Founder, CEO, Managing Director and Creative Director

Writer. Director. Actor. Musician. Drummer (wait for it…). Model. Artist. Canvas. Columnist. Proudest Papa EVER. And as Creative Director of the straight jacket-tested/doctor-approved Mad Ones Films, from Greensboro North Carolina, Jaysen Buterin’s mission has been to show the unbridled kaleidoscopic creativity just waiting to be unleashed when the inmates are finally allowed to run the movie-making asylum. More comfortable behind the camera as the writer/director of award-winning film fare such as the Tarantino-meets-Twilight Zone trilogy, “The Gospel According to Booze, Bullets & Hot Pink Jesus,” the on-the-road killer thriller, “Between Hell and a Hard Place,” or the sinister stay-at-home horror hits of “Don’t Let the Light In” and “The Corner,” he also takes turns in front of the camera, acting in such frightful and delightful films as “Knob Goblins,” “Loop,” “Born Again,” “Mama’s Boy” and “Identity Thieves”. He’s currently hard at work on fundraising for his very first feature-length film, the coulrophobia-courting/clown killing goodness of “KILL GIGGLES”!!!

Top 10 Highly Anticipated Indie Horror Movies of 2018: Part 2

A nice little write-up on PopHorror.com about their most anticipated independent horror films coming out in 2018. Our proof-of-concept short, Killing Giggles, was honoured with a spot on this brilliant list!

Dear Kill Giggles: We're Ready to Die Now. Love, The Clowns


Greetings and salutations dear movie maniacs, film fanatics and faithful (AND VERY VERY VERY PATIENT) StartEngine investors! It's been far too long since we have checked in with you, and first thing's first: no, we still don't have a release date for Kill Giggles. But oh dear gods, do I assure you that it HAS TO BE any damn day now!!! We have been thru "deliverables hell" for the last 15 months, going back and forth between the realms of legal and digital damnation with enough forms and files to fill a bottomless pit thrice over. It's the part they never tell you about in the "How to Get Your Film Distributed" books, or at least I don't think they do... honestly, I've never had time to read those books because we've been too busy trying to get thru deliverables.

HOWEVER, the latest flaming hoops we have successfully jumped thru are getting smaller and smaller, and we are assured that we are on the verge of being able to announce everything: who's distributing the film, how it's getting released, when, and so on and so on. We know it seems like it's been forever, trust us, we feel that way too. But when all is finally revealed, hopefully you will understand the magnitude of what we've been able to make happen—for us, for North Carolina filmmaking, for all indie horror filmmakers, for haters of clowns everywhere. In the meantime, please sneak a peek at our latest Investor Video Update below, which has a brief look back at the timeline of just how long we've been waiting to show you KILL GIGGLES!!!

As an extra special thanks, and just to see if anyone is still reading, we have a wee bit of a treat for you! Over Memorial Day Weekend this year, we were lucky enough to be a part of Carolina Fear Fest in Raleigh, NC, which meant screening at the always-amazing Alamo Drafthouse there. Not only did we get to have the RALEIGH PREMIERE of Kill Giggles, but we also had the WORLD PREMIERE of "Inside the Circus Tent: The Making of Kill Giggles"!!! After this wicked double feature, they let us do a Q&A with the attending cast and crew, and it was just a whole lotta fun!

Michael Ray Williams (Tommy dos Santos), Vernon Wells (Malcolm "Giggles" Fossor), Felissa Rose (Dr. Courtney Lee), Shane Terry (Kinky Dinky), Tracey de Leon (Aunt Angela), and Joey Rudzinski (Joey Z), as well as moderator Bill Mulligan (Uncle Kookie) were all on hand to take part in the shenanigans. You are the first ones outside of those who attended, who get to see what transpired after the credits stopped rolling, and I ended up with a microphone in my hand.

https://vimeo.com/586901005
https://vimeo.com/586904011

The password for both videos is: "giggles"

We have to believe that there is, indeed, a light at the end of the tunnel (although our writer/director suspects that it's really just the headlights of a clown car hellbent on seeking revenge), so please Please PLEASE be patient with us just a little longer, and stay tuned for some sort of update VERY SOON on just WHEN you can expect to have a copy of this award-winning one-of-a-kind clown-killer thriller in your hands and on your screens!!!

Sincerely,
Jaysen P. Buterin,
Writer/Director, Kill Giggles

There's Just One Day Left to Become A Part of Horror Movie History with Kill Giggles!!!

So we've got somewhere between 24 and 36 hours left on our campaign, let the clown-killing countdown BEGIN!!! And we couldn't begin the final countdown without revealing THREE important bits of news: the FIRST is that with today's investments, coupled with other funds, we have PASSED THE $20,000 MARK, our second benchmark goal!!! But not being the kind of crew to rest on our laurels, we still want to make use of every available second that we have left!


Now please, make no mistakes about it, this movie is going to get made. This film is going to be available worldwide in a variety of formats. This movie will screen at film festivals around the world. This story is an original independent idea in a stagnating sea of remakes, reboots and recycled franchises. This idea is something that has never been done before... EVER. And that's just a wildly refreshing thing to say, because all of this is true. We believe that Kill Giggles is going to be something truly spectacular, and the first step in a long and prolific career in filmmaking. We hope that you will consider investing in this, in us, in Giggles.

This Friday, February 8th, will be our very last OFFICIAL Facebook Live Video Q&A on the Kill Giggles Facebook Page before the campaign ends!!  So join me online as I will be talking about all things Kill Giggles. Rather than read off pre-asked questions, I’ll be doing this interactive Q&A through Facebook Live Video on Friday, February 8th at 3pm(EST).


I’ll be discussing various details of pre-production, maybe even make a couple of announcements (possibly one more celebrity cameo), and anything else that may pop up that you want to chat about. I would love to be able to connect with all our investors and followers, and if we can make some new friends to the page and the campaign as well, then all the better!! It's more fun if the Q&A is a completely interactive-driven experience, so please be sure to stop by the Kill Giggles Facebook Page and let me know what's on your mind!

During the event itself, please feel free ask any questions or comments through the Facebook Live Chat window and I’ll do my best to answer it in real time "live on the air." (we're old, kids... ask your parents). Got a question about the production, or want to know why we decided to use this method of fundraising, where the campaign itself currently stands, dying to know just how many clowns die in the movie?!? We’ll leave that up to you… so join us and let’s talk Kill Giggles while we send in the clowns to die… with FB Live!


And last, but most certainly not least, while the digital ink is still drying, we can confirm one last celebrity guest joining us on the cast of Kill Giggles! We are excited and delighted to announce that Vernon Wells (Commando, The Road Warrior, Weird Science, Power Rangers) has signed on and will be playing the role of Malcolm Fossor, the once great clown king of Marseilles County, and estranged father of the female love interest of our serial killer!!!

With Vernon joining the production it adds just another level of professionalism and cinematic "street cred" to what is shaping up to be a one-of-a-kind star-studded feature film! (Not to mention, it's a literal director's dream come true for a child of the 80s who grew up watching films with every single person featured below!) While our stars, Michael Ray Williams and Jaclyn Helms Barber, will most certainly steal the show, to be able to have such a fantastic caliber of acting talent WANT to be a part of this story has to be a sign of something wickedly original to come this way. From left to right, our celebrity guest stars now include: Felissa Rose, Judith O'Dea, Andre Gower, Ryan Lambert and Vernon Wells! So don't miss your chance to be a part of this spectacular production—invest today!!!

There's Just SEVEN DAYS Left to Send in the Clowns to Die!!!

First off, and foremost, we must apologise for the delinquency of our updates, but we really do have the best excuse = PRE-PRODUCTION!!! We've been scouting locations in and around the Piedmont Triad area of NC and things are already looking absolutely amazing for the background visuals of Kill Giggles. While we can't go into any of the devilish details yet, we're already looking forward to filming in Mocksville, Asheboro, Eden, Kernersville and Greensboro... and that's just to name a few. We are extremely grateful for Beth Compton, our amazing location scout/manager, as well as Rebecca Clark (director of the Piedmont Triad Film Commission) for helping us find all of the absolutely amazing locations we need for this film that are scattered all over this gorgeous state of North Carolina!

We have made some amazing progress over the last two weeks and we're inching ever closer to breaking the $15,000 mark! That being said, we're setting another personal goal for ourselves—while we might not make it to $107,000 (and that's okay)—we are going to try our clown-killing damnedest to break $20,000!! So if there are any  questions, comments or concerns that you've been holding on to, please just let us know. Not only is Kill Giggles an original idea in an era of remakes and reboots, but it's going to be shot ENTIRELY over two blocks of filming, and 21 days, this summer! After that, it's immediately into post-production and after that... WORLD PREMIERE TIME!!!

While it's far too early to tell just where you'll be able to see Kill Giggles first, we can assure you that we are doing everything within our power to ensure that it will be available worldwide, and in as many different formats as possible. Our partners over at Cubic7 are busy making magic happen and we look forward to being able to have some pretty big distribution news to share with you soon.

And last but certainly not least, next Friday will be our very last OFFICIAL Facebook Live Video Q&A on the Kill Giggles Facebook Page before the campaign ends!!  So join me online as I will be talking about all things Kill Giggles. Rather than read off pre-asked questions, I’ll be doing this interactive Q&A through Facebook Live Video on Friday, February 8th at 3pm(EST).


I’ll be discussing various details of pre-production, maybe even make a couple of announcements (possibly one more celebrity cameo), and anything else that may pop up that you want to chat about. I would love to be able to connect with all our investors and followers, and if we can make some new friends to the page and the campaign as well, then all the better!! It's more fun if the Q&A is a completely interactive-driven experience, so please be sure to stop by the Kill Giggles Facebook Page and let me know what's on your mind!

Kill Giggles on IMDB: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt8998598/
In addition to all the excitement surrounding our last week's progress, we want to remind everyone to keep an eye on the Kill Giggles IMDB page! We'll be adding more cast and crew to the page in the coming days, as well as everyone who already has, or chooses to invest at, any of the Producer Perk levels offered.

Lights... Camera... Come Be a Part of the Action!!!

With just over three weeks left in the campaign we are excited and delighted to welcome aboard several new investors, hopefully a whole bunch of new followers and friends, and even some new cast and crew members to the Kill Giggles Experience!!! We apologise for the delinquency in delivering updates but we've extremely busy since PRE-PRODUCTION OFFICIALLY STARTED THIS WEEK!!

We are very excited to be working with Beth Compton, an excellent location scout/manager we've worked with before, as well as Rebecca Clark (director of the Piedmont Triad Film Commission) to find all of the absolutely amazing locations that we need for this film that are scattered all over this gorgeous state of North Carolina! The first block of filming will begin in mid-June so stay tuned for more pre-production updates as well as some final cast and crew announcements!!!

Kill Giggles is going to be an amazing film AND filmmaking experience. It's a story that has NEVER been told before, and that is a rare—if not downright impossible—feat in this day and age in ANY genre, let alone the exciting delighting cinematic cocktail that is thriller and horror!!! We've shown you lists of films and television shows that have done the same exact thing time and time and time again... over and over and over, with the serial killers/monsters/maniacs always dressing up like clowns to spread their murderous mayhem.

And then there's us over here at Mad Ones Films, and we want to do something COMPLETELY DIFFERENT, and we want YOU to join us!! If you've ever wanted to be a part of movie magic but just didn't know how, NOW is the time!!! We've got 22 days left, we've got one hell of an original idea, and we've got a quickly growing group of talented people who are going to ensure that this independent thriller/horror film from North Carolina is seen and screened around the world!!! But don't just take our word for it, read the article below!!!

"LIGHTS, CAMERA... NOW YOU'RE IN ON THE ACTION!!!"

"Jaysen Buterin is that rare indie filmmaker carving a niche for himself (a bloody, serrated wound of a niche) by producing genuinely creepy horror flicks that routinely rack up awards at film festivals around the country and overseas."

CUBIC7 to Help Mad Ones Films Send in the Clowns… to Die!!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
JANUARY 1, 2019 

Contact: Jaysen Buterin
Tel: 336.509.4845
Email: jaysen@madonesfilms.com
Web: http://www.madonesfilms.com 


Greensboro, NC – Mad Ones Films are pleased to have Cubic7 come on board as producers and consultants to assist with funding/financing, marketing, B2B and distribution/sales for Kill Giggles. Cubic7’s aim is to make good returns for investors in Kill Giggles while assisting us in our goal of reaching a worldwide audience with a thrilling chilling twist on a timeless terror. Cubic7 are already opening up conversations with contacts and companies to organise distribution for this project whilst the film is still in pre-production. 

“Though we can’t announce any specifics yet, we can confirm that we have begun conversations with companies where we hope to achieve a mix of DVD and VOD distribution for European territories and have also began to explore our North American, Canadian and UK Distribution which we hope to advance over the coming months,” said Callum Dougherty, co-Managing Director of Cubic7. 

In real world terms this will ensure that the project can work to a higher budget whilst still being commercially viable and profitable for existing and future investors. Cubic7 are a UK company who specialise in producing for film, TV and major commercial theatre. Cubic7 focuses on innovative financial, distribution and marketing methods—making them well placed to support new micro budget film and TV productions such as Kill Giggles

“We have found working with micro budget horror to be some of our most enjoyable and rewarding projects as a company where we can explore unique ideas and methods to reach audiences. We think Kill Giggles has real originality and flair. We are excited because Kill Giggles could be a real cult hit,” said Alan Kay, Managing Director of Cubic7.

Spread the Holiday by Keeping Clowns in Fear - Invest in a Horror Film Today!!!

As you've noticed we extended our campaign last week in order to allow us more time to raise a more desirable level of funds to bring the movie magic of Kill Giggles to life. With another 60 days under our rainbow scarf belts, we are confident that we will soon be able to reach new investors and followers needed to take both the film and the fundraising campaign to the next level.



Allow us to reiterate what we consider to be something pretty astounding. At the moment there are somewhere around 150 remakes that are currently either in development or in pre-production, and that's just in the realms of horror and sci-fi. Just within the sub-section of horror, there have been over 20 films and shows made just over the last few years alone, that have all made clowns the serial-killing monsters and murderers of our nightmares. Almost two dozen movies that have done the same thing over and over and over again.

And then there’s us over here. Hi again, we’re Kill Giggles, and we’re going to take that timeless terror trope and turn it on its rainbow-wig covered head by telling a tale of a serial killer OF clowns instead! That's right, an original idea. Not a remake, not a reboot, not a "re-imagining" but rather something completely different... something, new. And that's damn-near impossible to say in any genre of the film community, let alone that or horror and thriller.

And finally, we are absolutely thrilled to have had a write-up about Kill Giggles featured on iHorror.comone of the industry standard news sites for ALL things horror!! Waylon Jordan did a great write-up of the film's pre-production and our fundraising efforts thus far. Please take a peek at "Mad Ones Films is Offering YOU the Chance to Help ‘Kill Giggles" for the whole article. We are sincerely and cinematically grateful to iHorror.com for the exposure. With clown-killing fingers crossed there will be more press coming soon on both the film and the StartEngine campaign, so be sure to stay tuned to the websites and social media, and let's send in those clowns to die!!

Give the Gift That Keeps on Giving—Help Produce Horror Movie Magic!

With just ten days left in the campaign we're kicking the promotional machine into overdrive and keeping our eyes on that movie-making clown-killing prize!! We'll be rolling out some new social media advertising early next week to put Kill Giggles in front of as many eyes as possible! We would like to sincerely thank each and every one of our investors and followers who have invested their funds and their faith in this project - we promise you that you will NOT be disappointed!

We have made some amazing progress these last couple of weeks and have the utmost of confidence that we will continue to do so in the days ahead. If anyone has any questions about the project, or the campaign, please do not hesitate to ask!! We will be doing one more Facebook Live Video Q&A Session next week from our Los Angeles location, so stay tuned for the date/time reveal as soon as possible!!

Since we know that so much of the moving and shaking going on in the investing world revolves around numbers we wanted to give you a little something to think about. At the moment there are somewhere around 150 remakes that are currently either in development or in pre-production, and that's just in the realms of horror and sci-fi. Just within the sub-section of horror, there have been over 20 films and shows made just over the last few years alone, that have all made clowns the serial-killing monsters and murderers of our nightmares. Almost two dozen movies that have done the same thing over and over and over again.

Not a remake, not a reboot, not a "re-imagining" but rather something completely different... something, new. And that's damn-near impossible to say in any genre of the film community, let alone that or horror and thriller.

But don't just take OUR word for it... iconic horror actress/producer/scream queen Felissa Rose Esposito Miller (SLEEPAWAY CAMP, UGLY SWEATER PARTY; FAMILY POSSESSIONS; DEATH HOUSE) is a part of our cast and has recorded a special message JUST for you!! 


We are also excited and delighted to have been featured on PopHorror.com, who did an absolutely brilliant write-up of the film's pre-production and fundraising efforts. Please take a peek at "Inside The Clown Tent: Everything You Need To Know About ‘Kill Giggles’" for the whole article. We're very grateful to everyone at PopHorror.com for the exposure. There will be several more articles coming out on both the film and the StartEngine campaign over the next few weeks so be sure to stay tuned to the websites and social media!!

Nothing Says Happy Holidays Like Horror Movies!!!

While we might not be exactly where we want to at this point in the campaign, we are delighted and grateful to be right where we are, having passed our first benchmark goal and with some thrilling new prospects lurking on the immediate horizon. We have been asked to come out to LA for a few investor interest meetings which will hopefully yield some exciting results. And maybe, just maybe, the giving mood of the holidays will strike just when we need it most, because if mind-blowing jaw-dropping one-of-a-kind independent horror isn't the gift that keeps on giving, well... then we just don't know what is...

However, we know that we may not have all the answers figured out yet that would make some potential investors feel more secure about their investment in the film, and we understand that. But what we may lack in experience at this point, we already more than make up for with commitment, passion and creativity. This is not a movie that will be made to simply sit on a shelf somewhere and be a conversation item. This film will screen at internationally renowned film festivals all over the world. This film will see a theatrical release of some sort (even if it involves the director driving around from Alamo Drafthouse to Drafthouse with a DCP). This film will have physical distribution, streaming options and every single outlet of entertainment available. We want the world to know that it's time for the clowns to be the victims, and we want your help in doing just that. Because while all that world may love a clown... no one said it had to be alive.

If you missed our second Live Video Q&A session, we have posted it below for your viewing pleasure! Once again we had a really good turnout of online questions coming from fans, friends and followers alike. So by all means, if there is anything that you really want to know about this project, or the people involved with it, please sneak a peek at the video below! Featuring myself and producer/Cinematographer Jesse H. Knight, don't let the 64-minute runtime scare you!  If there is anything you want to know about Kill Giggles, or the campaign, that wasn't brought up in this video please let us know and we'll address it as soon as possible.


We'll be doing another Live Video Q&A session coming up VERY SOON, and while the guests are not confirmed for Q&A #3, we hope to hear from as many of our investors, followers, friends and fans as we can. We have several important things to discuss, such as the above new celebrity cast member addition, as well as distribution outlets that we're currently pursuing. So stay tuned for those broadcast details and please help us help you to send in the clowns to die!!! - Jaysen

First Benchmark Down... Time to Send in the Clowns!!!

In case you hadn't heard, or was distracted looking at another campaign page...

That's right, thanks to some movie maniacs and film fanatics out there and a new Associate Producer, we have passed $10,000... our first benchmark goal, which puts us in the exciting and delighting stage of starting to secure the shooting dates for principal photography for the film! We already know that we're looking at a 21-day shoot, and since we have a complete strip board break down of the project, this will allow us to begin blocking specific chunks of time and coordinating with the already assembled cast and crew!

We also wanted to let any interested investors know that we are OFFICIALLY ACCEPTING BitCoin investments now!

We will be traveling to Los Angeles at the beginning of December for a series of investor interest meetings, if there are any followers in that area who have an interest in meeting? We would be happy to answer any questions you might have... and speaking of questions...

And last but certainly not least, tomorrow (Saturday, November 10th) will be our second OFFICIAL Facebook Live Video Q&A on the Kill Giggles Facebook Page!!  We will be talking about all things Kill Giggleswith writer/director Jaysen Buterin, as well as one of the producers and award-winning Director of Photography of the film, Jesse H. Knight. Rather than read off pre-asked questions we’ll be doing this as an interactive "question & answer" session through Facebook Live on Saturday, November 10th at 2pm(EST).

We’ll be discussing various details of pre-production, maybe even make an important casting addition announcement (if we're allowed to), and of course, anything else that may pop up that you want to chat about.

With Regulation A+, a non-accredited investor can only invest a maximum of 10% of their annual income or 10% of their net worth per year, whichever is greater. There are no restrictions for accredited investors.

With Regulation Crowdfunding, non-accredited investors with an annual income or net worth less than $124,000, are limited to invest a maximum of 5% of the greater of those two amounts. For those with an annual income and net worth greater than $124,000, he/she is limited to investing 10% of the greater of the two amounts.

At the close of an offering, all investors whose funds have “cleared” by this time will be included in the disbursement. At this time, each investor will receive an email from StartEngine with their Countersigned Subscription Agreement, which will serve as their proof of purchase moving forward.

Please keep in mind that a company can conduct a series of “closes” or withdrawals of funds throughout the duration of the campaign. If you are included in that withdrawal period, you will be emailed your countersigned subscription agreement and proof of purchase immediately following that withdrawal.

StartEngine assists companies in raising capital, and once the offering is closed, we are no longer involved with whether the company chooses to list shares on a secondary market, or what occurs thereafter. Therefore, StartEngine has no control or insight into your investment after the close of the live offering. In addition, we are not permitted to provide financial advice. You may want to contact a financial professional to discuss possible investment outcomes.

For Regulation Crowdfunding, investors are able to cancel their investment at any point throughout the campaign up until 48 hours before the closing of the offering. Note: If the company does a rolling close, they will post an update to their current investors, giving them the opportunity to cancel during this timeframe. If you do not cancel within this 5-day timeframe, your funds will be invested in the company, and you will no longer be able to cancel the investment. If your funds show as ‘Invested’ on your account dashboard, your investment can no longer be canceled.

For Regulation A+, StartEngine allows for a four-hour cancelation period. Once the four-hour window has passed, it is up to each company to set their own cancelation policy. You may find the company’s cancelation policy in the company’s offering circular.

Once your investment is canceled, there is a 10-day clearing period (from the date your investment was submitted). After your funds have cleared the bank, you will receive your refund within 10 business days.

Refunds that are made through ACH payments can take up to 10 business days to clear. Unfortunately, we are at the mercy of the bank, but we will do everything we can to get you your refund as soon as possible. However, every investment needs to go through the clearing process in order to get sent back to the account associated with the investment.

Both Title III (Regulation Crowdfunding) and Title IV (Reg A+) help entrepreneurs crowdfund capital investments from unaccredited and accredited investors. The differences between these regulations are related to the investor limitations, the differing amounts of money companies are permitted to raise, and differing disclosure and filing requirements.
