Xibalba Movie Creator Joaquin Rodriguez Launches Kickstarter Campaign to Fund Production

Joaquin Rodriguez, the creator of the new science fiction/horror movie Xibalba, the first motion picture ever filmed on the actual locations where the Mayans lived 3,000 years ago, has launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise production funds. Based on the Popol Vuh sacred book, this movie blends mythology and a fascinating story line that will leave viewers enthralled.

Xibalba is a story that is steeped in Mayan mythology and blended with science fiction and horror.  The first movie ever to be filmed on the actual locations where Mayans lived in the ancient past and based on the Popol Vuh sacred book, Xibalba has already won the Golden Jaguar from the Yucatan Film Festival as a work in progress and has been invited to several other film festivals. This riveting story focuses on real Mayan mythological legends combined with modern storylines and filmmaking techniques.  Now, creator Joaquin Rodriguez has launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund production of the remainder of the movie.

Located at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/155048528/xibalba/, the Kickstarter campaign seeks funds for final production costs and finishing the filming of this epic tale.  Valuable donations can help the creator shoot key underwater scenes, create amazing music and finish exciting video effects.  “While most creators seek pre-production funds, this movie is already 95 percent finished,” notes Rodriguez.  “Literally we have overcome every obstacle and challenge, so we don’t see any risks at all in finishing the project. It’s already in progress and all we need are the funds to finish the project.”

The Kickstarter campaign offers pledge levels from $5 to $300 and prizes from a personalized thank-you to the opportunity to be listed as a co-producer in the film.  For more information on specific prizes associated with each pledge level, see the Kickstarter page.
