Cheevies Film Productions - Indie Films

Thanks for visiting our film fundraiser page! Our current film that we are raising funds for is a feature length film called Torture The Flesh .

This is an ongoing fundraiser. Once we are able to complete the current film, future donations will be used to start production on the next project!

We love making films, we are passionate about this, and many of our supporters are so so generous. WE ARE SO GRATEFUL FOR ALL OF YOU!!! This is a place where our followers and people who are interested in our work can help produce our projects and share our Go Fund Me page to get the word out. 

Derek Braasch has been making independent films since 2002, and is the most passionate independent filmmaker you will ever meet! His bulldog tenacity is unmatched! He started Cheevies Film Productions right out of film school in 1999 and he hasn't stopped since. Derek loves to bring people together to create awesome projects. He loves mentoring young aspiring filmmakers and creating a fun and inclusive atmosphere on set.

Torture The Flesh will be our THIRD feature film as a company, in addition to several completed short films & music videos. This means you can be confident in knowing this project (and every other project) will be completed if fully funded. Cheevies has been around for a very long time, we have produced films with almost no budget, we have experience in what it takes to complete a project and we ALWAYS complete what we set out to do. You can rest assured that your donation will be going towards a quality project which will impress you as an indie film. 
We have an amazing and talented crew, many of whom always donate their time and put in grueling long hours to our projects so that we can focus the funds raised on making our films look and sound AMAZING. This next project is the most ambitious one to date for Cheevies. The gore effects are going to be INSANE. Our goal with each of our films is to continue to "level-up" and constantly grow as filmmakers. We know where the money will need to go in order to level-up this next Cheevies project, and we want you all to be a part of this!
Check out our amazing crew HERE !!  

Check out the teaser video below to see the quality you can expect from Cheevies for this project. Also check out our website to see our past projects which were mostly made on little to no budget at all.

Funds raised will go towards the cost of production including cinematography, grip, composing, editing, special FX makeup supplies, food to feed the cast/crew, promotional materials, film insurance, and post production costs such as festival submissions, conventions, DVD duplication, artwork & authoring.

Once the film is completed, we won't stop the promoting - It will merely be the beginning! We love making films. We hope this is our next project. We hope you're in and along for the ride with us!!
