Lights Out To Become A Feature Film?

Anyone ever read David Crawford’s post-apocalyptic novel Lights Outicon? I did. Great book. And it could be coming to the silver screen soon as well. I received the following yesterday afternoon regarding an Crowdfunding Campaign for the project:





Action-Packed, Post- Apocalyptic Prepper Novel Has Been Downloaded Over Three Million Times Crowdfunding Campaign Launches Today at /

March 18, 2013 – ATLANTA – David Crawford’s wildly-successful, action-packed, post-apocalyptic novel LIGHTS OUT ( will soon become a feature film executive produced by Reel Equity Funding, Inc. (REF) and Atlanta-based Bug-Out Bag Productions ( Downloaded over three million times, the novel has been championed by America’s growing “prepper” and 2nd Amendment Rights communities. The Brothers Young will direct the film, with pre-production and casting to start immediately in Atlanta. REF and Bug-Out Bag Productions recently wrapped production on feature film “Remnants,” with Tom Sizemore.

LIGHTS OUT’s Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign ( launches today, with a set goal of $175,000 for production costs. In exchange for contributions, the filmmakers and supporters 5.11 Tactical, Noveske Shooting Team,, Airsoft Extreme, and Mystery Ranch are providing perks such as personal thank you’s; Limited Edition DVDs; 5.11 Tactical Rush 12 Backpacks; and special mentions in the film credits just to name a few. In addition, for the first 48 hours of the campaign, all contributors who donate $50 or more will receive a limited edition Challenge Coin (after that, the Coin is only reserved for Legend Level donors). The campaign runs through April 21.

In the tradition of “The Walking Dead,” the film LIGHTS OUT examines how a group of everyday middle-class Americans copes with a worldwide disaster that takes down the nation’s electrical grid, flips all technology off, and throws the country into a harrowing, fend-for-yourself downward spiral – as currently anticipated by preppers and planned for by the CDC, FEMA, and others. The story focuses on suburban accountant, karate instructor, and hunting enthusiast Mark Turner, who must find the strength within to unite his family, friends, and neighbors if any of them are to survive the harsh reality of life as the veneer of civilization strips away.

Initially shared by readers from a variety of prepper and gun enthusiast online communities – including,,, and — this popular serialized novel was ultimately collected and published in December 2010…

I understand the first 48 hours of the Crowdfunding Campaign ends tonight, Tuesday, March 19, at midnight. So if you’re planning on donating over $50 to the project and want that limited edition Challenge Coin…
