"Lotus" is an independent film three years in the making. Production begins in January of 2013 and will be finished later in the Fall.
A Lotus 'Til Reckoning
... is a independent feature film we are shooting in NY/CT in January. We're a tight group of friends and creative professionals who have been working closely on the development of this film over the past couple years. With a little support through the Kickstarter platform we believe we can make a wonderful movie.
How Kickstarter works
People pledge any amount and choose a reward. At the end of our 30 day Kickstarter campaign, if the combined total of all pledges for our project meets our $20,000 goal, then the credit cards of those who pledge are charged and we receive the funds to make our film. If we don't meet our goal, then the money is not withdrawn from your account and no rewards are provided. If we exceed our $20,000 goal then the extra funds will be used to make the movie even better. Aside from a 5% Kickstarter fee and a 3-5% Amazon credit card processing fee, all funds raised will be used directly in the production of the film.
In this hard-hitting, raw, emotional drama, a small Christmas dinner party takes a bizarre turn after Shelby and her two married friends take an exotic drug and begin to question their respective husband’s fidelity. After Jessica confronts her husband, Clark, and Shelby breaks a framed painting finding a letter from her husband’s ex-fiancé, it seems their paranoia might not be simply a result of their altered state.
