After creating the effects for over 40 iconic films, Schaffer Studios is now venturing to produce a motion picture of their own.
Schaffer Studios has spent decades creating the effects for such films as Iron Man 2, Speed, Daylight, Black Adam and Yellowstone. With so much experience under their belt, it is no wonder that producing a motion picture of their own was the next logical step. Their crew has done everything from visual effects and production design to storyboards and motion picture advertising. With such a talented and diverse staff, there is little doubt their next venture will be a success.
Two friends who went to High School together, Clark Schaffer and Aaron Keck, have spent decades together working on a variety of projects. They are now actively pursuing a new full length motion picture endeavor to take their film experience to the next level.
Their current project “The What!” is an homage film to the “giant monster” movies of the 50’s, told through the hardships, drama, and laughter of one farmer, his family, and their town. This film is also something quite unique. They have created an entirely new genre of film that will spark a flurry of excitement. With a production deadline looming they are anxious to start filming this summer. Screen tests will be held soon for actors.
They are currently running a Kickstarter campaign offering incredible prizes to those individuals offering pledges to fund the motion picture. Pledges can range from as little as $1 up to $10,000 with prizes being your name in the credit scroll at the end of the film to being an Executive Producer, depending on your pledge amount. With so many prizes in-between, it will be sure to attract a wide range of supporters.
