About the Production
The "Misirlou" process began in 2010 when the adrenal gland drug in "Fear in Loathing in Las Vegas" came to mind while showing a painting of masked savages attacking a victim. It took a full year for writer Trevor Simms to pen the script. Deciding not to wait, Trevor casted himself as the lead and began shooting with a DSLR. He ut together a small teaser and met a $5,000 Kickstarter goal. With every credit line he could take out he started shooting the script.
Scheduling with no budget made the large cast of actors difficult to schedule. The live Los Angeles locations were challenging to shoot in.
Production used all their get out of jail free cards. All of the stunts were performed on live LA city streets. Two motorcycles were crashed during filming. The crew went through three cameras.

During the 30 day campaign a new episode will air every two days. Each episode will be lightly censored from nudity and gore. To see the film in its entirely uncensored theatrical version viewers are encouraged to visit and enter their information at http://www.misirloumovie.com.com/
