Andy Copp is a friend of Schlockmania and a long­time direc­tor of under­ground hor­ror fare who is seek­ing to get his lat­est opus off the ground.  The bad news is he’s short on funds and has put out a call for fund­ing help on his site.  The good news is you can con­tribute with­out break­ing your pig­gy bank in two because con­tri­bu­tion options range from $10 to $100.  Anyone who donates will get a spe­cial onscreen cred­it and those who con­tribute $25 or over will get a spe­cial gift from Copp Films.  Read on for the full details from Mr. Copp him­self:


The lat­est pro­duc­tion from Andrew Copp is CHURCH OF THE EYES an exper­i­men­tal, rock and roll, hor­ror, return to his roots ala THE MUTILATION MAN and BLACK SUN. Written by Andrew Copp and Kevin Jones with some addi­tion­al mate­ri­al by Nick Williams the movie is a trip into the heart of spir­i­tu­al decay and mad­ness as one man con­fronts mor­tal­i­ty. A young man expe­ri­ences deep loss as his girl­friend dies in a car crash, as he falls deep­er into depres­sion and sor­row, he decides the only way out it is to sim­ply find God and kill him in retal­i­a­tion for tak­ing away all that he has loved. The project was con­ceived by musi­cian Keven Jones as a vehi­cle for his music imprint SWINEBURNER and has devel­oped into a beast all its own.

While the movie is set to start shoot­ing the end of April 2010 we are still nowhere near were we need to be funds wise. Due to the econ­o­my two thirds of the saved mon­ey that was going towards the bud­get was lost (thanks lost jobs and GM faulty cars!) and we are sim­ply not will­ing to for­go shoot­ing anoth­er year, as we have post­poned that long already. We need to raise a sub­stan­tial amount to do this right. We can get start­ed on what we have and make an okay movie. But if we can raise some decent mon­ey we can make the movie we NEED to make.

This is where you THE FANS come in. We are ask­ing for your help. Coppfilms has always been pret­ty qui­et when it comes to this sort of thing, but we are ask­ing this time. We are ask­ing for the fans to donate some mon­ey towards this pro­duc­tion to get it going prop­er­ly. There will be a pay­pal but­ton below at which you can donate how­ev­er much you can give.

Anyone who donates will receive cred­it in the film in a spe­cial pro­duc­er line. And any­one who gives more than $25.00 will get a spe­cial free gift from Coppfilms. Be sure when you donate to include your name and infor­ma­tion so we can prop­er­ly cred­it you in the end cred­its of the final film.

We need all the help you can give and we need it fast to make this work. So please help us out. We’ve been in mak­ing under­ground movies since the mid 90’s and want to con­tin­ue. But we need the fans sup­port.

Thank you

Andy Copp
