Practical FX Creature Feature Harbinger Down Surpasses Funding Goal

Alec Gillis and Tom Woodruff – those FX gurus from ADI – embarked on an effort to Kickstart a practical FX-fueled creature feature called Harbinger Down, starring Lance Henriksen, last month.  We spoke to Gillis about the project here as word began to get around Hollywood that it was seeking financing.

Well, there’s good news for the team.  They have met and surpassed their financing goal.  Harbinger Down was looking for $350k and, at the time of this writing, it has gathered an estimated $367k.

As Gillis wrote via the Kickstarter page, “Now the journey begins…”

“Tom and I want to thank all of you for contributing your hard earned money to this crazy cause. In these tough times it’s especially significant that you gave so much. It underscores how important this mission is. We intend to uphold our part of the bargain with as much passion and zeal as you’ve shown in supporting this effort.Monsters are important. They’ve been with humankind since we became human. We’re going to do everything we can to keep them with us, and most importantly, to keep them real.”

Here’s a look at the poster, too!
