Even though Bad Cookie Pictures is a relatively new production company, they’ve already made some fantastic horror shorts, including Ready to Burst and Paint the Town Red, both of which we’ve reviewed here and here. They were also involved in The Man in the Rabbit Mask, which we also reviewed. Ariel Hansen and Christopher “Topher” Graham, the people behind Bad Cookie Productions, are now working on a brand new project called The Bad Cookie Combo – double your pleasure, double the shorts!
To make these two shorts – one directed by Ariel (Nepenthes) and one directed by Topher (The Devil and I) – the filmmakers need a little help from you guys. In return, you’ll get some pretty cool stuff, including posters, digital downloads of the finished shorts, t-shirts and even producer credits. Plus you know the final product is going to be awesome. Check out the pitch video below. These guys have way too much fun creating horror to make something that’s subpar or unoriginal.
The Indiegogo campaign for the Bad Cookie Combo began on July 7th. They hope to raise $5000 and are calling to the local community (and beyond) for help. Both films feature familiar faces from the local industry, including Jesse Inocalla, James Kingstone and Ariel Slack. With a strong focus on supporting local artists and female filmmakers, Hansen and Graham believe that collaboration is key to success in the independent film industry.
“Making films can be challenging with limited funds, but when you find the right people and build strong relationships, the whole process becomes easier,” notes Ariel Hansen.
Hansen and Graham have many connections to the local industry, particularly in the horror world. Often
collaborating with the teams from Luchagore Productions and Off World Pictures, they have now partnered with Hammer and Tong to create virtual reality horror experiences as well as short segments and promotional videos for the Vancouver Badass Film Festival in early 2018. They will be shooting The Bad Cookie Combo in August and September, shortly after their Indiegogo campaign, and plan to submit the films to festivals around the world, where they have already found much success with other projects.
