
