I think, like most people, Silent Hill two had a pretty tremendous impact on me when that came out. I think that was one of the first (and few) times I really sat through and played a game from beginning to end without really taking a break (except for the stuff nature designed us to do)… I think it’s commonplace for people to say 2, and anyone can see why, but I think I actually like 3 more when I think about it. I also really like what they did with Shattered Memories. I fucking love the ending to that game. Such a punch to the guts.
First I would find people that wanted to make it and I would be certain that they were not copying from what has been done. A new Silent Hill would require some truly sick, dark people behind it. It is time to throw out the Silent Hill mold and try to ask ourselves again what it means to be scared. It requires a lot of inward looking. It isn’t just about making slimy, squirmy things on screen. Fear is inside us and we have to look at it closely before we can make other people feel it.

My Interview With Gareth Morgan of Zenith Films, the Mastermind Behind the Silent Hill Fan Film “Requiem”
Good morning Gareth, I appreciate you taking the time to answer some questions for my site about your upcoming Silent Hill project titled Requiem. Lets start with who you are and your passion for filming, what or who inspired you as a film maker and how Zenith Films came to be.
Where does Requiem fit within the Silent Hill timeline? Can you share anything about the film’s plot, themes, length or possible release date window?

Silent Haven has contributed to a fellow Silent Hill fan who has a great passionate and ambitious project on kick-starter to directing a independent Silent Hill 2 film! You should too, even if its $1 dollar!
My name is Brett Driver. I am an Independent filmmaker that has been making films and shorts on the “low budget” scale for a little over 12 years. You can view more of my work here! www.youtube.com/brettsk8
‘LOST DAYS' is based of the hit video game Silent Hill 2. Ultimately, the story is about love and loss. I feel that it is very important for me to tell this particular story because it represents, and affects a vast majority of people that fall into their own darkness, and do battle with their own personal demons. Plus, I just feel really passionate about the subject matter. I feel as a Director it’s very important to tell a story that pulls at your heart strings and makes you feel something by the ending credits. (That’s my main mission with this project!)
I have been working on the script for more than a year, and written multiple drafts to insure perfection in my own eyes.
By donating you will be helping us make a film that myself, my crew, and actors are EXTREMELY passionate about! PLUS you get to be apart of the whole experience! What’s more exciting, and awesome than that?!
The CastSearching for the PERFECT cast is an absolute MUST on bringing an adaptation, or any film to life. You have to find Actors that are committed to the project, and are willing to bring your vision to life in every aspect. Even if it means going to really dark places.Starlin Britt James Sunderland

What We Need & What You Get
For this project I have calculated, and predicted that we will need around $3,000 to make this thing a reality!
Also, by donating you will recieve some cool perk awards, so don’t think you’ll be going away COMPLETELY empty handed!
I can assure you that every cent goes into the production of 'LOST DAYS'
Not ONLY do you get to be apart of the creation of this film, but you also help out with all of the on set needs!
here’s the breakdown of where your money goes!
- Actors (These guys are important to selling the dark character roles.)
- Props (This includes Set Dressing, and vital items to sell a scene.)
- Lodging (Hotels for Cast and Crew)
- Transportation (Gas to get to and from set)
- Catering (Snacks, Food, Water)
- Wardrobe (Costumes for the actors)
- Makeup (FX makeup that sells a certain look.)
Your contributions will make such a huge difference to the look and style of the film, with the budget we are able to have a fantastic cast, awesome locations, and great help on set. I am SO used to working with little to no budget, and doing absolutely EVERYTHING myself on set. Your help is really giving me a new opportunity, and experience!
You don’t HAVE to donate to help!
I understand not everyone will be able to donate to this project, if it’s still something that sparks an interest in you, share it on social media pages like Facebook and Twitter. Just getting the word out there is payment enough!
Thank YOU so much!

Dear Silent Hill fans, thank you very much for your patronage . We Gecco Corp., Terminated the distributionship agreement with Toymunkey Studios Inc. in the end of October. Although we had requested Toymunkey to improve business operations for a while, they still dont seem to respond in a sincere manner and cause our Silent Hill fans so much trouble. Even though we broke up the partnership with them, we’ll keep asking Toymunkey to improve the operations. In Japanese market, we plan to release ‘Heather’ in the end of this yar and ‘Robbie’ in February 2014. As for any other area other than Japan, we are negotiating with several distributors, and the release will be later than Japanese portion. However, we promise that we’ll bring those statues to you. We really appreciate your patience and continued support.
