The Dead of Night- A psychological horror film that will make you dread the dead. Decisions are much bloodier and scarier in LA in the dead of night.

Our story centers around a couple getting married in 24 hours.  Our main characters have to make very tough, horrific and suffocating quick decisions between life and death within those 24 hours.  What they don't realize is that they are not the only ones about to walk into, "The Dead of Night."

Looking over your shoulder at night as you walk across the street has never been so real. Questioning your life's decision has never been more real and love has never been more clear.

Who we are-


Verse Films Productions is one of the first African-American female led horror production companies in Los Angeles.  We make psychological horror films based in reality with an added old school slasher flare. We try to make you aware of your surroundings in the real world as you may never know who or what may be lurking around.

Carshenah W. Jefferson- Director

Our project to date-
We are raising funds to start production in Los Angeles by June 7th. WE'VE EXTENDED OUR DATE!!

John Orphan- Cinematographer

Our goal-

First and foremost, to make a great story come alive.  We want to become masters of horror and make films that scare you into coming back for more.

Your funding will help us invest in our crew and the talent they bring from the top down. From our cinematographers and their equipment, to the caterer who will feed our crew to keep their strength up while shooting. We need capital to do so. We want to eliminate free work and give opportunities to talented people. Your investment will help give our production a voice.

What We Need-


RED Camera Equipment- $1,800
Steadicam-$400
Lighting and Truck Rental-$650
Location Fee-$350
Catering-$150
Props-$150

Total=$3,500 

Already backed by a private investor $1,000

Our goal is to raise the rest =$2,500

Honestly, a film is only great when it uses great resources and that means in front of the camera as well as behind the scenes. 

Deniss Rakovich- Lead Actor

How are we different?-
Verse Films Productions is independently driven and we want to keep that spirit of independence and shoot films the way we want to. Led by a strong female director and actress, Carshenah Jefferson has a vision to utilize more women and different ethnicities behind the scenes, bring to life different storylines for the masses and change the mind of Hollywood of what is important to you the audience and not the importance of the dollar.

Female directors in this horror genre are non-existent and if they do exist, we have no voice. Through Verse Films Productions, we are seeking investors to sow a seed into our first major project through this support platform and invest in the future of our films. 

We'll be submitting our completed film to some of the top film festivals around the globe. Help us reach out to the world.

Nana Makharashvili- Lead Actress

We want to thank you for your time in reading about us and what we want to do. Every seed sown is a big help and if we don't aim high, who else will? Work begets work and we want to work all the time. Help us complete this new project and be a part of our crew. Invest in our production company to make great films in the horror genre. The next project could be yours.
