After Jerry Smith’s dark and beautiful short film LOVE IS DEAD fell just short of reaching its fundraising goal on Kickstarter, it seemed that horror fans might be deprived of this very personal and very powerful story of love lost and the struggle to combat one’s own darkest demons. Fortunately, Smith isn’t giving up this easy. He knows he has a story that needs to be told, but he still needs your support to help bring this incredible vision to life.

The Love is Dead campaign has found new life on IndiegogoOriginally budgeted at twice the amount, Smith and Shildwachter (DP) were able to work their collective asses off to cut the budget in half, while still providing a professional and entertaining environment and a story that will stick with you.

As we previously told you, Jerry has enlisted the help of some amazing talent to bring his moving vision to the screen, including indie horror darling Tristan Risk (American Mary) and adult film sensation Aaron ‘Small Hands’ Thompson, as well as accomplished veteran actor Ruben Pla (Insidious). He’s also assembled some stellar talent behind the camera, including Zach Shildwachter (I Sell the Dead, Margaret) and BJ Colangelo (Abort, Seven Minutes). Everyone attached to the film is just as passionate and Jerry and just as committed to seeing this film get made.
