I love all girl rock bands. I love puppets. I love horror. Exactly the reasons why each and every one of you should head on over to the crowdfunding page for “Dead Air” and throw some money at these guys!!!
Dead Air is a puppet infused comedy horror short film that strives to create a fun ride with its own unique look and feel. We love practical fx, so as much as possible will be done in camera to give our film that hand crafted feel. Using Henson influenced hand and rod puppets to bring our gremlins to life, everything, from our plane to full sized creatures will be created by use of miniatures and live effects respectively as opposed to doing the work digitally in post production.
Set on a plane travelling to a final gig, Dead Air tells the story of Monster Kitten, an all female punk rock band who end up on a flight with some nasty little creatures who like to bite and infect their victims to the point of all hell breaking loose at 30,000 feet. With the help of their instruments, a tape recorder, a dodgy crew member and a bottle of piss, the girls try to fend off the evil to get to play their final gig.
