A group of friends plan on taking a road trip out of LA until some "things" gets in their way.

Our previous films:
WHAT YOU ARE FUNDING:
We're shooting an 'outbreak' genre film in the vein of 28 Days Later that follows a group of lifelong friends living in a quarantined state. We have a talented cast & crew attached. Exciting cast list to be announced soon.
WHY WE NEED FUNDING:
Our film will require heavy special effects makeup to conceive the creatures. As you can imagine, our talented artists will need a sizable budget to work with. Though we are contributing our own money to this labor of love, it's not enough, and we need your help. Please help us, by donating whatever you can. We appreciate every donation, no matter how big or small, even if you just pass our link along.
An outbreak of a deadly virus forces California residents to quarantine themselves in their homes. The virus induces a radical shift in temperament, devolving them to their most primal instincts, however they may not be void of emotion. With military checkpoints all along the coast of California, civilians can migrate weekly to pick up their supply of food and water; the latter being of utmost importance.
Our story focuses on a young group of friends who have known each other their entire lives, save for one girl, REGAN, a relatively new addition to this lifelong clique. Regan is quickly learning that these are the type of friends that know each other inside and out... their strengths, their fears, their personal demons, and their deepest, darkest secrets. Regan, however, has never felt this connection, this camaraderie with a group of people before. She’s still just getting used to having that connection with her boyfriend, TIM.
This group has been holed up in the top floor of a duplex for weeks. They have remained completely safe from the infected and have seen little to no virus symptoms in themselves... So they think. Having remained inside their cozy apartment with the luxuries of modern technology and entertainment, they have yet to be exposed to the near post-apocalyptic surroundings.
When Regan and Tim arrive back with supplies from the nearby military checkpoint, they inform the others that their city is dry and have been asked to migrate four hours north to the next checkpoint. The group has mixed feelings about taking the drive, which causes much anxiety for a few of the friends. The heightened stress level accelerates one member’s symptoms to the point of no return; leading our lifelong friends to see the effects of the virus firsthand forcing each person to evaluate what it means to survive.
