Six strangers with tragic pasts fight for the chance to be take part in a time travel experiment.
What if you could travel back in time and change the one thing you feel has ruined your life?
The Hummingbird Project is the story of six strangers who are called to take part in an experiment that will make them the world's first time travelers. Each of them has a tragic past that they wish to change in order to fix their messy present, but things change for the worse when the man behind the project announces only two of them will be allowed to travel back. With each person having put all of their hopes into being able to go back, the situation delves into chaos quickly as they debate who should be the two allowed to take part in this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
The idea for this story began where the ideas for most stories begin: with severe writer's block. To further procrastinate I pulled up an episode of an old favorite TV series of mine, The Twilight Zone, a sci-fi anthology show. While watching Rod Serling narrate his way into another journey into the Twilight Zone I realized, no one does anything quite like this show anymore. Shouldn't The Twilight Zone still be the most popular show on TV? Annoyed by the seeming lack of effort in our society to write good, sci-fi balanced evenly with plot and character, I decided to write what could be considered my episode of The Twilight Zone and The Hummingbird Project was born.
The script is 19 pages and the final project should finish under 20 minutes. We have one location (a lecture hall) so our production costs are fairly modest. We are trying to raise $225 to contribute to this project so that we can make the best product possible. We've already got a fantastic cast, a talented crew, and an overall motivated personnel. All we need is your help to take us the rest of the way.
Independent filmmaking can be a difficult process, but you can help make it a lot easier by just donating, even one dollar, to this project. Thank you for your time and help.
