Are you passionate about shark conservation? How about over-the-top disaster horror films where man-eating marine animals terrorize ocean-side cities? Well, have we found the collaboration for you…

The film production company that brought the world the science fiction classic “SharkNado” is now hard at work on the sequel, aptly titled “SharkNado 2: The Second One.” And if you make a donation to help fund the film’s bonus scene, which is said to feature “sharks, chainsaws, and chainsaws being used in the vicinity of sharks,” you will also be contributing to shark conservation research. Donate enough cash and you could have your prerecorded scream featured in the film or even be included in an on-camera death scene.

The studio reportedly became interested in supporting shark conservation and science after the huge success of “SharkNado,” and is hoping to raise at least $50,000 to pay for the fan-funded bonus scene. The studio has pledged to donate 10 percent of the contributions to the RJD Marine Conservation Program at the University of Miami to further the college’s ongoing shark conservation research.

Check out the studio’s Indiegogo page to find out how you can become a part of shark pop culture history. You’ll finally be able to cross “get eaten alive by a flying shark on camera” off your bucket list.

“SharkNado 2: The Second One” will premiere Wednesday, July 30 at 9 p.m. ET on the SyFy channel.
