A Craving in L.A.

In Development

A Vampire Story like no other!

A love triangle w/ a "female Dracula"...

Vagabond vampires... Gritty Los Angeles setting...

Young familiar cast... Thrills... Romance... Scares... 


Crimson Wing Films is a successful film production company seeking to fund a portion of its next feature-length film A Craving In L.A., a vampire horror story based off a well-reviewed, top shelf script. 


The total budget for the entire production (including pre- and post- work) is $2.5 Million. Once this film has at least 60% in collateral (via equity financing and crowdfunding via indiegogo),  the rest of the film will secure financing through foreign and domestic pre-sales, subsidies and other methods using our relationships with other companies and distributors.


Unlike a big movie studio, we believe in

transparency with your money!


What do we mean? All funds will be put into an escrow fund until we are ready to begin pre-production. Once money is taken from this fund for the production, you will be notified!


The film will be produced on budget and on schedule as assured by a completion bond. Bottom line, unlike a big studio, you'll know where your money is going! Contact us for the business plan, script, budget, etc.
