Filmmakers from Boston University's Film Program attempt to adapt a short story by Stephen King into a compelling thriller.
Monette hasn't been to church in years, yet he finds himself sitting in a confessional booth. A troubling series of events involving his cheating wife, $125,000 and a mysterious hitchhiker has him telling a priest his life story and how one solitary ride through the New England country side has turned his world upside down.
If this sounds like something you'd want to watch, then our film "Mute" is the thing for you.
This film will be the culmination of our entire college career. It is here where me and my production team will show the type of filmmakers that we have become. For four years we have been learning and practicing our craft and finally it is time for us to show the world what we've got.
This film is going to be a collaboration of many of Boston University's filmmakers, pouring their hearts and souls into one project. I am lucky to have an amazing team backing me up on this project and I am even luckier to have access to the equipment that will allow me to make this film.
The university has been gracious enough to provide us with a wealth of equipment to make this film. Of all the things we will be using, the most interesting is the camera we will shoot on. We are going to be shooting on the brand new Arri Alexa (http://www.arri.de/alexa/), a professional grade high definition camera. It is unbelievable to us that we will be using such an outstanding piece of equipment and we want to make sure that we do all that we can to maximize what we can get out of this camera.
Clearly, equipment really isn't what is pushing the budget of this film. The majority of the budget covers other costs such as wardrobe, set decoration, food, transportation and location rental fees, just to name a few. We are also renting some additional equipment that will be essential to achieve the look for the film we want.
We would really appreciate any help you can give. Even the smallest pledge is a step in the right direction for us.
