Indie sci-fi/thriller “The Ghost Lights” launches on Indiegogo
Dallas-based production company launches Post-Production Fundraiser on Indiegogo
A journalist returns home after the death of her father and discovers a mysterious cassette tape describing strange disappearances and mysterious lights appearing in the skies of West Texas. In an effort to connect with the memory of her late father, she sets out on a cross-state road trip to discover the truth.
The Ghost Lights feature a stellar cast of Dallas-based talent, including Billy Blair as Mario, a miner from the ghost-town of Terlingua who witnesses strange lights appearing over the West Texas desert. Billy Blair has starred in a number of major motion pictures including Robert Rodriguez’s Machete films, Alita: Battle Angel, and Rob Zombie’s 3 From Hell.
In order to operate as safely as possible during the pandemic, The Ghost Lights was filmed in October of 2020 in only 10 days with a crew of 4-5 people, including cast. All cast and crew were tested before filming for Covid-19, and the crew isolated together for the duration of filming. The production cost was paid for out-of-pocket by director, Timothy Stevens. Now, the team seeks $15,000 to pay for post-production costs which include color correction, an original score, sound mixing, and special fx.
The film is based on the real-life phenomena of the Marfa Lights, strange inexplicable orbs of light that have appeared over the desert floor for more than 100 years. The Ghost Lights explores themes of loss and connection through the strange real-life legends of the Big Bend in West Texas.
Tim Stevens first discovered his love for cinema at a young age watching classic gothic horror films like The Cabinet of Dr. Calegari and Nosferatu. Tim continued his love of film by attending film school at the University of North Texas. Having graduated, Tim currently writes, directs, and produces film and television.
The Indiegogo will run for 30 days starting February 30th. Contributors will receive exclusive perks, including signed posters, actual props from the film, and even to a chance for a close-encounter with the real-life Ghost Lights.
